I am trying to decide on buying the traxxas 2 WD nitro short course or the kyosho scorpion xll nitro. They are both the same money for the most part. I really like the kyosho looks but I'm not real sure about the performance. URC had the same to say about both and that was they were fun to drive after some better tires were put on the rear. The traxxas slayer has the easy start and the body can be switched out. The scorpion is just a bad ass bugy with a scale look to it. Its just for bashing and fun. I know that I want nitro for sure. The kyosho can be changed to ve if I ever decide to do so. I don't think the traxxas has that capability. I would appreciate some suggestions if anyone has any. I love this place because you guys always give me something to think about.
