    I want to get an SCX10 to continue growing my rc collection. I've wanted one for a while and was wanting to get my hands on the power wagon version but it looks like those are going out of stock noww and by the time I get to a hobby shop I know they will be gone. Would it be worth it for me to just get an SCX10 II or should I go with the older version. I have plenty of money to get the new version, what do you guys think should I go new or try and see what they have for older ones??

    Well, you can check Ebay for a used one for real cheap, plus it will most likely have upgrades already done to it. In my opinion, the II isn't really all that great, especially the RTR using the AX10 transmission, and the kit having that hideous oversized one. The II is basically just a SCX10 with the new Axle, and aluminum links. Which, I haven't heard great things of the aluminum links. So, I'd say get a nice SCX10 off Ebay, and just swap the axles out for the new ones if you like them. Other than that, not much has changed. So, to answer your question: I don't think the II is worth it.

    If I was going to buy it from a hobbyshop I have plenty of money but I don't have paypal or anyway to buy online like ebay. I need to get it but I need a credit card first

    Ohhh. That makes sense. Well, you could buy one of those prepaid debit cards as well.
