    As to your concern of having a rig sitting on your workbench all the time, if you do regular maintenance, it should never really break down. My rigs get a going over right after the run. Check all the hardware, make sure nothing is loose, if you have a compressor, great...blow out EVERYTHING. If you run a lot of water or mud, pull the axles apart every couple of runs. Water will get in anywhere it can. If you totally submerge the truck on a regular basis, you should do that to your tranny too. Use a good grease in your axles, tranny , and your bearings. Just all regular maintenance. In 6 years, me and my buddy Dave (I build and maintain his truck as well as my rigs) have never had a failure on the trail. The fiddling is all part of the hobby, and if you hate the fiddling part of it, may I suggest knitting? Just kidding...the fiddling also helps you learn all about your truck...

    I’m kind of on the fence between the trx4 and the scx10.2. I like everything the trx4 has like the 2speed transmission and the lockable diffs. the only thing i don’t care for are the bodies the trx4 comes with. I also like the TQ radio since my only rig is a slash. so that’s another plus. With all that in mind I would also like to try a trail rig kit that i can customize and a lot people seem to like the scx10.2. I’m a newbie to rc and apologize for the long post hopefully you guys can help with any other recommendations or input.
