    I bought my rustler vxl RTR from them :) I also bought an airplane from them and two boats :) not recently on those though.

    They are always prompt shippers. I am a happy customer.

    The Rustler VXL is AWESOME. Its my first real R/C car and I can run it top speed for nearly half an hour. I can tell you that you will likely not be happy with that battery choice. The Mah are sooooo low that you wont get much runtime out of it. I got a 4000 Mah 3S LiPo or was it 8000 - I forget off the top of my head. It was about $120 and worth it for me as it gives ample play time to the kids :)

    It is truly RTR - unless you count putting the stickers on ;) I just bought the overdrive gears so I can try and get some more top end out it!

    Oh yeah - it comes with the remote and everything you need except the battery (and charger if you need one)

    Yes, I've had experience with them before and it was fair overall. If you're looking for some more background details on the model, this site has some great info.
