though I wouldn't recommend it for beginner's
Purchased on sale and for how much I paid it came complete. Unlike Tamiyas that need a battery, charger, servo, and remote to finish. Also this Redcat came with metal bearings, metal and greased differentials, metal dog bones, and metal turnbuckle links. I have crashed and flipped a bunch of times and it is still running. I would highly recommend this for a young learning driver.
The only time I'm gonna purchase another Tamiya is if it's a RC body that I really want.
