It really depends on what you want to do with it...

There are so many good mfg's out there now that you will be able to find a bunch of deals...

Which ever you end up choosing I'm sure you will enjoy it.

Like Crusher said, If your looking to get into racing then a RTR kit might get you started but chances are your going to be replaceing servos either way pretty quickly.

Buying a "Race" roller will give you the race quality parts that a RTR would lack but it will come at a premium so if you can find one in decent shape used you would be at a good start.

I think I am going to get a race roller and then that way I can make it more to my liking. Thanks for the input.
