Hi, u do not need hundreds of $$ speciliaty tools, u do need a good set of screwdrivers - phillips - 2 or more sizes, a straight, a socket for taking ur wheels off, a good pliers. and once u get the hang of whatever truck u buy u will want to modify and tweak. And if u buy a good brand like Traxxas or HPI, there should not be too much broken if any - I have a HPI MT2 SS and i have rolled it many times per day, and only cost me about $20 in parts if i bought it new.(i bought used and need parts before i could use it.

And always remeber a RTR truck is not - once u buy ur truck, for nitro - u will need a glowplug heater, fuel, and depending on the starter a starter box

[quote="Lead Head"]Hey there all I am new to the world of R/C I have a quick question for you veterans out there.

My personal preference would to start with electric,the learning curve is much easier then nitro and less frustrating when you first start out as you improve and get hooked on racing move up to nitro
