1/8 Arrma Infraction RTR truck scratch and dent at Tower Hobbies for $199 regular price is $299 . A regular charger maybe needed if this is your first rc , product detail states it contains a international charger . Free shipping over $99 .I have already received mine , the box was sealed and did not show any damage . I have not had a chance to open it to verify the charger.

Not a darn thing wrong with brushed motors.
The Tower scratch and dent deals are legit. I've gotten them before and there was just a small tear on the box. No damage to anything inside the box.
For crawling a motor with really smooth power modulation and torque at low rpm is important. Brushed motors are really good at this at a low price point.

There are some brushless motors that can be used, but they should be sensored and require a compatible ESC; it's a much more expensive setup.

Basic wall wart slow charger and NiMh battery are included. Only thing you need to get going is AA batteries for the transmitter.

Would a regular travel power adaptor work to convert the international charger?

Not a bad deal. I got excited until I remembered this is the brushed motor version. Still a good deal for it.

My thoughts exactly…I was about to jump on this until I saw it's brushed. It's a 570 instead of a 540, but it's still brushed. I'm too addicted to brushless to ever go back (except for crawlers).

Extra heat generation through contact friction, up to 30% battery life hit due to the first point, wear and tear maintenance item.

It's misleading to say "nothing" wrong with them, but at certain price points and depending on application, brushed is fine.

Good deal, the brushless 6s Infraction retails for $649 while the the 3s is $399. Especially for someone just getting into the hobby, who would also have to invest in lipo battery and charger . Drop in some double A's and your ready to go and can upgrade along the way.

You can also go on Jenny's RC and buy a motor and ESC from one of the Arrma BLX cars for about $75 too.

Be careful with this stuff it's addicting and even the best stuff breaks. I've been through the stage of ending up with 5 cars and race gear twice now.

It starts like this.
