Bottom Line: I'd like to say there are a few other choices that can compare to the Kraton, but I'd be lying. The included tires are great, the suspension is on point and the electronics are brutally powerful. I can think of only one other vehicle that I've driven that can satisfy my taste for speed and durability, and that would be something from Traxxas. That says alot for the Kraton; it's a beast of a machine that will certainly give your buddies Traxxas rig a run for it's money.
