My friend has a Tower Hobbies Nitro st-10. It was only 134 dollars. we messed around with it lots and it is a good truck. There is nothing special about it, but it is a very fast and durable truck (I know this because I crashed it a couple of times
this might be a good truck for a 1st time truck driver. I know I will be getting one!
EDIT: its actually called the ST-15... sorry
