Default Need a good 1/16 scale or Larger Basher?

Need a good 1/16 scale basher that isn't that expensive any can be run in snow. Can be larger but preferably small. Let me know what is out there! Thanks!

I RACE 10th scale, but my favorite "toy" is my Traxxas 1/16 Revo -- this thing FLIES with only a 2S LiPo and the stock gearing. HUGE FUN!

If that's boring i can't think of anything that wouldn't be unless you went 1/8 scale which is a huge step up. Go to a r/c track. We race the mini-revos at Tacoma R/C raceway just for fun.

If you wanted to play in the snow I would say something larger, slash e-maxx. You might lose it be hind a snow ball. I mean your going to spend $300 on a little car anyway.
