Is it true that any truck can break easily? i was thinking about getting the t-maxx, & i'm only gonna race it up and down my street,in my backyard,take it on dirt and grass but no jumps.

yes any truck can break without doing jumps. before deciding which truck to get, find out which one has the most parts available at your local hobby store. the t-maxx is a good truck. a friend of mine has one and one day we were running our trucks behind his house and he broke his fuel tank. things break, it is part of the price of "playing". but if the parts to fix it are right down the road its not a big deal. i have a prp raptor which is bigger than the t-maxx but when i need parts i have to order them from ca. (1300 miles away). hope this helps.

Any of the trucks from the bigger companies are good. T-Maxx, LST, Monster GT, etc... It's all a matter of how fast you'll run into the very solid stationary object, like we all have.

Like was mentioned above, check out the local shops for part's availability. Go with a truch you can part's for easily.
