Default RTR 1/8 electric truggy

I am new to the board and to electric rc. I was looking for some advice for a good RTR 1/8 e truggy or a kit that I can complete for under $1000. I am not racing competitively or anything. My family and I built a track on our land several years back and have been racing nitro truggies on it, now I wanted to try out the electric truggy side.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Joey

Not a whole lot of rtr Electric Truggies around atm, you're better off looking at a kit (better off going that way anyway seeing as you're not new to RC'ing).

Mugen, Tekno and Durango all have solid kits, but they're on the expensive side ~$600, + electronics is getting awful close to your $1k budget.

Alternatively, you could do a conversion on a nitro truggy; either on one you have or a new one.



**Edit: I thought of an RTR truggy; HPI have one (Trophy Flux I think). Don't know a whole lot about it, but I'm pretty sure its RTR and <$1k

Thunder Tiger MT4 G3 is basically a truggy with an MT body and is very good for the price, there's also the ST-4.

Hobao have a Hyper SS truggy in electric, it's available here in Australia but I don't think ofna are distributing it in the US quite yet.

hey let us see your personal track ! does this track have big jumps ? what type of dirt ?

i run a second hand converted xray xt8 truggy with new electronic : a flux tork 2200kv motor on 6s, hobbyking 150a esc, cheap hobby king radio and nanotech lipo. about 650 dollars the whole budget

i had much fun letting this thing fly on 30-35feet long jump and landing on soft dirt
