Default looking for help

Hi everyone,

Little over a year ago i had a Revo 2.3 that i bought and was just getting into off road racing. Never did make it to a track with a new baby and just life in general. Long story short my revo was stolen out of my car one day and never bothered to buy a new truck. Well i have decided on getting back into it and have a couple of questions, Ive been looking around at all the other models out there and over the course of a year or so theres been a ton of other options out there, ive been looking at the losi 8ight and others along that line. Need some recomends on a off road truck that would be great out of the box with maybe some mods down the road. Or do they make a truck for off road and carpet? Man things can change in a year or so. Any help would be great.

If you want a MT I would go with the lst2. If you are looking for an electric that can go offroad and on the carpet then a stadium truck is probably what you are looking for (xxx-t,t-4). They make foam tires for carpet use with st's. I would highly suggest a lst2 if you want a nito mt. The price is higher than the others, but you get what you pay for.

I would stick with what you had...get a 3.3 Revo. They're pretty solid trucks and they make tons of upgrades for them and with the right mods you could have a solid racer.
