Do you have a price limit. I would have to recommend a Jammin Truggy or some thing of an equal quality. If you go with the race quality stuff you will have the best basher you can get.

Revo or a T-Maxx

Revo performs much better.

If you want an ultimate basher, go with a truggy instead of a monster truck.You'd think with the name monster truck, that they would be really durable? I'm not saying their weak, but a truggy can take soo much more abuse, and they get up to speed alot faster. I can say that around here in the midwest, I see the monster trucks break down about 75% more than truggies and buggies.

Truggies are like 4wheel drive chain saws, ultimately bad a$$ed! Personal opinion if your not a racer.

So I agree with UN4RACING when I say go with a truggy. plus associated is comming out with the RC8T soon, but also a jammin truggy can be found pretty cheap right now.

Do they stay in tune because i really do not want a car if possible that i am tuning all the time?

I know there is some tuning to be done every once in a while.
