slayer is good car, but he wants a 2wd.
a nirto rustler is a good car has major balls and tears things up.
i would recommend a traxxas s-maxx. you have to go to hobbytownusa.com to buy it, because thats the only people that carry it now but it takes any maxx part.and plus its a monster truck 2wd, handles well, traxxas and is almost the same price as nirto rustler only 300 bucks.

Yea but then you'll want 4wd after you start spinning out all the time.

Get a Revo, you'll like the extra ground clearance compared to the Rustler. Plus its bigger which means you wont get stuck as often while bashing in your yard. Also if you want to start racing, it is one of the best monster truck to use.
