Try the Nitro on-road thread. Dont know alot about onroad cars but cen doesnt have a great buggy. So maybe they are weak in onroad as well. Not sure though

Why not order from someplace like Amainhobbies or Towerhobbies? Probably just as cheap and you can have a larger selection to choose from.

I have a old kyosho 1/8 scale rally car . although I can technically go offroad its not very good at it. it just doesnt have the suspension travel for a very smooth ride. These rally cars are more onroad cars for that reason . if you plan on driving it in parking lots and around a baseball infield its fine, but true offroad will require something else.most rally cars are buggy based. the modern day rc rally cars are now considered gt class street cars ( ofna dm1,kyosho inferno gt) due to the fact that they always worked better on the street to begin with. i'm personally not a fan of cen and would avoid anything by them . I have a dm1 and its a nice street car, Im sure the inferno gt is as well and I would recommend ether as a far better choice.
If you want a "car" that can go offroad then you need a buggy.

cuz im sort of new to this hobby. and i want to get to know it more. i feel like buying one rom a guy face to face, and getting some personal advice from him. not alot of people in my area who are involved in this hobby. so i cant go running to someone for personal help

im not looking for much off road, no dirt at all. a ride through the grass maybe, and mainly street. can the car i posted up, the subaru, handle it? because it looks very low for an "off road" car. it says off road, but i dont understand why.
