I really do recommend the RC10 GT2. I got the RTR one, and just upgraded the engine to a OS .18. I like that I was able to practice with the stock engine and do things wrong the first time with it, now I know how to do things right with it. But yeah, GT2's are the best IMO for a 1/10th truck.

A traxxas t-max wI'll be a great basher. Most tracks in my area do not have a monster truck class so racing is not available here. It might be different in your area but the t-max is a great starter truck. The traxxas engine is asy to tune and does not give you too many problems just break it in like the directions say and you are good.

Savage is the best basher .. period. And when you want to race it, you can make it a Revo Dominator!!!

i myself own an rc10gt2. you can do whatever you want with it. i broke mine in with the stock motor. then after about 20 tanks or so, i took out the carb restrictor and set my throttle settings on my radio to let the carb open all the way, and that little motor rips! its easy to work on, and if you deccide to race it, then your good there too. that truck has dominated the stadium truck scene since AE started making them.

If you are looking to race get a truggy or buggy, there the two biggest nitro classes.

For the truggy I recomend a losi 8ight-t 2.0
For the buggy I recomend the losi 8ight 2.0

You should pick whichever suits you best.
