I would get a revo, or tmaxx.. where they can take the abuse of bashing, and if you want you can race them in the monster class and still have alot of fun doing it...

Just my 2 cents worth
I have to say your very misinformed...Truggies and Buggies are way more durable then any of the MT's..... Truth be told most MT's are fragile and do nothing but break and end up becoming big old money pits...... A Truggy will be a much better basher then a Revo,T-Maxx or any other MT for that matter...

Well I am not going to turn grouseridge thread into a bitching session about what I think and what everyone else thinks... I been into RC 20+ years and have own alot of RCs. And have had my fair share of broken parts with everything I owned....

But going back to grouseridge post he said he will be bashing on a track. So with that said, then I would get a truggy. They can recover from alot more then a buggy... (Yes I own both) As far as the best that cant really be honestly answered... People are going to say Losi better, Associated better, Mugen is better etc... I would get one that you can get parts for at your LHS and have fun with it... Sure there is better companies out there. I would agree that losi, associated, mugen, hot bodies are the better companies out there. But the best ???

Also for $400.00 I dont think you could get everything you need to run for $400.00 brand new. So look for well taken care used stuff on here and your local area...

And good luck... And like I said before this is just my 2 cent worth...

+1 I agree, truggies dominate the track and the gravel pits. The pan chassis is like one big smooth skid plate and the beefy arms rarely break.
