I suggest you go back to Toys R Us and look for a wheelie truck there when you get out of work from Taco Bell(We ALL know your not an "engineer", unless your using that word in the sense when you assemble my hard shell taco. ).

Go on E-Bay and type in Jato 3.3... You can probably get a used one for your budget and it will wheelie for you all day long....

beach, gravel, mud and sand are all bad for nitro buggies/truggies. Get a cheap used vehicle and get as much fun out of it as you can.

The man speaks the truth, and even used I wouldn't spend my money on a nitro to run through the mud and all. you'll ruin the engine and be worse off cause you'll have a broke car and no money to fix it. Get a traxxas brushless car that is used and you will be better off. I hate saying that because I am a race guy and traxxas is not race stuff but it is some of the best bashing stuff you can buy and it has great product support and 99% of hobby shops carry their parts so it will be easy to fix when you tear it up cause being honest they all will break nothing it totally indestructable.
