Default looking for good offroad toy

I currently have t-maxx 3.3 and that is fun to play around but easily flip over.

I am looking for something perhaps little lower center gravity (you really have to try hard to flip it) and still overall fun to go on/offroad/track

I was looking at Traxxas Jato 3.3 I know its only 2wd but from the video, it sure looks fun and handle pretty good.

What do you guys think/recommend?

Jato is good for straight line on road fun but IMO doesn't belong offroad. Like someone said, truggy is your best bet.

I was looking around and saw Losi ten t truggy. It's a bit too much but I like the remote start thing. But also heard some mixed review. Decisions decisions...
