$550.....That'll get you a XXXT RTR, XXX RTR, T4 RTR, B4 RTR, all are awesome vehicles. I bet you'll even be able to buy some extras. Check parts availability first, then pick what best suits you. The Losi's have a MUCH better radio and speedo, but either will do the job sufficiently. It's all your choice.

hmmm
Phatkat: i think he is going nitro

I would reccomend the HPI Rush Evo. I have a nito RS4 3 Typess. HPI has a very good cutomer service. or the Super N Rally it is a good beginner nitro because of it's size but it is built for on road or off road and it can handle small jumps

Default Savage 25

Get a savage 25 it is fast and can handle large jumps. Keep in mind that you can hop it up for more speed that is always an option with hobby Quality cars and trucks
