Default Help I WTB my first RC Car - Arrma Kraton 4S v Granite 3S v Big Rock 3S

Hi All, my Dad recently purchased an Arrma Typhon 3S. I had a play with it and fell in love so I want to buy my own RC Car!

I definitely want a truck/truggy shape and really liked the construction and quality of the Typhon so have narrowed it down to the Arrma range and either the Kraton 4S, Granite 3S or Big Rock 3S but not sure which to pull the trigger on. My thoughts on each are below:

Kraton 4S
- More expensive than I'd like to spend on my first car but I could stretch if it really is justifiable
- Potentially too big and fast for my first car, but I think the remote has a 50/75/100% throttle limiter switch on it - so I could use this to ease into it?
- Like the long and wide wheel base to reduce rollovers, increase stability etc?
- Love the look of it!

Granite 3S
- Good price-point
- Love the look of it
- Im worried the high ride height and short wheel base will mean I'll be doing wheelies, spinning out and rolling over more than I want (I like wheelies but not all the time!)




Big Rock 3S
- Good price point
- My least favorite looking of the three because of the thinner wheels wheels but I still like it
- The slightly longer wheelbase might mean less issues with wheelies and spin outs, but still prone to rollover due to ride height?

I'll be driving on all sorts - grass, dirt, bitumen so I guess Im after versatility and stability (as much as you can get from a truck/truggy). I might try jumps but not for a while until I feel comfortable and I'll be keeping it small time for quite a while.

I'd love to hear thoughts, recommendations and suggestions of more experienced redditors!
