Out of those two Hot Bodies, dont get the Hellfire

If you really want a truggy get a ST-R or CRT

My personal recommendation after seeing all these cars run would be the Kyosho MP777 STR, then the Jammin X1CRT, after that I don't know. The Jammin and the Kyosho are without a doubt the dominant forces in truggy racing right now though. I have never seen a Hellfire that someone actually managed to dial into the track, infact at the last decently large race I was at there were no Hellfires at all. Tons of CRT's a few Thundertiger ST1's, a couple Hot bodies LSP's, and one STR.

the LSP is a good truck, the first gen Hellfires lick, but supposedly they fixed them, but they got a bad rap off the bat,. CRT, ST-R, LSP or ST-1 are all good. Know guys that run each. The ST-r has some issues as well, but again they are basically new

I agree that the Jammin and the kyosho truggies are the cream of the crop right now, The hellfire might be a bit better when the SS edition is released, but Hands down, I think the winner is the jammin x1crt.

I just raced mine for the first time this week end, I have to say that it was a blast, especially since I've been strongly opposed to monster trucks for a long time. I don't even consider them monster trucks, in the right hands, they are faster than 1/8th scale buggies!

Personaly I would go with the new mugen truggy coming out. The parts quality of the truck is a step above that of the jammin and it is about $100 less then the kyosho. I have seen them listed for as low as $510 shipped. Not an msr, but a full blown mugen truggy.

it's not really a truggy, it's a stadium truck, but i still count it as a truggie. lol .

anway, it's the rush evo!

a great truck for newbies (like me).
an all round basher.
also, it's made by HPI,
and it's an all round basher.
will stand up to quite alot for a cheap 1/10 stadium truck.

an all round good truck.

go buy one today at jespares. http://www.jespares.com

thanks
