The Losi XXXNT is a good truck, the Adam Drake being the better version but you need to supply your own motor etc.

RC10GT also very popular, might be worth waiting for the RC10gt2?

I have an XTM xcellerator and im very pleased with it - im lucky to have GREAT parts support from one of the stores here in Australia.

Also have the duratrax evader and traxxas rustler but i'd consider them to be more suited to bashing than racing....

Never toyed with an HPI sorry...

there will be a ready to run version. Currenty, the best bang for the buck is the rtr xxx-nt. The electronics are just superior to the ones that come with the gt and it is a very durable and reliable truck.

if not, go for the rtr rush evo, simple, fun, and fast.
oh yeh, and it looks very nice too.

but if yes, u have had one before then go for a more experienced one like the jammin or something like that.

hope that helps

I would go with the losi, it is built to endure very demanding off road tracks. This means it will be very capable of enduring bashing around your front yard. As long as parts support is good it should be your best choice. Which ever truck you purchase make sure you have the guy you purchase it from show you what you will need to watch out for to make sure your truck runs great for a long time.

I wouldnt run the Evo. Its not very good racing wise, it might be good bashing wise but if your racing go with the GT or wait for the GT2. Also Jammin doesnt make a GT, they make a 1/8th and a truggy.

I have a rc10gt truck with only 6 tanks of fuel thru it. It has an RPM radio box, Extended front spindles, Hi tech 625 servo for steer, an airtronics throttle servo. Reverse fule tank, extra air filters, Factory radio, Reverse fill fuel tank, Venom receiver battery and venom fail safe. Pinned rear tires as well as factory rears. It also has all factory tools and decals etc. OI got into 4wd's and this one doesn't fit in any more. I am open to offers, Will ship how ever you want. I am an e-bay member and you can check my feedback at e-bay deang5987

4wd means more maintanance. If you are going 4wd for the first time then the only way I would go is with the ofna hyper 8 pro, x ray xb8, or the mugen mbx-5 pro-spec. Those cars actualy wear realy well and you won't get frustrated with them. If the diffs are built properly in the gt or the xxx-nt they will last a very long time and you shouldn't have to worry about wear for a while. Even then it will still be cheap to rebuild things.
