Default new electric rc offroad

I finsihed the tamiya dark impact recently, and although it is alot of fun. I found that it wasn't that challenging to build. Can anyone recommend a good truck or car (off road) that would be challenging to build?
Thanks,
AP

Probably the most involved build out there would be the Tamiya F350 hi-lift. If your looking for a race car though, and you want to stick with a 4wd buggy you could pick up a Tenth Tech Predator. Not cheap but very cool, would be very interesting to build.

The losi kits are interesting... in that you need to tap most of the threads before you assemble the part.

Any of the following were quite fun and satisfying to build:

XX-4
XXX-4 G+
BJ4

If you're really hardcore, get one of the Losi wheelers and buy an X-5 conversion kit.

Default Sounds like you may be into modeling.

If I were going to build a car for the design, and the pleasure of building, the F350 is as cool as ice.

A good racecar should not be too challenging to build. Said properly, it should be easy to fix.
