Default Nitro chassis advice

hi all;
I'm looking at building a nitro off roader, nothing special, just something to bash with . i bought a kyosho .12ci engine off ebay, as new with everything except air filter. i guess that would fit in whatever chassis i get, but i need some advice on which one. i would like a truck, and was thinking of a HPI rush (evo?) but i lost the ebay auction in the last 10 seconds . so what would you all suggest i can buy for less than 50GBP (i'm on a tight budget)?
thanks,
Joe

You would be better with a Losi nt or a Rc 10 GT .

Way better trucks. Your engine needs to have a threaded shaft, short for both Or the new GT 2 takes both styles. You are on a tight budget so the GT2 is out.

I know this may not help much, but I say just watch ebay and the for sale listings here and look for a good deal... keep your options open and you will find something. If you don't find a roller that's what you want pick up one that has a motor etc and you can use your .12 as a back up or sell it for some more funds...

l i JUST bought the engine, so i don't really want to sell it on yet. i couldn't find any RC10gt's on ebay, so i think i'll stick to the rush, after all, its only for bashing. i placed a bid on one with a seized engine. i imagine the Kyosho .12 is better than the t-15 stock for the rush evo?

If you were local to the USA I would say give the Academy RTG4P from Ultimate hobbies a look. They are selling them for $99, and thats the pro kit. its a 4wd 1/10 scale nitro truck.
