Sounds like a Traxxas Slash!

i'm getting rid of an e-revo. too expensive to maintain. i bought new tires, new suspension pins, new esc, a servo, and now a motor. the slash is better than this right?

As with any kind of RC if you drive it often you have to buy tires and normal parts. I can tell you that the tires for the slash are cheaper and that neither the esc or the servo are anything that should give you problems under normaly driving conditions.

Yep

I have had a Slash for a few months and have abused it everytime I have drove it. Nothing has broken yet even though I have hit walls, gone off big jumps, and rolled it plenty of times.

The Slash is the truck for you.

Slash is great bang for the buck and amazingly fun to race.
