Default looking for a new electric truck

ok i do alot of casual riding like i ride in my backyard but i also like to build ramps and run it off that, and on some occasions i take it to a course and just ride around for fun or run it in the mud and do dump stunts.....

i need a truck that will be best for what i do and my price range is 300-400

check your local track and see what classes are raced. Also, what things does your budget have to include, and how fast does it need to go?

well in my LHS they have a e savage and a e revo but the revo is a little expensive and im not sure if its worth that money for it.
And for what i need, i need a a basher and something that can run pretty fast like maybe 30-40mph and something that can handle all terrain

get the slash. $200 and a great basher and racer. with $400 you could pick up a nice brushless system as well.

Slashes are great for bashing and fun to bring to the track now and then but I have always been a fan of the traxxas stampede. A brushless stampede is so fun. But I sold mine now I miss it haha

savages are very durable but don't handle very well. If you want a monster truck i would look into the new E-maxx. It is not as tough as a savage (still very tough) but can out handle one any day. Also they are waterproof and cheap.

Also e-savage hop ups are second to none and e-maxx has TOO many to choose from.
