Arrow What Car ? $600 Budget !

I am looking to buy another buggy and am needing some ideas based on the following criteria:
  • Brushless
  • LiPo ready
  • 1/8 or 1/10
  • Built for Speed !
  • 4x4 preferred

I have been edging towards the RC8.2e but want to keep my options open....so give me some ideas !

Is the budget just for the kit or for everything included to make it RTR?

Is it for racing or just bashing around?

The budget should include everything...and it will be for bashing.

After checking a few youtube vids, I am quite liking the E-Revo brushless but dont think the budget will stretch !

I reckon a truggy/truck would be better for high speed bashing.

If its just bashing you can't go wrong with a Traxxas product. That's what they are for. The AE car you mentioned is a great car but I would'nt buy it for bashing but that's me. Also check out th Savage line from HPI.
