I would go with either the Team Losi Mini-T, Team Associated RC18T or the Dura trax Mini Quake.

Mini-T:-Stadium truck
-Lots of hop ups
-A bit slower then others above
-Fairly strong
-Two wheel drive
-Offered as a RTR or Pro kit (you add the radio gear)

RC18T- Stadium truck
-Some hop ups (more to come)
-One of the faster cars
-Four wheel drive
-Standard sized radio gear(except servo)
-Comes with a rechargable battery and charger (1100 mAh)
-Offered as a RTR or Kit(you build and add electronics comes with some hop ups)

Mini Quake- Monster Truck
-Some hop ups (more to come)
-One of the faster cars
-Four Wheel Drive
-Standard sized radio gear
-Comes with a rechargable battery and charger (600 mAh)

Theres a brief on each of the cars which are really good, theres also many more out there from Team Xray, Venom Racing, Team Kyosho

Hope this helps you decide on which is best for you.

See i want a RC18t but none of the Hobbie shops around here carry them. and i want something that if i break something i can go to the hobbie shop and get the part i need or fix it myself.

but i will probly get the Mini T if i can get a trade for my other car for one.

we shall see

Smaxxman- what don't you like about the Mini Quake? Besides the diffs stripping out to easily, I don;t see anything wrong with it. Stock the truck is one of the best for jumping. Also with the diffs, Duratrax is coming out with some new ones made of a different material which i heard are going to be way stronger.

The RC18T appears to give you great bang for the buck. its significantly faster than the Mini-t in stock form. Of course you can speed up the mini-t with hopups, but, if you don't have to do it right away with one truck versus the other that is always a plus.

4wd is nice too.

For me, the RC18T would be my pick of the new MT version they are coming out with.

I would just buy some common broken parts as spares and have them in my pit box.
