I would pick the T-Maxx because of aftermarket parts availability and it is wasy to maintain. The HPI might be a good car, but I'm not sure if a lot of hobby shops carry parts for that particular truck. The Rustler isn't exactly known for its racing heritage...

Sounds like you want to bash around. So nothing better than that than the overgrown tires and 4wd of an MT.

I would stick with the t-maxx. It might not be the fastest one out of the bunch but you can find just about anything you want for it. And it can take a licking. I have seen some videos of those doing some amazing things.

RS4 MT2.
with the t-maxx, you're spending another $50 or so to go through broken bulkheads and a picky engine.
top speed the T-maxx doesn't have much on the MT2 either.

pound for pound ,the MT2 is 100x tougher than the Maxx.
