Riddle me this.

What is the best performing and cost effective offroad truck rtr up to $500 Aussie dollars?

Upgradable for racing in the future.

Either the losi mf2 I think it is, or the associated T4. Either will be an awesome truck, and both should be less than the price you quoted.

Why don't you get an gas, theres nothing wrong with Nitro. Plus nitro just sounds cooler.


Even if you really want a Electric just look up the traxxas Jato or the HPI savage or MT2's


Revo looks pretty nice too ^^

Team Losi XXX T Sport. I will be buying it during the week sometime from Hobby Garage at Lawnton, Qld.

They have a clay and gravel carpark (Test Drive arena!) and the salesman let me take his for a blast there and then.

I really would love to go nitro but i am not that good with the mechanical side of things and i reckon electric is a bit more user friendly, what do you think?

really, once you get past the first week I think nitro is easier. I dont know how many newbies I see throw their electric truck on the track and make one lap and the battery dumps because they forgot to put a charged one in it. Or my favorite is when they are done and set their car on the bench and turn off the radio first and it takes off

lol yeh thas pretty funny, but i started out with nitro, loved it...until this lady complained to the city council for some odd reason. There are no houses around for alteast 1.5 miles...its a wide public open park, and its only one little area we run in...people have been running there for years (before i was born) it just pissed me off. then ig ot a electric, i love em just as much. and they are alot easier to take care of. usually every week i buy a new gallon of nitro. 2 weeks and i can buy a decent gp3300 matched battery.
