Personally price wise, I would say a Ofna 1/8 Ultra LX Comp RTR, from Tower hobbies, . It is a basic buggy and pretty tough, and parts are very easy to come by. Ofna makes a decent buggy. YOu can also check eBay for a rolling chassis for around 300.

get something made by Duratrax since they are very inexpensive. the car is very durable. they are so confident about the durability of the car that they will replace broken plastic parts if you break them for free! when me and my bro first started r/c, we bought a maximum mt and despite all the bashing abuse we did to it, we didn't break anything

Ah, i didn't realize that you where looking 1/10th, as Jo Gutierrez, stated above, Duratrax would be a great choice, and they make a good 1/10 nitro buggy Nitro Evader, The also have a nitro stadium truck, whihc just as good. Duratrax has a year warranty and usually come RTR so all you'll need to get extra is fuel because the RTR kit is vey complete. I would also recommend a temp gun to make sure that the engine stays running correctly. I myself had a Traxxas Revo and when it was completely dialed in it was awesome and tons of fun. Goodluck with your search, hopefully if you get the Evader you will enjoy it, I think you will.

Well that is maintance things, you always want to have after run oil for the motor to keep the mositure out, plus you need to keep the airfilter clean, so you will need airfilter replacements and oil as well, so it would be about $300 for a complete, complete setup, becasue you need extra glow plugs for the engine as well (they can go from time to time).

The Tower Hobbies ST is actually not that bad either, it based of the original Rc10GT, and I have a frined that had still has one, went thorugh 4 engines, (it;s like 10 years old) but still runs strong.
