Please tell me thats not your real birthdate and you type like that.

Anyway, do you need cells and charger etc included in that or just the rolling chassis? Best bet would be something second hand maybe or a truck or buggy if your just bashing...

No matter how he types, he's asking a simple question so why aren't we offering some help.
Shockproof, since you aren't planning to race I would take a look at the TT-01 chassis. Some very good deals can be found on Ebay but check with your local hobby shop also. You can find brand new TT01 kits that include an electronic speed control for 100 dollars or slightly higher. The supplied Tamiya speed control is not great but will be fine until you decide to put a more powerful motor in it. Plenty of bling parts are available. Especially from GPM. www.gpmracing.com.hk
I hope this helps. Good Luck

Take a look at the TB-02. It's great for bashing out in the street and is upgradeable if you ever feel like trying to race.

I'd say TT01 if you have no plans to race but if you are doing this alone I'd suggest something like an RC18T or a Mini-T

I originally started out with no plans (or no people) to race but got bored quick. Heck if I wanted to be alone, I'd resume my normal life. If you want a hobby to do alone, adult magazines are a lot cheaper....

TA-04R or TRF no limited gear ratio like the tt-01 and tb-02 . Also no need to upgrade.
