I want an electic onroad car but able to ride on rougher terrain I want a car and I understand that they all break but I want something with a little more strength because I just starting out im not going to race its just to drive around and have fun I also would an engine that can go at a moderate speed so it isnt always boaring and for budget I dont really now I just want quality componets to put my car together but lets say my total budget is 500 dollars canadian but thats just a number go over it if you want. but for the chassis it would be nice if it was in the 250 or under in canadian dollars thanks alot PEACE

By rough terrain do you want it to go Off Road???

If you're just looking to stay on pavement, get a TC3 or TC4....

If you want to go off road either get a B4 Buggy or T4 Truck....

Chaos,
You want on-road , but rough terrain. You might want to try a rally car from HPI or Tamiya. Durable and cost effective.

yeah that what I was thinking because the rally car could run on smooth pavment a little rougher and maybe a little dirt track if I came across one ok so an hpi rally chassis. but what would be soem good options for the 2-channel radio with receiver and servo, electronic speed control, .05 type electric motor, and a peak detection battery charger.

I was looking at an hpi racing super rs4 I was wondering with this on rougher cement would I murder the bottom of the chassis and I see lots of kits with that requires paint does that mean you have to paint the lexan body? and does the super rs4 come painted already?
