Are you looking into electric or nitro?

Since you said MGT, I take it that you are looking at nitro?
If so, I would go with the Losi LST 2. Best monster truck out there

MGT is a great truck. I had great times with mine. I switched to the LST2 just to try something different. Cant go wrong with either.

LST2 is the way to go, i have 4 trucks and my LST2 is my most dominant. Just protect your receiver box from the snow.

Check out the thread... MGT Tweak Questions.
I just posted a few links to some great websites, regarding the MGT. Also, I'm not sure the exact URL, but there is a great forum for the LST...something to the effect of www.lstforums.com
Either way, you can't go wrong. Both are excellent trucks. I personally prefer the MGT. It is quite a bit less expensive, but the LST is only as high as it is because it comes with a quality FM Tx

you got a few choices. it depends on what oyu want to do with it. the revo and lst2 are going to probly be your best trucks for racing. they both bash good too. i would go for oen of them. im a revo owner so i recomend that. but the lst2 is an incredible truck too.

it really depends on what truck you can get parts for and how much money you are willing to spend. the LST2 is a little more expensive, but if you can get parts for it easier than the revo, go for that. but revo parts come easy. you can get them basically anywere. im gonna have to say revo over lst2.
