Hi mt.. yeah, i know the genesis is the biggest but the quality i believe is pretty bad, not mto mention the parts support as well.

I'm also looking for something that is atleast driveable too

Will keep looking around and also hope that there wil be more suggestions coming...

If you are looking for the largest and quality of engineering race and bashability you won't go far wrong with The LST.

The mta4 or mgt one and the same is worth a look at as well, not as strong as the LST or for ultimate bashability go for the Savage I would say just that bit stronger than the LST

I have an LST a Savage and a mt2 stadium truck and the savage has take a beating that you would not believe a nitro truck would take.

Good hunting for your new ride.

Hey
If you want to get even bigger than the LST or Savage.
Check this out!
http://www.fg-modellsport-gmbh.de/se...le-layout.html
(dont mind the german, just look at the pictures)

Instead of using Nitro, it uses regular gas mixed with 2 stroke engine oil. Can you say cheaper?
In the US you can get a buggy that is 1/5th scale - http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...=LXGMP7**&P=ML

Not exactly a monster truck but still huge!

lauterbacher make a 1/5th scale truck. looks like a heap of fun but at my lhs its 3 times the price of an rtr savage just for the chassis and motor. you would need a massively deep pocket to go with it.

there is also the new 1/5 baja 5b from hpi, looks sick, saw a video of it and it was awesome but they took the video off. and you can find a rtr molzer mowery 1/5 for like 12-1300. the baja is about 850-1000 so that would be good. but as for the 1/8 nitro's....the lst looks like it has bigger tires but i dont think it has the kind of ground clearence and def not the durability of a savage, the savage seems more of a monster truck at heart and the lst leaning more towards racer. ive also heard bad things about that mach engine....seeing as your looking for a basher id go with the savage, you can make a savage a racer also if you can dish out enough money but seeing as you want the kfx version i guess you want a basher. the kfx looks really cool too. thats just my opinion.
