if you arent planing on any track time i would get a monster truck. im not sure what monsters are good or not but i do know that they have the speed and can go almost anywhere

A CRT .5 would be a fun starter car. Oli filled diffs, starter box...done.

get a savage x 4.6. This truck is the toughest on the market and plenty of power. The 4.6 is easy to tune and runs long and strong. It can't handle for two shits but you can jump it over your house with no breakages.

I would recommend the HPI Savage or Traxxas T-Maxx
