Best bang for a buck! East Colfax and Grant (Denver joke)

I'd say a truggy would be the best for bashing,their fast and can handle almost anything.

If you are strickly bashing with no intenton on racing - then a HPI Savage XL or TMAXX or LST XL.

If you are maybe comtemplating just a bit on racing then a Losi 8T or RC8T

East Colfax hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

If you are just going to "bash" and don't plan on attending an organized race track, I suggest a Revo or LST. Both of these cars are durable, parts are cheap and easy to find, and both can easily be converted into a race truck if you do decide to race. I started bashing in my backyard with a Revo and eventually started racing it!

I'll have to say Truggy. No specific brand or anything, they're just the most capable for the money... although I'm sure you'll get a lot of specific recommendations. They're also very popular for racing, unline the "Monster Trucks" which have limited popularity in actual racing.

Specific brands? Well, you can see from my signature what I personally prefer, but you can't go wrong with any of the "major" brands. It is a good idea to see what brands your local hobby shop carries parts for- nothing worse than wanting to go play but your truck is broken and you have to wait for a part to be shipped.

Xray, Mugen, Losi, Kyosho (pricey!) Associated, Jammin are ALL great trucks. If you are really on a tight budget CEN or Thunder Tiger aren't bad, but be sure you can get parts.
Brad "DOMIT" Smith - I'm not fast, but at least I wreck a lot.
Unsponsored, but I use/recommend: XRay XB9, Alpha A852, Dynamite 053, Airtronics M11, Hitec 5955TG & 7955TG, ABEC 35 clutch and chassis bearings, PTRCRacing shock and diff fluids, Ready Rollers ceramic engine bearings. ** Team Terribles Region 9 coordinator. ** JOIN TEAM TERRIBLES!
