kinda sounds like anything 1/8 scale and your comfortable buying(savage for bashing(or local parts support). i would suggest local purchase and if the truck dont look good dont buy it, also this way your lhs can help you along the way. i am assuming you want to buy nib which is wise. if you do buy used make sure you understand all the clutch parts etc..and that they are also included, or not. one of my first nitro 1/8 scales i bought off ebay years ago was a disaster. i lost so much money it would have been better to have bought new. good luck

OFNA RTR buggies are pretty tough. Also the SH Z-car is very tough too

Default Alright

Ok, I'm looking at the Hyper or the Savage. I'm leaning towards the hyper because I like it but i can get Savage parts locally. Now all I need is the monies, and I have realized that i can't sell my Slash. If you wanna donate that'd be amazing. jk haha

both are good bashers, i had a savage for a short time..sold it just not into monsters trucks anymore.. buggys and truggys are more for me. I really like being able to turn "at speed" without flipping.. the savage was forever upside down . but i guess its really where you run at too. monster trucks will run about anywhere.. buggys kinda gotta be on shorter grass/ or less ruff surface because they are so low.. ether way you cant go wrong. I would look into a nice truggy if you wanna go the M/T route.. believe me its worth it. I got a losi 8ight t 2.0 that I race and bash..very strong truck.. good luck
