Default New to Nitro

Hi everyone, I'm new here to nitro, and would like to know whats a good kit for my first build? I have a HPI Trophy Truggy 4.6 RTR and would like to build one for this summer. I'm not looking to race but just bash around my back yard and have a little fun with friends. Any Ideas?

Not too sure what your looking for bud but here is a few things Ive had that are some good choices.

Losi 8ight truggy

Losi 8ight buggy

Team Associated Rc8b.. or the truggy is really nice too

Mugen makes really nice stuff too

For monster trucks E-Revo brushless Edition Awesome fun!

HPI Savage-- tough as nails for bashing

hope this helps

I'll second this. I have been running Savages since the first one came out, they are like the Timex of RC....they take a licking and keep on ticking...

I can't remember the last thing i broke on one. My daughter runs it into trees, the swingset and about everything else and it just keeps going.
