Default Need a New Ride

So, I'm interested in a new nitro buggy but I'm just not sure on what's out there these days. I've been into the hobby for quite some time but I quit a few years back and have recently gotten back into it. I'm not so sure what's out there these days and I'd like something that's worthy of bashing local yards and home grown tracks. I don't need anything that's race ready. Just something that's solid and not too emotional. I'm not looking for something that's gonna break the bank either. Give me some ideas on what's out there that might suite me. Thanks in advanced.

Get the Losi 2.0 RTR buggy. Comes with everything you need except a few minor things. It would come with a starter box a pretty good radio and the buggy is very durable. Also parts are very easy to find. Most local shops carry losi. But that is $649.. but it comes with an easy to tune engine and its just the best bang for the buck. There are also the inferno RTR's which i have no experience with. And the Ofna RTR's.. which ive heard those are durable and around $300-400. But the Losi would be alot faster around a track and handle better and is also better quality than the other RTR's.
