Questions?? What truggy/monster truck

I'm deciding what monster truck or truggy to get. I'm just going to mess around with this. I'll also try to race it as much as I can I was kinda leaning towards the revo 3.3

If you plan on racing, you are better off getting a truggy. Any of the major brands are fine. You might also want to consider buying a used roller. I got a great deal on a Losi 8T 1.0 on here not too long ago.

The mugen series of cars are great. The best quality and second only to the serpent vehicles. I own both losi and mugen and the losi is a great car, but parts wear on it is so much more than my mugen.
Look at getting the mugen mbx6tr or just a 6t. Keep in mind losi parts are generally easier to get but mugen parts aren't as common

Well the OP doesn't exactly sound like he's looking for a top-of-the-line (and expensive) all-out $1200 race truggy like a Mugen kit with all the goodies..

And used is dodgy - you have to know what to look for, find an extremely trustworthy seller, and have a little luck..

If you plan on racing at all, yeah, get a truggy.. A Losi 8T 2.0 RTR would be an excellent place to start. All the bits - and good bits - you need to get started... If by "racing" you mean just running around on a track, and not actually participating in organized events, then an Associated SC8 is a fun and durable car for messing around.. Parts are everywhere and not too expensive(shares parts with the Associated buggies and truggies..)

If you're talking serious organized race events though, and you have the budget, then yeah, maybe a truggy kit with all the bells and whistles... If it were me, I'd look hard at that new Agama truggy(depending on parts support - need to research that), with a couple of Savox servos, and an Alpha A852 or A352 engine with 0801 or 2090 pipe.. Wicked..

A Mugen MBX6RT or Associated RC8T CE or Serpent Cobra T or the Durango truggy or a Losi 8T 2.0 kit, etc.. are also all worth considering.. Mugen is always a safe bet. Will also maintain some value if you end up wanting to sell it..

If you plan on Bashing and racing the Revo will do both if you are going to bash more than race even better if you plan on racing more than bashing a truggy would be more suited. But like i said if you get the Revo it will do both..

Also get along to your local track see what is the more popular brand out there the more people running it the more info you will be able to source and maybe the odd part here and there if needed....
