Default Which car is better

Hi, I am new to this hobby and I am about to buy a car and I don't know witch one to get. I'm thinking of getting theses:
Redcat racing earthquake 3.5
Traxxas nitro rustler
Hpi bullet mt 3.0
Hpi bullet st 3.0
I was planning on getting the earthquake because it's 1/8 and has good parts but I'm not sure
Witch one of then is better
Also Do u recommend any for aroun 350

As far as a Ready to Run nitro car goes... I don't think you can beat the value of this.

The JQ is a good vehicle. But starting out and just bashing around, I'd get a Hyper7 and save some cash.

My RTR ran circles around my friend's Hyper 7. Bashing or racing, the RTR is far superior.

if you are patient, you could prolly find a mugen mbx6r on ebay for under $300 with an engine and servos, full on race buggy and sturdy as hell. major importance in buying something used is making sure you get it in so-called good condition, and be prepared to tear the thing down to check it over reguardless...

Any of the good quality brands of 1/8 buggy would be better than the traxxas & hpi you have listed but for a good buggy thats strong, good value & has excellent customer support the the JQ Products RTR is my pick.

Amazing that people chime in with their 'buggy' recommendations when the OP's query and list of vehicles are clearly not buggies....obviously he/she is in the market for a nitro-powered stadium/monster truck....

He asked if people reccomend any around 350, to me thats any rc car & he did mention 1/8 even if it was for a stadium or monster truck. 1/8 buggies n truggies are better than those mentioned anyway.

I had a rustler about two years ago, it was a fun car to drive. You should get the AE 1/8th buggy rtr...

Do yourself a favor and don't get anything you mentioned in your post. Get something that other people have mentioned. You will be way better off.

If you want a monster truck type this will pretty much do everything a monster truck can do and wont flip over everytime you turn and will handle alot better.
