Default 5th scale monster

What do you recommend for a 5th scale monster truck? something that can take some abuse and has a good drivetrain?

I think you can turn any large scale RCs into a monster. Just get a ported engine, beef up your drivetrain and chassis and there you have it! I have a 5T and it's a monster. Nothing is stock!
