Need Help Finding A Decent Priced Truck Or Buggy.

Alright, well I've been interested in RC vehicles for some time now. But I'm just getting back into it and wanted to find a decent/fast/efficient/something that can take hard terrains, etc.

I don't have much money, but I do have money. I was wondering what are some nice trucks or buggy's out there now-a-days that don't cost a lot and are ready to run?

Looking for Nitro or Electric, it doesn't matter.

Nitro or electric?

A good nitro thats pretty inexpensive, yet great quality is the HPI Firestorm(rtr)

It runs for about 250, and i got it and everything i needed to start for 300.

A good, very cheap electric truck is the traxxas rustler XL-5. (also rtr). My friend has this, and it's 'served' him very well for quite some time.

The rtr package is like 190, and then you'd just need a batt/charger.

Woops I forgot to include what kind I'm looking for. But it doesn't matter, looking at Nitro & Electric at the moment.

Thanks for the information, I'll look and research into those ones.

You can step into a Redcat Nitro car for $125. I have 4 Redcats now and they are great cars for the money.
