It all depends on what you want to do, do you want to race or just bash?
Onroad or offroad, price limit, truggy, buggy or monster truck. For buugy i would go with a hotbodies D8, a losi 8ight 2.0 kit, or a jammin X1x-CR pro kit and putting in an os .21 engine. But price is the biggest factor, non of these come with an engine or a radio. The D8 is $380 the 8ight 2.0 is $650, and the jammin is $520 a basic engine and radio set up will set you back another $300 for any of these. Or for $300 an ofna hyper 7 TQ black RTR is a solid investment, which is similar to what i have. There is a lot more but your best bet is to go with ofna, losi, hotbodies, hpi, team associated, kyosho, traxxas for certain things like the revo.

that Hot Bodies D8 is the biggest piece of **** i've ever raced, the Losi 8ight 2.0 isn't worth the extra $$$ over a regular 8ight.
BUT, if you wanna go on-road, there is a ton of **** i like, HPI makes the RS4 with d-box (cheater drifter)
