Hi..I am looking to get into the hobby and I was just wondering what some good trucks are. I was looking at the CEN racing G S T 7.7, Genesis 56 moster truck,Revo 3.3, savage ss, T-Max 3.3, Helfire ss. Are these decent trucks to start off with, and I am just needing one for fun. No racing, just driving around and doing jumps at the end of my street in the park.

If you're just gonna be jumpin around aka(bashing) I would say the Savage first, T-maxx, Revo. I haven't seen much of the other trucks in my lhs's. You wanna get something that you're local hobby shop carries lot's of parts. Alot of people will express their opinions about this truck and that truck. I own a revo 3.3. Can it bash with the rest of them....sure. But mine is set for racing, something a savage really can't do well. Those are the most popular ones. I'd say don't try and re-invent the wheel. Go with what everyone else is using. There's a reason. Oh, Losi Aftershock is a pretty good truck. Just check for parts availability.

I have to agree with Grand REVO. I own a hobby shop in Whitby ( Spectrum Hobbies ) and the Savage has been the most popular choice for basher's. The Losi Aftershock seems to be the second pick. The T-Maxx is also a pretty good basher, but not quite as tough as the other two. The parts for all these trucks are very easy to come by, and we always keep a good stock on hand for them. ( just in case ).

hey man Grand REVO is right you should pick a truck that is easy to get parts for at you lhs and other store because sometimes your lhs will sell out. as for me i have a savage and i have friends that have revo's, tnx's, tnx 5.2's and even a t-max. the savage might not be as fast stock but it is stronger stock and all the hobby shops i have ever been to carry hpi parts. so go to alot of hobby shops and ask them they do it for a living.

I'll say best truck out of all three is revo 3.3. I've driven my buddy's that's set up for race and his other one set up for bashing and both are awesome, nice and fast and heck the basher can climb a curb with the power it's got for bashing get a revo (or t-maxx as I've also driven one of those) parts are easy to come by and relatively cheap
