Recommendation needed

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I am thinking of getting a buggy or monster truck for my first ever nitro powered RC. What do you guys think of Traxxxas brand? Is there any famous and reliable brand names out there that you can recommend? I am thinking of getting an RTR one and maybe start to customize later when I am more comfortable.

Can you recommend one or two including the model name from the following budget?
-under 300
-between 300 to 600
-between 600 to 800
-between 800 to 1100

Thank you

Re: Recommendation needed

Like I said in your other posts, I'd stay away from nitro for a first vehicle.

Instead of listing a bunch of budget ranges, look at what you want the vehicle to do and see what the options are for vehicles matching what you want.

Where do you plan to run it? Do you ever plan to race, or just "bash" for fun?

Re: Recommendation needed

most places frown upon nitro rc in public places and I would also agree to stay away from nitro for your first vehicle, they stink are always in need of tuning and have a lot of maintenance, my erevo can do backflips while passing a nitro rig, plus its waterproof and way easier to run, just charge the batteries and go.

Well, nitro was what I got after a crawler. They are a pain to tune, and slower than a electric, but nothing beats the sound. For under 300, I would say the redcat caldera. Its a cheap chinese brand, and most people thi k they suck. I got one because I wanted to do rc when it was to windy to fly. For backyard bashing, its fine.

Nitro isn't ideal for your first, but I understand you wanting to go nitro
