Traxxas Rustler, Team Associated RC10T3, and many others, but those are the ones I have experience in.

traxxas rustlers and stampedes are very tough, and reasonably quick stock
rc10t3 and duratrax evaders are a little more, not as strong, but more race-engineered, but wont bash as fun
i would say a traxxas over the others, especially for som1 new to trucks, theyre very simple and easy to do anything to, and low maintenance big-time

trust the RABBIT when i say that the rustler and stampede are impossible to kill. ask savage and matt1049 i beat the **** out of my trucks daily and they still come back for more. mantaince wise it is hella simple and modability is off the charts. that is tires, electronics, battery, and motor wise. my rusty is hella fast and when i wanna slow things down a bit i get my stampede out. i love these two trucks. later.
