Question
Good on and off road car

I am at a lost as what car would be better for on and off road. As of right now i am only running a Ofna SC10 with a Havok 4.5 and it seems to work but I'm looking for faster with better control. Please give me some suggestions. Thanks

Rally cars aren't great off road unless its just smooth dirt / gravel.

How fast do you want it to go, and what kind of surface do you run on offroad?

I find the best on and off roader is the stadium truck. Lower cg built to handle almost any terrain and you can get an extra set of rims with pure on road tires for it.

Too funny. I have a Duratrax Evader Brushless and just got done placing an order for 4 road tires and some wheels about 5 minutes ago, then saw this thread.

I agree. The stadium truck seems to be a good choice for multiple terrains, changing out the tires as necessary.

many moons ago I had an rc10gt that i used to lower the shock collars for and then slap some road tires on. It's alot easier to make an off road car work onroad, but not vice versa.
