Help!
trying to decide what to buy

I'm trying to decide whether to get a buggy or monster truck. I'm going to be bashing and jumping but maybe some driving at a rc dirt track. Please some help.
Thanks.

Actually he's right because then you can race and make it tough enough to bash as well

something like the Traxxas slash would work well and isn't to expensive. the Short Course truck class is also extremely popular in most areas, so you would have no trouble racing it. The slash isn't the best basher, due to the smaller tires,but it can get over most obstacles, just not really high grass.

savage flux with smaller wheels would do well and do a xl conversion for better stability

If you plan to do most of your rcing on the track racing then go with a short course. If you'll be doing more bashing go with the monster truck.
