Got bit by the crawling bug last year, have slowly built a stable of shafty rigs, and I think my favorite is the Axial. It's kinda the Honda Civic of the from a box kit. There is tons of aftermarket out there for it and it seems to be the most well rounded of all those that I have driven.
Also Axial announced a video contest for all of their products. I shot some video over the winter and spring with my neighbor and I edited it and sent it in. Turns out I got like 2nd place in the AX10 catagory! They sent me some cool Axial swag, parts and tools. very cool!
