Question

RC offroad under $400 - 4wd, 1/10 -1/5 scale, FAST.


G'day from Australia!

I'll be concise and straight to the point.
I'm looking for an offroad truggy or buggy $200 - $400. I would love to hear peoples recommendations.
Requirements:
1. No smaller than 1/10 because it needs to be ale to tackle serious gravel.
2. I want something quality, but I don't want to be buying a name. Preferably no Traxxas please. Losi or Arrma are okay though.
3. I don't want a monster truck or a rock crawler. Something FAST, a racing truggy or buggy.
4. Parts need to be fairly available.
5. Electric power, preferably.

Thanks!

You could probably pick up a slash clone and just use upgraded parts with brushless power system. Could probably easily scrape under $400 aud

Do you have any hobby shop near you if you have which brands they have?

I have a JLB racing cheetah truggy and I have a lot of fun with this thing.

DHK Zombie is a great truck. 1/8 truggy/monster truck so gravel would be no issue!

If it doesn’t need to be brand new, you can get some great deals on social media sites or online trading sites (not sure if Australia has a Craigslist equivalent). Also, there are lots of parts on Fleabay, you can pick up a rolling chassis, electronics, and a body for under $400 with some time searching and talking to the sellers.

Hey I am Tom from singapore and I just ordered from amazon the JLB facing chertah. The car arrived but a lot of parts are missing. I have no remote controller, no batteries or motor. I am a novice at this and I am not sure how to find a lot of the parts I need to buy. Can anyone help?

Hi Tom, I am from SG as well. There are a few RC shops in Sing that are selling what you need, in stock, but in a higher price than online shops. I bought most I need from online shops (need to wait), e.g. HobbyKing, RCMart, AsiaTee, Banggood, GearBest, Aliexpress, eBay, Shopee, Lazada, etc.

BTW, FYI only, if you not yet buying anything, then I would suggest the DHK Zombie (120A) from Shopee.sg, which is only @ S$333. (I had sold my brand new JLB 21101 RTR 120A to a guy @ S$295 in a lost, 5 months ago) .
