    you can always get the slash 2wd vxl its a great all around truck and a great starting car! its super durable and is all water proof so say accidentally after the sprinklers went on you went in the grass your truck will be safe. has to be one of the better bashing trucks out there and i picked mine up shipped to my door for $311.00 so its pretty close to your price range it has 2.4 ghz radio so no worry about glitches or interference.

    full throttle or else it must be broke but breaking it is just another reason to build it bigger and better than before!

    2wd is great I love my vxl rustler but 4wd is much easier to drive, Something to think about before you buy..

    Blue loctite on your shock caps is your friend!

    @TheMdot: you sir, are a genius! I never even thought about putting Lok-tite on shock caps. Seriously, greatest idea ever...

    For that price you can have a much better truck - SC10RS!!!

    You can also get leftover original Blitz RTRs for about $185, but they aren't 2.4GHz or brushless.

    And you can find a much better place to order. Stormer Hobbies has the Slash for under $300 without fake, garbage "coupons". Tower jacks up their prices and then acts like their stupid coupons are giving you a bargain.
