    ORIGINAL: Radiner

    Micro-T, Micro DT, Micro HighRoller, they're 1/36 scale of fun, for outdoor and especially indoor. $80-$95, have a look.

    OR for $10 more you can get the 1/24 4wd version.

    for the extra $10 you get alot with the 1/24 4wd. 1st, its 4wd(better outdoors) it comes with oil filled shocks, ball bearings instead of bushings and wheel nuts instead of "E" clips.

    i have owned many of losi's micros. im not really a fan of them tho. even so, they offer the most micro rc's and for the money the 1/24 SCT or Rally car aint bad.

    Agreed.. the new 1/24 sct/rally which are the same vehicle jst diferent bodies is hands down the best micro out right now. May be a little slower out of the box due to its 4wd system but once you do the BL conversion, BL vs. BL the 4wd car is gonna POWN the micro t and whatever else simply cause it with actually be able to put the power down. Also, and IDKif this same setup is available for anything else, but thetoyz.com sells a chassis conversion allowing you to drop a 1/18 scale BL motor and esc! O_O Even better.... it all fits insde the stock body!!! Imagine what your sct would do with a 1/18 scale 9000kv motor in it!!!

    RE: $100 budget, whats the best micro?

    I was in the same situation as you.  I just put $20 with it and got a ZD racing 1/16 scale truck.  If you don't abuse it, it is very tough.  It goes about 25mpg out of the box and comes with a brushless motor lipo out of the box.  A couple of RC magazines did reviews of it and they both were very good.  It cost $119.99 on Amainhobbies.com.  And you can actually drive it outside in the grass and on real tracks unlike the extremely small RC trucks.  There are youtube vids of it if you are interested.  Also parts can be found at amainhobbies and MRC.

    In this case it was "for the win"... You say *insert awesome thing here* FTW!.. as in, this is the best

    Out of those two, I would get the crawler.... No micro is going to be *fast*..... so you might was well get the crawler ... I had a micro-t... I thought it was really fast when I drove it inside... then I took it outside....[:@] so slow.... lol.... I got mad at losi and sold it when the raminator version was announced a week after I bought my micro-t ... (didn't buy the raminator either... otherwise they never learn, right )

    RE: $100 budget, whats the best micro?

    Cool... hope you dont plan on racing your dad ... Did you go check out some youtube vids of the two? I did say in my last post that all micros are slow, but the micro crawler is much slower than the micro high roller.... Like I said, personally, I would get the crawler, but If i had someone to drive with me, I would want them to both have similar performance.... the high roller is going to go faster, but the crawler is going to be able to handle rougher terrain, so you wont really be able to drive together much.... which that is, depends on what kind of terrain you have to drive on.... if you have a big open indoor room, two micro high rollers would be a blast, same if you have an outdoor area thats NOT deep grass... about 1" deep grass is about the limit for these little guys.... If you dont have either of those, the crawler will probably be more fun, as you can set up little course's using stuff around the house or little rocks outside....

    See if the hobby shop will let you drive bothe before you decide....

    RE: $100 budget, whats the best micro?

    I think you would be better off buying 2 Losi SCT,s. They are more capable than micros and you can run them in far more places than a micro. A micro is harder to work on and up grades are a little bit harder. I have a buggy that is 1/36 scale and it is good fun but not as much as the 1/24 monster truck or my other 1/28 scale vehicles. A lot of the 1/24 scale vehicles run on AA or AAA batteries and that is a fantastic thing I can assure you. Batteries are then a lot cheaper and with the AA batteries in a buggy or whatever, are the same as the transmitters so all you have is a stack of AA batteries. Chargers for Nimh AA batteries are cheap and charge time is only an hour. So with a hanful of AA batteries you are off for a day of fun.

    RE: $100 budget, whats the best micro?

    definitely get the Losi 1/24 4WD. It is awesome and the 4WD makes it way easier to drive.

    Perfect for indoor, like a living room. If you have hardwood floor, 4WD is perfect, drifting is really fun.

    I actually took out the front dog bone on my 1/24 SCT 4WD just to experiment, I could barely drive properly on the slippery hardwood floor. So I can't imagine how the 1/36th 2WD cars would handle!

    Losi Micro SCT or Rally. You can't go wrong and you won't be disappointed.
