You may be hard pressed to find one you liek in that price range. As mentioned, the Cen would be achoice with that amount of cash. But remember! It's not just the truck you need. There's more, believe me.........[:@]

If you're a newbie to nitro be sure to invest in a temp gun of some type. They're pretty reasonably priced these days. You won't regret it!

If you can scrounge some more cash the Cen Fun Factor MT2 would be your best choice. but the RTR truck is 270 and you would still need a nitro starter kit (30) and fuel (10 to 40). Then as bigblocked said, you should get a temp gun. they start at about thirty bucks and go up to five hundred. If you are lucky, you could find another Cen fun factor framed car on ebay for two hundred and run that for a while till you get money for the longer A arms and CVD's to turn it into an MT. If you want more info about the MT2 or any other Cen cars go to www.cenracing.com or let me know.

why not save what you have and then add it to your other funds when you sell the car? then you could afford to buy what ever truck you want.

Why $670, kind of an odd number for a car.
