For 150 you looking a a roller something off e-bay. Just help him pic something out and explain how he's gonna have to build it up. But to run he may find something on e-bay to run.

Go with the Stampede. It's 2wd, but it is very tough. It can be converted to 4wd if your friend wishes.

I can't really suggest any cars that are in that price range. But I would like to know why those of you who laughed, did? some people don't have as much money as the rest of us. or their parents won't or can't buy them everything they want. When I was 14 I had to buy my first RC10 buggy from money that I had saved from doing odd jobs around the house. I don't know how many times I had to let it sit because I couldn't afford to fix it. but it was a lot of fun. Now I have upgraded to my current truck, and love it. I also feel very fortunate that I could afford to buy it and continue to run and repair it. So, quit laughing and be useful. Thanks.

lol $150.00 is a little on the shallow side. I would tell him to save up and get a SportMaxx with 4WD upgrade. are a street car. Electric 4-tec is good. and you can probably find some other on-Road street car for around $200.00-$250.00

I've got a Traxxas Nitro Rustler (pro15) i'd be willing to part with for that much money.I don't really use it much anymore and it has all new front suspension parts on it(curb) and ball bearings.I'll even throw in my RTR radio from my Savage and servos to get your freind up and running.It's not the fastest truck on the face of the planet but i've had it for a long time and it's a blast to drive! PM me and let me know if he's interested in it!!

thank you mecky, i have a similar problem. im trying to get a friend into nitro rc but hes a bit on the cheap side so dont laugh.

check out the ST-15, smart tech, and duratrax. they arnt under $150 but they are under about $200. and duratradx comes with a one year warranty against breakage of parts.

I got a CEN MT off ebay for $177 plus shipping and it runs great. It's a great truck too. I am a very reckless driver and very little has broken.
