I like the idea of a schumacher too, but It is around $550. I am not sure how available parts are either.

try the gs storm truggy [link=http://www.gsracing.com/gsracing/page.asp]here[/link]

or

the CEN 1/10 Nitro ST Stadium Truck 4WD RTR (2 speed trans installed)
T-CEN9224 [link=http://www.hobbytron.net/ST-Stadium-Truck-(2-speed-transmission-pre-installed).html?AID=10289758&PID=1377434]here[/link]

blacktop, since you want an inexpensive, durable truck. Take a look at the Cen Fun Factor MT2. I recommend that over the ST2 because you said you want a monster truck. But it really doesnt matter a whole lot. You can buy the smaller tires from the ST and put a new clutch bell on it and turn the MT2 in to an ST2. What exactly is your budget? The MT2 is about 280 to 300 depending on where you buy. Then you will need a nitro starter set and fuel. If you want more info on the MT2 or any Cen rig go to www.cenracing.com or let me know.

The only vehicle that meets your needs is really the mammoth. Its the fastest truck, and obviously its HUGE so it will be good off road. Its also cheap, and comes with a HIGH torque steering servo.
