Default What monster truck do i get?

Hey guys, So I'd like to buy a new monster truck, I like them big and fast, it needs a good deal of stability, one that can take turns at high speed without tipping over.

What do you suggest?

I'd go for an LST2 or Revo as well.

They both handle the best out of all the MTs ive driven.

I think i may go for a revo 3.3, I've also been looking at 1/5th and 1/4th scale cars.

if your lookin at 1/5 and 1/4 scale id look into FG monster trucks, hpi baja 5b and the hpi baja 5b ss kit. search youtube for videos of them and you kan see them. if you kan get a 5th scale. cost more upfront but are cheaper in the end. gas is 3 bucks a gallon and 1 tank last 45 mins compared to 25-30 bucks a gallon for 10-15 min tanks. you dont have to tune a 5th like you do a nitro.
