Default Traxxas Nitro T-Maxx RTR Truck w/ 2.5 OR DuraTrax 1/8 Thunder Quake TORQ .21 RTR w/3C

Looking for a Monster Truck for my wife (and honestly for myself) so she can have a fun while I am out flying. I am new in RC world, started with planes, and now need some input for RC Trucks world. So, which one is better decision, first one with electric starter (hobbypeople) or the second one (towerhobby)?

Default Out of those 2,

The T-Maxx is much better! There is not many (If any) aftermarket parts for the Duratraxx! I do like the Torq .21 engine though! The Maxx has more parts out there then anyone would know what to do with! The Duratraxx is not a bad truck but, is just not up to par with the rest of the bunch! Go with a T-Maxx,Savage or if you want to try out a smaller 1/10 first and go with a Stampede as they are super tough and there is a lot of parts for it and did I say fun fun fun!

Also the Monster Pirate or Dominator are other good options. A bit better for racing. If she's just gonna bash around tho the Tmaxx is prolly the way to go.

Thnx a lot folks.
Considering the fact that I can help adjusting the engine, she decided to go with Tmaxx.
Once again, thanx.
