Kyosho Mini Inferno. Look on ebay and google for more suppliers. They are solid and cost has come down quite a bit.

At first I thought the CEN MG 16 was really nice but EVERY tiime we take ours out we break something. Dumb stuff like body posts, bumper mounts, wheels, even spurs. These are all parts that should be somewhat pliable and made of good quality nylon, parts you would expect not to break on other cars and trucks. It's frustrating because it's fast and fun when something doesn't break off. The engine runs great but every time it cartwheels there's some type of damage. I'm not new to R/C, I've had every type of vehicle you can think of except maybe a Blizzard, and the CEN MGs are the first car where I've actually broken something every time I've taken one out. The plastic is so brittle don't even think about going out when it's 45 degrees or less. I don't think I could buy another CEN after owning these.
