The cheaper you buy the more problems you have almost guranteed. You get what you pay for.

I don't think a kit monster truck is in the cards for you; the SS is the best deal i can think of as far as kits. The Mad Force kit, for instance, costs big bucks.

Think RTR. You can always tear it down and rebuild it, adding threadlock and grease etc. where needed.

You want a good off-road RC for cheap, wait for the new Losi mini XXX-T stadium truck around Thanksgiving. Supposedly it's gonna be around $150.00 RTR.

Or maybe you can get lucky on E-Bay but beware; i see a lot of suckers paying more on E-Bay than it costs at the hobby shop, or maybe $20.00 less, but then they add shipping and they're still getting hosed.

You might want to take a gander at a used setup, but I would do the research and make sure you are buying from a reliable person.
You can do the ebay thing but its best to buy locally so you can see the item before you purchase.
Keep in mind that cost is always a factor, not just on the initial purchase but also on the maint. and support equipment.

Of course, if you end up with someone else's junk, you'll definitely have to learn the mechanics behind it all. How cheap are you looking?
