Default What new nitro should i get?

Its that time of the year again got gift cards for tower so I will be getting a new nitro and I want to know your opinions on what to get. Right now i have a Tmaxx 3.3, vendetta rally, and a Duratrax rtx 27. I am looking to get a buggy or a monster truck again. I am looking at around a $350 limit. I was interested in the traxxas slayer 3.3 or the ofna hyper 7 buggy. I will be doing some off roading on grass and dirt but not much mostly driving on pavement. Let me know what you guys think.

Imo.....I think a buggy would be a good choice. I have a lot of different trucks and when I pull out the buggy i alway say i should run this baby more often.
I run monster trucks alot bcuz of all the rough ground. but on tracks and ,dirt, parking lots, stone ,and track jumps like doubles and tripples the fly so nice.
hyper 7 is a nice buggy too.

You might want to look at stadium trucks also.
One of my favorite RC's is a HPI MT2 with masher 2k's on it. Flies through grass like its nothing, and its 4wd. Mine looks like a Monster Truggy the way I got it set up

yes actually
Put pics of all but 2 of my RCs in my gallery last night (they 2 are still 100% stock)
but heres the pic for the sake of ease
It started life as a Stock MT1.
Bought it this April and broke most the stock parts off seeing they were brittle from being I estimate 8ish years old seeing from what I could find about the truck, it had the original MT1 engine model in it.
Replaced almost all the parts with a MT2's, except the center gear that is the only difference with my truck and a stock MT2 (MT2's have a slipper gear, mine doesn't), Also added a wing with a mount which was made out a Raze's center brace set, baja5b wing, firestorms mount set, and the wings off a Revo. dunno if I put enough other vehicles parts on my truck yet
Would take more pics but I don't own the camera I just borrow it on occasion

I personally want a Hyper 7 TQ Black just because I drove one and was absolutely impressed. Maybe check into those. Not sure how much they are and don't have time right now to check but it's a good investment. Wonder what Jato 2.5's go for now? Those things are crazy fast on and off road.

that buggy actually looks pretty nice
Its really tempting to get one a 1/8th for that price.

so between a jato 3.3, slayer, mt2, and a hyper 7 what would be the best bet. The only thing im hesitant about the hyper 7 is parts availability and thats why i have always liked traxxas. I haven't heard too many people liking the slayer so im guessing maybe its not that good. Just looking for something different from a monster truck need opinions on these 4 let me know please

Personally, I'd get the Jato or Hyper 7. I'm getting a Jato next week (it's in the mail) and I've heard and seen great things from them. They are very fast and very durable. I'm also getting a T-Maxx which should also be as durable. You'd probably have more fun with the Jato as it performs amazing both on and off road. That's my 2 pennies.

 Hyper 7 hobao, for the money, very tough. Hyper is stronger than a T-Maxx by miles.
