Default New RC off road choices

Hello all
avid modeler and RC owner looking for a challenging build.

want 4wd off road and considering
- clod buster
- Tundra

looking to spend about $500 for unit understanding that another $500 will be spent on radio, servos and other upgrades.

thoughts?

Don't know what off-road means to Sscheitel. By the looks of the list, it's leaning towards something monster truck-ish, and hinting at scalelike appearance. The Tekno RC MT410 should be on the list of trucks to look at.

If you want a challenging kit, just throw away the instruction manual while limiting yourself to using vice grips, pliers, and Elmer's glue . I'm just kidding . I don't know of any kits out there that have very bad manuals to make a person frustrated. Sitting down and cutting open that first parts bag is very therapeutic, and joyful for most RC hobbyists. Having the right tools can make "the build" even more joyful. I think your biggest challenge will be, what electronics will you buy to put into your new chassis.

Hours or research yesterday did in fact have me going with the MT410. Tekin motor/esc, hitec 951TW servo, futaba 4PM radio, badlands tires.

choices left are body, 4s battery and charger.
