Check out the Losi Lasernut U4, looks pretty amazing, has a few quirks to work out but if you want to do it right then go TEKNO:

I can't find the DB48 for sale all I see is the EB48. Can you still buy the rock racer?

Those rock racers are definitely the way to go. however, to offer a more quirky alternative - try a monster slash Or monster senton.

Basically, get a SCT like a slash or senton and raise the body and put big juicy monster truck tires on. I plan on doing one in a few months.

I had a Yeti rock racer with solid rear axle/IFS. Although it was great for some things, it was not the well rounded performer that I had hoped for. If I were to go back and revisit that time of my RC life, I'd do it with a Rock racer/U4/Desert Buggy model based off a 1/8 scale buggy, or at least something with four wheel independent suspension. Most 1/8 buggies are what I consider "tanks of the RC world", and I normally would recommend them if someone is willing to put forth all the extra expenses needed for them.

In a "wooded trails" situation like OP is asking about, I think a trail truck/buggy, rock bouncer, or crawler type of platform would be most wanted if walking/hiking is in the game plan...perhaps something that doesn't make insane speed?
