That's not a good way of approaching it, a cheap nitro will be nothing but trouble. If you have your heart set on a nitro model, save up and get something decent. At a low budget, you'll be far better off with a cheaper electric than a low quality nitro.

If you are trying to get something for a conversion, it is better to just get an electric RTR. Most of the cheap ones have an electric equivelent.

I would say Sportwerks too. They make alright... stuff and they're pretty cheap. Don't know if they make a monster truck anymore or not though.

For some reason the Turmoil and Mayhem ST have been discontinued . The only cars that are available are the Raven , Recoil , and Reaction .

How about an 1/8 scale truggy? such as http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ducts_id/17281
Everyone that I know that has an st-1 loves them, and they're very cheap too.

A good cheap nitro monster truck would be the Aftershock. I think they are in the $300 range and pretty much a cheaper version of the LST. There are NO TRUE (Traxxas advertizes all their cars 1/10) 1/10 nitro monster truck that is a high quality vehicle. Redcat/Exceed are out then!
