I would recommend the E-Revo or Savage Flux HP.

cheaper than what?

Great and cheap don't really go together.

I'd suggest a buggy as you're going to find a ton more selection for 4WD and typically a little cheaper.

How about a wheely king or an axial ax-10? They are relatively cheap compared to those mentioned and are 4wd. And the summit looks like alot of fun as well.

Sadly unless you want a dual battery truck there are really no good options in the single battery fast 4WD basher category.

We need a updated E-MT2 single battery brushless, come on HPI, I got the $ in the mail when/if they make it!

Guys, the E-Maxx and E-Revo ARE NOT a truck! They are MTs. There is only 1 4wd truck out-the Ansmann. Look that up, it comes in kit and RTR form.

I got the Ansmann.

It requires some work out of the box if you get the RTR, namely decent wheels and tires and electronics to go on/in it. Suspension is nice and plush, drivetrain seems pretty strong. I suggest you pick up a kit version, build it and throw a sidewinder cc5700 brushless system in it on 2s lipo or a 6 cell pack.

The kits are so cheap that you could buy three and have a huge amount of spare parts for bashing.

Here's one with a 11.1 and brushless.

I have been enjoying my rs4mt this winter. but they are not to be had new anymore, you'd have to look on ebay and in the forum classified ads.
