Default Need Help Choosing 1/8 Monster Truck For Bashing

Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum but not new to RC. However, the last time I was into RC was back when the gas Revo first came out and was the hot new thing if that gives you any indication of how long I've been out of the loop. Anyhow I'm looking to get back into it, but just Bashing cause racing was one of the reasons I got out of it. A lot has changed since then, brushless was only in 1/16 scale stuff back then lol, so can you guys help me choose a Basher? I know I want an RTR 1/8 Brushless Electric Monster Truck and price isn't really a concern. I've looked online at what's out there and I've narrowed it down to these four, but I'm open to other suggestions as well if there are some trucks I overlooked. Thanks for the help!

Kyosho Mad Force
Traxxas E-Revo Brushless
Hobao Hyper MTe Sport Plus

Just to elevate them here are the ones I'm not interested in:
any of the ARRMA NERO/Fazon/Outcast/etc.
Team Associated Rival
Axial Yeti XL
Redcat Terremoto & TR-MT8E
Traxxas XMAXX

When it comes to 1/8th scale monster trucks, IMHO, Losi is the king. I don't know about their electric stuff (motors/ESCs, etc), but their nitro monster trucks are tough as nails. The top of the heap in my eyes. I'd opt for the Losi and forget about everything else.

I second what 1qwksport2.5 said...

XXL 2E is number 1, the rest can fight for number 2
