Default Newbie in need of advice choosing a basher

Sorry for the strange title.

Im looking to buy either a buggy or stadium truck for racing around the back yard, and to use in the park behind where i live.
So the this will be mostly grass and gravel.

I might make a ramp or two for jumps but nothing to big, mainly just for an obstacle rather than trying to get big air.
Whatever I buy it must be fairly fast and durable as I dont want anything that breaks easily.

Has to be electric also, I have a shortlist and all other suggestions are welcome, hopefully I wil choose somethng to buy based on this thread.

Traxxas Bandit
Traxxas Rustler
RC10 B4
RC10 T4 Truck
HPI E-Firestorm
Losi xxx (expensive)
Losi Speed T (expensive)

Thanks for looking guys

Default RE: Newbie in need of advice

You might want to post this in a different forum, but I will still try to help out. I have always been a fan of the RC10 series. They have been around for a long time and are very refined however, I have not looked into 1/10 scales for a years so I do not know about the others. just a word of advice though, 1/10 scale buggies and stadium trucks do not run incredibly well on grass. In fact, I have to be very careful of engine temperatures when I run my 1/8 scale nitro buggy on grass. Being that you are a newbie, you are probably going to do a lot more bashing then racing. If I were you, I would consider a monster truck.
