I feel you would be better off buying a name brand rig in the 2.2 class. If you want a cheap crawler the Exceed Max Stone is not to bad but for a few more dollars you could build a venom creeper. If you don't mind used you can find Axial and losi crawlers rtr for 200-250 dollars.

Yup, the venom creeper is a pretty good kit.  It doesn't come RTR though, you have to build it and buy the motor and ESC seperate, unless they make a RTR that I'm not aware of.   Also unless you have some serious terrain near you 1/8 crawlers are pretty big, so you need big
rocks to crawl or it may get boring.

If price really does not bother you a whole lot then name brand is the way to go. The big companies offer better quality, parts support, and design. They also have much larger aftermarket support. Here are some brands I would suggest getting.

Axial
Tamiya
Kyosho
Venom
G Made
Losi
