I would say go with the x-factor or mad force.There both good trucks and both need a few hopups to amek them great.

The best nitro rock crawler isnt nitro, its electric If you are serious about a go anywhere
rock crawler elec is deffinately the way to go. Torque+reverse=unstopable. Tamiya TXT, Juggy,
and the venerable Clod Buster are by far the most popular trucks to mod into crawlers. If you
want something that goes fast and is a good jumper you should just get a independent suspension nitro truck. Nitro trucks just dont crawl as good imo hpe that helps

I agree the guy asked for a ntiro truck he didnt ask for a electric truck shure nitros dont make the best crawlers but hey to each his own.

and BTW means what? and yes, X-factor and mad force are both great trucks and can go about anywhere. if you choose the x-factor, i would wait for hte x-factor 2 to come out.
