u should get a Mammoth ST. It's priced at $399 and Hobby People has tons of option and replacement parts for it. It's really durable and goes 50 mph.

only thing with the mammoth is u can order parts at hobbypeople only not sure if its true but why wait 3-5days for just a small part..i think lst2 is not considered a truggy it is considered a monster truck..the mayhem ST is a truggy..
for truggy choices if im buyin for a budget around 600s heres my top 3 lists
jammin crt truggy rtr or kit
hot bodies lightning stadium pro rtr or kit
hpi hellfire rtr or kit

Dude, Mayhem ST with Spektrum Radio setup runs about 550$ out the door. Get one. Fast, Durable, Great Equipment, bargin price. You can'y go wrong. I have had my mayhem ST almost a year now, and I love it. Just pulled over 51MPH with her the other day according to GPS. Of course I was running the stock SW. 26 engine.

The new mugen prospec truggy at $650 - 700 is by far one of the best valued truggies there is - behind that - the Jammin CRT pro kit provides a tremendous value for the money.

Hellfire rtr and the xtm rtr trucks arent even in the same league.... unless you just want to take it to the track to BASH ....

Well the Kyosho ST-R's name is in fact "ST-R". Same with The Jammin CRT. MSR stands for Mugen Sieki (Racing?). The HotBodies LSP-R Stands for Lightning Stadium pro. They are all referred to as stated by Noximus though, so if you know walk into your lhs and say "LSP-R" they should know what you mean.

Ofna has a new truggy MUTILATOR with a .32 should be real fast, and of course Ofna quality 409.00 with 30.00 promo. 379.00 at Tower Hobbies If you prefer a buggy to convert the XTM -xt2 is built like a tank and plenty fast around 369.00 with 30.00 promo.339.00 at hobby people ,That still leaves you shy of 409.00, and if you dont like their radios a FM unit of your choice can be found for way cheap. Either of these are more than capable of winning against anything out there.
