Default New to Nitro trucks,,,,,,,,, sugestions

Ok guy's here it goes, I am new to the forum and the Nitro Monster, Truggy, scene, or i should say i will be in a bit. I have one big problem though,,,, I cannot decide on a truck. I have two main choices in mind, The Traxxas REVO 3.3 or the Hpi Hellfire RTR. Here is my situation, I live in an area where there is not a whole lot of Rc racing,,, so im going to say most of my tim will bespent bashing,,, but i want a rig that can make its way around the track also. Ok so im thinking the REVO right,,,, but how close to racing is a revo?,,,,,, but for bashing how will a Hellfirwe hold up? Well i guess the revo is more of a monster truck correct? and a Hellfire more of a stadium racer right? well i can settle for a tough stadium racer, or a fast good handeling monster!!!! well let me know what you guy's think about my delima!!!



Thanks

Get the hellfire, you will be much happier with it. The revo would beat it in top speed, but on a truck, it cant take the abuse unless you get some upgrades on it.

Go with the Revo. It is a blast to drive and there is much more aftermarket support for it. Revo's also look very nice when upgraded. They are very tough, and great for beginners. The Hellfire isn't such a beginner truck.

the revo can be a basher and a rcer as well..the hellfire or truggy will be too low to bash ..

That's true. From the factory, the A-Arms I hear are VERYYYY weak.
