Default Need a new race/bash truck...what's good?

Hey guys, i'm on the market for a truck that i can race on the weekends but bash too. I have a Losi Muggy and i'm not too happy with it considering it eats clutches almost evertime i'm out. I want something fast and has a wide range of hop-ups. I remember a few years back that i was gonna get a Schumacher but customer support wasn't very big, so instead i went with a T-Maxx. I have $1k to spend on the truck + hop-ups, what do you suggest?

Menace 4x4 with all aluminum hopups and carbon fiber hopups, the truck can do 65+ mph out the box with the stock engine and gearing. There is also a .28 conversion kit out for it if you really want alot of power, and other mods you can do to it that schumacher doesnt sell.

You said the magic word "bash" that means Havoc all the way. as for customer support, Schumacher kicks butt in that department. The parts availability was not good in the past but Rob at Schumacher-Rc (the schumacher superstore) stock all the parts and ships lightning fast. he doesnt seem to be around this forum much, but any time I send him an email through the site he replies immediatly. I am not kidding when I say they stock ALL parts. send him an email and say "bajaaddict" sent you. I am sure he will treat you well.

You just answered your own question! These guys will even ship free and throw in a complete nitro starter pack. Pretty cool.
