I hope you guys dont get too mad at me for this, but are there any non-enthusiast models that you guys might recommend for under 100? I dont want to spend enough to get a nitro or gas but Id like something better than a tyco just to gently caress around on in my driveway.

Something like this - http://www.amazon.com/Megatech-Mega...0832664&sr=1-63

Obviously better quality than a tyco, but still a cheap one. Can you guys think of anything?

Something that can go offroad, preferably.

Just picked up a traxxas slash today, and I love it! Definitely have to go back and get a faster charger though, 2 hours is much too long.

So I spent a bit too much time looking at differenr RC cars today and am leaning towards the Traxxas Slash. Most likely not the newer AWD version because $280us + batteries + charger is getting too steep.
I picked one up a week ago, I love it. Baseball diamonds and homemade ramps are fun.

I've got a _tiny_ bit of experience with R/C cars but it was with a Slash, which doesn't seem to be highly regarded around here?
Isnt this the opposite? When I was in the market Im pretty sure this thread swayed me to a slash, and it was awesome.

Just saw one of those Traxxas KB escorts on craigslist for $150, its too bad I don't work at an indoor gokart track anymore. The owner said he used to host RC races on it and most pavement around here would be unsuitable for it.

Why did I ever sell my slash, I miss it so.

God, every time I come into this thread I'm reminded how badly I want to pick up a truggy and get back into R/C.
I only had a Slash for a month or two, and that was two years ago but I still check this thread whenever someone posts something.

I just bought this on ebay:



You push a button on the remote and the dino spits water. I'm going to turn it into a flame thrower.
