Anyone involved in the hobby ? Iv never had a nitro rc before.Most of the high end manufacturers out there have got great trucks, but they all seem to have thier strengths and weaknesses tough to choose.

Right now im probably looking at the HPI Savage X 4.6 the most.

Also considering Kyosho Giga Crusher, Team Losi LS2(?), and a truck my Associated.

I am, I went with the novice "ready-to-run" truck the T-Maxx. My friend has the Savage though, and that thing is real sturdy, has definitely taken more of a beating than my TMaxx. I really like that Losi LS2, it looks wicked.

I know this is an old posting, but figured maybe someone else out there is into it, and if anyone is actually interested in getting into it, be real careful, not only is it addicting, but pretty darn expensive.

Here are some pics of my truck with a 'Rustler' body on it. It was taken probably about 2 1/2 years ago. Just bought a gallon of Nitro a couple months back, so I plan on getting it running some time soon, and I'll try and take some videos...

Tell me about it. I've invested over $600 and it's not even close to being like yours. When I first got it, and after breaking in the engine, I ended up hitting the curb at full speed (approx. 40 mph supposedly their top speed) and the right front tire went air born, hahahaha. Well $50 later I was driving it again, however, the amount of work it took to replace all the parts was rather time consuming. All worth it though, they are so much fun!

That's a true statement right there, but I also wonder if the reason for it not breaking anymore, is because I tend to be more careful when I hit the jumps, HAHAHAHAHA. I mean, I don't even go for the back flips anymore.

Yeah, At first I was more careful. After it got all scratched up I didn't care that much anymore. I haven't broke anything but I have bent the front end up a couple of times. Trees don't move, neither do curbs..LOL
That's why I mentioned that I need a fail safe..:D
