    What is a good Brushless car?

    I have had nitro rc cars and trucks for a long time. I decided to sell them all and get some brushless. DO you guys have any reccomendations? I will usually be taking them out to local rc tracks and riding on road. My budget is around $350 for know. Thanks. Any help is appreciated.

    I guess that means about $250 for the car/truck and another $100 for batteries & charger.

    Traxxas electric vehicles:

    Traxxas battery/charger combos:

    Note: You don't NEED Traxxas batteries or chargers, but you will have to cut and solder connectors to run other brands.

    Have fun!

    The $300-$350 range covers new in box brushed Bandit, Rustler, Slash or Stampede.
    Brushless will cost you a bit more. Or you might find a used brushless rig in your range.

    Sorry. i said it incorrecty i want to spend 350 on tha car and 100 for batteries and charger. I am looking for a brushless. Traxxas has some good brushless ones for 300-350$. I just want some reccomendations for which ones are strongest and more fun. Thanks.

    It's almost the same as asking what a good 1:1 car is for $20K. Ask a Ford driver and you get a different answer than from someone who owns a different car. A lot is personal taste.

    Looking at your to your nickname, I assume you have experience with a Nitro Rustler. Might be a good choice to get a brushless 4x4 Rustler. I have always liked the 2WD Rustler and the 4x4 Stampede. The 4x4 Rustler is the perfect mix of those two.
    But again, it's personal.

    The four I mentioned share more than 90% of parts in common. The are all equally strong.
    I imagine the same would be true for the 3 Traxxas 4x4 models.
    More fun? You asked on the 2wd Stampede forum and I'm a 2wd Stampede guy, so I say 2wd Stampede.

    It really does come down to personal preference and what you want to do with it...
