    Go with the Nitro MT by HPI. They just came out with a newer version called the Nitro MT2. The truck is very nice and has alot of hop up parts. Out of the box it goes around 35 MPH and by changing the clutch bell to a 15 tooth it will past 40 MPH easy. The truck handles very well and goes for 299.99 with everything.
