Looking for an RC truck / dune buggy for my son (9yr) for Christmas. Don't want to spend over about $75-100. Have gone the Walmart/ToysRUs route in the past and got what I paid for. PepBoys has one for $150 that looks really cool but don't really trust PB's. Would be using it in the yard and on culdasac, not racing or anything like that. Want it to be fairly fast so it is fun. I kow I'm asking for good and cheap which usually don't go together. sad_smiles

Check out the Traxxas Slash………you can get them for $150-175'ish.

Durable as hell and even raceable!

I've seen that thing in the store, and it was $200+ when it came out, it's a very good brand, and it's HHHUUUUGGGEEEE!!!!

I know they had one of these at Larry's Hobbies last time I was in there.

And Victory R/C will usually match Amain's pricing for most items.

Come see us over at Randy's Hobbies. We are on 249 and Grant road just north of 1960, we will get you set up with something. We have a few trucks in your price range, and a few that are just a little more, that your son will be very happy with.

I saw the truck advertised at pep boys and it is a Traxxas Stampede with charger and battery for 159. That is a good deal for that truck, but remember, pep boys isn't going to have parts and stuff. Try looking at Randy's or Larry's, it's good to have help after the purchase when needed.
