Hey all, if you have not read my "intro" I am getting back into RC again after a 20+ year absence. My last RC was a 1:8 scale gas powered P-51 Mustang plane and I know all about having a good starting platform in which to build from. Now for my question... I am looking to find a good platform to build from with a rouged 4x4 type trail, mud, climbing type truck. I would like to buy a good base model in which to build from and would appreciate ANY idea's and or suggestions as to scale, make and models. Thanks in advance for any response.
