    There are so many trucks on the market, but only 2 caught my eye. The Axial Wrath Rock Racer and the Traxxas Stampede 4x4 VXL. Which should I get?

    That depends on what you plan to do with it?
    Those are two completely different trucks.

    Trailing and Intermediate bashing Wraith
    All out bashing and nothing else Stampede

    Pretty much two completely different trucks.

    Best trailign truck I could recommend is the AXIAL SCX10.

    Wraith is a solid axle vehicle. Therefore it is made to perform better as a crawler, scaler, Foff type vehicle. It's fast...., for a crawler... know what I mean?

    The Stampede has independent suspension so it will handle more like a race vehicle, but it's not set up to be a racer, just a basher really. It's fairly fast stock, way faster than a wraith, but not as fast around a track as a race vehicle. However, since most traxxas vehicle have almost the same chassis layout you could put say..., slash 4x4 arms and tires on it and have it perform more like a short course truck or Rustler arms and tires and have it perform more like a stadium truck, etc, etc,....

    So that being said it depends on what you want. If you want to go fast, ramp, etc. you should pick the stampede. If you want a crawler type vehicle for crawling, trail running, and just bashing around but at 1/10 scale speed then the Wraith is for you. The SCX 10 mentioned is setup more like the wraith with solid axles for trailing/crawling but is meant to look even more realistic doing so, i.e. looks like a truck off the highway (more fun than it sounds watch some vids)

    I really don't think you could go wrong with any of them if you like RC. They're all a blast in their own way... =D
