I was thinking about getting one for my dad for his birthday. Is there anything decent in the $100 range available on Amazon? Or should I just get him the kids fire truck with siren? :flipoff2:

Danchee Ridgerock for sure. I bought one for my kids and out of all the (much more expensive) rc crawlers we have

the ridgerock is the only one still working perfectly. And it has 4 wheel steer and is a crawling SOB

Thanks guys! Ended up getting the Axial because it kinda looks like a Scout the old man had when he was younger. :usa:

Nice, can't really go wrong with the Axials. I have a couple mildly built older SCX10s, but got my kids some of the SCX24s and kept them stock because that's a black hole once you start tinkering. Nice thing about this scale is they're the same as many model car kits, so lots of body options.

My kid has a litehawk lil tom. It's been abused by a 3 now 4 year old for nearly a year. I had to replace both axles (it's driven at each axle), for nearly $25CAD. For what it is, it's worth two or 3 times the price.

I've been rocking a TRX4 for a few weeks now. Its freaking awesome. My kid uses an old, old, OLD 2WD Stampede and he's getting frustrated with it. Probably be getting him a TRX before long as well. But, it is a bit more than $100. :laughing:

Picked it up Wednesday.. It IS an MN99S... I like it .. Doesn't look like parts are a problem . .. MN99 parts are all over eBay. Even lots of upgrades. Ordering Thru Napa is a great deal too.. Almost $30. less than anybody else . 👍👍
