I think it really depends on what class you feel like competing in... I am thinking 1.9 myself.

IMHO, best one out there right now is the Losi MRC, but IIRC, Axial is coming out with a 1.9 soon as well. I am gonna be grabbing the Losi myself.

option 1. surf around rccrawler.com and design your rig, then build it from parts

Option 2. check ebay or the for-sale section on rcc, you can usually pick up a fully built comp level truck for around $500

for under $250 the Losi is hard to beat for a crawler that just needs a battery charge to get going.

well seeing how no one or no one to my knowledge makes a rtr out of the box in any of those sizes and i'm sure that if they do they would be very expensive. you say that you want a rig that has a ton of flex 45-50 degrees is really the most you want before things start to bind and get really tippy. the best size rig to me would be a 2.2 1/10th scale tube buggy with a dig transmission
something along the lines of the RC4WD copper head or Rock rider

Axial rtr, good starter but you'll be doing upgrades
Losi not out yet and not sure if it will have a RTR version
Venom, not rtr but has some very innovative technology
Kyosho, not rtr but a pretty decent rig

RC4wd products, they offer some RTR packages but, you will pay for them. on the flip side, you'll never hear me complain out their quality or support.

CKRC offers some comp ready packages.

Rpp can set you up with a good package!
