can anyone help?!

Hi I need to know where I can find a truck that can actually climb hills and not a little "toy" truck.My truck I have now is a "toy" truck. it has good suspension and everything but can't climb hills. so I am going to buy a new one.Where I live there is a store called hobby lobby and if any of you have stores like that by you I was wondering if you know if they have any trucks that you assemble that can climb hills and stuff like that. I will go there here pretty soon but for now do you know if they have any, or if it sounds like a good place to buy one. P.S. the kind I have now is a Ford Exhibition.

Yeah, you need a "real" rc car or truck. If you want to just do hill climbing, a monster or stadium truck will do. Stadium is less top heavy but the monster will climb anything. I have an RC10GT gas powered and a ClodBuster with full tube frame with about 1800 invested so far[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]. It will go over anything and score about 2000 on an RTI ramp[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img].

Dependsm on if you want to go with gas or electric, if gas I agree on the T-maxx, but it is pricey, I have an electric Traxxis Stampeed and it does all I need it to do including hills and mud. if you don't care about how high it is tamiya has a 4x4 S10 that climbs it all.

well it depends on whether you want gas or electric. if you go elec I would recommend a tamiya txt-1 a real monster truck. gas powered go with a traxxas tmaxx or wait for kyosho newest monster truck soon to be released.
