So which is the best?

For bashing around the backyard and occasional run in the mud, the Traxxas with its high ground clearance and sealed electronics is my choice. But be careful with running in mud and water, electronics can still get damaged.

4WD Short Course RC Trucks Top Speed

Chart: Speed data I've gathered from Xtreme RC Cars magazine. 28mph was the typical top speed.

For racing, it's a toss up between the Associated SC10 4x4 and the Losi TEN-SCTE. These are designed with low center of gravity for better cornering and jumping stability. All things being equal, buy the kit that has the best spare parts support in your area.

Where to buy these 4x4 rc short course trucks?

Visit your local hobby shop. Important to consider is the availability of spare parts such as arms, tires, etc. However if you would rather buy online, visit each company website (they usually have an online shopping facility). Or visit the rc store page for a list of online shops.
