Default the best model to build a crawler for a noob?

with so many trucks to choose from, what would be the best or some of the better models to choose from that are easy on the wallet and have lots of upgrades for future mods?

i know this is a very general question but im lost. i just pulled my x-factor outta storage and dont think even with converting to electric it will be worth my troubles, and until im more familiar with the basics of crawling and how it all works i wont be doing much home fabrication.

thanks in advance for some guidance to a crawler noob.

Yup the ax-10 is good kit, but try looking at towerhobbies, they got quite a selection of other rtr rock crawler kits also.

I'd have to agree. IMO its way ahead of the kit version, and Days past the RTR version.
