Yeah, I live a block away from a "100 acre park" with a new bmx course too! Alot of open unused space right now as they develop it over the next few years...

I suggest the stampede4x4 which is cheaper then the tiger and the one that I personally use at the beach. Or if you want it bigger for some reason a brushless emaxx but you need 2 batteries and 2chargers for that one as opposed to one on the stampede. The e-revo is more of a street vehicle.

Lowerrumble, be sure to check out the 1/10th Traxxas Summit. I noticed you said you wanted to be able to just play in the dirt and grass now and likely grab an scx10 jeep rubicon later. The Summit is the jack of all trades, it has a high/low speed transmission and locking differentials. In high gear, it is rated for 30mph, while it doesn't seem like much, it is quite impressive considering it weighs about 13lbs and will drag a 100lb person across the ground. It also comes with the necessary batteries, chargers and tools.

I actually like the look of the Summit better and considered that one. But from my limited research (who knew these were as complicated as the real thing!) I thought that the Traxxis 1/10ths weren't as "tough" as the MT4 1/8th scale. But I really have no idea, I havent even seen one of these in person, LOL. I am still a little confused as to what battery setup and how many I would need to have a fun vehicle. I really just want to be able to screw around as much as possible, but without "burning out" motors and other stuff. I am sure that 30mph would be plenty if I could run it that fast without over wear. I will keep watching some used ones and see what you guys think! Thanks!

I have the Summit along with several others and the Summit is far overbuilt! Nimh batteries are cheaper initially and in my opinion are safer. Lipos are more expensive initially but offer more performance essentially. I have never ran Lipos simply because Nimhs have never failed me. Also, Traxxas has much more aftermarket support so you will have no problem getting parts from anywhere! Both are plug in play, I have always had great luck with Traxxas and have no experience with Thunder
Tiger. Traxxas also has great customer service(I only needed them once and my parts were free of charge, not for my Summit though).

What do you think of this deal? And how hard would the fixes be?

A new summit is the same price. Rather buy new. They usually come with batteries and a charger. The nice part about them is their lockers. They don't really go fast enough to brake either unless you crash into a wall.

I got mine brand new from Traxxas for $499, it had a slow wall charger, all necessary books/tools, and 2 nimh batteries. I would get a fast charger immediately but the batteries last 45-70 minutes a run. Most people aren't getting that kind of run time, but I find good battery habits keep them stronger longer. And as 123Jato said, they are essentially indestructible.

Also, I have found going slow with the summit, is more fun than going fast with my slayer!
