I'm with TNT on that one. What do you mean by "Badger?" The only Badger I am aware of is a brand that makes paint accessories for the RC word. If you are referring to an RC vehicle, that would depend on if you are looking at gas or electric and what scale.

If basher is what you meant, I would go traxxas 1/16 E-Revo VXL. Pretty tough, fast, and replacement/aftermarket parts are plentiful but cheap it is not. I myself am not a big traxxas fan but given your parameters I would put this at the top of my considerations. Actually, after saving a few extra dollars, I wouldn't consider anything else but I am only an opinion. Good times await...

go on Ebay, type in RC car, type in your max amount of money you are willing to pay, and sort by High Price to Low Price. You will find something. More likely, it will be made by Tyco or New Bright. You won't find anything fast or hobby quality.

Can get a wltoy 12428..run about 75 to 100$ Bottom line hobby grade, can hop it up to metal gears and brushless motor and pretty much anything if you can wait for parts from china( can find some parts from US through ebay sometimes). Fast for a cheap car, does 30 as is with brushed motor. If you order it might wanna get the metal gear servo upgrade with it, its 15bucks extra but the plastic gear servo it comes with can be an issue. Atleast get a servo saver.
