I posted about a week or so back asking those who have an ERBE and a slash 4x4 which is more versatile.
Here are the cliff notes...I want a monster truck I can do a bit of play crawling and high speed bashing but then slam it down on street tires and tear up the street with 50+mph speed runs.
So...I have done some more research... If I were to get the slash 4x I would have it set up as follows:
-Novak HV motor (not sure which wind...maybe the 6.5?) I would probably solely run it on 3s paired with an MMpro esc (since the novak HV is decidedly garabage)
-5 inch tall tires (not sure which tread design..maybe m2k's stretched on 30 series rims or some swamp dawgs)
-CVD's in rear (possibly front if need be) to hold up to the stress of the larger BL and tires
-Losi 8 shocks and mod the arms a bit to get a bit of extra travel to utilize the slightly longer shocks.
OR... an erevo with the MMM/2250 combo. I have 3s packs already but would probably buy 2s packs for bashing and save the 3s for the street setup.
I think both would be about equal as an on road setup (slight nod to the 4x4 as it is lighter and probably more tossable) and the erbe obviously wins the offroad capability contest.
Technically the 4x4 would be better at low speed crawling stuff as it would be sensored where as the MMM/2250 in the erbe would not be quite as smooth (not that ive heard it cogs much) BUT of course the suspension/tires on the ERBE will allow it to go up/over a lot rougher terrain.
So... with the above info...for those of you who own (or at least have driven) an erbe and a slash 4x4...which would you choose?
