I'm seriously considering thinning my fleet down to one vehicle but I'm kinda torn on which one I want to keep. I've got an erbe, rusty vxl, and a heavily modded merv (mmp, neu, plus basically every bell and whistle you can add to a mini). I'm thinking I will definitely dump the rusty, but I can't decided which revo to keep.
My reason for only wanting one vehicle isn't financial, but more so because I don't want the hassle of keeping up with all 3 vehicles. Not to mention I'm very limited on storage and work space (I've got one closet, and any and all maintenance / repairs are done at the dining room table).
I really like my merv because it is SPEED DEMON. It's amazing for insane speed runs, but my local track isn't very well manicured so the mini kinda sucks in that department. All in all, I love the speed and the durablility, but wish the mini worked a little better for me off road.
Now for the ERBE. I really like how well it works off road, but on 4s (what I run) it just doesn't compare to the 80mph merv speed-wise. It also doesn't seem to be quite as durable as the mini either. The pivot balls pop out easily (running RPM knuckles) and from what I gather, 6s will basically cause the drivetrain to explode, lol. I know that 6s would eleviate my speed concerns with the ERBE, but I don't want to have to be constantly repairing some part of the drivetrain. However, I don't mind dropping a few bucks for quality parts that will hold up to 6s power. Is there anything out there that will hold up (cvd's, stronger diffs, trannys, etc.)?
If I can get the ERBE up to par in the speed and durability department then my choice is a no-brainer. If not, I'm affraid I'm torn!!!
