    I'm terribly sorry but I don't know what a MERV is?

    Can someone tell me what a MERV is please. I see it used all over the forums and I have no idea what people are talking about. I'm kinda new to RC cars and I am getting lost a bit in the correct terminology and lingo. Thanks in advance.

    I find it hilarious that there are SO MANY (of us) who KINDA FIGGER it's "mini e-revo" ... but aren't absolutely certain. I've been thinking it would be nice to have one thread of just abbreviations.

    Another one is ERBE. Well, if that's E-Revo *** Edition ... then the "B" could just as easily be for "brushed" as "brushless". Go figure, eh?!

    Since you have an E-Revo and an E-Revo Brushless Edition, it is kinda logical en ERBE is the brushless version.

    Merv: Mini E-Revo
    ERBE: E-Revo Brusless Edition
    EMBE: E-Maxx brushless edition
    Pede: Stampede

    I didn't think that this thread would get that much attention. I thought someone would give me the answer and that would be that. But thanks a bunch for all the reply's. Does anyone know if the starter of the thread can edit it and rename the title of the thread. I would be more than happy to do that for everyone else out there that doesn't know the abbreviations. (myself included) If not lets start a new thread.
