    E-Revo or E-Maxx

    Im stuck between these two vehicles for me next rc. I want the brushless version and that all i know. I like to mod my rcs to a point so mods to me are important. But which ones is more of a blast to drive and
    durability is key here. Thanks for the help.

    ERBE is a racer/basher type of thing straight out of the box. EMBE is a basher on my book, but it can be a racer if modded right.

    I have a Slash 2wd that I plan on racing soon and a Ken Block Fiesta. I want something that can be bashed a lot in wooded
    areas and parks. My Slash just doesn't cut it going through grass at all.

    humayray hit it up right there, strait forward. A lot of interchangeable parts between the 2 to an extent. The EMBE is a hardcore basher, has twice the shocks ( which can be mod'd into a set of 4 ), been out longer so more possibilities of different choice upgrades, like aluminum frame, etc etc. The ERBE is a futuristic chassis and layout design, fresh and very tuneable. It's a real speed demon if you ask me. This is a little bit I can currently think of. I own both so they are each good in their way for what they do. They are beasts!!!! You won't be dissapointed in either, as both are capable to bash in parks and wooded areas, because you can raise the chassis on the ERBE to accommidate a higher terrain, remember its got the same characteristics as a Summit.

    E Revo would be my choice if I could only have one. You can make it do what the Emaxx does. I have both and the Emaxx sits at home 95% of the time.

    erevo has much better handleing, can be raised up as high as emaxx.
    i like driving my maxx more than my erevo. its more challenging to drive fast, kinda like a stampede vs rustler.
    if your in to making your car as durable as possible, there is not any quailty manufacturers that make aluminum bulks for the revo

    Emaxx all the way! It's the toughest truck around!(after replacing the towers,shocks,bulkheads and chassis)

    I think you really want a revo if you came in here to ask for a suggestion.

    They are both a blast to drive. Like stated by BL-Bob you need to do what he listed to the maxx for it to be a reliable basher. Which is no problem if you don't mind spending some more cash after purchase and like to instal mods.
    The revo is the choice if you just want to unbox and bash.
    6s will find both trucks weakness in a short time.

    I am leaning towards the erevo because I have had a soft spot for it after i saw the picture in the traxxas magazine included
    my first rc (ken block). My favorite part of this hobby, besides bashing, is the after run tear down both my rcs have been in
    pieces many times. I want something different from my slash and ken block more all terrain and fast really fast.
