    If you were only going to have one traxxas RC which would it be and why?

    I am looking to consolidate my collection to one truck, but can't decide if I really want to or what I would get since I have only owned a pede, rustler, and emaxx. I didn't like the emaxx (old version), not a sturdy truck...but I want some opinions from you guys that have owned different trucks for a good amount of time to see what may fit what I want next.

    I know I want to be able to run on the street (speed/handling) and offroad and go to the track with it.

    Thanks guys for your time and sharing your experience.

    ERBE, because it's awesome. I used to own one and sold it, now I regret it. My Slash's are a lot of fun but since I run mostly in grass now the ERBE is better for me. That's why I'm currently trying to find someone to trade both my Slash and Slash 4x4 for one.
    I need R/Cers anonymous.

    If you want to run street/track I highly recommend the Jato. Super power and torque. The thing is a beast. There is only one downfall of the jato and that is small fuel tank but you can bypass that problem with extra fuel tubing. I have 5 Traxxas vehicles both nitro and electric and I always go for the Jato first. Just my 2 cents

    I like my 3903 emaxx. I have only broken one thing out of 50 runs. Goes over anyting, and right out of the box it goes suprisingly fast. I read somewhere on the forum that someone clocked it 34mph out of the box with different gearing. I would say erbe if you have the money.

    I've been trying to decide what r/c vehicle to buy next. Was leaning toward 5.9 XL but after seeing the E-Revo 1/10 I am sold. A few more weeks and I will have one added to my arsenal. Just hope the wife doesn't find out the price. Could get real ugly...

    I'd keep my slash 4x4 because it's the most durable and goes everywhere even grass now lol.

    Probably my E-Maxx because it can do more than most real cars can.
