My 18 year old son runs with us... too bad we run in the dark and the cars generally get destroyed each weekend.. but half the fun is rebuilding them for the next time.. Unfortunately we have to bring several cars each to the "races" or you will be quickly watching from the sidelines.. My wife used to cringe when we crashed, but now just laughs.. Its addictive, but expensive as well...These races are mostly run with HPI RS4's and Sprint 2's during the summer and when it gets colder, we run only Slashes.. No other cars will stand up to the abuse that we put them thru.. its not for the meek..

    Oh man! That's a toughy. Both of them highly upgraded. In stock basher form I like the ERBE better and I feel its stronger. That's just me, plus it has a longer wheelbase. I really havent messed with either one of them in a while. I have some additions I need to do to both of them. They are begging me to take them for a run. LOL

    You know the ERBE can be setup as an onroad, SC Truck, and a big bad summit. They all share most of the same parts and doesnt take much to convert one to the other. Not sure this helps. If you are interested in one. The best thing is to test drive one and see if you like how they drive.

    You guys are lucky. You don't suffer from the vintage addiction. I have 3 Rc trucks and they all are Traxxas SRTs. The problem with my addiction is you're always trying to hunt down every single discontinued or rare part just to have it. Look at Daniels vintage rc and 3TRx...is never stops. I now want a LS-2 and TCP/TRX-3

    Hey Dennis,
    I remember the Latrax R/C's very well going back to 1980. I never had one as a kid. But I still remembered the Mustang Cobra and the Trans am. Those cars are commanding for a lot of money these days. Take a gander at this:

    I sold all my rc stuff about 3 years ago, due to 2 babies and buying a house.in late August this year I bought a slash 4x4, went crazy upgrades out the gate. I just ordered a grave digger and a new 1/10 rally , and got my boy son UVA digger. Yes it is an addiction, not to mention the front of my garage is becoming my personal hobby shop.
    Drive it.Break it.ebuild it.
