    Just for kicks

    If you could (or already do) own any second rc, what would it be, and why? Lets stick to 4 tires, no planes/ helicopters/ boats, etc.

    I do have two running R/C trucks. They are both Traxxas Slash 4x4's! I love these trucks ♡ I started out with a Tamiya TB-03, given to me by a neighbor. Then I had a TA-05, from there I got a 2wd Slash. When the 4x4 came out, I had to have one! January 2010 I got one rtr used for $150! Then February 2012 I bought an Ultimate for $50.00! I love my Slash 4x4's♥

    Have 5 ATM
    2 slash 4x4
    1 slash 2wd
    2 ERBE

    Why? Because I can!
    Im thinking my next project is going to be a brushless Baja. Not that I mind the gassers but they do get loud and people do complain where I am.

    The summit is quite the machine. With a slash 4x4 and a summit you could drive wherever the heck you want! The youtubes of those things going through creek beds are crazy.

    Thank you! I am always after a great deal! I hate to pay full price for anything. At my lhs, I always get a discount. My wife was surprised the first time she saw the cashier say," I'm sorry, I forgot your discount. " I didn't even have a coupon

    Rustler with a castle 2400 and mmp. Slash 4x4 ultimate with a 2200 mamba monster. Tow best trucks you can own IMO.

    It's important to have one in every category so you always have the right truck or car for your current mood. Hehe.
    I recently tossed a boat, micro heli and a micro quad rotor into the mix as well. Just so all surfaces are covered.

    I currently have a mamba 4Tec, mamba Slash 2x4, xl-5 Stampede, FLMed MMM E-Maxx, Slash 2x4 roller project, VXL Axial Wraith, XL-5 Axial SCX-10, Axial AX-10, micro heli, 2 Losi micro scalers, Losi micro-T, and an HPI Rush custom Nitro rail dragster. My next truck will be either a Summit or RC4WD Trailfinder 2. Or if a good deal on ebay pops up.....that's how I got my 4tec and Rush. Wasn't particularly looking for either, but got them from a guy on ebay as stock units for $90!! Both have had dramatic makeovers along with all my trucks. I have four projects going on right now. It never ends.......

    There are about 15 "what do you have" threads. This one is supposed to be about what you would get next". Theres also a few threads about this as well... but less than the fleet threads.

    I have 11 and only purchased new 4 of them....I built the rest. None of them are super special, I have too many to spend money on upgrades!

    I think I want a stampede....they seem to be a good basher

    I have 7 at the moment.

    What I really want to get next is possibly a Summit, always wanted one but I don't know how I would like the crawling, I am pretty sure knowing me I would be like " oh that was cool, for 2 minutes, now I need to sell this thing " LOL. I really do miss my EMBE though, just like a p4de but bigger.

    Thanks for steering this thread back on track! It seems that many, myself included, are contemplating the Summit. A losi mini 8ight looks like it would be fun too. I could run that in my backyard.

    Yea the losi minis are pretty crazy I have one of the 1/24 sct and with a lipo they sure do zoom for their size. I did alot of on road driving with it and was pretty much going thro a set of tires every battery pack or two....lol

    Yup Summit, but like I said. Probably not my style, I like going fast

    I have also wanted which I don't own (the boy has one). A 2wd P2de, always wanted one. Protrac kit, all STRC Green Parts, Digger body, castle 3800 with a MMP, 2.8 mashers or trenchers. This here is more likely to be my next purchase through tower, EZ Pay is just way to easy LOL.

    Just trying to figure out of I am better going with a XL5/Monster Jam and parting out what I don't need want, or a VXL P2de and doing the same.
