    Why not BOTH! (i have both)
    I haven't taken the XO1 out at all, its still mint in my office...got both last year and have been having way too much fun with my E-Revo. It truly is a beast. The xo-1 you need to have very special requirements to have fun i.e. air strip or huge parking lot. For the E-revo you dont really need anything. You want to bash, it will bash, you want to screem around at 70MPH and you can do that too.
    Best bang for the buck would be EREVO imo.
    ERBE, XO-1

    My thoughts exactly. A friend of mine is building a xo-1 but I always wonder where is he going to drive it. Plus I would be sick if I crashed a vehicle that cost close to $1000!! Have you seen the videos on youtube of when the xo-1 crashes at high speeds? It EXPLODES!!!

    I would go with the ERBE. I think the xo would get old real fast. I mean it would be for straight street only and ver smooth, one rock and its up up and away! ERBE can be lowered down and street tires for when you wanna go fast, and raise her up and slap some trenchers or badlands for the basher days. Just my opinion. The xo1 does look cool though!

    I have experienced with ERBE and REVO-E and turn it into an SlayVo GT8 that's when I switch to onroad GT8. most of the time my trucks spend more time onroad than offroad so why not build a XO-1. XO-1 don't need to be on a big open field, take it from me, I modified mine to meet 1/8 class.


    to give you an idea of what the difference with the stock length this will pic will tell you.


    I'm always ready to build another truck when I feel like it

    Another option is buying a used revo 3.3 and convert it to electric.
    You'll have a stronger chassis and the ability to run 1 large battery.


    This is the only pic I have uploaded to my site at the moment of his blue revo-e, he tboned a blitz and popped the knuckle off.

    e-revo hands down. it is so much more versatile and you can drive it on all terrains. almost as fast but you can jump and bash it also.

    Just buy an E-Revo as everyone has suggested! It is basically an XO-1 that you can use at places other than the airport runway!


    Bash it like someone else has to fix it!
