My 2 sons and I are looking into getting 3 complete offroad setups. At first I was hot for the E revo brushless but when you add in 3 Venom chargers and 3x4 Lipo batts the price is through the roof plus the wait time between runs would get old fast. I'm now considering going with the Rustler VXL but my son thinks the Slash would be the better choice.
We will not be racing these trucks but there is an offroad track close to home that is open to whoever wants to play around on it. We have a large backyard to build jumps in, several vacant lots on our street and a skatepark around the corner, so these trucks will spend 95% of the time bashing. We also plan on upgrading whatever we break so hop up parts availability should also be taken into consideration. Running in snow and mud will also be part of the fun. So I'm asking you Traxxas veterans which truck would be best for us to buy.
PS,I know buying the Venom and Lipos are pricey but I don't want to have to buy them down the road after buying cheaper electric gear now.
