Guys I have a Slash 4x4 which is my 1st real RC car and thinking about getting a second. I got a couple of my buddies hooked and they had to go and get them one, so one got a nitro 3.3 T maxx and the other got a 3.3 Revo. I like the Revo best of the two. I like my slash and only use it to bash with, running 3s on mine.
Here is what i need opinions on. My slash is faster than the nitros on clean surfaces but we are usually running in a lot of gravel, tall grass, steep levees and rough terrain. I can either put a mmm combo in it and turn it into a moster truck and deal with trying to keep two batteries charged up to keep up with my nitro buddies, which is hard to do cause they can just put fuel in and go again or I could just get a nitro, and keep the slash basically stock and still be able to race it if I get near a track, which isnt often but could happen and still be able to bash at home in the streets and parking lots with it. Also keep my fun time longer by having two if I tear one up and dont have parts to get it going right away.
So to those of you who have 2nd RC's what route would you go. Also like the E-Revo brushless and could still stomp their tale but have to buy more batteries and keep having to deal with charging them too!
Also, if I went the 3.3 Revo, nitro route, what upgrades could I do to the 3.3 motor to give me a little more performance than my buddies stock ones(question for those that may have a 3.3)
P.S. Notice, I stress having a slight edge over my buddies, Lol! We are all new to RC but i have had mine a little longer and have a slight driving advantage over them but that could change soon! Any other suggestions on different vehicles are welcome to!
