Ok guys, here it is. I sold my stampede, and mini late model. And then, plus my rock picking money, that leaves me around $500 for a new truck!!! WOO HOO! butttttt i have absolutely no clue on which one to getttt! I can't decide! One thing i do know though, it's going to be electric! So, here's the options 1/16 e revo vxl, 1/16 summit vxl, 1/10 slash 4x4, 1/10 slash 2x4. These are my options that i've narrowed down. I can't decide!!! haha so help me decide on this one guys, thanks!
also guys it can be either nitro orrr electric now i guess? I mostly bash with a little racing every now and then so thanks!
well it depends on what you want to do. Bashing 1/10 Slash 4x4 or 4x2. The problem with the mini's from my experience is they are hard to run in certain place because of the terrain and how small they are.
Slash CC 4600
Pede 2X4 Titan
Revo Fiego 8XL
well i mostly bash. and i've narrowed down my options to these-4x4 slash,2x4 slash, 3.3 slayer, 3.3 t maxx, 3.3 jato. Thanks! Please help me decideeee
Dont both with nitro... youll get frustrated with it and the ongoing costs. Go with the 2X4 slash and put a good set of driveshafts, an upgraded power system, some lipos and some MT tires/wheelss and an MT body on it. Thats a sweet setup. You coudl do the same thing to a 4X4 slash but youll run out of money pretty quickly if you start with a 4X4 slash.
yeah don't go nitro they are way to sensitive to bashing.. atleast my experience get the 4x4 slash vxl. bash the crap out of it then upgrade in the future. no sense in buying a new truck upgrading then bashing the crap out of it. lol I always say break something first then upgrade from there. Good luck! Oh yeah snag some 3s ***** lipos for like 40 bucks a battery and youll be set

Or you can get a 3S SPC lipo from a company thats not banned by Traxxas for $33... just sayin.
I would definately suggest the slash 4x4. I own a slash 2x4 with the vxl system in it and its really nice for bashing. With a 4x4 the front wheels will give the truck more power to the ground and it will definately help with steering at higher speeds.
The 2x4 is definetly best for overall bashing. The 4x4 is great but much more maintenance and 2x4 is more challenging and fun to me.
Land of the free?
I couldnt agree more i enjoy the challenge of cornering the 2x4. For me the 4x4 would be better so i can drive it all year(snow/ice). With only 2 wheels getting power it does save on maintenance.
thanks pav lol see I am still new to posting on this board. You have to excuse my mess some times
slash 4x4 all the way. durable truck easy to fix, fast truck and goes everywhere
Be sure and watch for(crunch and smash) cars...>.<
Go with the Slash 4x4, can go on more off road than the 2x4 slash and comes brushless standard
Nothin' like a 4 on the floor and a V8
They do now make a Brushless 2X4 slash VXL.... with a 2.4 radio.
Yes they do, but if he is looking to save money he is probably just going to go on ebay and buy something used with a blushless upgraded motor/esc and radio and many more things.
Get the slash 4x4 hands down. Take it to the skate park and enjoy. Replace your parts with RPm as they break. Take care of it and she will bring you many moments of happiness.
Thrash It, Bash it, Break it, No Regrets!!!
Might want to check out the rustler VXL. its the only hobby grade RC iv owned but its a lot of fun. and 320 bucks is a fairly attractive price compaired to a lot of other moddles.
nitro is not that hard to deal with there quite easy ^^ omg its a florida guy ^^
well, i ended up getting the traxxas rustler vxl with a 2.4 radio. Now I'm sort of kicking myself because i'm not sure if i made the right decisions between nitro and electric. I mean, I am really handy with engines and tune engines every day and stuff, so..?
