Help deciding what's next

So I can't decide what Rc to get next. I was looking twards an 1/10 e-revo or E-maxx but there just so exspencive, are they reall worth it? Any suggestion on a dinomite Rc truck? Am a hard basher and the only truck Thr has ever been able to put up with my abuse is the slash, but it dont have the ground clearance I want, any ideas?

As I can tell, you have a Stampede, and a Slash (2wd/4wd ?)

You could always put the stampede tires on the Slash and gear it down, just a thought. Might have to trim the slash body a bit to clear the larger tires.

Ends up looking like this

Had a slash 4x4 and loved it!! So I sold it for the pede bc I though I would be happier with it. I was thinking about geting the slash and doing that. Do you run lipo and will it do wheelies?

Yeap. Run lipos. However my 4x4 is converted to a buggy and sits fairly low. I have a MMP 4600kv combo waiting to go in, so I expect excessive silly power even on 2s. Esc is rated up to 6s so might try a pass or 2 on 4s to see what kind of top speed I can GPS out of it.

The ERBE will have a 15-25 min run time on (2) 5000 mAh batteries. I run a pair of 8200 mAh batteries in mine and I can get almost an hour of hard bashing time out of it.

I would not suggest an EMaxx as an option. If you think the purchase price of a Revo or EMaxx is expensive, you won't be happy with the amount of money you will need to spend on hop ups to get the Maxx durable enough to handle brushless.

Check out the Thunder Tiger MT4 G3. It's a brushless monster truck, handles better than a Revo or Maxx, way more durable, and is a lot less than both.

I actually like the xxt trigger lol, I love truggys. Who els makes a good basher? My problem is I am a severe basher and am yet to find a truggy or truck to be able to withstand my bashing. Another problem is I would like a truggy like Rc that can do wheelies but haven't been able to find on, do they exist?

Sounds like the Thunder Tiger MT4 is exactly what you are looking for. Check out wondertiger.com or the numerous videos on YouTube.

Also here: http://www.bigsquidrc.com/bash-vehicle-of-the-year/

The MT4 can take just about anything a basher can dish out.

How is there customer service, and parts availability? Also I see it's a duel battery set up and I run 5000mah 2s lipo, can you run two Mitch match lipos or forget have to be the same battery?

Duratrax Evader Brushless will do wheelies.

Parts availability is reasonable. Anything you need you can get from Tower Hobbies. There are also a couple of independent guys on wondertiger that make excellent custom aftermarket parts.

I can't tell you about their customer service first hand. I've never needed it. I have yet to have anything break or go wrong with mine. It just keeps taking abuse over and over again. It is a very, very durable truck. Handles great, too.

You can run one 4s, 5s, or 6s battery. You can also run 2s and 3s batteries in series if you prefer. It comes with a series connector to allow you to do that. Depending on how your batteries are wired, you may also want to get a Deans Series adapter from Tower or solder one up yourself.

As far as "mix and match" batteries, its generally recommended that batteries run in series be the same age, manufacturer, C rating and mAh. That is a rule of thumb regardless of the manufacturer.

True truggies are meant for racing on a track, and have lots of time spent designing them so that they won't do wheelies under power.
