    Should I save for a Mini E-revo?

    Greetings Earthlings. I come in peace to ask of you information.
    Should I buy a Merv!? I've seen them run and they're awesome! I thought it would be a good little car to sit beside my Rustler VXL. It would be nice and compact for travelling. What do you guys think?
    Thanks
    Can you break a Rusty?
    Umm...No...No, you can't.

    I drove mine in the dirt today with my Slash 4x4's and it was even cooler than I had hoped for. Save up for one for sure!

    YES. I love my merv. I plan on converting it to match my full size summit however.

    if i had to do it again, i would get the new 1/16th summit or the 1/10th e-revo..... but the mini is smaller and a lot more portable

    i love my merv, it is pretty built up now, well at least i think so

    I'm still amazed at my month old Rustler VXL, but I've been very interested in the E-revo as well, but a bit out of my price range, the Rustler is big and fast enough for me, but I would like to get my first 4x4 small car that is easier to take places than my Rusty (like going on holidays where space in the car is minimal. The merv is also not too highly priced, fairly similar to the Rustler. I think I'll buy things for the Rusty first and then start saving a bit of cash for the merv. Unfortunately my cash flow isn't exactly huge as I'm only 14...

    Money for the poor....?

    get one you wont be sorry. and i would suggest getting lipo for it it takes it to a whole new level and its cheaper then nimh if you already have a charger that can charge lipos if not then it is only a bit more.
