    a fun little topic.....whats your next Traxxas vehicle and why

    with being new to the RC scene and liking every minute of it so far i have now got a Nitro Rustler, and on the way a lot to build at least 2 E Stampedes.
    so with that i think my next one is going to be street car of some type like the Ken Block Fiesta...that thing looks like crazy fun

    so whats your next one

    Not one for a long time, why? Because I bought a KB rally 2 weeks ago and have 7 RCs!

    Well I already have a t maxx and slash, and just ordered a rock crawler (non traxxas), but my next truck will probably be a brushed emaxx. The reason being I really like monster trucks, my tmaxx engine needs a rebuild, and I prefer electric in general anyway. Also, you can get them fairly cheap. Oh and another reason, I thought it'd be cool to build a mini plow for it for the winter, I thought it would be fun to use it to plow off my deck or something like that

    We have 3 stampede 4x4's 1 rally vxl and 1 slash 4x4. The plan is to buy another slash 4x4 for me but also so my son can race with me when we start together. Then I'm debating on a Summit to take through all the woodland areas around my house. Not too mention the lock and dams round my area!

    I would like to pick up a Spartan or e-revo but probably going to end up at a lower price point like a pede 4x4

    My old 2006 model max is, I hate to say it wearing out, so I'm looking for new options.
    Thanks for the thread man.
    I have to agree the ken block looks awesome.

    Ive recently been down sizing my fleet... so im not really in the "Get another truck" mode right now. But I guess if I was going to look at another vehicle it would probably be a 2X4 slash to build up a nice slash MT with a protrac kit, Trenchers on desperado's, some sort of truck body, MMP/2400 combo... now that you can get the MIP X-Duty shafts that are strong I could build this truck and it would actually run for more than 5 minutes.... my last slash MT wouldnt.

    And I don't mean ArtAttack either. They made a nice attempt but I want more realistic than that.

    GenX... who are you man... I feel the same way. Artattack offereed to send me a sled of theirs to test but since they wouldnt let me keep it I turned it down... if someone built a sweet sled that was realistic and tough I can think of about 15 people who would buy them right now.

    im going to be completely honest here. im not really sure if i will get another traxxas. i have to do too much stuff to them to get them to be good at a track at all. dont get me wrong, i love my slash 4x4, but ive already dumped about $200 into it so far, and it still isnt done with the upgrades i need. i did like the villain ex though. does traxxas still make the villain? i went to chrysler open house in auburn hills a couple weeks ago and traxxas was there with dvd's and such. the villain is not on the dvd...

    I'm looking at getting a Slash next, or maybe something nitro. Don't know for sure yet, and whatever it is will be a while in coming.

    If I had the cash I'd buy a Summit 1/10 (more like 1/8) and drop a MMM BLS in it!

    I've got several versions of the T Maxx, a MERV, (now w/lipos), a couple brand X 1/8 scale monster trucks, a Tamiya Hornet basket case and a nitro boat. I was gonna get a nitro Rustler, but instead I "got" it as of today..

    DKnuckles, I gotta admit the Blizzards are pretty cool, and I've thought owning one would be sweet, but it's not the same thing for me. It's like driving an escort and calling it a good car.

    I have about 15 Traxxas cars and trucks that I've collected over the last 10 yrs or so. I have everything I want from the current lineup. I've considered the rally, Nastruck and mini Summit but after looking them over i've decided they are simply not for me.. I do own a mini Revo and Slash and I'm not impressed with either one. They work just fine but they're too small for my liking. Also put off buying the 4x4 Pede but I'm sure one of those will find it's way into my collection in the future.

    I'm waiting for something like a Slash sized rally car or an 1/8 scale buggy but both would need a new chassis. As much as I like my 4x4 slash I don't think that chassis would work effectively under either of the cars I mentioned. COG is simply just too high.

    I'll probably pick up a spartan since I have never owned a marine RC. The only thing that is holding me back is the amount problems that the forum members are reporting.

    Hmmm.. let's see, I wasn't really thinking about getting another Traxxas product yet, but I would have to say probably the Slash 4x4 Ultimate, and I would put in a Mamba Monster and Li-Po. That'll work for me.

    If I was in a position to buy another new vehicle, it would likely be a Summit.
