    Everybody will tell you to get a e-revo all day long. Of course it is better. It is a new design over the e-maxx. I have both. I do prefer my e-maxx do to easier tear down, and rebuild. Then i do love my e-revo for road racing. It all depends on what you want to do. On road id go e-revo. Off road id go e-maxx all day long. Both trucks break basiclly the same parts, but luckily there are aluminum upgrades for both. Peace

    The Erevo can be built to be a road racer or and off road basher eaiser than the Emaxx imo. As seen here, these are all the same Erevo. I know you can do similar with the Emaxx but it cant really go from basher to buggy as easily.

    I own both and in nitro and electric, I like the Emaxx much better but it takes a lot of upgrading. the Emaxx is a better monster truck for jumping and bashing. but racing around of course the revo is better, its a much lower design. look the the phantom chassis for the Emaxx should make it one awesome truck. If i was buying another monster truck which i am its going to be a rival. comes stock with 8mm stubs and aluminum chassis and bulks, traxxas has to step it up with the emaxx.

    I had the E-maxx, keyword "had". Now I'm a happy owner of an E-Revo and Summit. get the Erevo, you won't regret it, if you are after that truck look then just get a different body and tires if you'd like, you will still have a better truck this way. you can also go from truck mode to race/buggy mode much easier.

    where all the E-MAXX owners at? I have not own an E-Maxx but I had 3 T-Maxx and with the right hop-ups it can be as durable as a stock E-REVO.

    The E-Revo is more durable out of the box. E-Maxx needs some upgrades to compete with a stock e-revo in terms of durability.

    tNo offence to you or anybody ok. But the broken e-revo threads on the community forum say otherwise. I can find just as many e-revo problems as i can e-maxx problems, and there basically the same areas, bulkheads, shock towers, diffs, a-arms, axles, chassy,. Is it even durability problems anymore. It seems everyone fries electronics more nowadays than actually breaking parts.

    I've had both... In my opinion go erevo. It's new technology and design great handling bashing all around and racing..

    I will admit i was doing back flips, and water bashing with my mm2 e-revo last sunday out on a sandbar. It handled it very well. I was even running waterlogged summit wheels. I think it helped on the impact, lol. I did blow both rear tires. That was awesome. Unfortunately my friend used fowl language in the video, so it is not allowed on the forum. I know you'd all be impressed when you see water blow out of my rear tires in the middle of a back flip.. I would not have done that with my e-maxx.

    There's your answer!

    Don't get me wrong neither are indestructible bashers, but the erevo is a better design IMO and is definitely better out of the box. Much better handling etc. But just like the Emaxx it has its weaknesses - they are in the front and back of the truck and I think Traxxas calls them "diffs"?? Someone correct me on that if necessary.

    I own a emaxx and a erevo both. I have only broken a arms on my erbe. And as for the Emaxx I broke a set of rear bulk heads, ordered a set of alloy bulk heads and have not had the problem. I have a xo-1 motor in my erbe, and in its stock form held up to the power. If you're looking for durability, i'd say erbe. But if you want to hit some hard core jumps, maybe go with the emaxx. I love my emaxx and erbe to death... get them both =P

    Here is my e-revo doing a backflip. Plus i blow both rear wheels in the process. The wheels i was using were waterloged summit wheels. I have the mm2 so water is no issue. I even had it floating like a bobber in the river. lol. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...OM-uQ1PkI&t=77 Please no comments on the other rc in the vid. Only the e-revo.

    oh yes, they not a e-revo recommendation. Never unless you do under 25mph. I didn't have any other wheels that i wanted to get soaked with water.

    yup, got one, or two of those. My 3903 hobbywinged e-maxx is a beast. I do like my maxxes over the e-revo. It is a classic thing for me. It is ok that the e-revo is a newer more durable design. I have one to beat the daylights out of so i dont have to beat my maxxes, lol.


    My 3906 modded e-maxx below is a work in progress

    Interesting, I would say the only part I have not broken are the A arms. I have broken my revo practically in half by running it into a mail box at full speed. Ruined batteries and a million other parts doing that...
