    No contest, e-revo. Best mini ever, period. the vendetta can be made brushless and go as fast as the mini e-revo with some upgrades, but the mini e-revo doesn't need any upgrades and is tough as nails to boot.... I was considering getting a vendetta too, till i got my MER....

    RE: OFFICIAL MINI E-REVO THREAD!!!

    I made my decision lol. I just searched the E-revo on youtube and its bascially a real size E-revo just smaller. That is TOTAL WIN.

    Also could you recomend me some Li-Po batterys for it. I want to go all out.

    This site seems pretty good with very nice prices.

    Hey, what about the e-revo compared to the slash ?
    I HAD a slash, I HAVE an e-revo.. Nuff said

    The slash is cool, it was the first truck EVER to make me want a 2WD. I have always only got 4X4 rc's because they have better acceleration and handling, especially off road. Well, the acceleration of the slash ON road was OK. No wheelies but i didn't expect any. The handling on road was atrocious!! Seriously bad. The body roll that looks cool offroad, just makes it flip onroad. Off road, especially in grass, the acceleration sucked, but the handling was OK in the dirt....
    Smooth dirt is really the only place the slash is good for.
    Now with the MER, acceleration is awesome on and off road. I took it out to a baseball diamond the other day and WOW was that fun. On road it flips fairly often if i dont slow down enough, but on the loose dirt it never even thought of flipping (till I slid sideways into, flipped over, and cartwheeled away from 3rd base, but no damage)..

    I think as far as my favorite Land RC vehicle, its a tie between the Mini E-revo and my Losi LST XXL. yeah, this mini is THAT AWSOME!

    The slash would have been super cool if i had had a bunch of people with slashes to race against, but by itself, or against any other type of truck, its not that much fun...

    go 2.4ghz. both spektrum and futaba will work fine with the antenna hidden under the body. in fact, I had to work to get mine to be higher than the motor... withe futaba you do have to avoid any 90 degree bends or you lose a lot of rang, but its no too difficult....

    in the pic below, both the mlst2 and the mer use spektrum rx's, the mini quake you can see still uses 75mhz....

    It helps even out the power to the front and back wheels evenly. It's only for if you don't want to wheely and racing.

    How is the Novak Mongoose system in this truck? I am thinking about switching the stock brushless setup for one. Is it worth it or not?

    well, it doesn't really even out the power, it cant get any more even than the 50/50 a locked center gives you, it actually makes it uneven, and that's why it helps racing. When you peg the throttle without a center diff, the front wheels lift and it wheelies, and if you dont let off the throttle, it flips over. With a center diff, its easier to accelerate fast, because when the front wheels lift,its like diffing out around a corner, the front wheels get light and start to spin, which means the motor doesnt get to generate the trouqe needed to wheelie, and you go forward without flipping over. If you are VERY careful with your throttle finger, you can accelerate faster without a center diff, but with a center diff, you can accelerate almost as fast, and you dont have to think about it, plus there is no chance you will screw up and wheelie over, so in the end, you will make it through a race faster and with less stress...

    RE: OFFICIAL MINI E-REVO THREAD!!!

    I was wondering if the MER would be a good choice for a begineer in electric rc trucks on or off road i plan to do a little bit of everything with it i am what most consider a weekend worrier. I only have $800 to spend and i can get one for under $300 which leaves money for extra batteries and a peak charger. I have been running gas and nitro powered rc turcks my whole life my latest truck was a 1/8th scale mammoth st made by xtm racing the reason i want an elcetric now is because i hear they are easy to waterproof and a whole lot more fun in the long run. If you would recommend this truck please email me at xdestructionx18@aol.com or xxdestructionxx18@yahoo.com also any recommended mods or add on parts for this truck would be helpful

    RE: OFFICIAL MINI E-REVO THREAD!!!

    Got my e-revo up and running last night for 2 minutes in the rain. With one nimh pack it was pretty darn fast.

    From what I could tell after 2 minutes on a wet road, it is impressive. I'm going to replace the radio with a Futaba Fasst 2.4. I was getting some off and on jittering in the steering that was really annoying.

    Also ordered a couple lipos from HobbyKing and an accucel charger.

    Traxxas has always been known as the perfect car for the newbie.

    The car is great for a newbie since it comes fast out of the box is very durable and easy to work on.. Also parts are really easy to find..

    what problem do you have with the stock servo? its waterproof and digital, and i doubt the hs82 is any stronger, it could be faster, but i dunno...
