I prefer the ofna hyper ste, full size electronics(you get to choose), wider stance, about the same wheelbase, and no lurching, bacflips etc. It lays down power evenly, and shoots forward(not in flips and gryo rolls). It is top quality for racing, and a superior rc to the traxxas mini. It's a hair lower, and a bit heavier, both good qualities in a mini, the small difference in height makes a huge difference in driveability with higher volt set ups. The little bit of weight gives it more bite and helps stabilize it's demeanor. There is no comparison between the two, side by side, the ofna tears up the traxxas in every area except backflips, and costs about the same amount once built.
Also like the vendettas, not monsters, and have to be upgraded, but so far the only thing the revo is better for is bacflips, and real rough terrain. However a tenth scale cheapie will handle the rough stuff better than the revo, because the minis are limited by size, so relatively speaking, the mini revo can't handle the rough very well either. So that leaves smoother surfaces. The vendetta dominates on these. Plus it's tough asnails.
Just experienc having used them all
