Far more tuning and setup possibilities than either truck as well. Β* Β*
Dude I'll have to dissagree with you on that one. The ERBE has a TON of tuning and setup capabilities because of the fact that there's Soooo many parts that companies make for it. And even stock you can tune a lot of things on it! My setup for it right now on mine is like offroad 55/45 onroad. And it Riiiippppppssssss
I agree with you, pyro.Β* The ERBE is very flexible.Β* But if I want to make big changes to my setup, I'm swapping out rockers, springs, tires, pinion and/or spur, etc.Β* We haven't gotten to preloads and other standard suspension tweaks.
With the MT4,Β* I can accomplish most of the setup changes we just described in the ERBE with a change in the center diff oil weight, add spring spacers, a different set of tires, and you're done.Β* I don't need a box full of aftermarket parts to get the same results.
The thing that makes the MT4 such a versatile all around truck (and therefore a great choice for a basher) is that it can be a bashing machine comparable to any MT out there.Β* A few minor tweaks and you have a brushless truggy like what Yakfish is recommending.Β* More importantly, (especially if IΒ*am now opening up the doors to considering Truggies, which can easily cost 2x what a MT4, Flux, or Revo sells for) I can get all this with one RTR kit. Β*I don't have to buy a truck and then spend hundreds more on aftermarket parts to make it something else.Β* Thunder Tiger has done a great job of combining the best aspects of the MT class with the best aspects of the Truggy class.Β*
I know I sound like a ridiculous fanboy at this point.Β* I'm really not, I will be the first to say the MT4 isn't perfect. Β*But no truck is. Β*
But right now the MT4 is one of the best, if not the best, values in the RC industry.Β* It is an extremely powerful, extremely durable, very flexible platform.Β* It doesn't need a lot of aftermarket help to make it a great vehicle.Β*
Where else in the RC marketplace can you get all that in one box?
