Default Arrma va Traxxas?

What would good recommendation between two be for 4x4 truck. Heard good and bad things about Arrma but of course Traxxas is decent products.

I don't think Arrma can come close to Traxxas as a company and quality customer service.
Traxxas has been around a lot longer and there are more upgrades available.
Traxxas products seem to be built better out of the box.

Yeah but I'm hearing that Arrma quality is equal to if not better than Traxxas. I'm actually in process of looking at ERevo, Kraton. Nero or fazion just can't make up mind.

The debate has/will go on for a long time. For some, it's as simple as a coin toss. Each brand has it's good, and not so good platforms. For me, I know what I want from my next 4wd RC, and Traxxas doesn't have it. The good news...Traxxas vs. Armma = win/win either way in my book.

Yeah I guess. I really don't know what I want. As long as it goes off road and 4x4. Hard to make up my mind. Any opinions on each or have experience on them? Only traxxas I will be interested in would be erevo. Or any arrma vehicle but unsure what to get.

Arrma va Traxxas, this is a question. But I think here Traxxas has more fans.

Traxxas may have more fans but Aarma has fans as well , They look similar and one could probably install a fan from Traxxas on an Arrma but even after that ....would they be a fan of Arrma?
On the flip side one could also possibly install a fan from Arrma on a Traxxas ,but again it begs the question ...would that person now be a fan of Traxxas?
H'mmmm.............

Default I'd roll with ARRMA

Kraton, Nero, Big Rock, Fazion, or Stunt Truck for pure bashing; Talion, Senton, Typhon if interested in racing & bashing. Check out AussieRC on YouTube, his videos on ARRMA lineup is real deal.

I too would go with ARRMA, because I have a Typhon, but I understand why a lot of people go with Traxxas because of the availability of the parts.
