    What if you could only have 3 vehicles?

    Just a fun, rhetorical thread, intended to make us think and maybe give us ideas.

    So our wives/parents/girlfriends think we have too many cars. They think we are unreasonable to have more than one.

    What if, for whatever reason, you could only have three vehicles? If you're into planes, helis, or boats, those don't count in this thread. This is three cars or trucks.

    Just say the make, model, andrationale. Since wecan only have three, the assumption is that theywill be souped-up so there's no need to get into details. We'll assume you'll have plenty of batteries, spare parts, different wheels/tires, etc.

    The rationale would be nice too.

    At this point, I think my three would be:

    1) Traxxas Summit - good basher, can handle mostly anything
    2) Tamiya Subaru Brat - good street car or light offroader, doesn't need smooth streets
    3) Tamiya Dark Impact MS - In caseIever decide to race, but would also be a good smooth offroad basher

    RE: What if you could only have 3 vehicles?



    1 - Savage Flux (6s of course, I might be getting this truck soon anyway)



    2 - HPI 5b SS



    3 - probably something like an SC8, they are cool and nitro. I figure if I could I would have one of each and I don't really like all the 1/8 buggies that much.

    1.SC10 - Already Have It

    2.AE B44 - Soon to Have It

    3.HPI E-Firestorm - Already Have it

    I'd have to keep my ordinary road car, I know some people are really into the hobby butIwouldn't be willing to sacrifice that just for another RC.

    Face the facts, Novak is like Integy, it may look nice but when you actually want it to work it fails miserably.

    Slash VXL with a second set of wheels and tires.  Awesome basher, Awesome off road with bigger (pede) tires. Can be raced in a spec class.

    Savage Flux - Just a big old go anywhere monster truck. 60+ MPH helps alot too.

    Mini revo - Small enough to run around the house when the weather is too cold to be outside (chicago)
