Default torn between the two

just wondering what you guys would pick if you had the chance.. im guessing i know what you would pick, but im still going to ask...im going to be in the market for a new 5th scale car to run around with...i have found the rampage mt5 for $670's and i have also got the mcd racerunner comp evo3 for $1000 just a bit more really and thats with a 26cc engine. they both really catch my eye.. i love the fact of a monther truck just running through and over anything... it will be used mostly for bashing. The rr i know i can convert to a baja or a MT and really anytime. That is another key thing im looking at.. i have read through the MT5 thread and they seem to be great trucks.... i know the rr is a great buggy too. so im torn.. do i go with the mt5 and use the extra cash for upgrades or go all out for the rr comp3...i know im going to be happy with both...

Here is my next idea... i get the comp buggy and then wait a month and buy my wife the MT5 so we can run around together..lol

Yeah, get them both. You'll kick yourself either way if you don't.

Wow...
I wish I could afford to start buying TWO 1/5th scale cars!
I'd go for the Rampage. It's quality for bashing
But if you can afford it ( and your wife will actually use it) then go for that!

I have both I have 2 EVO III MCD's and a Rampage, the parts fior the Rampage are less than half the money for the equivelant parts for the MCD.

JMO buy the Rampage and upgrade the stuff that breaks.
