    pro's & con's

    Hey guy's i'm thinking about getting the Hurricane xp.I have the Volcano and ive got it going pretty fast.

    What are the pro's and con's of the cane xp?A friend of mine has a Traxxas,not sure what type.
    He smokes my butt when we run them.Will the cane keep up with most.I guess what i'm asking.
    Does the cane rock butt far as speed?

    I have read the review,I would just like some feedback from the one's on here that have them.

    RE: pro's & con's

    i know, do you think the hurricaine will do 55+? i know they have a bigger engine but its also heavier. The revo and jato are pretty fast especially the jato. By all rights the 1/8 should beat a 1/10 but it also depends on what traxxas he is talking about. Their monster tucks like the tmaxx it would easily destroy but i dont know about the jato. just letting him know. i have seen other 1/8 buggys by ofna etc and they are fast but from poiint a to point b in a straight line i think my jato would beat it.

    The revo is much faster than the t-maxx, and very durable. The revo is an excellent truck especially with the 3.3

    I just figured I'd humor him a bit by swinging from a few branches myself and slinging some testosterone back at him.
