Which Traxxas Trucks?
 
Im looking to get 2 Traxxas Trucks for Xmas. However, I cannot decide which models to get. One will be for me and one will be for my son. These will be for bashing, backyard, parks, woods, etc.

My Requirements are Waterproof, 4WD, and at least one has to have the training mode ability for my son. The contenders are Stampede 4x4 Brushless, Emaxx, Emaxx Brushless, Summit

Any Ideas? - Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am so confused.

The Summit looks really cool becuase it can go more places, but lacks speed
Emaxx looks like a great all arounder but I heard its not Durable
The Brushless Emaxx might be too fast, and thus even less probability of Durability
The Stampede appears to be the most durable, However, it looks top heavy and prone to rolling over, plus its just as expensive as the emaxx and not sure its worth it.

Again, I need 2 one for me and one for my 6yr old.

How old is your son? If he is younger I would suggest the Summit.

Get a Summit and a brushless E-Revo, best of both worlds.

He is 6 yrs old.

Summit and E-Revo might be an option. Maybe a brushed E-Revo vs a Brushless. The Brushed is stil plenty quick right.

How about 2 Minoi E-Revo Brushless? The brushless can be put in Training mode, correct?

How would this truck fare in the grass?

I guess I should also then consider Brushless Mini Summit as well.
