Default Traxxas E-Revo vs. 4WD SCT

I was wondering which would handle better, the traxxas e-revo or one of the new short course trucks from ofna, jammin, or traxxas. Then also if anybody knows the ground clearence on either the ofna or jammin, that would be nice

Thanks

Well im going to go with logics on this one and say that because of the shorter a arms on the corr trucks, the e-revo would be faster and more stable.

The Ofna and Jammin SC's will handle alot better on the track, and they can be raced unlike the E Revo (no class to race in). Not to mention the E Revo's are more of a basher instead of a racer.

The Revo platform will be able to negotiate harsh terrain better than the Slash, just due to the intrinsic differences.

Yes, but the Revo was the only MT to handle decent, but since ROAR dropepd the MT class and not alot of tracks race them, you really cant be competative with a Revo.

IMO the Jammin handles a little better. The Jammin and Ofna are close, but both completely blow the doors off the Slash 4X4 in terms of handling and durability, especially handling.

revo was the only factory sponsored MT running, except for a handful of HPI race MT, so it is easy to win when you're the only one being sponsored or racing!

Depends. The E-Revo handles very well on general terrain but the 4wd short course truck will beat it on a prepared track. If you're just bashing, the short course trucks work best on loose dirt. On grass, pavement, or rocks, etc., they can be very touchy and the handling is far from optimum. Whereas the E-Revo can be pretty much tuned to anything and/or everything.

I am not sure the Jammin or Ofna are ROAR legal in the new 4wd rules they released. So by that logic none can be raced.

But in tracks around here they don't follow roar rules so we still ahve mt racing and every class.
