Default 5t or 5b?? agh..

Spent the last few months contemplating the Baja buggy. Walked into the hobbyshop this morning to buy the SS Buggy but on the counter was a brand new 5T truck and man it looked so much more impressive. I spent over a hour tossing up between what I wanted.. and I couldn't make my mind up. The Buggy is nearly $200 cheaper, but the truck looks so much more ..well imposing.
Just wondering what members here would buy if they had the choice, all I want it for is bashing as well. Durability is important.

go for a Nutech MMT...if I could go back and do it all over again, that is the vehicle I would get.

I have a 5b with more money in it than I would like to admit.

Buggy is more durable from what I've seen, the truck looks good but seems a bit more fragile and the bodies seem to break/crack easily +they are expensive to replace.

I"m getting the 5T as I like the look better, has better dirt cover protection all around the chassis, bigger engine and I'd rather have the body take the brunt of crash and flip over damage then the rest of my $1,000 truck while the buggy is pretty vulnerable all over when it flips over.

I'd get the 5t. It flys better and when or if you get tired of the truck look take the body off and you have a buggy.

I would say it depends what you want to do. Do you want to take it out of the box and go, or take the time to build it. It was an easy decision for me I wanted to build it.

i have 5b, the weight of 5b is lighter then 5t . 5t's body is way more expensive. it will break if you bash hard. [sm=shades_smile.gif]

I have both, and the T looks way cooler tearing up the gravel piles. I like my B too, because I beat it unrelentlessley.

Both r awesome all depends on ur cash. I have both only cause they were great deals . But I prefer the truck because of ground clearence.

Do what I did. Buy the 5bss and build it then get the 5T I'm the kind of guy who can't have 1 without the other. If I had to choose only one, I would just save a little more and get the 5T
