What are looking to do?Crawl,Bash or Race? For crawling I would say hands down the gecko.For Bashing or Racing I would go with the zilla4.

i heard that the gecko is stronger all the way around... bashing, crawling, and people use it for racing sometimes...

Well which clodzilla are you planning on getting?
The Gecko would not make that great of a racer as It is pretty much designed for crawling.But if you on a budget the gecko is great.



Wicked XXX-S Are you a member on clodtalk? I think I remember you from on there.

Hey Element, yeah I am a new member over on clodtalk.

I would stay away from the esp junk. I owned a z4 and I really didn't like it much, found it cheap. I have a extreme racing XC2 coming soon so I will let you guys know what I think of that.

Someday I would like this.

powdercoating is like paint and then is cured in a oven

Then you could keep the brushless for a insane speed clod project
