I have a rustler vxl and an e-revo, and they are very diff types of cars. the e-revo is on a whole diff level, absolutely amazing with a novak 6.5hv combo + max amps 7.4v 8000mah lipos. my rustler has the max amps 11.1v 8000mah lipo and is insanely fast on paved surfaces. i never take the rustler vxl off road, it doesnt get any traction.
if you plan to race your new car, you cannot beat the e-revo. i immediately converted my revo to brushless/lipo so I cannot comment on out of the box performance. if you want to go really fast than the vxl rustler is your answer, but only on paved roads.
I dunno if I helped, but feel free to ask me any questions regarding these cars.
