Default Keep 1 or the other, Tmaxx or Jato

I can only keep one, which one should I keep? I'm leaning towards the Jato because I don't have many lage jumps around here, or a lot of dirt. However the Tmaxx is built pretty solid and can smash the crap out of anything. The one I decide to sell will be sold with all original radio gear minus and engine.

Thoughts?

Exactly thats why you sell both to have a higher spending range. If you could sell both ready to run for $250 then you will have about 500ish give or take. I would say if you want speed but want to jump at times to i would go electric hpi vorza rtr. Not many nitros are made to just drive other than traxxas and traxxas nitros arent to great but i know losi and hpi make really nice monster trucks rtr thats are fast and can take a beating a tmaxx cant.

I was considering going electric at one point. My main concern is going off road, and the engine getting either wet or clogged with dirt.

if you had to absolutely keep one of the two i would choose the t-maxx.
otherwise do what they said sounds like a good idea and you get something new and shiney thats always best.
