There's more to RC than racing.

I would think you'd have fewer issues with the Losi Ten-T than with the Revo(which is known to potentially have many..) I.e., from those two I'd get the Losi.

I have both and drive both quite frequently.
The revo is crap on the track compared to the 10-t. But the revo can out bash the 10-t because of its size. When I'm bashing I'm usually in a sand pit launching huge hits, driving over big rocks, through deep mud/water puddles etc. Not to mention driving in the snow all the time. The revo just handles all that better.
The 10-t is fun and fast as heck, but when jumping it lands like a pregnant whale.
I know the revo has issues, but on the 10-t the stock servos suck, the ross sucks and it might as well not have a wing I've broken it off so many times. You even look at the wing mount funny on the 10-t and it breaks. But damn it's fast.

1 answer i can give you now is that you dont want the weevo. It has its own issues that i wont delve into, But if you have any inclination to go racing, DO NOT get the revo. The MT class is pretty much Dead where ever you go and it would be a waste to spend 600$ on a truck you cant race with.
Understood. I had narrowed it down to these 2 models but with all the comments about "of the two listed" I wanted to make sure I am not overlooking a gem of a truck by limiting my selection. I will do my best to answer those questions below

Budget is 200-300 (used)
The truck will be bashing only - Mostly front yard and field running with the occasional trip to a construction site. I really don't plan on heavy bashing (jumping houses, 20ft end over end jumps or anything like that)
Racing, unless 1/8 buggy/truggy is dead in my area so I would say no racing at all.

If you really want to bash and have a tough truck, Id recommend a older model truggy. Get like a jammin crt or RC8t. They are very easy to work on and they are pretty though. You can put any engine in them without needing a special mount. You can also, install the 23mm hubs and get the big MT tires on there.

I would go with a Losi 8ight 2.0 or even a used 1.0 they are tough and big enough to get around bashing

Cool

+1 Losi Ten T but with everyone calling it "damn its fast" I'm laughing like damn how slow are their vehicles..The HPI MT2 does the same speed 45mph and that's nothing nowadays! Try 60mph with a TTR ST1!
Now that's Fast!
Get the Ten T Bro You'll be more satisfied and heck the radio
(Spektrum DX3S)with telemetry will carry you down the road!

We could tell you a thousand reasons supporting each truck but when its all said and done its what you like! I suggest looking at some youtube videos of each and search for Squirrel RC reviews. He does great unbiased reviews man!
