Losi for racing, Traxxas for bashing. Although Id still rather have a Losi RTR.

I dunno man, REVO!!!..nuff said. I admit I like losi products.. They are engineered toward racing. But if track time is not an issue and just plain fun is your desire I would go with Traxxas..
I race the losi..
Beat the hell out of my nitro rustler!

Honestly I would see what your local hobby dealer has for parts...If he stocks Losi. go with them..
My dealer stocks every part for traxxas.. so my decision was easy...

You will not be disappointed either way.

I wouldn't touch another Traxxas product with a 10 foot pole after I owned a Revo... Remember though, its all opinion. Buy what you know you will have fun with or want. Its a hobby right?
