Default T4, Rustler, Stampede or other?

Ok I have a T4, and a Stampede. I just sold 2 others and gave one away to my nephew. I am trying to downsize to just one and go brushless possibly lipo. My options I am considering is Keeping the T4 or the Pede and go Brushless with it or buy a VXL Rustler and mount my mashers on it to make it more a basher. If I go with the T4 or pede I will prob buy a Mamba system for them. I do not race however there is a racetrack and if I had the time I would consider it but currently I work on Saturday. However I am considering going back into the Marines so that could change for the better or worse. So the question is if you had only one, or if you want to suggest another what would you pick? My pede is brushless ready so no worries there.

If there is any chance of racing, or going to the track, i would keep the T4. There is not a class for the Stampede at most tracks, unless you just went on a practice night some other day of the week if the track allows it.

You can probably always put some larger tires & rims on the T4 and gear down as well for playing around.....

for JUST bashing, the pede is the only one listed that's capable. I started out with a pede and my son with a rusty, 9/10 parts broken were on the rusty. even though they use 90% of the same parts, it's the way they were desined. we now switched to xxx-t (basically the same as t4) and they don't bash very well but race exellent. biggest deal with asking an opinion, u will get EVERYONE'S and they r all differant. hope I helped

Since your needs are for bashing and not so much racing I think your two choices are the Pede or the Rusty and between the two it is really personal preference. I personally prefer the Rusty but a close friend of mine has both and prefers the Pede. He runs more off road, I run more on road so maybe that is the difference.
