Default decisions decisions what to do T4 or 18T

here is my delima i have a RC18T sitting in my living room floor still in the box but i am debating if i should return it and get the RC10t4. many people say the RC18t is a blast but i am on the fence with this one. i even thought of getting the traxxas Slash electric but not really into that type of RC.

and i want to mention that i also have an RC10T3 so wondering if getting the T4 is a waist

so some input from the peeps the know would be helpful thanks

Personally I'd return it and get a T4. The minis are fun, especially when you throw a mamba in it and do some speed runs...but thats when the fun fades. I dont know if you want to race or bash...but my vote is the T4.

My son and I started with 18th scale. They were moderately fun but had trouble on larger tracks when racing. We went to 10th scale and it's great. Check your local track(s) and see if they have bigger turnouts for the Buggy or Truck classes. The T4 is a great car and perfect for starting racing. Plus, you can drive it off-road, in grass, etc. It's really hard to do much with the 18th scales other than on a prepared track, parking lot or otherwise smoother surfaces.

T4 is for racing
18T is for chasing cats around the house, fun but you will grow tired of it, FAST

My vote is for the T4. It can be raced at most tracks yearound. If your not interested in racing, the T4 is great for most types of bashing around open lots, backyards......

i was really thinking of getting the new T4 the only thing is since i all ready have a T3 it would be like getting the same car. BUT and thats a big BUT the RC10 is so awesome!

The RC18T really doesn't Know its that small, it acts like a giant. i just want to have as much fun with the RC18T as i do with my RC10T3 and I haven't seen an RC18T in action with my own eyes and youtube doesn't count.

Do you race at all? Im guessing you don't. If thats the case then theres not much of a point getting a T4. I still wouldnt get a RC18 either though...theres lots of other cool stuff you could get.

Get the T4 , the minis will nickle and dime you to death!!There is a HUGE difference between the t3 and T4.
wider track,longer wheelbase, better handling.
