Default the big debate version 2 e bl stampede vs.....bl rc18t

ok gusy thanks for you help in the last thread that i posted i decided to keep on the bl e stampede because i thoguht that it would be cheaper to go from a stampede to a rc18t if i didn't like the stampede and i ahd enoguh money to get my pede running sooooo i got the bl (ss5800 +) and i got a fm radio ( xs3 ) to go with it and its has been pretty awesome to drive..............but a couple of days after i gto it running i had an accendent .............well its along story but a 1/1 scale truck ran over my stampede and i broke a chassis, chassis brace, servo saver ,my servo ,and stripped the spur gear grrrrrrr well i have been sitting here trying to save up the money to get the parts and i have been looking at the numbers it looks like to get the parts that i need in order to get my pede running again will cost about $30-$50 depending if i get another servo WOW! and i have otehr things that i need to get just to be able to have my pede last with the brushless in it (steel output yokes, metal street sport axles, and alum shock caps ) crap thats like another $30!!! and if i don't get a servo when i get the parts to get it running then it going to be another $25!! because we all know that a stock servo is going to strip very fast!ok soo its going to be like $90 just in parts to get my pede running again and for it to last as long as i don't race anymore 1/1 scale trucks again....that is total crap i hate the fact that i have to hop-up the pede just so i can run it the money that i am using to be able to run a bl in shoudl be going toward extra parts!! i knwo that parts are going to ware out with the pede but not being able to jump it with out having a shock cap come off and a servo stripping just plane sux!! i really like driving the pede and i havn't even really jumped it yet but its getting exspensive and if its $90 just to get it back up and running after a crash and have it be able to last and jump i can't imagine how much it is going to be if i keeping on crashing........now i know that a truck will do more damage then a crash but still ok sooooo finally what i am asking should i keep the pede and keep on paying a bunch after i crash or after something wares out........or shoudl i sell it and get a bl rc18t???? it looks like i won't loss any money if i sell the pede with the ss5800+ and 3 gp3300 batteries and a mrc 959 i will actually make money hehe i had it planned out get really good deals don't like it sell it for more then i payed the reasons that i would get a rc18t is because its small and easy to take to bashing spots , i can race it at the local track, and ...............the most important fact parts and eletronics are cheaper then 1/10th parts and eletronics oohhh yea since its cheaper my parents might support me more ( of course not finacialy but they might like it better ) and my dad is talking about if i get a rc18t then he would and we could race and bash together ahhhhh father/son time ......or yea duhhhhhh i have some sweet garden space that i have started to make a mini track in........so yea should i get a rc18t or stay with the pede and battle out the $$$ issue?please let me know! thanks ethan

If you want some more cash left over go with the RC18T as parts and electronics are cheaper then the Pede's.
