I`d say E-Revo because Most hobby shops carry traxxas parts and most hobby shops won`t even know who makes the MT4

I agree the ERBE has some massive power with that giant 2200kv and MMM. But the majority of the ERBE is still plastic which IMO for a basher is not going to last too long especially if you're like me who always runs 6s lol.

On my Emaxx BL edition I have broken bulkheads front and rear, shock towers, bent shocks, and bent Traxxas' "steel" hinge pins. Not to mention broken center drive shaft like a pretzel, and broke both front knuckles.

Since then I upgraded RPM knuckles, RPM arms, Traxxas steel center CVD's, MIP CVD's on all 4 corners, Integy aluminum bulks, Lunsford titanium hinge pins, steel front skid, steel rear skid, T Bone wheelie bar, and Big Joes on Tech 5's. All in all the upgrades cost around $250-300+

Never seen the durability of the ERBE but I'd assume you would need similar upgrades. I think the upside to the ERBE is obviously parts availability at all LHS, tons of aftermarket upgrades, and better looking IMO. But long run more parts will break as compared to the MT4.

With the MT4 a lot of engineering went into this truck and there are a lot beefier aluminum components where needed and plastic where needed.

Here's Big Squid's review:
