Default Need Suggestions for my 1st MT

Hi All,
I would like to have some input regarding which of these 2 MT to get as my 1st RCMT.

1) TXT-1
- SR esc
- Kyosho Atomic Force 17x2
- Full bearings set
- 13t pinion gears
- Airtronics ERG-VB servo for FWS (using SX112 for the rest)
- Kimbrough Servo Saver

2) E-Maxx
- Airtronics ERG-VB servo for FWS (using SX112 for the rest)
- Kimbrough Servo Saver
- Trinity Monster Maxx Wild E-Maxx Motor 19x2
- 15t pinions
- Maybe some CVDs

Criteria: Fun, 20+mph, ramps, tough, ez parts replacement, go over any terrain.

Why I include crawler txt? Cuz I'm not rich, so in future I wanna play a crawler, just need to modify parts instead of buying a new MT. And for ramps, fast action, i'll just get a cheaper stampede or buggy.

If i get e-maxx, nice speed, but if i wanna get a 2nd mt as a crawler, it would be exp. There's no cheap good crawlers around! lol.

Thus I need your kind feedback, how is TXT with 14t motors? Is it worth getting compared to E-Maxx?

For fast action fun, of cuz I would go for E-Maxx, but I like 4ws/crawling options. Haiz...

Well you have done your research and know your trucks.

What counts more for you?
E-Maxx is better for Bashing around and TXT is better for crawling...
You'll break the TXT if you do the things with it you will do with the Maxx, but if you try to crawl the Maxx like the TXT it will simply get hung up.

What is more important to you?
BTW If you run the Maxx to Hard you will break that to (I have )
[EDIT]Oh and as far as i am aware, both trucks can be set up with 4WS[/EDIT]

it depends on what you're after... bashing or crawling....

Emaxx is good enuff for bsahing around... quite stable at high speed on terrains...

But if you're serious abt crawling, you'll end up spending more time+money to beefup your crawler ...

For TXT you could add a rear steering servo, skids plates for your front and rear axels, your centre skid plate..... and mind you... those stock ball ends are easier loosen.. you'll need to get beefy ball ends (kyosho)....etc
