1/10th E-Revo Brushless or Team Associated SC8e short course truck RTR?
Won't be used for track racing. Currently have a 2wd Slash and a Axial SCX10.
I like the look of the short course truck better but I just don't like how the batteries are all on one side, probably not as bashable either. I prefer the design of the E-Revo better. Not sure which to get.
Slash 2wd
RPM: side bumpers, front and rear A arms, front bumper w/ lights.
CC: Sidewinder SCT 3800kv
2s LiPos, AC6 charger/balancer

The E-Revo is a bit more expensive, but I definitely think you would be more happy with it. Its also 1/8th scale btw.

I would go sc8e, but i'm biased that way. Plus if you really want to you can put larger tires like the revo has. Also for that kind of money I want an alumium chasis.

just flip a coin, that will break the tie.

edit: from what I have seen the revo is a riot to use! Although you can't get pictures like this with a revo:

Awhh.... i used to do that with the laundry basket. But Sc8e is for me. The rc8b set world record for jumping (nitro version) Its short course with bumpers, so that would help with durablity but with erevo Arms are exposed, and pron to a crash-break-repair situation. Its also a expensive car, so expensive upgrades and expensive parts, but thats also with the sc8. You have the Big body to help you survive a roll over or a bad landing.

Then again, the Revo is waterproof. If you plan to do any winter or wet/mud bashing, I'd say revo first. You would have to work a bit to get the SC8e electronics to be waterproof.
