“Electric offroad car/truck/buggy
I am Zander. I am looking for an offroad, 4WD, electric rc car that should be fast, quite low so that it wont fall over easily on turns, waterproof electronics, good suspension so that it could do a little bit of rock crawling, etc. Pretty much an all rounder, rock racer, rock crawling offroad 4wd car/truck or whatever. Its should be atleast 4s lipo .. but i want a car that can do anything. I am looking at the Traxxas Summit and the Axial Yeti XL, looking to get the Yeti XL but not sure yet. It can be any size and any cost .. just please give me your suggestions even if its not listed above. Please reply and help me asap !

Cubby- Yo hey “Zann Da Man”, the Zan-lander, the Zan-meister, Sir Zan-a-lot, and Mr Zannish House Mafia, thanks for the email, I have proclaimed yours as “Letter of the Month”, hit us up with your snail mail and t-shirt size so we can give you the hook up.
So… you want a vehicle that can do everything well and has zero downsides. Nice wish ya have there buddy. The biggest problem that I see from your letter is that you want it low so it won’t traction roll, yet want it high so you can crawl with it. Those two things just do not exist in one vehicle. Yes, the Yeti series from Axial comes closest and does a solid job, but they still traction roll at speed on high bite surfaces. You can change them to not traction roll, then they lose some of their rock crawling prowess.
So (#2)… you say cost is no object, so I am gonna say skip the dumb stuff and do it right, get two different vehicles. Vehicle #1 will be your insane crazy power 6S rig that can blast down trails at 60 mph and can bust out gargantuan jumps. Set it up low and stiff so it doesn’t traction roll, and it should make for a burly high speed machine. For vehicle #1 I am gonna recommend the ARRMA Kraton to you.
Vehicle #2 is your insane throw boulders out of the way, climb over all the crazy stuff yet can do 50 mph on the trail rock racer. This would of course be the Axial Yeti XL.
With those two machines in the back of your pick-up truck you will be dialed for everything you are looking for.
