Looking into crawler/ scaler

Ok Got the revo's / summit. , stampede , rustler and a slash. But looking into a new toy after jeep is fixed. Was looking at the honcho-vs-dingo-vs-wraith.

Like the wraith but heard not the greatest for scaler. But heard dingo scaler not to good for stability. But I like the idea that I can make a mini fencepostxj. And read some were the honcho is bigger then dingo ?
Or what would the best base platform be. ? Want to have lots of mods. Front 3 link with pan bar dual spring coilover setup stuff like that.
Also. I have seen the trailfinder 2. I like the scale tcase for that
Thanks

B is spot on. I have so much invested in mine and I bet I could get maybe $300 for it all.

I was thinking of that. . That's how I got my xj. Ya it's a shit mix of parts. But I couldn't have bought a xj and added what he did for 1600$. And now I'm finding the week points. And the uglies and upgrading from there
