Mount Vision or Attack Trail

Hi,

My current bike is a 08 Marin Mount Vision, i rather enjoy it but i only bought it because the Attack Trail wasn't available in my country but by the end of the year that issue should be adressed or i can just go to UK in order to buy it, my question is:
I'm not really a skilled driver so in the trails, sometimes, i can see some friends flying with bikes like mine while i'm stuck so and going a bit by common sense a little more travel should help me out disguising my faults so i thought in replace my mount vision by the attack trail but that causes me another problem, i also ride a lot in the street and i'm not sure if the attack trail behaves well in this situation?!?
Can you give me some advice about this? Should i keep the mount vision or change it by the attack trail in order to have a bit more pleasure in the trails without getting stuck?

Regards
Hugo

    Attack Trail won't really make up for any inadequacies in your riding and it will just make climbing and any road riding more of a slog.

    You've got a wicked and very capable bike there mate - I don't mean this horribly but just go and learn to ride it!

    Incidentally, I have a longer travel bike and my mate has a Mount Vision - he's kicks my censored left right and centre on the trails - my extra travel means nothing as he's just a better rider.

    Unless you're riding black and double black diamond routes, there's nothing the Attack Trail will really excel at that your Mount Vision won't do well on already...
