    It's Decision Time......And I Need Help!!

    Ok guys I have finally made the decision to get myself a 4X4 Slash and am really torn between the RTR and Platinum.

    I have a 3PK Super and an extra receiver so electronics aren't the issue so my question is this......

    Is the Platinum really worth it or am I better off with the RTR and making upgrades as I go along? Is the addition of the batter and charger that much of a positive on the RTR to make me lean that way?

    Any opinions and feedback from present RTR and Platinum owners would really help my decision.

    I plan on buying it tomorrow and I am super excited!!

    Thanks In Advance

    i would have to agree with E-REVOdreamer if you have a 2.4 ghz radio and a receiver get the PE even if you bash just sell the tires and get something different (if you bash) and sell the center diff you some extra $ (if you bash) but if you race all of thos parts are grate!

    Well after alot of reading and searching posts on here I have bought myself a Slash 4X4 Platinum Edition. I called just about every hobby shop in South Central Ontario and finally found one close enough to home to make it worth my while driving there to grab it.

    Paid 400 CAD out the door so I grabbed a sweet SMC 8000 2S Lipo as well!!

    I can't wait to get this thing out next week on my vacation to put it through it's paces.

    Now my Revo Platinum has a little brother too
