    "1" Skill Level Rating?

    According to the magazine the slash 4x4 is a 1. I dissagree... this truck is way faster and takes way more work that my 2wd slash (also a 1).
    It is brushless and 4wd, vs the opposites...
    Do you agree with the 1 rating?

    Would it make you feel better if it said skill level "eleventeen" on the box? Who cares?

    Well, sorry if I've wasted your time. I believe this was a good topic to bring up... whether or not the skill rating on this truck is misleading to people new to RC.

    I agree with the 1 rating because with the STOCK battery, and training mode, its easily usable for a beginner who hasn't driven an RC before, or young kids.

    However, just because it CAN be a 1, doesn't mean it also CANT be a 3 or a 4 at the same time by upgrading, or using all its features/power settings at their max.

    Thats why I would agree that it is rated fairly, just because it can be toned down by the push of a button to a skill 1 easily.

    IMO, the whole skill level thing is retarded. It's like turbo stages in the 1:1 car world. It's all subjective to brands. Who decides what skill level is what or what stage is what? Yanno?

    Don't everybody get their panties in a twist. It's just my opinion. Welcome to a public forum on the internet.

    If my 5 yr old daughter can drive it around on 2S not in training mode, only running into herself once in 10 minutes, then it's a 1.
