    Can't be compared, really. HCG monster truck vs. LCG buggy. They share a lot of parts, but share almost no common behavior.

    Get the pede and you won't regret it. Then get a bandit later so your pede isn't lonely!

    Yeah, i really think for a first vehicle that will be subject to any kind of bashing or offroading the pede is the better choice. If your doing mostly onroad running and maybe running at a track, the bandit may be the way to go...

    But if these are your 2 choices, the Rustler is probably the best of both worlds... with the addition of larger tires and wheels theres almost nothing you cant do with a rustler.

    Stampede for off road, Slash for the track, Rustler for both, any of them can be ran on the street. They are all tough as nails. They all have a ton of aftermarket support. I think the Stampede would be the best all-around truck.....

    A stampede with a protrac kit is, at least IMO, a better truck all round than a stock rustler. Now this is comparing stock to modified so its not REALLY fair, but its just to say that with some tweaking you can get a pede to perform as well as a rustler and still get the added ground clearance. Lower the body posts, put on a rustler body and its pretty hard to tell the difference from the drivers seat... so to speak

    Depends on what you want to do with it
    Stampede=Large amount of bashing less racing
    Bandit=Large amount of Street running/racing less bashibility
    Slash=Good mix of raceability and bashing and is also basicly indistructable
    Rustler=In the middle of all three

    I would get the bandit because its really fast and i think it can handle more abuse
