    The LCG chassis turn faster without roll over and at high speed it more stable

    picture a 2x4 block of wood with Traxxas tires on it and imagine you pushing it through a corner with the force being on the side of the 2x4 only. Now put up a center riser of 4 more inches and push on that going through a corner. Yes leverage will make it tip quicker! Same thing happens as you move the weight of the vehicle higher off the ground.

    Watch speed ice skaters go, they don't stand up! LCG is very important to stability as is weight placement. This chassis is shown in the specs at center of only .82inches! Wow my stock Slash 2Wd is 3.5inches to bottom center that is a HUGE difference in 'leverage' of weight force.

    Lower is better

    Yep. It would also be good for bashing.
    This is a signature.

    Or bashing, depends on how you bash and what sort of terrain you go over. If you bash on a grippy surface with grippy tyres and suffer from traction rolling then the LCG chassis will be lots more fun.

    I hadn't actually considered getting a Slash 4x4 until the Rally car was announced, the chassis just makes it WAY more desirable for me.

    I have a slash 4x4 ultimate roll and wish I'd waited for the rally. I plan to race my rally next season.
