    Difference between Platinum and Ultimate

    Is the only difference between the two is that the ultimate has telemetry?

    The ultimate comes with a radio, battery, wall charger, and painted body. The 6807L has the lipo and telimetry. The 6807 comes with a series 4 nihm battery, but no telemetry.

    The platinum doesn't come with a radio, no battery, and a clear body.

    The 6804 and 6807 comes with the standard chassis and big bores. The 6804R and 6807L come with the LCG chassis and GTR shocks.

    The only other minor difference is that the 6804 doesn't come with the blue aluminum hub in the slipper. The new 6804r, 6807, and 6807L all have it .

    No the Platinum doesn't come wth a lipo. If you look at http://www.towerhobbies.com/products.../trad6804.html it tells you it doesn't come with a battery. If you look here http://www.towerhobbies.com/products...as/trad11.html it shows the standard model now comes with a 2s lipo and the.price has gone WAY up on the Slash 4x4!

    Wow. I want the ultimate, but the Platinum looks more in the price range for what I am selling my Slash 2wd VXL for. Is the ultimate better than the Platinum, or do they pretty much perform the same?

    The 6804/6807 are the same less differences in pre-installed electronics and body same with the 6804R/6807L. The LCG chassis versions (6804R/6807L)does handle a bit better but for bashing the standard chassis versions (6804/6807) have more ground clearance.

    Prices on the standard (now 6808L) and ultimate (6807L) have jumped a bit but they do come with a lipo and charger. Personally I would but a 6804R but I already have electonics for it.
