    Thinking of getting a Slash 4x4 platinum, is it worth $500 if you already have an SRT

    I was thinking in gettn the slash 4x4 platinum and put 2.8" badland tires on it with a rpm body lift.
    My question is will the slash be a great enough of an experience, in comparison to my SRT, for it to be worth the $500?? Or should I just keep the SRT running as is? I'm just bashing but would like to visit a race track someday.

    I think the LCG chassis plus all the other little extras they include make it well worth the added investment:

    -machined aluminum suspension components
    -front and rear swaybars (including a set of extra stiff 'bars)
    -clear body ready for your own signature paint style.
    -sealed, silicone-filled differential to replace the installed Torque-Control slipper clutch when track conditions favor a center diff.
    -massive GTR shocks and LCG chassis
    Make it idiot-proof and along comes a better idiot

    I was also thinking about a lcg slash. I just found a dirt track that I could go race on Sundays. I would use it mainly on that track and bash my other vehicles.

    The SRT is simply the best. Don't sell it for a slash. Take that money and upgrade the SRT. Get some nice titanium turnbuckles, new bearings and electronics and see about getting the GTR shocks to fit.

    The slash p.e. is a great basher. With some time, money and patience it can be made into a racer if you go that route in the future. If you need something that will take a beating then pick one up and keep the beatings away from the srt . I think you'd be overall happy with it in the long run.

    I'm not going to sell the SRT.

    He wants the Slash as a bashed so he doesn't bash the SRT. Now if he wanted to get into racin the SRT would be the best option.
