    Well the slash is known for it's durability,but that doesn't mean it wont break.
    But at the same time,you will have a hard time keeping pace with the other trucks you mentioned,with out some major mod's.
    They were made for the track,the slash was made for a bit of everything.
    I have both,and for out and out strength,the slash wins hand's down,And will take as much if not more power than the others.
    But it too has it limitations.

    you can race the slash. just takes a lot of practice and tuning of the suspension. definitely need new wheels and tires.

    I would get a Slash because they are known for being durable, and you can also make major upgrades if you know how to do it. Even if you don't know how, your local hobby shop can install it! I've seen parts for the Slash that are after market that are majorly upgraded. I have a Slash 5803, and am looking for upgrade parts.

    I don't think its over rated. Out of all the lcg slashes at my track mine is the fastest. It comes down to what you like and how deep your pockets are. Also what layout you want....no lcg is better then another. They all do the same job... Comes down to the driver. I do really well with my slash and just put a 17.5 in it and i still beat guys with anza, strc lcg chassis.

    That's why I said imo,and yes,it does come down to driving skills in the end.

    yes it will be fast and durable. ive seen a few guys at my track run the proline chassis and they crashed a lot and didnt break anything. the proline chassis looks the prettiest and looks more like a race chassis then most others.

    Here's pic's of both, the lcg makes a substantial difference, however many tracks dont permit them to run together.
    Our tracks have a stock slash class in which lcg's are not allowed.
    They are both quite durable.
