Well, I bought my first slash about 2 weeks ago and love it. I am very addicted and the only thing that sucks is it is expensive. So I decided that I would like to race with my 8 year old son at a local track and am keeping my slash stock for that reason. I just bought his slash and plan to keep it stock as well. Now I am on the hunt for one more that I plan to make brushless just to beat heck out of. Well, back to e-bay.
Buy a new 2.4 2wd and transplant a brushless system into it.
look for a deal on a used one! going to hop it up anyways!
