    First of all, you can buy the 2WD Slash with the Velineon already. But, anyway, definitely go 4x4. 100% better off road and overall, just better. Its a lil more money, but worth it.

    I have had both of the slash trucks. I now only have 4x4's! The 4x4 is a way better truck! It handles better, it corners better and it stops better. In my case the 4x4 took a lot more abuse with no breakage. The Platinum or Ultimate Slash 4x4 is the way to go! I have been there, done that

    Thx for the advice guys I'll be getting the slash 4x4. I was thinking about getting the ultimate but people tell me that the ultimate is more for racing.

    The only thigs that makes it more for racing, compared to the 4x4 vxl, are the sways,center diff, and three adustable4 rear toe settings out of the box. All those alum goodies are more of a bonus to bashers. Just my O.

    Ultimate all the way unless you plan on upgrading everything right away

    There is something magical about watching all 4 tires rip, shred into some dirt as rooster tails tag you...

    The Platinum/Ultimate is definitely the way to go, you will end up getting the upgrades later, but why not get them now for cheaper? Get the Platinum and get a Flysky F3GTB remote for $40. You will probably end up getting a lipo and new charger anyway so you dont need that stuff with the ultimate.
