So I found a 2wd Slash (brushed) with the 2.4ghz radio.. The brushed doesn't bother me as its for a 7 year old, but I really want a 2.4ghz radio from the start.
Anyways, how do these things do on the snow? Usually packed snow out on the road in front of our house - never plowed by the city, but packed by neighbourhood traffic? I can imagine that the Stampede would do better, but to get that in a 2.4ghz model would require the VXL model which is even more expensive, and probably way to fast for a 7 year old newby to the hobby.
Thanks for any input.
