    I didn't read all of the posts, but the Traxxas Stampede is a great durable entry-level truck with plenty of readily available parts. There is also plenty of upgrade options and aftermarket parts. You can start off with a standard XL-5 brushed model and upgrade it to brushless, or start off with the 2wd or 4wd brushless models for fairly cheap. I've been driving the same Stampede for over 10 years. It started off with a manual speed control (before electronic speed controls ((esc's)) were available) and I have since upgraded or replaced 90% of the truck. It's always held up very well for me though.

    yah the include a center diff on top of the slipper clutch so youll have both (i guess the center diff takes the place of the slipper? thats what i gathered from a review of the car from friend of rc's video on you tube of the platinum (which is same thing but ultimate is ultimate...lol)
