well, i'm going to be honest here. i love the slash. but if i got another sc, it would not be one. the sc10 or blitz or ultima sc. those are what i would choose, as they handle better and can all race really darn good. For racing, it will not beat a sc10, even in a better driver, and the only plus side of it the durability. i LOVE my slash, but i should of gone with a more racing oriented kit. even for bashing i'd reccomend one of them over it, as durability is nice, but if you are able to have the truck handle well enough that you just avoid the obstacles, you won't crash as much and the durability isn't the issue because of that. but yeah. get the low cg style sc's. the slash is great, but they are better. i race mainly. but i still would of prefered one of them for bashing. the slash is a good basher though.
