i've always been an associated/losi guy. first associated, then losi, then back to associated. so i'd be a little partial to the losi. better heritige better name.
but looking at it it looks like nothing new. just a xxx-t tweaked a little bit. i'm sure its a great truck. but been there done than.
if you want something new i'd go for the slash. its something totally different! and i saw some videos of an all slash race (someone posted them here on r/c tech) and man they look fun! at first when i heard about the slash and saw pics i was like, ho hum. but once i saw some race videos... man, i might have to get me one if a track around gets a slash class!
my vote is for the slash
