I have been running my basher slash with a 3 cell lipo and a castle creations 5700kv brushless setup for about 9 months with very few breakages.
I get together every thursday and bash with a few other buddies that have slash set up almost the same. We do some simulated racing but mostly bash and it usually turns into a crash fest. I say all of this because during the summer and fall we never broke a thing but when the tempos started dropping below 45 we started seeing a lot more broken parts. We learned pretty quickly that at colder temps the slash plastic gets brittle. I even had a driveshaft shatter one night when it was about 20 degrees.
Now I don't know your situation but I do know me and others have put some serious power into a slash with no problems untill the temps drop.
As for gweeds idea a sc10 will not be stronger, it is based off of a T4 which is one of the best racing trucks made and I am sure the SC10 will prove to be a better race truck than a slash but a T4 will not take near the bashing that a slash takes.
Hope some of this helps.
