Default What's a slider?

Been away for a bit. Apologies in advance for what's probably a very simple question. What's the difference between a slider and a roller?

Typically a slider has no electronics and no wheels, often no body as well.

A roller will typically have no electronics as well, but will include a body and wheels.

A reputable seller will include pics of everything included so there is no confusion.

The main reason that I do not like the term slider is that it does not necessarily include a transmission in said terms. I do like the term PreRunner, does not necessarily have its own set of tires or rims per-say but is a slider in the sense you have to put your race tires and rims on your prerunner to test out a track before you put them on your race car.

A preroller must have all the rolling gear out to the hubs and be a close cousin to what your currently racing or bashing.

A slider is a vehicle that the seller would rather throw the wheels in the trash rather than pay extra shipping for the added weight.

A slider is a palm sized chicken sandwich you get from KFC. The Louisiana BBQ one is my favorite.
