It doesn't mater, I have owned both Losi and Associated and liked them both. Get whatever brand you are partial to and your local shop carries more parts for.
I currently have a TEAM ASSOCIATED t4

Just spend your money wisely and get a lipo battery and a good brushless system right off the bat. You will be happier and spend less money in the long run.

All you need is a T4 with a good bL system and some Lipo batteries.

Get a Team Associated Factory Team T4, a good Li-Po and a charger. The truck even comes with ProLine M3 Holeshots and M3 Edges so most likely you won't even need to buy tires!

Don't hesitate to ask questions either. We are all glad to help out!

Like you said, the slash is getting popular, start with a slash...its a cheap RTR and you can build your battery arsenal* with that...get a BL system for it then upgrade the vehicle if you are still into electric.

FT T4 or xxxt-cr both are good....

I run a FT t4


You could also wait a little for the kyosho truck to come out it should be a good truck also.

Go brushless for sure its so easy and a lot less maintenance.

what is the move current 1/10 scale nitro truck you have driven and how did you like it? (you stated you have driven Nitro everything). I would say if you had a good experience with that nitro stadium truck, go with the same companies electric offering.

I would say however that since the Slash class is really growing at your track, see about wheeling one, and then wheeling a 1/10 scale stadium truck and see what you think.
