Default whats the best basher?

I have a slash and love the durability,but I don't think it is the best jumper.I also have a couple of 1/8 scale 4wd buggy/truggy's they jump and handle awesome....but I won't use them for bashing.I am looking for the ultimate 4wd durable electric rc....any suggestions?Ihave had emaxx,tmaxx,slash,rustler,rc18,vendetta,monster gt,thanks for the input.

Thanks but I am not toatally sold on monster trucks,mostly because of high cg.Looking for the best of both worlds,The durability and low maintenance of the slash combined with the agility of a track worthy buggy.

Find someone with a Sav Flux and watch them run it. SAV kept weight low (light) and with batts low on the chassis, its not like any other MT I've had - will cut hard sharp turns without the high CG rolling I've always had to fight to cure with other MTs.

I will have to check out the savage....... low cg sounds good,And the 1/16th scale stuff looks cool as well.Would be cool to see a 4wd version of the 1/10 scale slash that actually handled better.thanks for the input.

I have seen the slayer run at the track and I was not very impressed....could have been driver and/or setup but it was not much improvement if any over my brushless slash.
