If your going to race, get the xxx cr. Your slash is Perfect for all your bashing needs.

Nothing, but it's not as tough as the Slash. Its based on a race car, the slash is based on a toy.

Another question. Are you looking for a RTR, or a kit where you need to buy all the electronics?

Nothing really, but if you're planning on racing occasionally you might not want all the goofy lights and wierd roll cage. I also have to say that I have not been happy with the quality of Losi's stuff ever since Horizon Hobby bought them. I am biased though, being an AE fan boy.

Usually when people say occasionally race, means they will bash mostly, but take it to the trakc every once in a while. Not very competative, just to have fun. The DT is based on the xxx-t, so you can get parts and bodies from the xxx-t and put they on the DT. When you race, you can just take off the roll cage and lights and get a jconcepts xxx-t body.

For what your looking to do with it they will all work, they are all good.

Your best bet is first buy what your local hobby shop sells because you will need support and parts every now and then.

Second is buy what you like the best, because you are the one who has to enjoy your new RC.

Well, not exactly. The DT has different front and rear shock towers, same as the Speed-T....you would have to get the XXX-T ones to get a stock XXX-T body to fit on their correctly.

Rear DT shock tower does not have any body mounting posts at all. The front shocktower is more raked back, and has Grey body adapters bolted to it.
