For what yor looking to do your best bet may actually be the 1/16 e-revo or the 1/16 slash.

They are both durable, will work for your applications, are fast, can be faster with minimal mods, and are both 4 wheel drive, and easily under $300.
The mini slash handles like crap though. They race them at our local track and they can barely make a corner without barrel rolling a dozen times. The mini revo might be better.

minis was a fad... Their popularity really waned and died down... almost... For some odd reason, the latest fad is to go big (1/8 scale). Even then, I think 1/10th scale is the most popular class for a reason. It's reasonably big, but not too big, and it's reasonably small, but not too small. Just perfect to work on for your average-sized hands...

I say Slash all the way. I don't understand this infatuation with the Rustler. I think they are a big waste of time and money... Even though the Slash is loosely based on the Rustler, it looks more stylish and fun.

If you want something "like" a Rustler, I'd go for an RTR RC10T4 instead. Rustlers and Bandits are just one step above the Tyco/Niko stuff, but not up to racing standards as the T4/XXX-T...

Thats only part true. If you want to make them good you can get them to where they can beat a t4 any day. But if you dont then well...

That's fairly true. I would stay away from a t4 though unless you are a diehard racer. I have strictly for racing and I have had to install so many upgrades to prevent it from breaking and being able to finish a single oval race. The rustler and bandit are a lot more durable and finish a lot more races than they dnf.
