How do the Blitz and the Strike compare handling-wise?

The Slash takes a little finesse to drive. Too much corner speed, and you'll be up on two wheels. Too little, and you'll be on your lid. The truck boarders on becoming unstable. It's finding that limit that most drivers have a hard time with.
I've never seen a blitz in action, but people seem to be singing its praises. So, it must be worth looking in to.

heres the way i drive my slash is just go enough speed to go into the corner like half throttle or a little less espially in spec stock slash u have to keep on the power cause of the equal, i tried to let off the throttle a bit coming into the turn let in roll but it seems to lose the mometum , if u have the rear soft it will make the frount left off the ground a bit if u dont use a spacer on the front shocks,do u guys ever notice that if u use a preload clip in the front it seems not to turn worth of crap

also to if u are going in to 2+2 small doubles and try to clear them its best to stay in the throttle cause if u let off just a bit the rear seems to case in make the truck flip over for some reason

Default Thank you!

Just to put a cap on this thread, I picked up a HPI Blitz this weekend. HUGE box! My son is gonna LOVE seeing that thing under the tree.

Thank you all for your input.

Happy Holidays all!
