Default 2wd or 4wd Slash Pros and Cons

Been reading about 4wd Slash from those who own them. Curious to know what everybody thinks about them comparing 2wd to 4wd? Highlights/downfalls?, pros or cons to either? I currently own 2wd w/RPM upgrades, MMpro, Lipo powered.

I never driven a 2wd car (just build a RB5 last night), but looks
to be a different style of accelaration/braking, wight distribuiton, just looks
cooler i think, also lighter.

In general I would say the 4x4's are quicker and corner faster! I have a maxxed out sc10 and my box stock hyper 10sc is faster out of the box for me.
Also with a 4x4 you can pull off some amazing drifts that would send a 2x4 into a 180. My 2 cents, i don't have any desire to go back to 2 wheel drive.

yeah, I can see that-a lot of my attempted powerslides turn into 180's(even w/bowties)--and it isn't cuz of too much throttle too soon- ha

The 4X4 will be much easier to control.

I have both. The Slash 2wd was one of my first r/c cars, and I still love the thing. I just recently got the Slash 4wd and it is a great truck.

Pros/Cons:

The 4wd obviously will handle better, but it costs more money. The Slash 4wd PE is a race truck, while the Slash 2wd wasn't really designed as a "true" race truck. The Slash 2wd is better suited as a "spec" racer, which is how I run it.

It all depends on what you want to do. If your racing then I would stick w/ 2wd and it will teach you to be a better driver. If your racing 2wd vs 4wd the 4wd should win every time.
