If it's for bashing and sometimes racing, I would go ahead and get a slash!

The slash isn't a terrible race truck like some say. Sure it will have it's handling difficulties due to a high COG. But it is not like it is so far out of it's element that it isn't even fair. It's mostly driver. A good driver can take a slash and outrun an average driver in an SC10/Blitz.

But because it seems to be for a kid that does hit some things right now, I'd suggest the slash because it is very durable. I've had my 2wd slash February, raced the crap out of it, and I have NEVER broken a single part on it.

Also it seems your dead set on 4wd? Why? Nothing wrong with 4wd, but I'd honestly start him out in a 2wd slash...

We presently have two 2WD cars (RC10T and T2) and one 4WD (HPI RS4 MT). The 4WD one handles much better, rear end doesn't swing out as much on turns. Probably hillclimbs better I'd guess, too, though I haven't tried that. I'm sold on 4WD.

I understand that a 4WD chassis will be slower than an equivalent 2WD, but that's OK - it's why God made brushless motors.
