Default Better basher, Slash 4x4 or Axial Exo?

I've got a Slash VXL 4x4 and am happy with it.. Need to add a car for my son, trying to decide between another Slash and an exo-buggy.
I've never even seen an exo in person, but they look cool in pictures.

Without spending a ton of money to change anything, will an exo buggy hang with the slash if they have the same battery/ESC/motor?

Heck, maybe the exo is better than the slash, I don't know... I do know the slash rocks for general bashing abuse.

The Slash and the various cars built on it's platform are pretty much the strongest thing in RC right now. The Exo has some reliability issues Re; Diffs and plastics. It's also terrible to try and get the battery in/out of.

IMO a slash is an awesome bash vehicle and if you guys decide to race you can do that too!

Slash, and as an added bonus you only have to keep 1 set of parts on hand.

Way cool looks - Axial EXO hands down.
Way cool reliability/durability - Slash all day long.

I have an EXO, but love to tinker. Not the most user friendly design though.

Oh I'm all in for the 1 set of spare parts - LOL - That's why we both have TC4's for VTA racing. I'm really happy with the Slash I have - all of the pluses lean toward the Slash. I just wondered if I'm missing something with the ExoTerra Buggy.

Tough to beat easy 50+mph in a truck that you can't hurt with a hammer.
