Questions?? Slash Choosing Second car:2wd or 1/10 Desert Truck or Stampede 2wd

Hi everyone
I am planning on getting a 2nd hobby grade and the 3 cars I chose were the
Losi Desert Truck
Traxxas Slash 2wd
Traxxas Stampede 2wd
I can't really make up my mind because they all seem like awesome trucks.

When I drove my old Duratrax I went off road and on road. In fact I probably went on road the most which is where I broke the most parts hitting pot holes and stuff which is out of my control

However I did go off road and the conditions were medium cut to high cut grass about 6 inches at the most. (I have no control over it since it is the park)
I also drive over hard dirt, mulch, and lots of gravel and rocks (I again have no control over this since it is at my apartment building)

I also have to admit I'm a sucker for detail which why stupid chose my Evader Dt over the much cheaper EXT 2 because the Dt had mirrors and a light bar. This is probably why the Desert Truck and Slash are on the list

As far as looks go I cant decide all three of them look awesome

Now I want to stop anyone who mentions this right now. I can and will not go beyond $250 on a rc when I really should be saving up for a first car so NO SLASH VXL 4x4 NO! STAMPEDE VXL 4x4.

Thanks for any responses

P.S. the title was a mistake Slash should not be the first word.

I would go with the stampede myself. Will do better in the grass and is more for play. I would stay away from the losi for a basher because they just don't seem to hold up.

The slash is super popular, so a) it's very well supported by the aftermarket and b) you can probably find a used runner VXL in your price range. Personally, I'd look for a used version of whatever you want. While it can defintiely be a crapshoot, you'll get more for your money.

I paid about $125 for an RPM'd RTR brushed Slash locally; plenty of upgrade VXLs in the $2-300 range.

Slash 2wd. I had one, looks great, handles great and may be to most durable. There are plenty of parts and upgrades.

I never buy used and do not recommend it either.
