    Would you give up your 4x2 Slash over the 4x4?

    While others are discussing how glad or disappointed with the Slash 4x4, I'm one of the glad ones It's about time...lovin' the new body too.

    Having already own the 'original' Slash, simple question:
    "Would you give up your 4x2 Slash over the 4x4?"

    I personally..can't decide yet I love my 2wd Slash too much...

    Without a doubt the 4x4 is better,...but I wouldn't give my 4x2 just yet. Because it's THE original SC trucks. Just like KFC, you get the available options of the original recipe and extra crispy. The extra crispy is good, juicier...but it's always good to taste the original. .

    This makes the most sense to me! I guess I just don't understand the mindset of selling what you have to get the next big thing.....usually you cannot get anywhere near what you have invested(believe me..I know). Keep it!!! It's not any less fun than it was day before yesterday is it? Use it to introduce a kid, family member, or a friend to the hobby...let'm drive it and get them hooked!! You stand to gain soooo much more.

    Regards, Jim.

    or just one if you haven't owned a slash. You can disconnect the front output shafts, and it'll be like the good 'ol days

    I see many familiar names on this thread, but I'm glad that most of you are original Slash owners, including myself. Seem that the answers are 50:50, some will trade-in, some will buy the 4x4 and keep the 4x2.

    What worries me though..are those new newcomers wanting to get an SC truck. I don't think they'll consider the original Slash. I won't..IF I haven't bought a Slash. I'm afraid this 4x4 Slash will 'kill' the original Slash market as more and more newcomers will, most likely, purchase the 4x4 version, especially with the more affordable XL-5. Soon the SC 2WD will be phased out....

    The 2wd Slash will never die. It's just the big seller, because of it's price.
    The 4wd will be to expensive.

    Pheww... Glad to hear that! Well I guess we will all become witnesses to the ongoing evolution of the SC class and see where the favor lies, 2wd or 4wd.

    Dude..2wd will never die. The Slash is 180bucks, tough and very simple. The Slash4x4 is expensive to some people and more complex. Plus alot of people will probably run both classes. 2wd can be more challenging with more power . I see no reason why a BL Slash wouldn't beable to hang with the Slash4x4. Good driving skills wins the race(80% of the time).

    I would not trade mine for one but I would/will buy one depending on price.

    I wanted mine to be 4x4 form the start but I never had a problem with 2wd. The only reason I got into the hobby when I did was the price of the slash to begin with. So I hope the price is reasonable at least. I mean that is a big reason the slash is so popular to begin with. I guess time will tell!

    I like racing the spec 2wd class because its cheap. I would be all over the 4wd but no one around here will pay for one I feel sure.

    I would never let my 2WD slash go but there will be one of these in my collection in a year or so after the hype dies down.

    I'm glad I held off and didn't buy the mini's.

    I'm keeping my two original traxxas. I never part with my fave toys. Well unless I really need the cash for something urgent in nature.

    4WD own's 2WD. If you have not had a 4WD buggie and 2WD buggie at the same time. You just don't have a clue.

    I'm definitely keeping my 2WD Slash and convert it into a backslash otherwise it will be abandoned. Because 2WD is like Miley Cyrus and 4WD is Kate Beckinsale!

    i dont own a Slash, but i do own a Rusty XL5 that i will let go like a hot potatoe. im thinkng about letting my touring car & 1/18 buggy go as well. im willing sell off 2 of my RC's if the price of the 4Slash is a wee bit pricey.
    4Slash is the only nickname i can think of right now...

    I hear ya, I have a Stampede, Slash and Slayer that need to go.

    I still wonder about the Slayer, It is mighty fun. I need to thin the herd though.

    my dream TRX collection would be:
    1.my custom Pede, b'cuz i luv the way it looks.
    2.a new waterproof Pede hooked up for Xtreme bashing.
    3.the new 4Slash b'cuz of its potential for racing/bashing.
    id also add the JConcepts Illuzion body b'cuz it looks more aggressive.
    hmm, sounds like a new thread.
