Traxxas Slash 4X4 LCG "Platinum" Brushless 1/10 4WD Short Course Truck

I had an HCG Slash 4x4 when they first came out and sold it a while back. Needless to say I missed the reliability, so I bought this little guy just to have around for fun and the occasional sportsman race. The LCG chassis and GTR shocks are a HUGE improvement over the initial release of the slash 4x4. It handles exponentially better and the shocks are pretty close to perfect stock, just set your ride height, install the included center differential, and you can actually compete with this new Slash. Ok, maybe you want to invest in some real tires, but everyone knows how bad the stock tires are for race traction. Good for bashing though. For the beginner to intermediate, this is a great truck to bash during the week and race on weekends. The pro would want to make a few more changes and tune it so it can still be competitive with the purpose built race trucks. Also, all the hardware is metric instead of annoyingly having mixed metric/SAE like some other silly trucks.
