new slash!

I might be a bit late for this, but if you can hold out till beginning of 2013, traxxas is releasing a robby gordon Dakar Rally version of the slash with the truck/suv body. It looks pretty cool.

I was thinking about getting a Slash for my first hobby RC. I haven't heard anything bad about them (if anything) and they have most of the features I'm looking for.

They are pretty good. I'd for sure get a diff. That'll give you more steering. Or just get the Slash 4x4 Ultimate #6807 which gives you a lot of upgrades.
