Am thinking about my next buggy (the XL needs a tad to much space so am fairly limited on where I can bash it proerly) . And it's a toss up between one of the 4wd Slashes (probably the Platinum) and the Yeti SCORE, now the Slash is modeled on a short course truck and the SCORE is modeled on a trophy truck . Does this translate into driving style or are they both competant bashers ? Axial spares support sucks is Traxxas as bad? Do either of these machines require hop-ups out the box (I remember the XL needed a metal Ackerman even before it was run)? Thoughts, suggestions, experiences, all welcome.
