I bought this Slash 4X4 LCG Platinum Edition so I can bash around in off road terrain. I've driven it on grass, dirt, road, mulch, and gravel and this thing can handle all those quite easily. I've owned it for 5 months.
Handling is very controllable out of the box thanks to the LCG, sway bars and GTR shocks, so much that I can drive it at speed in reverse without great difficulty. Suspension is very soft, and I turned the collars on the shocks to stiffen it up slightly. GTR shocks are of great quality.
Don't worry about the low center of gravity chassis getting hung up on things, unless you're trying to crawl over tree roots and rocks.
Speed running on 2s Lipo is about 40kph using stock 13t pinion. Also included is a 18t Pinion for better top speed. Top speed with 18t on 2s is 50-..
