I would say the rustler.Both cars have alot of the same part but there is more upgrade parts for the Rustler.

If you want control Slash is a good truck.The only problem is that it is really slow untill you go brushless.

Between me and my dad we have 5 Rustlers 3 pedes and 2 slashes. No Bandits. The E-revo would be nice but I like being able to interchange most of my parts with what i have.

If your even considering a revo... then save up for one. They are worth every penny. I love my E-Revo and it's still stock. The new 1/16th ones are sweet too and compared to the rustler VXL there not even that expensive and go 50 MPH out of the box with some lipo's.

Revo's are just awesome.
