First 4 Wheel Traxxas Recommendation?

OK, I'm willing to spend from $300 to $450 on a new R.C. car. I have a 2 wheel drive Rustler that I really enjoy. But it has a brushed motor.

I now want a 4 wheel drive brushless car/truck. Can any of you recommend a Traxxas that would be good for someone who has never owned a 4 wheel drive R.C. car before? I'm not looking to race, just drive and have fun with.

Thanks much.

Here's all the brushless 4wd options from Traxxas:

Stampede 4x4
Slash 4x4
Mini Slash 4x4 VXL
Mini E-Revo VXL
Mini Summit VXL
Mini Rally VXL

I would suggest the stampede 4x4 or slash 4x4. The slash looks more realistic, but the stampede will be more versatile off road.

Yup, looks like your price range brings you to the Stampede 4X4 or Slash 4X4, unless you want a mini in which case you can get wich ever one you want and get some nice lipo's for it. If your looking to get used then your options are very open. Even consider a summit if your not looking to go brushless.

Either the slash or the stampede 4x4's will get the job done. Either one can also be converted to other vehicles with only a few extra parts. The slash 4x4 can become a monster truck and the stampede 4x4 can become a truggy as well as a slew of other vehicles (look up jang on YouTube.
