So I really would like to get one of these three and they are all really different but I just need help deciding between the 3. I will not be racing just bashing around my land and running it on my track. I don't plan on really doing anything to it for a little while so what would be the best RTR one out of the three? Oh and the more speed the better. Thanks in advance!

Slash, hands down. Why? Because it's the longest of the 3, so it will resist the urge to wheelie every 5 seconds. Wheelies are cool the first day you get your r/c, but you'll grow tired of it very quickly.

What will you be running it in? Grass? Mud? Dirt? Snow? Keep in mind about clearance. If you will be on mostly smooth-ish surfaces, I would go Slash like Matts said. It's better on a track than the others from what I know. I have the P4DE because I run in grass and snow.

looks like you already have a slash 4x4, i would mix it up, get the stampede if you need ground clearance and dont mind following it around to flip it over, if you have a smoother surface to run definitely go with the rustler.

As a former owner of the Original Stampede I say go with the Stampede 4x4 as it is a fun truck and damn sturdy. While trying to see if I could climb up my threshold of my side door I had to floor it to get the back wheels up it and accidentally launch it down my basement steps. My kids thought I fell down the stairs LOL. Truck survived every step

Depends, do you want another 4x4 or do you want a 2wd? If you already have a Slash 4x4, I think a Stampede 4x4 would compliment that nicely (for hard bashing). Although for speed and light bashing, I think you'd be happy with a brushless 2wd Rustler or Slash. A 2wd Pede is a great rig too, but it needs a bit of work to make it more stable. Wheelies are always fun IMO, and the 2wd Pede is the king of wheelies.
