I race mod with the Traxxas LCG chassis and do very well. It's more tire choice and suspension tuning. I use a hi-flow body with all the air holes cut out to eliminate the parachute effect as well. The purpose of the LCG chassis is to just get the truck lower to the ground to prevent traction rolling and roll overs. I drive on a medium bite clay track. The truck is awesome. I can turn laps just as fast as I can with my TLR 22SCT 2.0. The Slash is more fun to drive. Much more predictable and the rear end is more planted. The TLR can get a little squirrelly because it's lighter in weight. A super light truck outside isn't always better or faster.
I also bash with my Slash. It's just so much fun to drive. I drive it like I stole it. But I don't go plowing into stationary objects though. For the money, you can't beat the Traxxas LCG. It's 90% driver, 10% car. If you're a good driver, it doesn't matter what chassis you have. I'm not knocking the Anza, or STRC, or any others. I'm just making a point that a more expensive aluminum chassis isn't going to make you go faster.
Practice makes better. Learn to drive. That will make you faster.
