    Yep - what Traxxas does best: throwing a body, wheels and tires on something and it's "new".

    A few other parts too, of course (mud guards on a 1/10 vehicle are way overdue) but generally, yes it's a 4x4 slash.

    The slash is on the trx chassis, right? They've been revamping that for years.
    Not a bad thing. First the hawk, now the stampede 4x4.

    The 4x4 slash is on its own platform - it uses the same shocks and arms that have been around since the early '90s, and has revo diffs, but the main chassis and such was new for that vehicle.

    The 2wd slash is based on the rustler/stampede platform, which debuted in '94 but the transmission was first used in one of the blue eagle ls trucks which was around '91-'92ish.
