Which Traxxas model to buy?

I have been in the hobby a long time but have kept to cheap trucks because it was all I could afford (1994 stampede and then a 2wd Slash). I just got a job and can afford a new one though and I am just looking for everyone's opinion/input while trying to decide which one to buy. Having said that, please don't try to sell me on a different brand or model. I like and respect other brands but I want something that I can beat up A LOT (you can't toss an SC-10 off a roof and drive it away) and I am not interested in trucks like the Summit either. 1. 1/10 Slash 4x4 brushless: I really like the handling characteristics of my slash. I can change the setup easily to make it great on pavement and then switch back to great off road. It behaves more like a real car than anything else too but at what point do you decide to just get a street RC and have a separate off road one? It gets stuck very easily, even in high grass but when it works off road it is a ton of fun. One battery and a lower cost are good too. 2. E-Revo brushless: Very cool but pricey. 3. Stampede 4x4 VXL: My brother has one and it reminds me of my old 'pede but on steroids. Again, plus is price and one battery. 4. E-Maxx brushless: I feel about the same here as with the Revo. The thing that makes me hesitant on both of these is that their power gets them nowhere. Both these and the 'pede will easily do wheelies at full throttle so why pay the extra several hundred dollars? I am sort of thinking that they don't behave well enough dynamically to be worth it over something cheaper. Then again, I'm a vehicle dynamics guy. I think that's why I like the slash so much because it gives you a whole new driving experience. Anyway, enough of my rambling. Any opinions?
