Which should I get and why? I'm looking at the Traxxas Slash or Bandit, maybe the VXL versions.

What are your intentions? Are you going to race or just hack around. The Slash is an awesome vehicle. I race one myself. For someone getting back into the hobby, you have picked a good vehicle. Its rugged and cheap relatively speaking. Just drop in a battery and go. You can hop it up too if you desire. Id go with the Slash.

I was considering the Bandit VXL since A Main Hobbies has it for $204. Most likely just playing around or bashing not going to race.

even as a basher the slash will be able to go threw more then the bandit and if i remember correctly the vxl is the brushless system if so then go with the bandit if you want to buy another veical later then pull the system out of it and put it in another veical

Even though the bandit is a great price. You will be very limited as to where you can run it because of low ground clearance.
You will not be able to run in the grass at all and very rough gravel like a driveway is not that great either.
A truck or truggy is the way to go.
The Slash is great bang for your buck. If you have a little more to spend consider the Emaxx or E Revo.
