Probably Tracker RTX.

In giant slalom you don't need the extra capabilities that the other trucks could give you.
Maybe SplitFire is the best choice if you want a higher priced truck. Radikal would not be the choice as it's at its best when the courses are really tight and tricky.

But I'll let the techno freaks complement my answer.

Jani, I don't question your experience, but my view is very different. For g/s, and we've been running them super fast, its a Rad all the way. Its very precise, but also has a very stable geometry. I think all the trucks you mentioned have a similar kingpin position.
Indy's and trackers are a different school of truck design and imho, could be prone to speed wobbles at higher speeds. also for g/s, being able to space out the wheels wider is a plus.
the other question is the turner ttc. I have one (geezerized) and love it, but I would prefer not to have such a dead truck for g/s, but one that would track more with the front truck.
