Ok, so I got meself a used Slash. Came with new motor, ESC, and some other stuff. Was a little beat up overall though. I have since been through 2 spur gears, 2 front shock shafts, and some other minor stuff. But god damn is this thing fun. And fast. I'd like to find out exactly how fast it goes, but it's around 60mph when on a fresh motor and battery. Tons of power in the LiPo batteries. On gravel it shoots rocks up to 30ft. I'm gonna stay away from gravel now though, too many tiny rocks getting inside and messing with the gears and such. It's how I went through one of the spurs.


Anyone else running something similar? Running one myself is fun, but with another truck I think it would be funner.


Right now I have motor heat issues, but I'm gonna get a motor fan. Seems like I'm gonna be pouring money into this thing, and a lot of time as well fixing it up after I bash the hell out of it. Though the tinkering is part of the fun.

Got a couple videos, am gonna post them. Probably tomorrow.

I had a 2wd slash. the thing was awesome. i upgraded a few parts including the rpm sealed spur gear cover. i was running a 76t spur gear with a 28t pinion. It reached speeds up around 70 mph. The thing flew. I had a castle sidewinder esc and a castle 4 pole 3800 kv motor. A ton of torque. Was fast. loved jumps and gettin air.

Nice.. do you still have it? That's the white one I see in the videos you posted? Mine's the 4wd version.

Gonna have a quick little video uploaded to youtube shortly. Just doing some donuts and spraying the girlfriend with rocks lol.

Will def be getting more videos, esp of the top speed runs. I need to find more places to take it. I'm gonna stay out of gravel, though it is so much fun.

As for BMX track, yea we have one here in Abby, but I want more of a flat track with smaller longer jumps. The track here has some crazy big jumps. The shock oil I'm using isn't as thick, not meant for jumps, more race track style. And I almost bought a drift car... but decided agianst it as it cant be used all the time and pretty much anywhere. Needs summer weather or indoor track.
