    Slash VXL. Blast to drive, and I can run it indoors. And unlike my Jato, it hasn't bought itself over again in replaced parts.

    On road, you may want a stiffer suspension anyhow. I have spacers installed on my slash, and the track I run on is rubber. Firm suspension works for me. Your mileage may very.

    I would tear it apart and have a look. If the exterior components have no visible damage, then it will probably be an internal one.

    If your tires hook up on whatever your running, the VXL will pull the front end of your slash off the ground not problem.

    Most things in this hobby get expensive quick. Hard to beat a Velineon system. Especially when you can trade up your stock motor and esc to knock the price down on one.

    If it was cracked prior to you purchasing it, a "little bit" of bashing on 3s may have been the straw that broke the camels back. No way to know at this point.
