    That's a great way to start out in this hobby with the slash and two lipos. I started with a stampede and then a slash and I love them both for different reasons. If you have the chance to try out a...

    I'm a little bit uninformed on this topic so forgive me for sounding dumb, but... What is the advantage of the AE slipper? My stock seems fine so far, using a castle 3800 SCT. Thx

    Seems you like the pro-line parts. Do you think the pro line protrac suspension kit was worth it? Just wondering if it's a worthwhile upgrade for my slash. I recently started using it at a local...

    OK. Thanks for the input. Jezza, you were correct, I reversed the wires and now it runs much, much better. I had assumed that if it was going forward when I pulled on the throttle then it was set up...

    I got mine after visiting a local track and realized how much better they were on the track compared to my P2de. Still love the P2de for front yard grass and the kids. But for the race track, I...

    CC 3800 SCT seems slow?

    Did a bunch of research on here and other places and decided to upgrade to the CC Sidewinder 3 SCT 3800 in my slash 2wd, I had upgraded from the stock Velineon ESC and 3500 motor.

    So, I'm a bit...

    I'd say visit the track to check that out first. Depending on whether or not you get into that might dictate what to upgrade next. If the track is what you become interested in, tires might be your...

    Agreed with the above. Lipo and charger was my first and most significant upgrade to my slash and stampede VXL. I went with the Duratrax Onyx 235 charger and SPC 2s lipo. Great combo for me, but...

    I've had the same one for over a year and its still working well. Takes some abuse, the only annoying thing is the popping off, but can be remedied with zip tie.

    Biggest upgrade is the brushless, but its not cheap, but totally worth it. Other suggestions are replace bushings with bearings and maybe try a lipo battery. You can get an SPC Lipo for like $30 and...

    Agreed. I have the MJ mounts and protrac and trimmed a little bit off the mounts with some pliers and was good to go. You will be fine.

    I'm a out to purchase a second vxl for my kid and have looked around quite a bit on Craig's list and ebay also. The things that the vxl has but the xl-5 does not, of course motor and Esc are...

    Thanks Romian. I will check out the RS Pro again. I thought someone on another forum had recommended the RX-8 over the RS Pro, but I forget why.
  17. Tekin ESC and Motor or Castle ESC and motor for racing?

    I want to upgrade my Slash 2wd brushless vxl motor and esc for mostly racing at various tracks. I was looking at the Tekin RX-8 with a sensored redline 13.5 motor or a Castle Creations Mamba Max Pro...

    Which front and rear body mounts would you need to run for the MT Cconversion. And what is te benefit of the 17mm hubs, since the stampede tires are a direct fit, I was hoping to stick with them.

    How about converting the slash to a MT? I am looking to do the same when I am not at the track. I am just starting to research to see how much needs to be changed.

    It's funny you mentioned Tekin. It seems like most people on these forums prefer the castle creations esc/motor, but when I look on other forums, more geared towards racing they prefer the Tekin...

    I will Also give that a try. Going up a tooth or two I thought would have the opposite effect, reducing torque, but I will test it out. Thanks

    Ahh, slipper clutch. I didn't think of that one, I will give it a try.

    As for tires, they are PL Snipers on the rear and PL Slicers on the front, both soft, and they seem to give good grip.

    And...
  23. Racing Slash. How do I get more throttle response?

    I think throttle response is the right term, but let me explain. Had my first race at a local track today and it went great, but it seems like I have to put a lot of pressure on the throttle trigger...
