New JConcepts Truth Body, protrac kit, bar codes, shock caps...
The styling of the slash inspired me.
In actuality its this.
I call it the Slutsler. See the build on the N. Rustler forum. Hope nobody minds me posting it here. I was paying tribute to the slash.
My slash 4x2
new member with a teaser
This is my project baja bug
and when im done it should look like this
Finally got to open my slash, had to wait til Christmas lol. Makes it sound like I'm 13, this thing is soo much fun. Been through two battery cycles and many barrel rolls!
Two months ago, I knew nothing about RC cars or trucks, but after looking for a hobby that would allow me to hang out with my sons and two other middle-aged guys looking for a fun outlet, we all went out and bought the Slash 4x4. Shot this pic before my first run and I never imagined I would have so much fun. There is a lot to learn -- which I enjoy -- but I have found the entire RC community to be open and willing to share a wealth of information. EDIT: Apologies, I did not realize there was a separate thread for 4x4.

Custom paint job from a pro-line body. Painted to rims to match also.
mounted the go-pro on the battery hold down. does pretty good. I like the point of view perspective

Just installed Proline Badlands on the rear and Proline Caliber SC M3 on the front. Also burned out the titan motor and have already installed an HPI Firebolt 15t. Haven't run it yet, waiting for my daughter to come back over so we can run together. Hopefully the tires are a good combo for our backyard bashing weekend! Only used stock tires up to now.

Use less brakes
Dashing through the snow....
finished, switching back arms to jatos too, really its a awesome truck
Was a Rustler, now a LCG carbon fiber Slash.
Here are a few photo's of bodies I painted and installed graphics on over the weekend. This was the first time I ever painted a body and I was very nervous. I consider myself to be a horrible painter with a spray can. My older son helped me out and put on the first coat on all 3 bodies.
