    We did a little bit yesterday, but nothing too serious. Some mud and a few shallow puddles.. we were all still in love with the new trucks too much to get them really dirty. I did have to spray the Slash off last night when I got home to clean it up, it's nice to have that option.

    One of the guys was taking some pictures and video, I'll see if I can get it online.

    I think the motor and speedo are perfect for this. Yea its slow compared to brushless, but you put three or four of these on any track and i guarantee you will have more fun than going 100 mph up and down the street.
    I was hitting the mudpuddles so hard that the truck would skip once or twice before it sank, and then i would just drive out.
    I am in no way insulting anyone, but maybe your speedo is not set right, or battery aint up to par. I am thinking i was close to 25 to 30 mph. My slash was pretty fast, and even a couple wheelies with a brand new 2 cell 5000 mah reedy lipo.

    Oh ya, racing on a track with others would be a good speed. I hate the street goons that cant do anything else...not what I was implying. My batts are up to par, running good 20C lipo. I get the occasional wheelie, but its not powerful by any means. I race a fast T4, pulling 30mph wheelies, so its apples to oranges.

    It's definitely fun... until you have to clean the vehicle up! I have done it a few times in my day.
