    Questions, questions, questions

    Alright, I finally have enough cash for a Slash . Does anyone know where they are in stock? Also, my peak charger is outdated as are my batteries. Any reasonable suggestions?(not interested in VXL for now). Are there any good charger/battery combos for >$100?

    ...and opt up for 7cells instead of 6...livens it up a bit...

    ...and for chargers, if you can, get one that charges lipo as well...trust me...you'll go there eventually. I run the ICE & Triton 2 chargers which rock but are $120...you can get a Triton Jr. which does all battery types for $70...

    Does the JR need an external power supply though? If so, what's a decent/cheap one?

    Does the slash need a 7 cell stick or hump pack?

    Never mind, I just read the description at R/C planet. How does a Triton charge a car pack? It looks like they only charge planes.

    stick would work better. i can say that at the local track my slash is by far the star attraction right now. and when i brought out the e-revo every other vehicle left the track. they was afraid of getting run over.

    I have the new Duratrax Onyx 230 charger, its sweet for the money. You can spend less on one of the other models, but you use the option to charge lipo. Looks liek Planet has those too.

    Either will work. However, if you remove the foam pad in the battery tray you can fit longer packs. That would be beneficial.

    Just ordered a Slash from Tower so I can have the time to earn money to get a new charger.(and maybe have the first one from Tower on here.)

    Bought 2. Put the vxl in 1, didn't want to keep the stock one 'cause they're kinda slow in stock form so I sold it.
    A friend just got one today and brought it by. It was cool running them both around!
