    Saw a Slayer running in Oshkosh WI

    Hey everyone, I went to the WSORR race this weekend and Traxxas had 2 Slayers there. Holy cow this thing hauled some serious butt!!! The Traxxas rep was running one in the parking lot. It was surprisingly stable, at first when I was looking at it at the booth, I was thinking it would roll pretty easy with the short a arms, but he was giving her the berries pretty hard and she stayed on her feet. I just thought I would share my excitement with you all. I figure if they are running one for the public to watch, shipment wont be far off! (Fingers crossed)

    As for stability, it's not narrow.

    As for the release, read my sig.

    I wasnt trying to get in a digger on its width, its only after looking at my Revos, so often, when I looked at the Slayer, with basically a Revo Chassis, it makes it seem narrow. I cant wait for this baby to come out, I already have 350 down on one and my Bandit is for sale on the shelf, hopefully that will sell and pick up the rest of the cost on the Slayer.

    I mean it's not narrow compared to a Rustler (they don't flip over either).

    Man...I wish I was that close to one.

    My LHS has ordered Slayers from Traxxas so hopefully we'll get them faster than we got the Slash in.

    How did you extend it? I have got ours on to its side on two wheels and I rode it for a few feet than came back down on all four tires sadly I have no idea how I did it and have tried and failed to do it again.

    I also saw the Slayer run in Oshkosh this weekend. It did look pretty sweet. I talked to one of the Traxxas guys and he told me that to convert the Revo 3.3 to a Slayer you would need the 2.5 chasis and all suspension components. And for the drive shafts on all four corners. They are the Revo 3.3 center front shafts.

    No surprise there. I would have been tempted to grab the transmitter from the guy.

    Probably so. You need the arms, turnbuckles, wheels/tires, body, driveshafts (Revo 3.3 front center shaft), pushrods, bumpers and nerf bars.
