I read early that to enjoy this hobby, one needs to enjoy tinkering, constantly maintaining, and repairing the things that break. My journey into nitro has been expensive and not very enjoyable. I will be auctioning off my slayer, as I cannot stand the frustration any longer.
Latest thing to break is the EZ start system. yes, garbage by many folks account.
Packed up the Slayer today into a backpack, wife on horse, we head out to a nice wash clearing area. She continues to ride, while I ready the fun to begin.
Whirrr, Whirr, whirr.... Sound of a EZ start free spinning. I spend about 45 minutes sitting on a rock, contemplating why I didn't bring the Slash instead...
So, If anyone is seriously interested in the following slayer, PM me and we'll work out something:
Picco .26 maxx, barely barely ran, broken in right (I seriously broke it in and ran it on track for about 15 minutes)
sway bar kit
revo center diff
rear brake kit
JR Z9100T steering servo
RPM axle carriers with HD bearings
Steel hex bolts for wheels
Double blacks on rear
Rear moved to front.
Bag of repair parts.
At this point, the only other option is to convert it to an E-Slayer, as I swear, the only thing I drive is the Slash, because I'm just too much of a n00b (feel rather humiliated actually) for nitro.
Lemme ask, how much and how hard is an E-Slayer conversion?
