I am no stranger to brushless. Everything I have is MM or Velineon powered. My lone hold out was my first Slash that I kept brushed in hopes of a spec class. I had already installed a VXL system in my second Slash but have yet to run it. I have been slowly upgrading it while things are slow. Today while giving my brushed Slash a cleaning, I felt the uncontrollable urge to install a VXL in it. 10 minutes later, I was tearing around the yard with a huge grin on my face. Using a matched 4600 SMC pack with stock gearing, the truck was a drift machine! The harder compound of the stock tires kept the rear end loose but controllable. I can't wait to get it on the track! It will be hard for me to ever re-install the Titan... I guess if we ever got enough stockers to race with I would, but for now I will keep the VXL in it. Man this thing is fun!!
