Hey guys, im new here and just purchased a new slash 4x4 after christmas. I'm 32 and still a kid and this is my first real rc truck. Got the rtr and 3 cell 4000 11.1 venom LiPo and took it to my local air strip and let her eat. Rolled it several times and didnt hurt anything but then I lost sight of it and hit a road sign with the right front as I was slowing down. So here is my part list, RF bell crank snapped, bent turnbuckle, bent shock rod, broke a-arm ( suspension arm) completely off, and front shock tower broke on right side. I straightened the turnbuckle but had to order all of the other parts and now the wait is on.
The truck is awesome and took some pretty good bashing but a metal road sign at half throttle slowing down is pretty obvious for some broken parts, luckily thats all thats broke. I ordered the parts on monday and went ahead and ordered the big bore shocks while I was at it. All the parts are on backorder and the only thing that has came in is the big bore shocks. I cant wait to get this thing back together and get some practice in. They had the truck on the shelf and told me it was a new model but I didnt know it was that new. That was my first trip to a hobby shop and now I cant stay out. Got a blade msr heli to keep me occupied until the parts finally get here.
Any how, this seems like a pretty cool board and I think I can learn a lot here, so thanks for all the great info and be safe!
P.S. How long are new parts usually on backorder?
