    New 4x4 Slash Owner

    Hey all,
    Just got a 4x4 slash and haven't driven it yet. Is there anything I should do to prep. I am not new to the hobby, I own a Stampede now and have owned a 4x2 slash and a rustler.
    What parts should I stock up on?
    Thx

    Check gear mesh and slipper setting (mine was locked out of the box). Make sure to check all nuts and bolts for tightness. Locktight metal to metal screw contact. Check the servo arm travel to make sure it doesn't contact the center drive shaft (mine did and gouged the shaft). Stock up on normal parts. In particular, arms and rear axle shafts. Run the snot out of it for 5 or 10 minutes, then check it again and see if anything worked loose.

    Without completely disassembling it, where are the metal to metal parts?
