    !!!omg!!!! SLASH 4X4 6S LiPO!!!! insane

    today, just for fun, I built a "Y" adapter to hook 2 3s packs, I have always wanted to see my slash on 6s
    I run a MMM esc and a kershaw 9L motor, I have 17/50 gearing( Way to tall for 6s)
    after taping the batteries together and then taping them in to truck ( DO NOT DO THIS) I tried to run the truck. Either the extra weight or the extra power fried my slipper on the 1st pass, after taking it apart and sanding the clutches and plate , I was ready for another run. This time I tighten the slipper more than normal, can I say _____________, guess not but I know of no other way to describe the power, the power was insane!! ever seen the savage flux videos were they do standing back flips? at speed of about 35-45mph I thought I would see what 3/4 throttle looked like , can I say FULL back flip? about 3 foot off the ground , landed on the wheels , and keep going!!! I never hit full throttle,I don't know if it is even possible, any way after that run and a nice wreck after wards I though the Y adapter away and will only be running 3's from here on out, FUN DAY


    *edit* just fished the "Y" adapter out of the trash, I will try this again

    You wait and see what I do with my slash. I am buying another MMM motor for my revo so I can stick the 2650kv back in the slash. I'm gonna run 4-6s on this with videos.

    I'm regularly running 6s. Vids once the rebuild is complete.

    Also, if you plan on running 6s or even 4s, I would suggest upgrading to the Revo-spec slipper.

    I put the revo slipper on there already. If I get some extra $ I'm gonna try to use the revo CVDs on the Slash

    I want to know what tires you were using that gave you enough traction for that. When I tried my 4.5 on 4s, I just kept getting tire spin.

    I have the revo slipper, just had it set loose to save drive shafts, LOL, I'll try to get a video cant promise anything, my camera(Cannon s5is) takes good movies but I can't seem to find a program that will combine the audio and the video together, might just have to show it with out sound

    as far as tire's I am running Talons, I don't know if it was traction that made the flip, or centripetal force, like I said the truck came 3 feet off the ground(probably an exaggeration more like 1.5-2 but I could see a lot of air under the roof)

    the thing was extremely uncontrollable, the wheel at the start was maybe 1/8 throttle, the almost 2x back flip was full throttle

    Windows and MS Paint. Alt + Print Screen to take a screenshot of the currently focused application (or Ctrl + Print Screen for the entire screen). This stores the screenshot in the system clipboard. Open any image editing program, such as MS Paint, and paste (Ctrl + V). Crop and resize as desired.

    This reminds me of the 1/18th scale stuff when people started dropping overpowered BL+LiPo setups in them. The conversations were very, very similar.

    Some people just couldn't get it... and some people just couldn't get enough of it. This is basically the same deal. Just like with the 1/18 stuff, it's readily available gear. That means everybody can try it (watch someone else try it) and see if it's the thing for them or not!

    I would like a vid of a slash 4x4 on a track (as in track and field) without a body and the driver slowly gets up to speed. That would make us see how fast this thing can really go.

    If you read my 1st post I said I almost trashed the Y adapter because it is WAY too much power for the truck, I just had the stuff to do it and I wanted to see it! then people started wanting a video so I made one.
