I've seen multiple posts of people buying rolling chassis. What's up with this? People not liking the 'pede but keeping the electronics?
I'm a big fan of upgraded electronics, but with the stuff in the 'pede, I think the stock stuff is certainly more than adequate, plus it's waterproof and warranteed.
This is my first Traxxas, and I've been very pleased with it. Add a nice couple of LiPo's, and it's a blast. It is exactly what I was looking for in a basher. The Slash 4x4 footprint for greater turning stability might have been nice, but I can't complain.
