    Question Chose one, ONLY one.

    My dad said that he would buy me any ONE upgrade for my slash 4x4 for my birthday. I already have a LiPo, and im happy with the velineon system. So besides that, If you could get any ONE upgrade for your slash 4x4, what would it be???

    RPM a-arms.
    Just accelerate, and only good will come.

    Ask for an "ultimate". That's an upgrade!

    i just bash. street and in the woods. i like the motor/esc and the battery i have. and i already have a custom body. i have not had any problems with breaking things. so im looking for something to make it a little more custom rather than stronger/faster.

    He said he is happy with the vxl system so a bigger motor will only create more problems/breaks. If you bash around and have a decent budget maybe some rpm arms/bumpers. Running 2s lipo the driveshafts should hold up with routine maintenance.

    New tires/wheels of your choice, or a body
    Nothin' like a 4 on the floor and a V8

    RPM Arms . No matter which batt/motor combo you use these will break specially on curbs.

    But if your intentions are to go faster then its a MMM/2650
    MMM/2650, E-maxx Body=FUN !

    RPM A Arms are a must.

    New tires and wheels will be a very noticeable upgrade in looks and performance

    MIP X-Duty or Techno CVD axle kit are a great upgrade too.

    Aluminum Motor mount with larger slipper bearing.. Like the Kings head one.. but The Golden Horizons one is like half the price.

    I know you said chose ONLY one but without knowing the a lot of details its impossible to chose.. Things like: Are you happy with the traction in your tires ? Do you bang into things a lot ? lol

    Tires and Wheels....given the fact that you drive offroad. Get that Slash lifted up a little bit.

    If it cant stand up to the torture that you put it through and ends up breaking, it doesn't matter what your truck will look like cause it will still be broken. Do some research and see what people break, then mod accordingly.

    +1 (even though he's happy with the motor it's the BEST decision I ever made for the system)

    Also an Undertray/Shroud
    Tekno Rear and Front DriveTrain Kits
    RPM A-Arms
    Proline Shocks (These turned out better than I thought they were when I first got them)
    New Tires/Wheels
    Batteries, Batteries, Batteries

    Maybe get a fan for your motor/ESC

    +1 for the MIP X-Duty CVD Kit

    I have those for my Slash, probably the best upgrade I have!! Mind you, I went through about four regular shafts and one heavy duty shaft before switching over ...
