    Looking to upgrade my slash

    Looking to upgrade my slash 4x4 ultimate, I bought it 2 days ago used for 350 w a lipo battery, I ran it today against my cousins slash VXL n got toasted.....I'm looking to get faster I race dirt tracks n do some jumping mostly. This is my first car as I'm new to the hobby and don't know too much

    if you bought it used I would first go through the whole thing.
    take it all apart, check all the bearings/lube,tighten screws ect.

    Racing against the same truck with the same battery and gearing should be almost identical.


    then like Snowstorm355 Sayin,
    a very expensive car Is worthless with out a good driver.

    First car owned doesn't necessarily mean you've never driven them

    If you want to go fast, I strongly suggest you get a different motor system! The castle creations 2400 system will give the speed you want.
