    Outerwears?

    I want to hear some reviews on the outerwear if anyone has any. Does it cause heat issues, how well do they work, etc. Also, Will it work with a roll cage?

    Best thing I ever bought for my truck, everyone should have one. I just yesterday got a 2nd one for my on-road truck.

    I use outerwares for my slash ONLY when I don't want others to see what trick motor or servo etc im running, other then that, it's overkill for the indoor tracks I race at. I have removed the driveshaft shield and gear cover to reduce as much weight as possible and tried the outerwears guard in leu of and found my motor was getting unusually hot. After removing the outerwears guard the motor didn't seem to have a problem cooling down any longer, keep in mind that I also use 35c 2s LiPo batteries with a fan ONLY on the esc and NOT on the motor. A motor fan might be necessary for myself if I do decide to continue to use my outerwears while racing in the future.

    I've run an outerwears shroud since buying my slash 12 months ago and I'd highly recommend it.
    Also did extensive testing with temps running 2S/3S and noticed marginal to no differences when running with/without the shroud. I'm not running the stock esc fan, and just a small heat sink on the motor.
    ScubbaSteve, I think if you are having heat issues I'd look at your gearing before removing the outerwears.

    I run stock gearing... I'm leaning towards the outerwears being the reason as to the slight difference in temperature. I've tested this theory with the outerwears cover on, and with it off. Temps are noticeably different when the cover is off.
