New slash driver joining the ranks
My lovely wife gave my a slash 2wd rtr a month ago on my 30th birthday
Im new with rc cars but i flew rc airplanes over 10 years ago, i´ve been longing to get back to the rc hobby for a while now but i felt that i was finished with the flying. My wife who have noticed how much ive been talking about rc stuff and thinks its importent to have a hobby decided to buy me the slash.
Anyway i been driving it alot this month and 2 friends decided to get into the hobby aswell and bought slashes.
We have had tons of fun and have a big place to drive on aswell. One thing that supriced me is how much beating these trucks can take, we have done som serius crashing and collisions when racing against each other and the only thing that has broken is one nerfbar
The stock motor seems to be able to take alot of beating aswell, sometimes i have had some gravel or sand getting into the motor and it gets stuck or go really slow, then i just take the rear wheels and slowly turn them with my hands untill i get the gravel gets unstuck and then its just to drive again
After an hour driving the car is really dirty and then its just to shower it and put some wd40 all over it and then wipe it all clean and looks like new
Anyway im really happy with my Slash 2wd and my new hobby .
We have done some upgrading to rpm bumpers and now nerfbars
(my english is a bit crappy but i hope you all understand what im trying to say )
