    Just bought a Slash 4x4 RTR

    Hi to all,

    I'm new to the RC scene and want to know what upgrades you recommend for the the slash. e.g. Battery, tires, shocks, charger etc.

    Thank you for your help and patience with a noob

    I think the answer to this question needs to be a permanently stickied. It's infinitely more common/prevalent/used than say Steve Slaydens's set up is. I've not even done the steve slayden thing but Everyone and I do mean Everyone does atleast a few of these upgrades. So sticky Sticky STICKY!

    Really? who told you you cant drive it on pavement? Well upgrade your battery to a 40c or more 2s lipo atleast 5000mah and a hardcase. For charger, everyone has the opinion, i went with the dynamite passport ultrasport, can charge all type of batteries. The shocks, you can go with big bores, powerstrokes or hot racing shocks, the powerstrokes are 100 for 4, big bores are 45-50 for 4, and the hot racing are 20 bucks for a pair. Alot of people will say go with the powerstrokes.

    DONT buy aluminum, buy RPM. Only aluminum would be C-Hubs, steering blocks and rear hub carriers.
