    Not many options for slash tires?

    Theres only 1 hopup I can find that's dual profile tires, Integy. In offroad anyway. I found some 26mm foams for onroad action (rims + tires permamounted), but offroad choices seem to be crap? Do I just go to a 2.0?

    The reason I ask is it seems going to a 2.0 requires a servo purchase also.

    And in 2.0, whats good on a slash? I notice they aren't too popular compared to the e revo. Thanks.

    I ran the Hpi rally tires on black rims from the boss 302, the tamiya's would fit them as well but i got a set off ebay that was already mounted.

    I'd say a servo purchase is mandatory anyway. I found a pair on thetoyz but they're stricly on road, the plastics really cheap, I got all 4 for $16 though so it's not bad but I already chipped a wheel hitting a stone lol.

    *INTT3528SILVER wheels/tires <-- those look promissing, I don't know if those were the ones you were talking about, personally I want those and a set of the ken block gymkhanas!

    Lookin at those.

    already got these...

    I don't think the servo upgrade is mandatory if you keep stockers or the latter. However the former seems like it would kill the servo quickly.

    That's what I was doing when I found the brake adjustment, setting the steering endpoints/sub trim/dual rate.

    also lookin at axial ripsaws. I can only find sets of those on ebay so I wont link.

    those are pretty sweet lookin!

    I don't know man, my servo went out pretty quick, must have been the end points overturning too much, but the 2080s arent the greatest either way.




    I'm using those ^^

    my local hobby shop was supposed to have these in last month, they're unorganized.

    Thanks. Not to jack my own thread, but that rollcage looks like it functions well, its worn but your truck is pristine. I was thinking about getting that model as its 40 dollars cheaper than the other one, I suppose you would recommend it?

    It would be a good "body" to run those crawler tires with. And great GPS protection as well.

    yeah man it's nice, just a pain in the but getting parralel batts connected and disconnected

    I didn't see another one but yeah I still would have got this one and saved $40

    oh and I don't know if it was just me or what but I stripped the hexes out on the screws the first time tightening them, same with the trucks screws but not that fast

    They are way to big for the stock servo, and obviously stock gearing. They are only 40% taller than stock.

    The foams work great, she's wearing them now.

    For off-road I have the Tamiya rally blocks. They're quite an aggressive tread, but they hook up good, and they work on the mini slash with any 12mm hex touring car wheels (most TC wheels).
    You just want 0mm or +3mm offset.

    TQi, can you run a body on top of that cage? The picture is dark and I cant see posts.



    That looks cool but like it wouldn't work well with oversize tires. Like they would get caught in the back of the cage, or hit it all the time.
