    Need help finding an adapter!!

    I wanna get a gens ace lipo for my slash. Where in the world do I find the adapter to charge it and to run it? My charger is a venom. Do they make a banana to trx adapter? Maybe someone has some part #s ?!?!

    What Venom charger do you have?

    You LHS can usually hook you up with the right plug to charge your battery, or one can be made fairly easy.

    I run soft case in my Slash and I havent had a problem yet and I've been running it for a few months now. I do run a hardcase in my VXL Digger but that is mainly because of the extreme abuse I put that truck through... repeated double backflip attempts on asphalt during demos can be hard on a truck

    Cut two lines on opposite sides of your battery tray and put the Velcro in one side and take it out the other.

    If you're going to spend all the time making an adaptor you should have just changed the connectors on the battery to accomodate...
