    I went out and noticed this
    My rpm a arms are somewhat grinded away by my driveshafts since I had so much camber at the rear
    Oops..

    wait, lightbulb, i must have too much camber in the rear- maybe that's why there's a notch cut away on my rpm a arms.

    Reason i'm asking what size treads you plan on running. If you decide on 2.8's (stampede) i'd go with the 3800kv motor, it would be less heat to worry about (you know that already). Now staying with SC tires the 4600 would be a screamer!!! Just my input.

    It would have been..
    But he liked the idea of me buying a 20$ motor better
    Oh well.. Hopefully it doesn't die.. If it does I'm not gonna dump anymore into the motors..

    Just wait a few months.. Then I'll buy some stuff and my dad will be fine with it..
    I've spent 500$ in the past month.. Need to chill out for awile

    Talking about old slashes? My two chassis is from the first production run. Back when the tires were 2.2/2.2 and still am using the bodies that came with them. They are held together with mud tape and shoe goo but the bodies are still useable.
