As this is my first post on traxxas forums I'd like to say hi to all at the same time *wave hand* As I'm an international customer I recently was able to order a new slayer pro from towerhobbies with a $100 discount. I've had my eyes on one for a long time, but finally getting one in mail sometimes this week
My first nitro was a Savage X SS and sold it to afford a HPI Baja 5SC SS kit. At that point I was also a bit tired of the moody nitro engines, but I got a weakness for SC trucks and the Slayer Pro just speaks to me in all the right ways. I've studied it carefully and I really like everything about it. And coming from 1:5 scale lately, a truck this size is actually a relief to work on hehe and CHEAPER... oh SO much cheaper. I'm almost afraid of bashing the baja.
I'm thinking of buying SC8 wheels soon as I think those are really cool, and the traxxas raptor body which I know I'll have to trim a little to make it fit, but want to try.
I'm wondering though...
If possible I'd also like to race this truck on a nearby track. In my area there are mostly 1:8 buggy people running xrays and mugens and such, and they're calling anything with an HPI or Traxxas mark on it a toy in comparison. But SC's are very different from buggys in general and I'm wondering if it be made raceworthy in its class, or if it already is as stock?
