Some time ago I started a thread because I was gonna build me a buggy with a 2" longer wheelbase to, further, improve handeling of my Slash..
Then a guy a work told me he saw a cool thing on his holiday in Portugal and he said I would probably like it...
He showed me a picture of a Polaris UTV.. I told him I told him I knew they race them in the US..
Looking at some pictures I showed him,a new plan started, I drawed up a new chassis...
Today I finaly started working on it and this is what I build.... My 1/6 (sort of) scale Polaris, Slash.
The only things of the original Slash are steering servo, the gears and slipper of the tranny, the front bearing carriers, bearings and that's more or less it..
The weight of the ca cage is 3lbs, wich means that it is about 1,5 pounds heavier than stock wich amazes me, so it's not much heavier than your basic tircked out Slash..
Set up for now (to find out that what I thought of really works),
Eightshooter beadlocks with bigger screws,
BIG 2.2 Mickey Thompson Baja claw's
Mamba Monster ESC,
HPI (Castle) 1965Kv 1415 size motor,
32p 26/56 gearing,
50000mAh 3S, wich could become a 4S when I want more Power..
So I hope to finish my build before next weekend so I can do some testing, and then some light and decals...
So tell me what you think, even when you hate it....!!!!
