    What did you do to your Slash today?

    In the Revo section this topic was an awesome way to keep up with everyone's builds etc! So here's what I did/ got for my slash today...

    Pro line Flo Tech Body, a flame decal set, and a deans to traxxas connector for my batteries... I'm thinking about doing some chameleon flames but I'm at a loss for the rest of the body!

    I ordered the TRCE magnesium adjustable shock towers, they finally got them cut! Ill be putting those in when they get here to see if it helps me tune the D8 shocks any better. Its the last chance for these shocks. If this doesnt do it Im selling them and going back to the SC10 bigbores. Ive tried everything under the sun, every spring combination, several different weight oils, different preloads, different pistons, different everything and still come out with the same result. If its set up for bumps and jumps it sucks in cornering, If its set up where it handles well in the corners it bottoms out on bumps and jumps. Cant find a happy medium.

    Looked at it, wishing I could buy a new ESC so I can run it...

    Army, what wheels are you running, I really like the look of those!

    Today ordered my "boy pee'n on Losi" sticker, hopefully that'll go over well at the track but figured it'd be an awesome edition to the truck.

    Still in debate mode on my paint job... Here are my two options..

    Chameleon Flames (red to Gold) all black body with either more chameleon flames on the roof and rear fenders or color changing pin stripe box within a box design.

    Second Option... Same chameleon flames but instead of an all black body a Candy red with metallic silver and same option flames or pin stripes.. What do you guys think?

    I was finally able to get off work before dark and get some run time in. Got to give the new tires a good flogging and see what they're capable of.

    Painted my body... Live and learn x10 lol disappointed in the outcome a little mainly because I'm a perfectionist! While painting the plastic glove I had on nipped the head of the can and caused some drips :-( and I should have done a few more coats of candy before spraying the silver... But it's done will post pics tonmorow! Plus side drove it on 3s for the first time and holy smokes its quick!

    It does take a while but it is so fun...like cleaning my Kimber 1911.
    I have the STRC LCG chassis on the way so I will just leave this in piece until it arrives.

    Are those the new cvd's in the rear of your truck? If so, how do you like them? Do they take a good beating and still hold up?

    Mjg44 u may not like the rr gen3 I have it Of advice is to rough up the rear clutch plate because it doesn't hold that well from the factory make sure you dip the clutch plate itself in alcohol to remove any impurities or it will not hold


    Sc love!!!

    My TRCE build is officially completed. Installed TRCE magnesium adjustable shock towers. Ive played a bit with the adjustments trying to tune in the D8 shocks. Much better with the adjustable towers. I got some improvement but now its snowing so all I can do is laps in the basement, 30x40 indoor oval with a blind spot where the stairs come down in the middle.... LOL

    I trashed my slash today, not exactly sure how, just giving it the normal abuse thats its use to. Anyway I have ordered a stock one all ready to get me back in action. Just a quick question while i'm talking about chassis's does anyone know if I could use my kingshead motor mount on the rally/slash lcg chassis????? I've included some pics for you all I didn't think I would see the day that I cracked this chassis.

    Yea it's about that time for a new one.. I have the SSC chassis but I know STRC just came out with a new chassis too I think the guys name is steve or wdyj or something like that.. it's all over the forum though..

    But on a different topic. Does anyone run a gyro on there slash? Like the drift pro? I was wondering if it'd work for corners at the local track leaving the slipper in instead of the diff?

    Yeah Mr Bill must have been, not exactly sure which one done the damage as I only noticed it when I lost drive to the front wheels and I picked up truck to see what was going on.
