    Well I did it, went on road driving for real with traffic lol I fear though this is only going to build up my level of confidence for recrecklessness so my next attempt on 3s ill hop onto a higher flow of traffic! But here is the video check it out! Today I'm headed out to the track for some runs and maybe another video shoot!

    Whatever I just said.. I'm probably wrong..

    Hooked up a CC BEC to the Mamba Monster so I can get 7.4v to my waterproof Hitec servo and got my order of Avid Revolution bearings in the mail today. Made a custom order to fit with my XO-1 hubs, Kingheadz motor mount and all the others to equip the whole truck!

    Lol.. Mr. Bill, See what had happened was... Thanks for watching though!

    On a separate issue after running the slash at the track yesterday one I'm gonna need a lot of practice, two I think the diff is a must becAuse every corner I would spin out, like I had way too much power or sumn..the track is soft dirt, I almost feel like I should put the drift pro gyro I the truck to help with cornering lol!

    Ran my slash on the street today for the first time since I installed the new castle 2400 and did wheelies till I killed the pack. This motor is KILLER.

    Managed to obtain the top speed after one speed run on a slightly inclined street. So hard to control at high speeds. Messed up my GPS big time after a wreck. Too bad my daughter forgot to press the record button for video recording !?!?

    well ripped my newly purchased 4x4 slash with the big mamba monster 2200kv. it it completely apart now and i am thinking on what i want to do. what do you guys suggest on possibly a different chassis that will hold up with bashing and possibly racing? i honestly have no idea just looking for some advice. thanks.

    @Mr.Bill, it is kinda in the pretty side but I figured if this body gets demolished I could convince the wife for my next purchase and better color scheme.. I've accepted my fate that my slash is a little on the pink more than red side due to the lack of candy red coats before backing it with silver.. Lol.. As far as soften' up the shocks what weight would u suggest?

    @ guy that broke his chassis.. There are tons of chassis out there to choose from.. I have the SSC chassis and love it, STRC just came out with one that people are drooling over like the newest Nike shoes lol so u have options it's up to ur price range at this point lol!

    Clened and lubed ALL bearings. I found this great new place to bash but the dirt is almost fire place soot like and it don't take long for the bearings to get gritty. But man its fun.

    Well since mine is in pieces on the living room floor, I need to get it back together so I went to the hobby shop and got a new chassis, new axle(twisted), new center bearing, new axle bearing, new motor mount(that incases the center shaft bearing), and a new set of tires . I will try and post some pics later when I get her all together

    Today I covered the bottom of the STRC chassis with orange and clear vinyl.
    Then i use some "U" gasket on the side to help keep the chassis as scratch free as possible.

    my pinion gear got loose while i was trying the new 17t pinion i got today, i also got blue aluminum rear axle carriers she is looking good now and the right rear tire is straighter since the plastic axle carrier was warped and it was making the tire toe in really far. at least it gave me a reason to upgrade to aluminum

    Cleaned up my wiring by spooling up the servo and fan wires around a screwdriver.

    Still need a new ESC, a Brushless Hobbies 120A is gonna be soon...

    But no so soon because I don't have 70 bucks.

    I replaced all the screws with Hexcrews over the past two days. So far so good, I need to order a couple more but outside of that they look great.

    I replaced a TiN shock shaft. I bent it with a 40MPH crash with a curb, that also broke an A-arm & launched my GPS down the street! TOO MUCH FUN!!!

    I'll try anything once, maybe twice!

    What's up guys.. I have a couple of hundred available to spend on some upgrades for the Slash... what do you think of the list..

    TEKNO RC Big Bone Center Driveshaft/Outdrives Slash 4x4 TKR6855
    Slash 4x4, STRC Alum. Steering Bellcrank Set ST6845B
    Slash 4x4, STRC Aluminum HD Front Shock Tower ST6839B
    Slash 4x4, STRC Aluminum HD Rear Shock Tower ST6830B
    RRP 1050 Robinson Pinion Gear Six-Pack 48P/48-P/Pitch 16T-18T-20T-22-T-24T-26T
    Hot Racing, SSLF254D, 54T Steel Center Diff. Spur Gear, Traxxas Slash 4x4
    Traxxas Differential Oil Kit Revo TRA5136X

    Any other recommendations? I want to get a 3s Battery but I don't see the point in spending $70 bucks if I can't use it at the track.. And the Tekno driveshaft? Don't know much about it but it seems to be the rave on the streets lol... This will all be going onto the STRC Chassis I just ordered..
