    Well, I jumped it full speed off a jump that is up to my waist straight into a tree, and only my rear bumper broke from the 2 meter high fall! I'll have a vid up soon!

    Tested my Slash MT today again. Running a Turngy ********* 2100kv with 120esc on 4s, gearing is 19/54. I don't pop any wheelies with that gearing but been primarily running on pavement due to the grass being wet and I havent received my stampede receiver box yet. I can't even go past half throttle on pavement because I loose all traction and the truck just spins even if I'm going 20mph. Tried some anacondas but no improvement, truck looses all grip past half throttle.



    This happened as I was trying to chrono a high speed pass reading. I was trying to slowly bring the truck up to speed but lost control as I checked for traffic then tried to go past half throttle. Skidded straight into the sidewalk with brakes fully engaged. It was 20 degrees out today and the lower control arm didn't stand a chance but a 5 min arm swap and I'm ready for tomorrow.

    Get some foams, some stiff springs with less rebound to keep the tires planted, tape up the inside of the tires to prevent ballooning and you should be rocketing down the road in no time!

    Well I actually Broke my local indoor race track. Thats right my Ultimate took out a fairly large piece of the yellow plastic tubing used for lanes. My truck is fine, but not so sure about the track missing a guard rail.

    It's ok, I had to dremel it in a few places for the aftermarket servo and center driveshaft. Not sure why the servo horn was rubbing, tight tolerances I guess.

    I also have a 2wd slash with the standard chassis. The lcg defiantly handles way better, no rolling. The 2wd handles rough terrain better. If your mainly bashing but want performance ,the Traxxas lcg is the ticket. Adding a Outerwear cover keeps most of the dirt out.

    That said, the STRC chassis might be in my future if they ever get blue kits back in stock. The 4x4 is destined to be on the track.

    I got allot of work done to my slash, but its the reg chassis. All i do is bash. Really wanting to convert to that chassis so i don't flip over as much.

    Kinda like my slash, waitng for the bearings for the steering. Then it should be good but then I have to wait for snow to melt.

    Ok, let me set the scene....My son decided to run our 4x4 into a curb at full speed, breaking the front right a-arm and popping the top off the shock losing the silicone diaphragm and spilling all the shock oil. Being that we're both new to the RC world, I walked my wife through the Traxxas parts list to show her how much it was going to cost to fix the broken parts; it all came to about $15 bucks.

    However, while we were in the hobby shop I decided to replace all the a-arms with black RPMs. And since I needed to rebuild the front right shock, I decided to upgrade to Pro-line performance shocks all around. I also went ahead and picked up a couple of Traxxas 7.4v 7600mah batteries.

    As you've all figured out, our little trip cost just a tad more than I had originally alluded to in the garage. Needless to say, my wife is less than thrilled with me and I can't wait to head to the track tomorrow with three fresh batteries. :-)

    This happens to me everytime I go to the lhs for replacement parts. Its just way more fun shopping when you can hold the parts in your hand rather than just looking at a picture.

    At lunch I finished swapping out the rear A-arms and stock shocks for pro-lines. Then I ran it for the entirety of a 4200 mah lipo. I LOVE IT! These shocks are amazing. The only thing I need to do now is tune the rear so that it doesn't bounce as much. The front end is money, but the back end likes to come up a little on the landing. I took off any and all pre-load to give the springs some more travel room, but they still feel really stiff. I'm running 30w oil in them. I'll have someone a little more experienced than me take a look at them tonight at the track. Tonight will be our first outing at the track together as a family and my first outing with my own car. I think my son is going to love running "his" Slash in training mode. (He's only 6)

    Wish us luck and if anyone has any input as far as the shocks go, I'd love to hear it. I'll take my video camera to the track tonight so I can post a video of what I'm seeing with the rear end.

    -Rob
