    I broke it! Jumping a patio with chairs, fire ring, and the 2x6 border as obstacles. Also launching off a 2' wide wooden thrown together ramp. Shock came loose from the cap and lost the bladder. Was going to tephlon tape it till I got a bladder but ended up kicking the shock cap into the lake.....parts are ordered.

    Ran the stock system on 3s and tried to avoid flipping over. As a consequence, I hit my foot at full speed.

    New oil in all four shocks after I blew a cap and lost parts. Found you can't overfill with oil or the cap will pop off with little pressure on the shock

    car ran away while at the track today. full speed into a wall. remarkably this is really the only damage. only other issue is warped screw holes for the front bumper.

    Looks as though you might be in need of a chassis brace. I think a brace may have prevented that damage.

    Today i installed a full led light kit in my shell. Then I installed a new RPM bumper and light canister set. Then I wired in 4 LED's that arent included with the RPM KIT. Drilled out the RPM Light canisters for larger 5mm LED's




    The 10 LEDs in the body can be turned off an on via a switch in the body, and the light bar is always on, but can be easily unplugged via the wiring harness..



    a few new parts for the sl4sh today


    with a bunch more on the way.

    Today, i went out for my first bash session of the spring! But I forgot to check the bearings... After maybe 10 minutes of real fun, the truck started to sound pretty wierd. I tought it was a rock caught somewhere, but in fact, it was the rear pinion bearing that just exploded, and then, the slipper bearing and the spur bearing wnt on me... So i let you imagine what will i do tonight!!!

    Have Fun with your SLASH!!!

I’m use AE diff fluids..10k in front / 60 wt Center / 7 rear..You gottta just experiment with different weights until you find one that dials into the track and fits your driving style..Here’s some technical info from another forum

    EFFECTS OF DIFFERENTIAL OIL REPLACEMENT
    DIFF OIL THICKNESS CHARACTERISTICS


    Front
    Thinner
    • Increases steering into corners (off-power)
    • If oil is too thin the steering may become inconsistent,
    especially it can lose forward traction (and steering) during acceleration out of corners

    Thicker
    • Increases stability into corners during braking
    • Increases steering on-power at corner exit

    Center
    Thinner
    • Front wheels unload more during acceleration
    • Decreases on-power steering (reduces oversteer)
    • Easier to drive on rough tracks
    • If a high-power engine is used you could waste too much power and sometime “cook” the oil in the center differential because it “overloads”
    • More off-power steering

    Thicker
    • More all-wheel drive effect
    • Better acceleration
    • Increases on-power steering (reduces understeer)
    • Better suited on high-bite, smooth tracks
    • Car can be more nervous to drive especially if a high power engine is used - you might need to be smooth on the throttle

    Rear
    Thinner
    • Increases cornering traction
    • Increases steering into corner

    Thicker
    • Decreases rear traction while cornering
    • Reduces wheelspin
    Thanks, good info

    Nice wheels and tires. What are they. What's the size of them and will they fit on stock slash 4x4.
