    You can do just about anything. I believe there are enough aftermarket parts you can build an entire 1/16th RC without using a single Traxxas part!
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    All depends on how you drive it. Race or bash? Steel driveshafts and lipos first. Then upgrade as you break.

    I changed my slash to merv suspension. I was tired of rolling over all the time. A arms, axle shafts and all tie bars.

    You can keep the stock shafts with proper slipper settings... I have; even on 3S.

    Is it brushed or brushless? Brushed would make a better crawler

    If the motor is blue it's brushless.
