    I've got mine!

    And I'm ready to bash. I have a few minor upgrades that I want to do to it, and then I'm going to drive it.

    Personal opinion so far: it's very good, but with a few better parts it could have been great!

    Full review to come!

    Going to do a few simple upgrades. Some suspension tuning with different springs, a resonator tuned pipe, a Davis con rod, and some other simple things. It's going out and getting broken in on Weds, since the south-cen PA weather will be approaching 50 degrees, and it's gonna be close to 60 this weekend so I should get to run it a bit.

    One other thing I'm going to do, even though they aren't the right size, is to put nerf bars on it. The pipe exit is lower than the chassis and it's very unprotected from bottoming out. A nerf bar will protect it a bit, and one on the other side might help save the body a bit in rollovers.

    I got the Rob Mac edition, and it is stunning. I'm making a set of mudflaps and putting a rear number plate just to add a bit more realism.

    Pics, a review, and possibly vids will soon be forthcoming.

    True true can't agree more.
    I for one can't wait to see a good vid and even a small review of the new slash and how well it handles out

    I've actually deleted it because bigdadd42069 is trying to bump up his post count.. And this post has nothing but an emoticon anyways...

    I'm waiting for weather over 40 degrees and no rain. I can post some pics, but south-central PA weather hasn't been cooperating for break-in or running just yet.

    Great idea on the nerf bars, I think I'm going to fabricate something for mine as well...

    I'll post pics when I'm on my computer, but I put nerf bars from an electric Slash on this one. I just installed them upside down so that the didnt drag and interfere with the ground clearance. They still aren't as wide as they need to be to protect the body, but the pipe and the throttle servo now have a bit of extra protection. It was a simple mod. I only had to drill 4 holes, and where I have them mounted I didn't have to remove anything else to drill.

    With great brushless comes great responsibility.
