    Slash

    Alright so I just recently sold my dads revo 3.3 (tried to convert to electric but it had so many problems and we just sold it) so I gave him my stampede 2wd and he wants to convert to a slash. He's already got some nice PL Mashers 2.8 MT wheels. So I thought I will get the LCG chassis for me and hand down my HCG chassis to him. So with these wheels and a slash body this is what I believe it would look like, kinda like a Slash MT
    So we sold the revo for $180, and I just shipped out my CC SCT esc for the waterproof version at the cost of a $40 upgrade. And let's be on the safe side and say the LCG chassis is another $40 (I know I will get it a little cheaper, no place has them in stock anyways) so that leaves me with a good chunk of cash (I can't go over so I will leave a little extra room) let's call it $85 shipped
    So my question is what should I get?

    Here is a list of what I would like to get with that $85:
    -Robinson racing gears (19/56 32p) about $35
    -Rpm rear A-arms about $12
    -any suggestions?
    Here is a list of what I've done to my slash so far:
    -STRC C-blocks
    -Aluminum rear bearing/axle carriers
    -STRC bellcranks
    -PL Badlands on PL beadloc's
    -Rpm front a-Arms
    -rpm front bumper
    -rpm rear bumper
    -rpm LED light canisters (Front & Rear)
    -LEDs
    -Rpm mud flaps (totally worth the money! They just look awesome)
    -Rpm rear bumper mount (the stock one kept popping off from jumping)
    As you can see I'm a big fan if rpm lol, can you believe I just got this slash for Christmas! It lasted stock for about 2 packs the out some of the rpm stuff I got for Xmas along with it.
    Here's my slash (it's a roller for the next 2 weeks ) Please help me spend my money! Lol

    Get an strc layshaft and run a team ae slipper instead of that all steel one. You can still get 32p if you want but you'll have a a lighter, more adjustable slipper.

    Will the Robinson racing spur still work with the team associated slipper?

    No. You use team ae spurs. That's why I recommended it, to avoid using a metal spur.

    If you're not dead set on 32p avid makes the best clutch for 10th scale race trucks, but they're only available in 48p.


    The team ae clutches are better than the stock one, but the avid is an upgrade for the team ae trucks. I never ran a vts clutch but I did run the v1 and vented v2 and the avid is a lot better than thoes ones.

    So say I got an avid slipper and spur, and a RR pinion. Let's say I got 25/89 48p (2.93 gear ratio) which would be about the same as 32p 19/56 2.94 now I'd say that's pretty close! Can you give me a link for the spur gear and the slipper? I'm not sure where to look.

    84 tooth is as close as you can get to the 89 you were looking for.

    Slash

    Ok that's close enough, I'll probably order a 28t and a 29t RR pinions to play around with. Is this kit a bolt on for the slash or do I need anything else?
    Also what else would be a good upgrade?
    Still got another $30 for upgrades

    You need the strc layshaft and team ae slipper adjustment nut to run the avid clutch. The last 30 bucks could go for a sealed diff. I think hot racing sells one for right around that price.

    Ok, perfect. Right now I just filled up my diff with epoxy to lock it up, I've been running the locked diff for a couple weeks or so, and I love it. Donuts are fun! Lol

    Well, I wish I could race. I don't have a local track. I'm gonna see if I can build one in my backyard. I'm just a basher right now.

    I would totally recommend locking the diff, or at least a limited slip diff. I'll have to check if I have a video, I just sent my esc out to castle for a waterproof version.

    I could only imagine! You could power through turns instead of diffing out all the time, I hated that I couldn't do donuts. So I locked it and it was the best homemade thing I did I'm very happy with it

    Sweet, I just looked if I had a video of the locked diff. But I don't sorry. Once I get my system back I will post of video of it for ya.
    So for the avid slipper/spur do I need the strc layshaft? Or is there a different one that will work?

    So what do you have? Just a pinion on the motor and a spur connected to the drive shafts?
    Pics?

    Yes, that would be the motor tester! If it lasts more than one pack. It is the best motor. Lol I wonder what 6s with a mamba monster esc would do!

    Yeah, that's a good trans to start with. That thing would rip! You can't floor it like you can with a stock trans though, it would go through the stock driveshafts in one pack

    I couldn't agree more, a locked diff serves no purpose unless your in deep sand and would wright your last place finish in stone on a track.

    IMO if you made it ten foot with a direct motor to axle setup it would be impressive.
    With out any gear reduction the motor would be extremely over taxed.

    Nope, a limited slip is what helps control a power slide, even in a drag car a sealed diff would be a pain to drive at high speed.
    I've experimented most of my life with limited slip rear ends in 1:1 cars to get them thru a quarter mile as fast as possible, a locked rear end doesn't cut the cake.
    A stiff setup is fine but not a locked diff.

    Slash

    So if I get the avid slipper/spur kit, should I upgrade the layshaft?
    Why would I upgrade the layshaft? How does it improve anything?

    Its not about improving the layshaft, although the strc does come with a solid pin instead of the hollow sping pin traxxas uses. You use the strc layshaft because its designed to work with team ae style slippers. a traxxas layshaft will fit a traxxas slipper, and that's all. An strc layshaft let's you use the slippers designed for other vehicles.

    Yes, and the slipper adjustment nut from team associated. The traxxas slipper adjustment nut is a metric thread where as the strc uses sae threads.
