    High speed problem

    I was doing speed runs with my slash on 3s with the mmp 2400kv combo geared 20/52 32p gears and I ran into a problem.......my slash wants to fly lol I think the body is catching some wind and it flips over how can I fix this a buggy body would be nice if that would fix my problem what buggy bodys fit? Or how else can I fix this? Also what are some good road tires?
    Is it fast enough? No, no it isn't.

    My friend had a blitz that did exactly what you are explaining. We cut the windows out and it fixed the problem.

    That motor and gearing with 3s should get you in the mid 50s range, the rig will take flight around 45mph.
    Making a series of holes in the body will help a lot, or as you suggested a buggy body.

    That's a question for another person, I believe rag6 has experience with them as do many others who will chime in soon.

    I took my slash to the lhs and matched up a nitro body to fit the chassis. It was in the clearance bin for 10$, and is most likely discontinued. Not sure what it was called, but was a pro line body made for an ofna buggy:

    Keep an eye out for the MacFab buggy body. I have been beta testing a prototype, and it looks much cooler than the 1/8 4wd buggy bodies imo:








    As far as I know, they are not in production yet, but have been told they will be as soon as a few bugs have been worked out...

    Heres yet another option. Unless of course you are hung up on stickers Parma stickers are "basic". Great bodies lousy stickers.
