    E-Slayer

    I am looking for your pics of your E-Slayer with different tires. I'm just getting tires ideas.
    Thanks,
    Clay

    I looked thru the Slayer Pic Gallery for tire ideas. What I'm wondering is which tires perform the best on dirt on an E-Slayer? Badlands?

    the badlands will work great for bashing but most tracks don't allow it as they will tear up the track.

    lol naw. Most people here are bashers. I would rather be a racer which makes the e slayer limited to the mod class which can be tough to compete in so I didn't do an e-slayer conversion.

    When I do finally do this E-Slayer conversion, I have already decided to use these wheels because I HPP Wheel Hubs because they are 17mm hexes and 2.2 tires.

    I remember the revo platform handling eeyons better than the Max platform, and being much more durable. Do you guys find the same is true with an e slayer over a 4x4 slash? I wonder if the progressive suspension would be much better for hyooooge jumps! ( When I go for the largest jumps at full speed my slash goes into an uncorrectable forward rotation)

    What kind of tires are you using? I think remember someone saying that some tires may not be able to correct mid-flight. Are you using lipos? And are you at full throttle when you approach the jump? Because if your at full throttle, you may not have enough power to correct your Slash. I don't remember which way is needed to correct which direction. I have learned to correct, but it's been awhile since I have jumped. LoL

    I am decent at controlling a truck in flight. However, with my mt slash-2.8 badlands, losi 2800, 4s-I approached a skateboard ramp full tilt once. I swear to you the truck sailed a good hundred feet, and was waaaaay in the air.

    Ever since then I've been obsessed with trying to nail that jump. I've come close, but not quite. I wanna land it and get it on video. I believe the tail end slaps the ramp and sends the truck into a forward rotation. I've been playing with things to see if I can tone it down. This particular truck has been broken for a bit, though. I like having one truck that I mainly jump and go for crazy air with. Then another that mainly just runs around a track and stays at normal heights.

    If your trying to correct your RC mid air and your nose diving, pull the throttle forward. But make sure you release the throttle before your wheels touch the ground or you will strip your diffs and possibly your tranny. And I found that if you released the throttle just before you jump, then you will have power to correct your positioning.

    Heavier tires/rims will make it easier to correct mid flight but slow down your acceleration. Heavy tires are also why a brushless Revo can do a full summersault when you lock up the brakes mid air Always compromises everywhere, its just where you are willing to compromise to get the results you are after.

    The standard Eslayer conversion is a little top heavy to take corners at speed and has trouble keeping up with the 4x4 slash in the twisties. However drop the COG down and it becomes a very capable corner carver. Slash drivers were beating their best times at the track I was at thanks to the speed it can carry in the corners.
    If it didn't break you can do it again.
