I agree! Good set-up.
If your looking for power stick with the LiPo's. 2S.
I run my slash with the Castle 4600 with a VENOM 5000 mAh 7.4v 50c LiPo. She screams and is still controllable.
I tried a 3S 4600 LiPo 11.1 volt and I couldn’t keep the front wheels on the ground...
They will be a little lighter. 3S will be like poring steroids on your Slash. She will rocket with 3S LiPo. Just monitor the heat and you will be fine.
Looking good, well done!
Many 2S LiPo’s are 7.4 to 8.4 volts.
“Tis nothing but a flesh wound”……….
Different strokes for different folks no use dog plying on anyone.
Running 3S is does heat up the motor really fast. It does give twice the speed but the motor can quickly be trashed by the high...
They are on back order. Should be the first of the year, so the check is in the mail.
I just installed the Castle Sidewinder in my 2WD Slash. I am running 2S LiPo's with the set-up and I just stayed with stock gearing. It is like my Slash just took steroids. It is 55+ mph on speed...
Many of us have smoked a motor. These things happen when you are pushing the envelope and trying new gears, wheels, different motor, etc. Many of us color outside the lines and try to make our RC...
I bought the kit and it’s in the mail. I mainly bought it to show everyone I refuse to participate in a recession.
If you are losing reception at short distances because of a broken antenna and your repairs do not work to repair or replace the antenna, I would bite the bullet and buy a new receiver. I would not...
Just out of curiosity, how fast were you going? :)
Please share some photos of your design. Thanks.
The heat is brutal on plastic and running in the AZ summer is tough on all the parts. I swamped mine for the Integy Aluminum and they are doing fine.
Thank you for sharing. I had thought about both places for a possible install on my Slash. I couldn’t get an accurate reading from the Yoke when testing. I would get 2mph reading on one run and then...
Specktrum markets the radio to the electric drivers as well, so don’t kid yourself that the DX3S or DX2S is only for nitro. The only issue I have is the RPM Sensor on the Slash. I have it mounted the...
I use the Hyperion EOSO606i AC/DC Charger. With this charger you can just about charge...
You have a good point on the front weight. It would be nice to experiment with the theory and see if you can get more stable jumps.
I am going to try to cut a hole in the Gearbox Cover and see if I can get the sensor close enough to the spur gear for it to work. I was just hoping someone was more creative then me so I did...
I have both the DXS2 and DX3S Spektrun radios and have run both radios with my Slash fleet. I mainly use the heat sensor to monitor the motor temperatures. I live in AZ and the heat is brutal on the...
Has anyone successful installed the Spectrum RPM Sensor in his or her Slash 2WD? If so, can you share photos?
