    I decided to use some stabilization on the video. Not a lot, just enough to get rid of some of the shakiness. I am still playing around with the camera and editing software to find the best combo!...

    Thanks Er33!! I have had no issue with motor temps at all with this gearing on the Sidewinder 8th setup. That's pretty much the reason I went with it - I got sick of overheating the velineon :) I...

    Well, that time of year again! We got an inch or so of snow and it's time to turn the Slash 4x4 back into a snow bashing machine!!

    I hope you do it man!! I want to see it! Theoretically, if the 2s battery can get the 5700kv motor up to peak rpm, and you have the right gearing for it, it should hit that speed. As Dad says......

    I destroyed a 12t pinion when the bearings blew out and the balls ate up the gear teeth.

    I'm now running 13t with the 54t (stock) spur with 4s It will do about 35+mph.
    On 3s that would equate...

    Haha - no it will never reach top speed on grass (many wheelies until is slips the tires). And don't get me wrong - I've upgraded about every part in this Slash. It's the only way you can handle...

    Yup - best upgrade yet... only problem is that on 4s it had the power to rip my 2.8" trenchers off the wheels :) But the motor and ESC never got hot after two back to back packs.

    +1 on the LCG Chassis. Awesome upgrade! Also, if you are going for axles, the XO-1's will fit with the matching hub/carriers. You can usually find take-offs on ebay for cheap.

    In my opinion, the Velineon is too small for a heavy 4wd truck. When I geared up on 2s to try and hit the tripples at the track, it would heat up like crazy. I couldn't even imagine this setup on...

    I would agree... 18/86 would be a good start with 2.8's on 2s. See how it drives, check temps, and go from there.

    +1 on both the dirt hawgs and badlands. I also really like gladiators. Some of the best all around tire I've had.
