    I guess that depends on what you want this beast to be when it grows up. Do you want to race it or make it a bulletproof basher?

    I'm still using a Venom Pro2 charger that the guy at Hobbytown sold me for $55 over 3 years ago when I switched to LiPos. Now I'm into RC flying (or "air-bashing" as we call it) and there are days...

    I've never had a Traxxas LiPo so I can't comment on that, but everything I've heard is that they're high quality batteries. That said, to get a significant increase in power, you'll have to go to...

    I would never use that battery again. Seriously, it's not worth an injury or damage to your Slash (or house). I don't know anything about your charger, but I'd put money on it being a bad cell in...

    I did twice, although it was full throttle in reverse. I replaced the receiver and all was well again.

    I'm sure that there isn't a street-legal car in the world that could beat a 4s Slash 4x4 in a 200 yd sprint, think about the power to weight ratio on a Slash, it's insane!

    It's pretty easy to overtighten the springs on the bellcranks when using the STRC upgrade. You'll know you've overtightened it when you start stripping out servo gears regularly. My advice would be...

    Just one guy's opinion here but I think you need an IR temp gun even if you're running 2s. I have managed to overheat the ESC and push motor temps north of the recommended max of 180F on 2s when...

    Another option is getting some 17mm adapters and run buggy tires/wheels. Buggy tires can be found super cheap on ebay here in the US. Sorry, no idea about price/availability in the UK.

    The easiest option is to replace it with a stock, premounted tire, and wheel. I know a lot of guys will say otherwise but I've never had any luck removing a tire from the wheel without making a heck...

    Sorry for the delay, we've had some rare snow around here so I've been busy snow bashing with the kids.

    Remember that it's just math. And easy math at that, right? 2200kv means 2200 rpm per volt. So on the surface it appears slower, but being that it's a larger motor, it gets a lot more torque so...

    I'm not sure about the size of the bullet connectors, but yes, the 2400kv motor should work with the SW8 ESC just fine. That said, I've seen the SW8 combo with the 2200kv motor for as little as $140...
