I got my GTR's on ebay for $28 a set, $56 total. The Pro-Lines are good shocks but are going to cost you almost $100.
You are probably not too hard on your new truck. The shock caps and shock shafts are a weak point and are usually the first thing to fail. The Traxxas Ultra shocks are decent if you replace the caps...
The GTR shocks are awesome for the price. I was considering getting the Pro-Line shocks at first, but they were just too expensive.
They might still be much for an E-Maxx. Sorry, I can't help you out. I sold my 8ight 3.0.
You may want to try a Losi forum.
Stock classes usually only limit motors and ESC boost.
Spec classes limit what upgrades you can have as well as motor and ESC.
I would not recommend those shocks for a 1/10 scale vehicle like the Slash. They are huge 16mm shocks meant for an 1/8 scale vehicle that weighs twice as much as the Slash. I would go with the...
The Slash is a little heavy compared to other racing short course trucks, so I would stay away from aluminum if possible. If you want to add durability, I would only consider aluminum from caster...
He said that his is much louder now, which it shouldn't be. With the Associated slipper set up, my Slash is definitely less noisy, but is still not as quiet as my SC10. The Associated transmission is...
The Losi springs fit the Ultra shocks. You need the larger springs specifically for the GTR shocks.
These are the springs that come on the Slash 4x4 Platinum Edition.
I just installed the STRC shaft and V2 slipper in my Slash but have not had a chance to run it yet.
I ran the V2 and the VTS slipper in my SC10 and it was very quiet.
The slipper should not make noise unless it is slipping
Sounds like your gear mesh might be too tight.
RC Screwz makes a stainless steel screw set.
Pro-Line and STRC both make hardened steel king-pins for the Slash.
In the racing world, the Rustler is extremely outdated. Go look at the difference between a Rustler and a modern racing truck like the Losi 22T or the Associated T5M.
For bashers, which make up...
Looks good. I've got the parts for my V2 slipper on the way from Tower Hobbies.
You usually set your slipper to the track conditions that you will be running on, so it will be different for each...
I think he is referring to dirt oval modified racing bodies.
The VTS slipper uses three slipper pads instead of two on the standard slipper. It is for more powerful motors and is supposed to give a more consistent power transfer to the wheels.
I have been...
The standard slipper clutch comes on the Associated B4, B4.1, T4, T4.1, and the SC10.
You can also use the STRC shaft for the VTS slipper clutch that comes on the B4.2, T4.2 and SCT10.2 vehicles.
Is that the STRC bulkhead in the gun metal finish? The color almost matches the chassis color.
I have been using acetone for a while with good results. If you use a 5 gallon bucket you can soak all 4 wheels at the same time. I let them soak in a sealed bucket overnight and the tires will...
You can save a lot of time and trouble and just buy the black chassis.
The VTS slipper is a lot thicker than the standard AE slipper and it may not fit under the gear cover.
I don't think an Atomik receiver will work with a Traxxas transmitter.
With 2.4ghz the receiver has to be compatible with the transmitter.
What transmitter are you going to use it with?
That's the right one.
No. They make a screw kit for the 2wd Slash also.
