I hear you. I wanted to see what the stock weight was because I always felt with the stock shocks it needed a little more dampening. Ill probably do 50 front 60 rear.
Went with the ones from Atomik RC. $30 for four, we'll see how long they last.
Bashing. Mostly on grass, some small jumps.
Just replaced my shocks with Atomik RC aluminum units. What shock oil weight is stock and what oil weight do you recommend front/rear?
Atomik RC corporate headquarters are in Idaho.
I'm considering these...
Bent a rear shock shaft yesterday and Im looking to upgrade shocks. Ive looked at Traxxas big bores and a set from Atomik RC. Any suggestions?
Also, what is the stock shock oil weight? Should I...
+1 on the needle nose pliers.
Add weights to the front of the chassis. The nitro slash is very rear heavy.
Thats awesome. Interested in how long it lasts.
With a properly tuned 3.3, even with the stock pipe, in this chassis, I cant figure out why people need more power.
I have upgraded the rear tires to Pro-Line Badlands and they are awesome for bashing off road. You will need a new set of rear wheels as well because the tires are glued to the wheels.
Ive got about a gallon through mine and I get about 10-12 minutes per tank.
Who makes longer A-arms for the Nitro Slash? I run mine mostly in grass with high grip and it rolls over while cornering very easily. Im thinking longer arms will give it a wider track and it will be...
+1 on this. Also you can cut holes in your stock body in certain places to reduce the parachuting effect. The holes let the air escape from under the body which keeps it from flipping over at speed.
Any bashers/racers live near the I-4 corridor in central Florida?
Wonder where they got 7.78 from? lol
This is taken directly from Traxxas' Site
SLASH (#58034) SPECS
Weight: 76.2oz (2.16kg) or converted with decimal 4.7625lbs
NITRO SLASH (#44054) SPECS
Weight (no fuel): 7.78lbs (3.53kg)
To keep junk out of the exhaust when its not running. Also by capping the exhaust and the carb when not in use, it will help to keep moisture from getting into the engine.
Plus the Nitro Slash is just over 3lbs heavier than the Electric Slash (according to Traxxas' spec sheets) causing it to have more pavement grip.
Right after unboxing
And the first day of...
Here's mine when it was stock
And during break-in
Once you understand lean and rich, and what to look for, tuning is relatively simple. Its not rocket surgery.
