    I just came from an event on an indoor clay surface where the HCG Slash would get annihilated. The LCG can be competitive if you can keep the a arms screwed on, oil in the diffs, and the center...

    Futaba 4PLS is one of the best mid range radios out there. Airtronics also has a good one. Can't recommend the Spektrum stuff. Seen too many glitches with them. And if you want to stay with...

    Breaking both the c block and bearing carriers? Ouch. I never broke a c block, just bent the heck outta kingpins when the plastic c block flexed. Now with the plastic front carriers (knuckle) I...

    You are more likely to have damaged the balance plug or wires than the battery from such a short discharge. Unfortunately, I have also shorted a balance plug or two. Never any battery damage.

    But I have found that the plastic ears on the front carriers and the lower hinge point on the rear carriers to be frequent failure points when racing. Didn't matter if I ran RPM or Traxxas...they...

    The only aluminum parts you'll ever see me recommend without asking what you plan to do is the front C blocks of the 2wd trucks. I personally like the aluminum carriers as well. On the 4x4 you can...

    What he said!!! :)
    I run the MIPS on my 2wd rig because I want the rear weight bias...even if it means adding unsprung weight (a whole other discussion there). I run the Teknos on my 4x4 rig to cut...

    Rixster...I'll chime in with these folks. Stay near 3500 for the widest range of gearing choices. The stick gearing is 13/54 but can realistically only go down to about 11/54. If you start pushing...

    Having raced my Slash for 4 years now, a few times at a National level event where I was the ONLY Traxxas on the track (you don't have to be good...just pay an entry). I believe I have some pretty...

    Calibers are my favorite all around outdoor race tire. If I don't know what to run, I usually fall back to them.

    I have seen several of the Spektrum units, but not a Traxxas model yet.

    I personally don't like the idea at all for myself. What I saw of the Spektrum may make the truck easier to drive, but it...

    I think the bearing adapter was mentioned early in the thread. I would do some reading before putting in the chassis brace. I have read pros and cons for it. Personally, my Traxxas LCG kit(s)...

    For a brand new driver it is likely nice to have. But there is no way I would go to it.

    I try to support my LHS owner where I can. Some stuff he just can't compete on. Others he is quite competitive.

    They have lots of wheel travel in those rigs. They also have tons of forward bite when setup that way.

    I was just basing my input on the fact he is a teen working on a car for his sister. Trying to keep it simple and straightforward.

    Alfred, I am running the RPM gearbox setup on my Slash. It will be the easiest and most direct route for you to add some toe in.
    In addition it is cheaper than buying arms, wheels, and linkages to...
