I am hoping someone might want to sell me a set of fronts and...
As the title say, I am looking for a set (total of 4 - both fronts and rears) of Stock OEM Traxxas Slash 2WD shock assemblies? I want the units to be ready to bolt on.

So you didn't change out the springs...?
I am still trying to figure out how these work, but I am sure I will get it shortly...lol
Yes, that is exactly what I am after....lowered height, for speed runs.
What do you mean "internal and external" limiters?
Do you have a link to the items you used?
the only reason I didn't...
Thanks Billy Bones,
That is one beatiful machine!
What is that body called?
And as for my spring question, maybe my thick skull, just isn't understanding.
But, if I have a tall spring keeping...
I am in the midst of transforming a Slash 2wd into a speedy street runner.
So I was hoping all the slash experts here might be able to put me onto a set of springs that will work with...

I am sure one of you must have an almost ready to run chassis sitting around the shop collecting dust you want to sell?
I thought it might be fun to do a build up with my son from...
Well, I found out the hard way...what happens when the set screw on the pinion gear comes loose....
The pinion shifted, and the screw chewed the heck out of my Spur gear.
I bought one the other day, and I say 140 on motor last night, 100 on esc, and 98 on battery, so I think I am good, oh, and it's hot as heck here, so that may play into it as...
Well, I put the new motor in last night, and honestly, I thought I was going to screw something up...not that I doubt my ability or anything, but I just have that...
I understand both points, and I am going to give this new motor a shot.
I have put my faith in Traxxas that thier product will stand up.
However, if this happens again, I may...
Yes you are correct, I am running the stock 11t pinion. I am thinking about trying a 10tooth...just to be on the safe side...not sure.
Everything is bone stock with the exception of the battery...
Well, here is an update.
Looks like Traxxas came good for a New Motor.
It is in the mail, on its way to me as I type this.
Now I only have one concern.
What are the chances of this...
I am looking for a decent ( protective ) way to transport my son's 2 Slashs and my Stampede from pace to place?
We are headed camping in a couple weeks, and I want to have all the r/c gear...
Thanks, The unit looks exactly like the one that is still sold today?
I am just not sure how long this style has been offered?
2 year, 5 years etc....?
All, as the title says, is there anyway to tell how old a Traxxas Rustler Nitro is?
Is there a date code, or can I tell from the serial # some how?
Any tips would be appreciated.
Thanks all....I think I might give it a try...and yes, I suppose if I don't use it, or its a real pain in the you know what, I could sell it.
The Rustler runs, so I really don't need to "get it...
Yes I hope it works out....it's just killing me. I use the truck twice, and now I have to wait again...I tell you, maybe my wife was right...I should never have bought it...haha, nah,...
Well, just a small update.
I talked to Traxxas Support, and Ryan was super nice.
He thought my scenario sounded odd, and said to return the motor right away.
So I pulled the motor, and shipped...
As the title says, I am on the fence about buying a Nitro Rustler.
I have friend who has had one on his garage shelf for a while, only using it once in a while, and he says he wants to un-load it.
Thanks for all the feedback.
After I cooled down, I went back and has another peak at the motor. I can't even spin the little sucker.
Yes the motor was hot to the touch, but nothing too...
Everything is stock!!!
