Just for giggles I want a car body for my slash.
What has been done?
An "MT" setup with 2.2 crawler tires works fairly well on snow. Better than 1/8 Buggy Badlands did.
no snow pics, but heres the truck...
Front and rear bumpers both look like they are bent upwards. Did you store it smooshed in a tight spot for a while?
I'm using proline 30 series (2.8) wheels on stock hubs.
Any decent hobby shop has antenna wire. It's often in the plane section since they tend to rip antennas off more than we do. The "right"way to do it is to replace the wire right off the board, but...
If you decide to go with the GT3B then order one soon. They sell out FAST and take over a month to get back in stock.
I've had mine since december and love it. Only minor snag I had is that...
It wasn't usually the other racers that caused the problem. The pit board takes care of that. More often than not it was somebody's basher truck or someone's kid playing with their RC in the...
I always wonder when guys talk about how much their trucks are broken whether they are having bad luck or simply don't know the limits of their truck. My first time at our local track I made the...
Proline chassis plate. They developed it to reinforce the weak spot in front of the rear shock tower.
I used am for months, but when the new Fly-Sky GT3B radios came out so cheap at hobbypartz I switched and will never go back. Twice the range and no more scrambling to change crystals when somebody...
Lots of easy fixes for this. I put one of those soft foams tubes that you get for pencil grips around the drive shaft at the opening and wedge a piece of tire foam into the slipper opening.
Yep, the brushless system weighs more. If you've tried everything else you may need to shift your battery forward or do other things to help the weight balance.
All the Current ones are. If you get a radio from a couple years back you could wind up with a full-sized Rx.
Why use am though? 2.4 radio gear can be had for just a couple bucks more.
Nearly-new Used VXL systems can be had for around $100.
New VXL systems can be found for $150
Pic info thread:
Clean and simple, just the way I like it.
Most paints need thinned for airbrushing. How much depends on the paint and the brush.
I have an XL5 in my crawler, and while it does OK the lack of drag brake does not make it suitable for competition crawling.
A good 35t like the ones from Holmes Hobbies will give you a good balance...
most tracks have a 4x4 mod class, but no 4x4 stock class. On a tight technical track it doesn't matter since you can't use any more power than the 4x4 comes with from the box. On a track that is...
Yep, you nailed it. First thing to double check is that the lower seals in the shock are in place, otherwise all your shock oil may have drained out already.
Axial Beadlocks with 2.2 Proline Moabs that are taped with a high quality duct-tape. Crawler tires must be taped for use on a slash or they balloon tremendously and will shred sooner or later.
i use Liquid Wrench Telfon spray. No residue so no dirt sticking.
Skis on the front helps, but even then you need firm snow, not fluffy powder.
Softer snow is better handled by an "MT" setup, but even then if it's too deep or too soft you just bog down.
2wd - more durable, less maintenance
4x4 - easier to drive, especially when bashing on rough terrain.
