Nice job there Grimmy - Rally looking sweet.
Installed Big bore shocks on all four corners, switched out the springs to Losi green up front and Silver on back.
Also installed Castle sidewinder ESC combo with 3800 kv motor. Geared 21/90 and big...
But with the great help of a member from here that offered assistance, my little beastie is back...
If your going with 3S, just keep an eye on ESC / Motor temps.
Went out with my son yesterday to do some bashing on asphalt (parking lot) and he runs a 3S with his Rusty VXL and stock gearing. He...
Yes, sorry about that Billy - replacing the stock gearbox with the hybrid one this weekend, and will use lithium grease to lube up the gears. Leaving stock diff as is....
Thanks for all your help
Thank you all for the information. The FLM diff looks sick ! Hot Racing makes one too. Definitely worth the money.
Another question - would it be OK to use Mobil 1 synthetic grease (red) instead...
Going to be installing the hybrid gear box for Slash 2WD. So, while I am in there, wondering if it will be worth it to do seal mod on stock diff gear and fill with oil/grease ? Strictly...
+1 on throttle control. You can also put limiters in the front shocks.
Running a 2wd slash vxl system for pavement bashing. I replaced all four stock shocks with the big bores, using Traxxas shock oil. Also installed limiters in front shocks to drop front end about 1/4...
Cant go wrong with the SPC lipo's. I use the Hitec X1 charger. It will charge Lipo/Nimh/Nicad and Pb (lead acid) and easy to use. Also has a Lipo storage charge setting.
Mostly a pavement basher here, so I run the Proline 2.2 street fighters on the rear of my Slash 2WD vxl, and kept the stock tires on the front.
I find that they grab pretty well and noticing...
+1 on the street fighters...
Not to hijack thread....
Hey FuriousSlash, love your Slash lid, is that a custom one ?
I run the 2WD VXL with SPC's 3S Lipo 4300mah 40C with stock gearing and street fighter tires on the rear.
Saying the truck is quick is an understatement.
I get over a half hour easily, but I...
I put on a set of Street fighters rear tires for my slash this weekend, as I do most of my bashing on pavement. Wow, they really grip. Good luck on the track.
Cool, didn't realize that. I am using the multi function knob for throttle sensitivity so my slash doesn't leave the atmosphere when I hit throttle on 3S lol... (knob fully right). I will look into...
Your TQI has two red buttons on top, right ? (Menu and set). You can use them to re-program the multi-function knob for throttle. I think its factory set as a steering sensitivity...
I am running mine with a 3S lipo 4300 mah batt with stock gearing for the 2WD vxl and its a rocket !
Just keep an eye on the motor/ESC temps with the lipo and go easy on the throttle !
Heading to LHS Saturday to pick up heatsink for motor. I will look for the TRX fan.
Running Stock gearing on Slash - 23/86 I think.
First time running the 3S, hit throttle a bit too hard, as I was used to running the stock battery, and slash took off with the front wheels in the air, dragging the rear bumper on the...
Thank you all for the great information. I decided to go with the Big bores (got a nice deal) with the Losi springs.
Newbie to RC and having a ball with my stock Slash 2WD VXL, especially after running it with the Lipo 3S !!
During my last bashing session, I bent one of the rear shock shafts. My...
