A good charger, spare batteries, quality tools, aluminum motor mount, and aluminum slipper adapter. Don't waste money on a ton of upgrades they're a blast stock.
I thought I saw an adapter allowing you to charge any battery on the new charger
My son and I have 5 traxxas vehicles all mostly stock. We only run 2s and don't see the need for all the upgrades. I am a fan of the king heads motor mount and aluminum adapter.
Big fan of gladiators
I think you might be talking about the motor mount
Strongly disagree , I'm very happy with the Vxl in my 4x4s
I purchased my son's slash almost two years ago and now have 5 traxxas vehicles. Other than replacing bearings a couple times the stock motor and esc have been great for bashing and occasional...
The center diff is better for off road racing. Leave the slipper clutch in if you are just bashing.
Don't use super glue the pipe cleaner absorbs it and sticks to the drive shaft
Wrap a pipe cleaner around the shaft and shoe goo it to the chassis
Get the ultimate and a good set of tires and you can win novice or sportsman classes, it comes rtr.
Try antic speedtreads most if the guys at the local track run them.
I don't remember if I had to adjust my camber links when I swapped to protrac arms, but the stock vxl links did work so you might be ok with fixed links.
Proline protrac arms worked well for me.
I occasionally race my nearly stock ultimate with the center diff installed, proline caliber tires, gtr shocks stock rear springs , stiffer losi springs on the front. Get a lot of practice laps in...
The lhs here never stocks them. The owner had mine in a couple days after I asked for one. Never asked why he doesn't keep them on stock , maybe they are harder to sell due to the higher price.
Make sure you inspect the motor mount bearing regularly, if it siezes up the center diff will melt.
The calibers premounted on renegade wheels will rub onthe front. You will need to dremmel off some of the ribs or get the wide grey rustler hexes
Calibers for a dusty track, center diff allows the front wheels to pull the truck out of the corner rather than the rears spinning out and getting sideways
Try the center diff with 50k or lower and aluminum hubs for more rear toe in. Don't know your track conditions but I doubt gladiators are the right choice. My son and I race our slashes outdoors in...
Proline renegades rubbed on my truck , the wide grey rustler hexes fixed this. Pro line split six's do not rub
I would try sanding it out. Make sure you wait until it is completely dry
I think the rears do fit on the rear of he slash , just need to trim the body
I go about 3/4
My sons rustler has protrac arms on the rear. No flex or sag like rpm and no breaks through several days of racing and the occasional bashing.
