Follow the Slash spec setup guide on the site! Camber adjustments are huge benefits, shock mounting positions, big bore shocks are a good place to start, and most important are the correct tires for...
Big Bore shocks are the best thing I did, besides applicable tires!
Who works on it?
I went with jconcepts pre-mounted Goose Bumps for our local indoor track! The wheels are sick looking, and the tires perform well on the harpack clay!
Get the right tires!
So...For the past year or so I have been racing with rears all the way around, and never really noticed anything negative? But the Barcodes have had it and my other set are Bowties but with the stock...
The reason I asked is because the local track/hobby shop had sold me wheels/tires and I noticed they were all rears! I brought it up to him and he said thats what most people were running, and yes,...
I also used the extra stock spacers I had! I think I have a large and one down from that on each rear, just to keep the rear arms level!
What's the deal with Traxxas running the different off-sets on the front/rear wheels? If you ran the same wheel all around you could rotate your tires? I've heard of some people that do this...What...
Bent way too many stock shafts, not so with the Big Bores, and action is much improved!
Another mention would be camber adjustments!
Won't do that again...Not bad for a shelf queen...But for racing...Thanks!
Uh, ya, why???
I have a couple two year old Venoms that still perform well, and then one newer that doesn't?
Yes, it was pre-painted and from ebay...
I left my gearing all stock, and until recently, just added bearings all the way around!
Go through the owners manual, great wealth of info in there!:)
I've got one, actually it's for my son's Rustler, first day at the local track the wing broke off, no prob, still looks cool, second time at track, almost cracked in half, now it's all taped and...
And the Rustler rear arms are wider...The main reason you change them, or the body will rub on the tires on compression! Don't forget your body mounts for that Rustler to Slash conversion!
For the indoor track your running...Where do you have your shock mounting positions?
The slash and rusty motors are located the same, the slash has a larger bumper, the rusty not! Look for a motor guard, great investment along with the front rpm bumper!
Ya, if your seriously racing every week! Otherwise, with a good set-up, proper tires, and alot of practice, a stock slash vxl can be competitive IMHO!
Those 5975'S are for the Slash...Yes they'll work, but are skinnier and taller. I actually like the stock set-up for all-around stuff, but yes, there are options...Proline Trenchers, Dirt Hawgs,...
