I have started the same project. I've scored some new wheels to start it. Enjoy!
If your having tracking issues outside of being jacked to the moon. Check to make sure that your turnbuckles (toe-links) aren't worn out out back. To check this, While looking at the rear. Grab your...
Do not forget the body.
I am so glad that I waited for further upgrades. The Body wheels/tires, chassis and needed hardware for the upgraded arms are going to get my slayer off the shelf! FINNALY!
These updates should...
I have to agree with ya. The internals are metal, I do not see how they will fail. Now universals are another story.:lol:
After a second thought. The planetary gears are notorious for exploding....
I have a hole in the roof of mine from the same type of speed and driving. So much fun.
Your in Texas, You don't know what cold is! :lol:
I would go with 40 or 45wt if 60wt is your fav. If all I had was 35wt. I would be fine with that too.
You can tighten your screws tighter with those plates, Without any damage to your case.
I work in a plastics plant. And if a chassis is too big for them to mold. They have some tiny presses.
If you can wait. Get the JConcepts Gladiator Body. Its of the 2010 Ford SVT Raptor. The baddest production truck ever made period.
I was going to post "2010 Ford SVT Raptor Body" to match my Raptor. But JConcepts already on the ball. I cant wait.
I have the Revo kit. They are a must have item and should have been standard. IMHO>
Thew new tires fit yes, But the wheels are 12mm for the Slash 4x4.
When will Traxxas offer the new style wheel for the Slayer?:wub:
Are the front or rears bending more? Or is it a bit of both?
I just use the cheap stuff from the local auto parts chain. I also spray my tires with silicone when running on moist dirt. I do let it dry prior to running.
I'd bet the eRustler & Stampede CVD's will work.
If you look at the Slash 4X4 gallery. You can see that even though its a Revo based diff., The output of the diff is milled down more so then a...
Silicone spray does a far better job at waterproofing then WD40. WD40 is an oily mess.
Ive raced for a few years and have been into this hobby for a long time. I learned about the negative effects of front toe-in during my onroad nitro days (Doh! that did'nt help my lower a arm! LOL) ...
So true, I have switches on the 2.2 slash beadlocks (proline) and VXL and no issues here at all. 3s LiPo too.
toe-in the back aid's with traction and helping the truck drive straight. toe-out for the front makes the truck more forgiving and less twitchy. toe-in is not a good thing in front.
I have the Big Offroader as well. It is a very nice radio. 3 channels and the recievers are 30 bucks.
I seen in the lastest RCcarAction that you can "upgrade" your traxxas motor and esc at a reduced cost. IIRC give them your xl5 and motor. Get the VXL for $110.
A Slash is an extended Rampede. :lol:
