i seen vids, the slash is a HORRIBLE jumper...
In what way do you mean? Mine jumps great, flies level and even if you enter a jump off camber it lands on all fours.
I think it jumps great. Tested one at the LHS today, and it was awesome. I only went off some small Wooden jumps, but it was a ton of fun and jumped great in my opinion.
BMW E21 323i.. My baby.
What vids did you see exactly? Skellyo's vids show the Slash jumping quite well, and the Pro Motion Foto one (before it was taken off), showed Slashes jumping on a race track. It jumps just like a Stampede, if not a bit better, and we all know the Stampede is a great jump truck.

I don't even care about jumping any more. Jumping lead to so many broken parts on my Stampede. (I can't believe it's almost gone.) It was fun for a while.. then it got old replacing broken parts over and over. Not to mention expensive. <yawn>
Skellyo's video is a prime example of what I want to be able to do. Lots of high speed, low altitude hops.
I doubt that most of the people (of course there will be exceptions) who buy one aren't wanting to take it through 6 foot slams.

Playing with our Slash all weekend and it jumps great, even off kilter it recovers great
mine jumps well also pushes whatever gets in front of me out of the well also
I agree! I do like to jump my trucks but like you said, smaller jumps on the track are perfect for me.Originally Posted by watts300
To err is human, to arr is pirate!
almost evry vid i seen it flys like it has wings!!
Check out my vid, this thing is the best jumper I've ever owned. The long wheel base helps it alot in the air but it does need a bit of throttle to keep the nose up, or atleast mine does. Also made for soaring jumps, not halfpipe style vertical jumps. I was jumping mine yesterday and was amazed how level it takes off.Originally Posted by hockeyplaya20@c
I think its one of the best jumpers I have seen, which is a shock honestly.
It's got more hang time than an NBA superstar.

It's great for track jumps it probably wouldn't handle a huge drop as well as a Rustler or Pede but it can jump for sure.
I agree that the slash is awsome.Flys great. Looks just as capable as any Traxxas Truck out there and hope to see lots track time with mine. In the air and pushing past the corners...
so I guess we all agree...The Slash is a great jumper
Im guessing HockyPlaya thinks not so much...
hes only seen vids. theres too many factors main one being driver ability.Originally Posted by Ricky-Bobby

Imo the rustler/bandit/pede are better jumpers off large jumps. But the Slash is in no way a bad jumper and is more geared to jumps you would see at a track.

I love the way the slash jumps. very realistic. if you notice, if you jump into the wind and a gust of wind hits your slash as your are coming down from the jump, it blows the front end up very realistically just like the real CORR trucks react. I love my slash and the way it jumps.
I have seen like 5 slash vids, all jumped well accept for one. So yes, I imagine it is pretty good.
An injured friend is the bitterest of foes
I think it jumps pretty sweet, reminds me of my friends 1/8 nitro buggy
I would agree, just watched the CORR race in Primm Nevada an NBC today. Fun stuff!Originally Posted by fleshgearf150
