whats the highest top speed anyone has gotten the slash up to with the vxl system?
RustyVXL, HPI RS4 Rally, RC18MT
"Take Off" speed. LOL! Just kidding. Dont have brushless.
I have gotten up to 54mph. It was recorded on a police radar.
I've been 48mph then it did it's airplane impression. The body acts like a big wing.
Reba Collins 6/30/52 - 3/1/10 1:13pm
54.8 with the body on, and a heavy gps straped to the front bumper.
I did shread a rear tire on that run, and mess up my gps screen in a roll over.

I've had mine up to 40-45 but I'm not gearing for speed.
it doesnt seem like mine hits 55mph. just installed it a few days ago. It wont wheelie upon take off. I tightened the slipper a bit but i dont want to go overboard on it

I believe im running 23/86 with the stock 3000 mah 7-cell it came with. Im also using Rustler wheels/tires if it makes a difference.Originally Posted by hende
are you runninf the vxl or xl5 set up .. and it wont weelie with out lipo
im running vxl. I dont have lipo and im too noob to try + $$$ + risk of explosions. should i change gearing?
47 MPH verified with GPS Speedometer; 3S Lipo, VXL - not 100% on the gearing
Slash 2wd/ 2wd Mod / 4x4
you can get a good solid lipo and harger for $50 and lipos don't explode they burn and to make it happen you almost have to do it on purpose or be a omplete retard.Originally Posted by Slash240
Wrong it will.Originally Posted by hende
My sons VXL on a Onix3000mah will all day long.
My Slash has done about 75. In my trunk. On the freeway.
Roll cages are RC training wheels
Fastest I have ever gotten on a vxl with a 2s lipo, geared 23/86, was about 45MPH.

Nice! In that case though, my slash has broken most of sunnyhoutx(sp?)'s speed records with the rustler.Originally Posted by 3_rolls

That is pretty darn fast. I don't know if mine would stay on its wheels at that speed.Originally Posted by Lordsilas
With an 11 turn, hand wound brushed motor, a matched 6-cell EnerG4600 packs and 23/86 gearing, I recorded 43.1 mph with a basically stock Slash. I tried gearing higher but like many other people experience, the truck kept blowing over. But granted, these speed are no where near the 60+ that some are getting out of 3S LiPo.
