I just got my used slash off ebay. Stuck a 3300mah 7 cell pack only charged to 1100mah (got impatient and wanted to try the truck before I go to bed) and took it out to the parking lot. This truck is fast. I'm impressed. This seems close to my brushless rustler speed. I can't imagine this with a crazy brushless system. A guy the steps of an adjacent apartment actually came down to comment on how fast the truck is. I am super impressed.
