I don't frequent this board and haven't since 2003. But since purchasing a Slash late last year and then another one a couple weeks ago I have been reading a little here. I am seeing "Backslash" a lot. Am I to assume this is an "other than stock" version all souped up?
I have just installed a Venom Pro Brushless system in my second slash. It has what they call the 8.5 motor. (5200kv). I am having a blast with it. Geared at 23/86 I am giddy from the wheelies and speed as compared to the stock Slash. I must say the stock version is PAINFUL to run after running the brushless lipo Slash. I found myself wanting to run along side of the stock slash and kick it along to make it go faster....
Anyway, I would like to hear more about the backslash and what all setups you guys are using. I have a 3S 5000 lipo pack I am wanting to try in it but at this point see no need for it. Besides that the battery hold-down would need modifyed to use the 3S pack. Does someone make an aftermarket hold-down for 3S packs in the Slash?
See this for \Backslash info:
And this for extended battery kit:
Never do anything half fast. Hey Ya'll, watch this
Thanks for the links fellas. I appreciate it. NOt sure I will go in the exact direction as some of those in the links but definitely some useful info. Thanks again.
