So here it is! The thread that tells it all! Let's see the pics and hear the stories that have taken out your new Slash 4x4! Is it as tough as the proven 2x4? Time will tell! I know mine can take a hit and keep on bashing!
The worst so far on mine. Road sign at 50mph+ (full throttle on 4s at 19/54 gearing running a MMM/Neu 1509 combo):
Rear A Arm, bent rim, tire unglued, side bumper broke, body cracked and paint removed from inside and out:
tore the axle clean out and cracked the steering knuckle.
all at a very slow speed
Ride it hard ride it fast.
brushed the curb at night. barely touched the curb, at first i didnt even think i had hit it.
Well, I twisted my front diff output shaft clean off while running on 4s and cartwheeling. Not to mention pulling off a motor wire from the bullet connector. That was my bad. I knew when I installed it, it wasn't as secure as it should be. Off to the LHS!
i hit a patch of sand in the street running 18/54 top speed on 3s, slewed right and drilled a curb corner dead on @ about 60. it launched the car about 12 feet straight up. broke:
1 shock body and shaft
2 rpm a arms
1 diff housing
1 sway bar link
1 steering bellcrank assy
1 6888 drive hub
1 camber link
1 steering servo
not bad for a single crash, it looked AWESOME. also gaev me an excuse to strip it all down for a rebuild. i actually had every part on hand except the 6888

Careful what you post. Slash Protective Services will come looking for you and put your Slash in my protective custody! My only real problem so far has been the neighbor's garbage can. Ran into it full throttle the morning after I took it out of the box and broke a front arm. Luckily had a rustler spare on hand. Should be a law against having garbage cans next to the street on a non-garbage pick up day!
lol garbage can are real big threat to r/c .lol.. and i have a rustler they are great to keep your slash going arnt they lol..Originally Posted by Jato40
