    What's Your /4x4's Top Speed?

    Hey guys! I'm just getting back into the R/C game after a month or so, and am considering building another Slash 4x4 solely with speed in mind... I'm very curious to see the what speed most get to before your Slash turns into an stunt plane, and what gearing/motor/ESC was being ran... I'm thinking about either a CC 2200kv or CC 2650kv combo. Thoughts? Thanks!

    Mine's no speed runner just a stockish Slash 4x4...stock body,etc. Running my Kershaw 2700kv(3674 can) with a HW SC8 on 4s geared 20/54 I hit 68 mph using telemetry(so maybe low 60s?) I was using 2.2/3.0 Trenchers on the street by my house. Not a great combination as it did turn into the aforementioned stunt plane......twice..lol! Pretty spectacular crashes...didn't think it would ever stop flipping!! Maybe someday I'll lower it with a good body/tire combo and try it again....that Kershaw is a great little motor. Everyday bashing is with a RC Gearshop 2150kv(4074 can) geared 20/54 on 3s....high 40s low 50s on 3s..perfect for bashing.

    Fastest I hit was around 95-100. Castle MM2 / 2650kv on 6s, lcg chassis, no body, mod 1 tall gearing, rally front bumper with the foam cut to an angle for some downforce. Lowered and stiffened suspension, balanced xo-1 wheels.

    The only way I could get it to not fly away at speed was to not use a body. Granted, I wasn't putting lots of money into it. I was just seeing what I could get with the parts and setup I had on hand.
