Had a good day of pond skipping, but its time to clean up now
Lots of cleaning to do... Lol
"enjoy your ride"
Bought proline badlands 2.2/3.0 and put them on prolines 2.2/3.0 split 6 bead lock rims. Got a package of those washers that install on the axles to try and reduce the play in the wheels.
Snapped a rear axel hub
Got my slash out in the dirt with the badlands and trenchers yesterday, was so awesome, had lots of fun plus I got rear proline power shocks today and will be getting front proline power shocks when they come in at the end of the week.
Got a Fujifilm camera to strap to the slash, I'll try uploading some FPV stuff into the main video thread soon. It's currently attached directly to the hood of the body so it's a bit shaky, I'll need to CNC a camera mount bracket for it. Would be fun to set it up so it can go under the body
installed Hot Racing slash LCG aluminum bulkhead. didnt like the RPM bulkhead that i got and used once it didnt hold up very well for me.
will see how i like the aluminum one.
about to punch the trigger on some proline 2.8 trenchers and a DRAGONSLAYER heatsink & fan combo.
maybe will order this tomorrow.
Put an extra shim on all axles to reduce the play. Got front proline powerstroke shocks today and will put one 40 or 50 weight oil in them and install them tomorrow. Will be getting the front/rear spri g set for the shocks too so I can play around with spring rates.
Hot Racing bulk head (didnt like the RPM one i got prior to this)
and DRAGONSLAYER fan and heat sink. this thing is huge.
cant wait to get this on.
Took it for a run and now time to clean it
| Slash 4x4 | Stampede 4x4 | E-Revo BL | RPM |
got a set of proline powerstroke springs for front and rear shocks so hope it helps with tuning them plus had to remove a stubborn motor mount screw and replace it
Just put on another stock drive shaft untill I get the upgrades. Ran hard at the track with other people and love it, forgot the cam for videos, lots of awesome jumps and runs, speed keeps increasing, practice makes perfect.

Installed new motor and finished new body
Slash 4x4 & E-revo brushless
Was it an HCG before the run ???
Summit RX8/1550kv-Slash4x4 MM2/2400kv Twin-V Merv.
got a new servo installed last night. water proofed it with some grey automotive silicone. (tuff stuff) took it apart and using a few tooth picks i apllied it around the edges were the gasket goes, then snapped it together and tightened down the screws topped it off with about 5 coats of rattle can plasti-dip black
ordered a new charger since i got my 4s 6600mah 60c and my old charger only charges up to 3s.
so i got the dynamite Passport ultra duo. very excited for that.
and after work today will get me stiffer springs for the GTR shocks. since my slash has been putting on some weight
should be a very fun 4th of july weekend bashing
Well, last night I was showing off for my 5 year old and went full throttle on a 3S lipo in to the curb after losing control. Pretty much whole left front suspension is destroyed. Lol
This weekend it is going to get some much needed repair, cleaning and lube
Got Decals Put On !!!
Slash 4x4 - 2.8 Trenchers
I changed the oil in all four of my shocks and gave my truck a good cleanin'
looks sick !!!
Pics to follow. But here is the list of things ordered and/or installed
Proline Power Stroke shocks
Proline Power Stroke shock spring assortment
RPM shock protectors
Stainless steel hardware throughout
Proline Toyota Tundra body (Silver, Black, Pink paint scheme)
Proline blockade tires (M2) and Proline wheels
Proline sling shot paddles and Mohawk tires

Traxxas front and rear shock towers
Traxxas diff housings and new Differnetials
Traxxas center diff

I think that is it for now. Need to test and tune with shock oils and diff oils at the track. Still need to paint truck body. Waiting on Boca Bearings to arrive. Soon as I get some pics I will post up. Unfortunately I didn't think to take before pics, but I will have some nice after pics!
Put a couple packs on the new XO-1 rubber, these are nice, the more it ran the better they grip, not unlike 1:1 race slicks.
Buying Hot Racing caster blocks, front and rear carriers tomorrow.
I can't believe the hobby lhs in my new down carries the stuff.
Almost forgot, an HR roll bar as well, have to wait a bit on it, their out of stock.

Cleaning up the slash and opening to see a play in rear diff, if I have enough time , will install my MIP xduty cvds too.

Installed a Hot Racing bulk head.
I know you didn't recommend it friend (dont want to mention any names), but they had to order my front caster blocks as well as front/rear bearing carriers.
I just couldn't go all day without upgrading something.
The truck is basically a shelf queen so what the heck.
Built Ford Tuff With Chevy Stuff.
just put a few upgrades on RPM arms all the way around along with MIP axles all around. I also put a monster 2 on there that i was originally going to put on my revo build. Reinforced shocks with revo springs RPM rear bumper (haven't put it all together so i can fit a new body on it) and i ended up cutting 2 slots in my chassis so that i could feed velcro straps through to hold down the batteries. Currently runnin 2 2s 4000mah lipos and it is stupid fast 18t pinion with stock spur (54t or 56t somehwere in there) proline beadlocks with the strc rings and badlands sc tires. plus i have a bunch of integy parts on the way for my other 4x4 build and some proline body caps and post
Wanted to get an interesting thread back to the top...
I got my Sweeps yesterday and my xo1 aero pieces the day before.
Unfortunately, we haven't touched our Slashes, Stampedes or Rally in weeks. I guess I should check the Slashes, I can't remember if either one of us broke anything the last time we were out.
Two Stampede 4x4's and Two Slash 4x4's
Let it collect dust...
I need batteries!
Creativity is intelligence having fun. -Einstein
Why don't we use this anymore? I busted a shock cap and oil went everywhere. Mustve broken it off a sweet jump at a friends house. I lost the diaphragm so I ordered more.
Let's start it back up!
I ran a full 8200 mah battery through my Slash 4x4 at a skate park, nothing broke other than I ripped a shock screw clean out of the front RPM A-arm. Had a blast!
My life is busy, but I'm still lurking! 24 RC's
Oh man...thread revival! Well i build a dirt jump and a small oval track for my son and his slash ultimate
I ran a 7200mah 3s pack with a friend at the school near our house. They have a small paved bike track. A few nice spots on it to catch some air. Had a blast even though it was really windy and cold.
