Bought my son the Slash ultimate this year (the non-lipo) version.
Got an onyx 235 charger and 2c venom lipo.
Everything is stock and my son and I are having a blast running the car.
Heck his first time doing some laps at the local indoor track were not fast but not bad for a kid who is used to toys r us brand cars/trucks.
The racers at the track are telling me that you won't win with a slash but you can put more money into it to stay competitive.
I am not one of those guys that will show up with power supplies, 4 cars/trucks, etc.
But to just go out and race, I figured some Pro-line ION tires (again carpet racing) and a transponder.
Is the slash better at bashing then racing?
Last RC I owned was the Tamiya Frog 25 yrs ago
Thanks for any advice.
I will link to a video of my son's first laps on the short course soon!
