    Rally upgrades are AMAZING... video inside.

    So I finally ran my Rally with the sway bars and centre diff. Power system is an MMP/3800 on 2S and as you can see, its plenty fast but stays only warm to the touch. Full 5400mah 2S packs at mostly WOT drifting WITH the chassis cover on and nearly no heat at all. Maybe ill gear up a bit. Speed is fine now, so its not a big deal.

    Ive got a Dusty Motors shroud for the non LCG slash installed and it did a better job of keeping the dirt out than having NO shroud. But it certainly is NOT working as well as id hoped. Im going to get the proper LCG version for sure.

    Tires are stock rally tires and I have to say, I LOVE them. They are such a great tire. The only drawback is their lifespan on dry pavement. On this surface, pavement with alot of sand and gravel on top, they dont show even a hint of wear after a few full packs.

    Only issue I have come across with this car is that, when run in gravel like this, small rocks can get caught in the steering and jam it up. A quick flick of the steering will dislodge it so its not a huge deal, but it was interesting to note.

    Heres a short video and some pics.

    This is the dusty motors cover for the NON LCG slash 4X4 so the nerf bar slots dont line up right. They have a new one for th e LCG chassis that will seal much better and likely keep alot more dirt out.

    The center diff was incredible for my slash 4x4. I totally love what it does for handling on dirt...

    Wow, the amount of silt and small gravel that got into the chassis is nasty. Thank goodness for air compressors.

    Trying to drop the CG more with added weight??? LOL The DM LCG shroud helped way better than the non LCG one. The Outerwears did ok, but not very well. I mean it wasnt for the LCG so it did an ok job, better than none. I still end up getting some small rocks and dirt in there. It's not because of the shroud has to be from the other open areas like the center shaft and Servo. Maybe filling those voids would stop some of that smaller stuff getting in there. Who knows. Once the weather gets better and the Texas dry dusty weather kicks in i'll know for sure. But then again since I said they we will probably have a Monsoon of a summer. haha

    Yeah Pave I punned ya with the LCG shroud. LOL Not sure if you seen the thread or not.

    I just ordered the proper dusty motors shroud. I don t know if they lowered their prices or something but this one only cost me $30 shipped. The last one cost $40 shipped. That was a nice surprise.
