About 4 months ago I bought a used hpi e10 drift car since that's the type of 1:1 cars I am into... A month later a friend traded me his slash for a camera...
3 months in, I am fully addicted to this Slash and don't care for anything else rc related. lol.
Its a 2wd VXL Velineon Slash
Pre Lipo battery, life was okay.
Then I wanted a old school look, did not really care if the wheel base was not exact..
Broke a few parts here and there, started buying rpm replacements, actually it has been about every run I break parts..
Once I bought a 3s lipo, wow it was like waking the beast up! That vxl3s and 3500kv velineon were sick as **** to run!
Pop wheelies, no prob. Change pinion gear to go faster, no prob.
Two months in... Velineon siezed, bought the rebuild kit... Put everthing back together, come to find out the VXL-3s ESC burnt. So out with the old which I will be sending to traxxas to get fixed.
Last week, In with the NEW- Mamba Max Pro SCT with the 3800kv..
and a few other parts like the integy roll cage, some proline rear shocks and springs for the front, YES for the front!
I wanted a wider stanced baja look so I went Jato front arms and aluminum caster blocks, few mods and cutting and the arms went in correctly (i didn't want to install them reversed. I wanted left on left and right on right).
And last night started cutting my new body up.. Ford raptor
Thats about it for now...
Wanted to thank this community!!! I have been learning as I go and when I get stumped I just come on here and search... so Thank you guys!
nice little potted history there and some great pics, and videos?
Addicted is the perfect word.
I was complaining about buying a $400 barbeque,but cant seem to go to the lhs for a $5 part,and not walk out with $400 in parts,and forgot the $5 part I went for,LOL.
Maybe it's my subconscious giving me a reason to go back
Built Ford Tuff With Chevy Stuff.
Nice pics and write up. As much as I like the Raptor that Blazer body looks awesome on there.
Thank you for sharing your addiction with us!
looks like its just a little tight in the rear shock department looks as if its getting all its movement from the rears tires for bounce other then that i like the hill climbs
Anza Slash & a pile of Parts
Nice mod you made on the Jato front. Did you use Jato turnbuckles?
My Black & Blue Rally is faster than your color...
Great looking truck!
Our lhs is about 65 miles away... So Amain has gotten a lot of my money. They are great folks to deal with.
If I had 2 that close I'd be broke, and my wife would kill me. lol

Bought and painted my Baja Bug body on saturday...
Added front E Revo threaded shocks
Lookin good Milt, I recently unknowingly attempted a cobalt he pearl paint job lets just say not so happy with the results.
That sucks, did you back it up with silver?
Love that Blazer body!!
You mentioned you regeared after getting the 3s. What gearing are you running?
The Baja Bug body is one of my favorites. Nice paint job.
What tires are those on the front?

So had to upgrade the tranny case, a bearing seized inside causing it to overheat and burn the plastic.
So transmission is still giving me problems..
First off it was slipping while on load, wasnt the input shaft's roll pin, but I added another washer in between that and it stopped slipping.
Now my problem is that the shaft and spur keep overheating and I have checked and replaced every bearing inside the tranny case, cannot figure out why its over heating.
I also tightened the spur all the way then backed it up a turn and a quarter. So I don't know if thats too loose.
What did you use to extend the front?
Slash 2wd Vxl, ERBE; Crash N Learn
Finally picked up some sand paddles...
So new wheels are on.
