Traxxas Slash 2WD

Slash, the OG! Got it as my first Hobby Grade RC when I was 7 in 2015. Mike Jenkins 47 OBA edition. Now is fully upgraded (to my extent) street basher, offroad basher, track basher, racer, you name it!

Additional Information

Challenges Faced
Main issues, don't get me wrong, Traxxas cars are good out of the box, but if you #sendit like me, you might need to do some upgrades to get it durable enough. Screws like to back out alot, so use loctite on metal parts, or use a longer screw/nut to hold all those screws in place!
