    New 32p setup.

    I put a pretty hefty 32p hearing in my Slash and it really is awesome. 20/50 is what I’m running and it FLIES. I just took out the VXL system last night and put in a Castle Sidewinder setup. Haven’t taken it out to test yet.

    Tire Wear Question

    Hi all, Quick question for ya. I have a Traxxas slash and mainly bash it and was wondering if there will be any negative effects to only replacing the rear tires when they get bald (its rear wheel drive) and leaving the fronts at a little under half tread. Maybe even 1/3 the normal tread depth...

    Slash 2wd diff

    I have had the slash 2wd for 6 years and have never done anything with the diff? Should I do something with it? It is very loose. Should I put a silicone ear plug in? What should I do with the diff? Or do I not need to do anything?

    Weird dual shock mod

    Okay, y'all, so I was bored and was just looking at my slash 4x4 wondering how I could make it better without dumping a bunch of money into it, and I had this idea (which would cost a bunch of money).

    Battery problems?

    Hey y'all! so I took the slash 4x4 out today, and it overheated once again almost immediately. I'm wondering if this is a battery problem because after I ran it yesterday I plugged in the battery and the charger said it was full. The battery is a Floureon 40c 7.4v 6200mAH 2s LiPo.

    Tips for racing please!

It also has the OBA system, which I will remove. I'm thinking about getting a new motor and ESC because the VXL-3s has been...
