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...
looking to upgrade ESC and engine on my slash Ultimate and want to go with Mamba X for ESC but having a hard time figuring out which engine to go for (running on 3s at the moment)
Castle recommended their 1415 engine 2400kv but more than one said I would actually loose power on that...
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?
Hey everyone, I'm new to these forums and Rc's in general so sorry if I don't know what I'm talking about. I just bought a 1/10 Traxxas slash 4x4 off one of my friends. I know it has a castle creations engine in it, but I don't know which one or any information about it. I want to change my...
Introducing my Franken Slash 4x4.
So I decided to put my ERevo roller up for sale or trade and was contacted. I was offered this Slash 4x4 on the trade. Since I have not owned a Slash 4x4 up to this point I went for it.
Here is how it looked when I first received it.
I quickly installed...
Hey y'all, I'm wondering what the best motor for the Tekno SCT410.3 is, I'm selling my slash 4x4 and am planning on building a Tekno SCT410.3 and I was wondering if y'all have motor or esc suggestions for it!
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). So y'all know how you don't want your suspension so hard that it bounces around, and you don't...
Hey, y'all! I was wondering if y'all have any thoughts on me fitting the Losi SCTE steering setup onto a slash 4x4, I'm making another chassis for the slash 4x4 anyway, so I could just make it to fit the Losi front assembly. I'm wondering if y'all have thoughts on it is because I've never seen...
Hey y'all! I'm wondering what gearing I should have for my slash 4x4 on a track. The tracks straightaway is about 33 yards give or take. I have a 3500kv stock motor. the tracks surface is hardpacked clay.
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.
sup y'all! I did a deep clean on my slash 4x4, and got it up running again, fixed various problems, (like the shock oil needing to be replaced). I'm super hyped to get this bask on the road! and running
Hi, y'all! I've been practicing the Slash in my backyard, just doing figure eights with some cones, and I was also searching tips, and I heard people mention pit crews a lot, do I actually need a pit crew to race my Slash? I looked in the rulebook/tips section of the website for the place imma...
Any tips on how to make my Slash 4x4 lighter? I have about 250 grams of extra weight. I use LiPos, have three fans (should I take these off?) and steel Tekno driveshafts. 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...
Sup y'all! Here's the link to the motor I'm looking at, with all the stats, I have no idea what they mean. Is that or the stock Venileon 3500 brushless system better? I'm looking int racing my slash 4x4, I've done enough upgrades that all I need is a good motor. If y'all have any motor or ESC...
Hey y'all! I bought a Jconcepts Illuzion Raptor SVT awhile ago, and I can't find the chart that shows where to drill holes for the body posts anywhere! Including the Internet, Internet you have been defeated! It's always defeated at the wrong time, isn't it? Anyway, what should I do?
Who else is getting ready to be quarantined because of the coronavirus? I'm getting ready by buying parts and shoveling dirt into the house, I realized that the house actually makes a really good course if you have enough dirt. jk lol
Hey y'all! I took the slash out for a drive two days ago and it overheated after about 10 minutes, the temperature was in the 60s (Fahrenheit). I thought this was weird, but set it too cool down (it has an ESC fan btw), and after 30 minutes it still hadn't cooled down. I unplugged the batt and...

Hey, y'all! I've had a bunch of problems with the stock screws on the slash stripping. I started to look for screw sets for it but couldn't find anything that seemed reliable. Any suggestions on which one to buy?
I stripped my (stock) pinion gear, and since I need to get a new one anyway I'm...
