    Revo 3.3 4th tank and won’t run

    Hi let me say thanks in advance. I just bought the truck and was breaking it in when it stalled on the end of the fourth tank. I tried adjusting and had no luck as soon as you give it throttle it stalls. I replaced the plug reset back to factory settings and I can’t maintain it. What I did...

    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). So y'all know how you don't want your suspension so hard that it bounces around, and you don't...

    Motor upgrade!

    Hey, y'all! I looking into upgrading my Venileon 3500brushless, is there any motor that y'all would suggest? I would want it to be a 540 or 550 base, and I would also like to not break the bank!

    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.

    Pit Crew required? If so who?

    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...

    Tips for racing please!

    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...

    Setting up my Slash 4x4 to race. Which motor should I buy?

    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?

    Slash 4x4 over heated after long hard drive down the driveway, again 🙄

    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...

    Looking for screw set for Slash 4x4, and wondering what spur/pinion combination I should use.

    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...

    Traxxas Slash overheating or not?

    I have the Traxxas slash 4x4, and recently it has been overheating very quickly which automatically stops the throttle from doing anything, which is great, except I took it out today for the first time awhile and it overheated so quickly (about a minute) I thought something was up (and it was...
