Honestly, I would leave it just as it is. As for tires, I love the stockers. But it those don't tickle your fancy, go with some 2.2dirt hawgs or somthing like that.

well i guess once all this snow melts ill see how i like the stockers.. I've only tried them out side once and the roads were so frozen it just would just sit and spin. i thought about drilling some little screws in the nobs to make ice tires.. but besides that i shouldnt change the chassis?

yep, leave it stock for now. out of the box the truck is pretty tough. if you feel the need to spend money, look into maybe getting a better steering post set up.

Here is something if you are interested. It would keep a majority of the dirt from collecting in your slash. I personaly think the Slash Chassis is the best part of the truck. This is a hop up for those who want the bling or hard core racers.
I could only find this at RCPlanet at the moment. Not sure if there are any other locations selling them. Honestly I don't know anyone who has one of these yet but it looks like it would snap at the first high jump you do on a hard surface.

the only thing chassis wise that I have upgraded are the plastics with RPM parts. shock tower, arms, castors, hub carriers, and steering blocks. I think that the upgraded RPM parts make it a bit stronger and I have yet to break an RPM part. The aluminum chassis seems like it would add too much weight.
