    Sorry that was a typo, you want the Losi 2.5" buggy springs in the rear.

    Here's a list of the springs. I've never tried using softer than Green at the front or Orange at the rear.

    FRONT BUGGY...

    I disagree. I would say the Big Bores are a truly excellent shock for racing, provided the truck is no heavier than the weight of a 2WD Slash.

    Before I raced my LCG Slash with the BBs, I raced it...

    As a rule, all other things being equal, a higher spring rate requires more damping. This can be achieved through thicker oil or fewer (or smaller holes) in the shock pistons.

    I've run the Big Bores on my Protrac LCG race Slash for about 7 years.

    After much experimentation I ended up running with Losi Black 2" springs with 35wt AE oil up front and Losi Blue 2" springs...

    Just to answer the OP's original question, you can go as low as an 8T pinion with the stock 90T spur.

    Due to the range of movement in the motor mount the sum total of the teeth of the pinion and...

    Part #2517 was a fibreglass rear SRT shock tower but it's also flat so won't fit. The SRT had a different rear chassis/gearbox design. Flat CF rear shock towers for the Slash all use aluminium mounts...

    If you want to eliminate front shock tower flex then you need to check out the (virtually rigid) Traxxas SRT fibreglass tower part #2518. It's one of the best tuning mods I've ever made plus it's...

    Either method works on its own. If you have a programming card then use that as it's quicker and easier.

    Glitch busters have absolutely nothing to do with your problem.

    The behaviour you're describing sounds exactly what would happen if the Low Voltage Cut-off protection is not properly disabled. I...

    There is simply no justifiable reason to run brushed motors these days, not even cost.

    Rustler tires are too wide to tuck under the Slash's wheel arches when the suspension compresses so maybe it's the smell of burning tire rubber due to rubbing on the body.

    It fit will any model that has a VXL-3S mounting plate as it has the same mounting screw pattern, unless they've changed the design since I bought mine. If the Stampede and Rustler are not VXL...

    No, the drivetrain should be fine as it's all-metal and brushless ready. That system should work fine but 4000KV is a bit high for me for a non-race truck, especially if you're not running LiPo, so...

    These Integy spring sets fit perfectly and are (surprisingly) very high quality. One warning - they are seriously stiff so no good for off-road racing. You certainly won't want any stiffer. In fact,...

    1952X - Aluminium only I'm afraid so you'll need to get your wallet out.

    The Traxxas 4-Tec rear carriers (#4352) might be a better option for you. I remember the Jang over at URC using them on his...

    The stock rear 4x4 hubs (#1952) have zero toe-in. The optional 4x4 ones have 1.5 so in theory these could be used to increase it to 4.5 but IMO that's too much. Another problem with this, although...

    Yes, that would do it but you would then have a track width problem due to the 4x4 arms being about 10mm longer than the 2WD ones. The only way to equalise it would be to use rims with about 10mm...

    You think wrong I'm afraid, although they actually have 3 of toe-in (not 2.5 as I said previously - that's the Slash 4x4), exactly the same toe-in as the Protrac kit's rear arms. The stock 2WD...

    Some really good points here.

    Many bashers favour thicker oil to create more "pack" behind the shock pistons on compression that helps reduce the suspension bottoming out on big jumps. Personally...

    You may not know but the brushless Rustler VXL runs 25/83 stock (out of the box) and that's with a higher 3500KV motor. Therefore, unless you're running on highly resistant off-road terrain, you...
