    Well, the Slash isn't exactly a 'crawler'...it's not designed to be "high". Initially, I did with one of Rustlers (using 'rear' GTRs) what you did with your Slash. As soon as I realized how high it...

    If you've using the stock "Ultra" shocks with the stock plastic caps, the problem probably wasn't the amount of oil. The problem is the plastic shock caps. Low-cost food is to replace the plastic...

    Don't think so. The spur on the slipper uses a 3-bolt, while the center diff uses a 4-bolt. Last I checked, "squares" and "triangles" don't work well together. If you're bashing, you'll probably...
