    Because the tires can touch the body when they compress enough, many people put duct tape, gorrilla tape, or aluminum tape there to prevent the paint from being rubbed off.

    As explained to me at the Traxxas retail store, the "balance leads" are built into the TRX ID plug, but in addition to allowing for charging in a balanced way, it has a proprietary microchip in there...

    Outerwears is best IMO. I have it and it is a better material than the dusty motors shroud and doesn't look like a cloth draped over the top either. Fits nice and snug and even has room in the...

    So I had the velineon ESC fan and on 3s for sessions where I used the whole battery pack, it would overheat. Given my truck is mostly stock in regards to the items that would affect that - I felt I...

    I'd buy an ultimate slash kit - would allow me to start it off how I'd want it instead of taking it apart when I take it out of the box.

    Gotcha. The vxl-8s is pretty solid of an ESC now, but it of course doesn't have extra features either. The point about selling it with the intact connectors makes a lot of sense.

    I have always been a fan of Yeah Racing fans myself - find out what size you need and pick one out accordingly.

    That's my hope - that it works as a BEC does. Still no limits are given, so it makes me wary. Maybe I'll call traxxas support.

    As a side note, I like how they built the new power tap adapter. ...

    Does the new version of the 7185a lighting kit work with 3s Lipo or is...

    I would disagree and say that it was designed around 3s. Depending on which Slash 4x4 model you purchased will also vary how durable yours will be at more power.

    Yeah you can put rear shock tower on the front of any slash. You have to modify the tower slightly to fit, but you can do it fairly easily. You do need rear shocks to put on the front.
