    I'm always amazed at people Slash's on here, how spotless they are. I run mine through the dirt, sands, gravel, grass. I do my best to clean it after runs but some of these (like the one above) look...

    That was it....THANK YOU very much! I think the TSM set at 50% on the pavement was just too much for the slash, just the smallest bumps would cause it sway. Have to check it out later on a lower...

    How to program TSM

    I upgraded my slash a while back to the VXL system, and recently installed a TSM receiver and digital servo, but I seem to be having some TSM issues.

    The first issue is that I can adjust the TSM...

    From a call w/traxxas it looks like the receiver is 'bricked' after the firmware update for whatever reason. A new one shipped out, but it will not be here in time for the weekend for him to use...

    I bought this stock vxl set new a few months ago and it has been running flawlessly. The only thing I did was follow the directions and update the firmware after installing the BT module into the...

    Unfortunately it did not give me an option to read the change logs. It came up and said in order to proceed the firmware needs to be updated. It did not give me an option for 'later' either....

    I appreciate the responses. Wish I knew to plug the holes prior, oh well. They seem to be pretty packed with sand so it look like new stock wheels it is for now. I might make it a project to try to...
  8. Firmware update - controller will not bind

    I bought the BT module to made adjustments to the Slash but am waiting on a new servo. I installed the BT module into the merv controller and it linked it via the app and merv. It immediately came up...

    Do you know if there is a 'brown out' issue as mentioned with the traxxas system with TSM with that servo / set up?

    So is higher torque preferred over higher speed? If I did not go with the Savox which of the Traxxas ones would you recommend?
  12. Steering Servo Upgrade Question - 2075X or 2075R

    I am looking at going with either the 2075X or the 2075R - is there a consensus on which is better?

    The X is the High Torque and the R is the High Speed.

    This will be going on a VXL 4x4 Slash...

    Going from a 1/16 to a 1/10 3s is a huge jump! I tossed a 3s into mine just for fun and it is 'too fast' to run unless you really have a dedicated and safe space for it. I would say drop to a 2s and...

    Thank you for the quick answers! I brought them to work with me today and will cut them here - leave myself some extra and trim them again if needed. The Slash is looking great so far, can't wait to...
  25. Pro-Line Extended Body Mounts - Too long in the rear

    I ordered the extended mounts from pro-line - they come with the 2 different height pairs, and I am not really sure why they include the long ones. I have the rustler tires on the slash and the short...
