    Thank you! I love how it looks! Definitely gave me that 1/8 scale buggy feel out on the track this morning.

    I managed to get about 5-6 clean laps around the track this morning until I had a...

    It finally came in! I grabbed it from the mailbox while on my lunch break today and while I had a few extra minutes I decided to throw it together quickly (hence the tool box pictures :wacko: ) But I...

    My buddy just picked up a set of the Proline Streetfighters and they are great tires. I've driven his truck a few times and they have great traction, but just enough slip in the corners for some fun....

    I like the idea! I fly quads as well as surface vehicles and love fpv. I can definitely see how this would become popular as a new way to race. The only issue I see is the limited number of video...

    I am too! I figured worst case I'll send it in for the "warranty" repair, I think it's ~$60 for them to fix it if I remember correctly. Better than buying a new vxl esc.... But I'll be upgrading the...

    Thank you for the recommendation! I've heard of them, but never really paid any attention. The specs on some of the 2s lipos (7400mah 90C) for ~ $70 is a great deal. I may pick one up to try it out....

    That Fox body looks amazing... Plus with that wheel/tire combo ^_^

    But I've been seriously considering the Revo/T-maxx slipper upgrade as well. Seems like a relatively cheap and safe upgrade that...

    I would recommend either the vxl combo with 3s or even running 2 nimh batteries in series (with the vxl). Unless you want to start spending some serious dough on new or even aluminum diff housings,...

    Thank you for the advice! That's actually really good to know. I noticed when I tried to run 2 2s lipos in parallel the first time I hit the track (terrible idea), the handling was atrocious... it's...

    Oh it definitely is! I am amazed by how much abuse these things can take... Which is great since it seems to spend more time on its lid than on its wheels!

    I'm hoping to get the buggy conversion...

    Monster Backslash 4x4 Build

    I've had this slash for a few months now and have only ever bashed until about a month ago when a few buddies from work (who also have slash 4x4s) and I went to the local track... I'm hooked! I...

    Nice truck! I like the tire/wheel combo with the Amsoil body. As far as battery connectors go, I highly recommend XT-60s. I was using deans on everything and then my LHS talked me into XT-60s....

    I use the 6852X driveshafts currently ("heavy duty" driveshaft, supposedly out of the new rustler 4x4? But don't quote me on that). I put them in almost two months ago and have probably 10-15 packs...

    Here's my in-progress backslash build. Waiting on HR 17mm adapters and the STRC buggy conversion (why the wing isn't mounted). The Proline Calibers are amazing on the track... More to come!

    It very well may have been the lipo cut-off, but it didn't make sense as the cells all read 4.2V. I've had it out at the track twice this week for about a 1-2 hours at a time with no issue. It must...

    VXL esc thermal cut-off right away?

    Hey guys, I didn't see a section in the forums directly related to the Velinion brushless systems so since the issue is with my slash 4x4 I figured this was the safest option. Now onto the real...
