    Well, finally got to run the 1/10 slash last weekend. Runs surprisingly well on a carpet track. I thought it would be too big and cumbersome for the track but it actually fits in very well. Just a...

    Got a chance to take them all out just yesterday. I was actually quite surprised.

    I took the rustler out first, saving the slash 4wd for last, and was surprised at how fun that thing is. I'm not...

    Dialing in for Carpet racing

    Hello all, new to this part of the forums and relatively new to the hobby.

    I've been running a 1/16 slash and had it set up to run well at a local carpet track. I just recently picked up some 1/10...

    Had another couple runs at the carpet track over the weekend. Was able to get the mini slash around the track quite quick and consistent. This is a track where the pros run high 20s, most run low 30s...

    Took the mini slash out for some runs in a construction area. Bash about, hit a few jumps and speed runs. The pair of 2s Lipos in parallel managed 35mph with the cell phone taped to the top of the...

    All back together again with the new diff.
    As the new bulkheads came with another set of rockers, I modified a pair of fronts for shorter travel and placed it in the rear. Just like I had done...

    I've noticed since putting the fan on the motor, the ESC is definitely running a little cooler too. Less heat, less resistance, less load.

    An alloy case fan would work well on the ESC. If you're...

    Yeah, I am quite happy I ended up with a 1/16 so I can use it on track without bothering too much the buggy guys running practice laps. I think when it comes to RC, it's best to buy something suited...

    Got a good run in on Friday but by the end of the hour or so the rear diff was slipping.
    I am guessing this is from a combination of wear to the gears, wear to the bearings and hard bashes all...

    That is exactly what I did too. Just so that when it bottoms out, the spring is almost fully compressed but still has room to go. That extra room prevents the springs from just slamming together,...

    More updates:

    Was messing about with the rocker arms today and trialed a few different things. First of all, the front rockers have a much longer arm than the rears, I guess this is so the front...

    Forgot to mention above, for those who are curious, the weight difference.
    The Ally axle carriers and caps are twice as heavy as the stock - 4g stock vs 8g Aluminium per each - not as bad as I was...

    Just installed the replacement axle carriers on the rear. They fit great, look great and have tightened up all the looseness. They seem like some pretty good parts but only drive time will tell how...

    The higher - 35C in this case - will accelerate faster. I am not sure about top speed. I would think a better top speed too as it could sustain higher current. This is on paper and theoretical of...

    As far as shock dampening goes, I'll look into the rock arms before anything else. I think it'll just keep popping the caps for now. I started seeing the P1,2,3 and long travel rockers available. I...

    The mah shows the capacity of the battery, how much juice it has, generally determining the run times.
    The 20C 35C etc is the max discharge rate, weather it be burst (short time) or continuous.This...

    Thanks for the input!

    As far as diff fluids go, I think I will leave it as it is for now. There's so much grip on the carpet track that wheel spin is virtually non existent unless you really try...

    Hello all, figured I would make a thread to contain all the changes I make to my slash and have one place to contain all my ideas and trials etc. Also a good place to maintain all my modifications...

    As far as battery times go, I have a pair of 1500mah 2s batteries that running in my 1/16. You could maybe squeeze something slightly bigger, closer to 2000mah depending on the design of the battery...

    Yes, those Ovonics are the ones I bought. Have only run them once so far (both in parallel) and was very pleased with the punch, power and duration of run time. The 2s 50C seemed to give the same...

    I picked up a used 1/16 Slash vxl a couple months back after getting bored staying home. Messed around a bit in the dirt but that got...

    As others have mentioned, you want more travel which will come from longer shocks with longer and softer springs.
    Keep in mind that you're using a Slash and that in the video - I believe - is a UDR...
