    For a 4x4, the gearing should be much lower than a 2wd or an on-road vehicle (much more rotational mass). Since I don't usually play around with the gearing, I am not sure, or not too experienced at...

    Yeah, probably a bit better with the longer wheelbase and lower CG. Perhaps also add some more weight in the front so it does not wheelie (has a tendency to wheelie at high speeds). The drive train...

    It is supposed to come with the lights on the body, and I'm pretty sure the rock lights are not included.

    So many people use the Slash as an on road car platform, and most of the on road wheels and tires use 17mm hexes, which is why there are 17mm hexes (there are also people who want larger wheels).

    There isn't really a way, but you can try wider hexes (but you can only go so wide). For the 2wd, since the front wheels have more offset than the rear, you can change the front arms to the RPM...

    An 4wd is not the most ideal drag car (most are RWD). Having an LCG 2wd slash with Bandit arms is the most popular build (or a Bandit with the Slash LCG chassis).

    The TRX-4 is a solid axle truck, so it does not have camber adjustments like on cars with independent wishbone suspension.

    Foam tires offer better grip, and also wear out less. However, foam tires chunk out easily (chunks of foam may get chipped if it goes on terrain that is too rough for it). The stock tires are the...

    Holmes Hobbies makes good brushed motors (the trailmaster 550 12T would fit your application)

    Edit: I have the 21T on my TRX-4 and it has been doing awesome.

    Depends on the application. If for racing, or rock crawling then yes, a big difference. If for bashing, and high speed driving, no, there will not be much difference.

    Both Castle and Hobbywing are great options. I would go with a sensored system if you have the budget, since it is much smoother, and does not cog at low speeds. If you want something for less, get...

    Metal gears are generally heavier than plastic gears, so there is more rotational mass for the servo motor to move, which slows it down. I have the 2075X in my Slash, and it is noticeably slower than...

    There are no major differences other than size, as far as I can see. The specifications are completely the same, so I assume it's the exact same battery in a different shape.

    I would recommend using polycarbonate spray paint. Other paints work, but do not stick as well, so after some use, you will find some paint chipping off. Tamiya makes some pretty good paint.
