    I believe I have the Model Setup correct in my app, but my speed reading from the sensor on the spur gear is WAY higher than my actual which was measured by GPS. We're not talking 3 or 5MPH either,...

    So, I guess I am pretty rough on my Slash 4X4. Here is what the shell looks like after just 3 weeks.

    I've been running on the street in front of my house. My tires are really starting to show wear from the pavement. It's a poured concrete slab construction street, smooth rounded curbs.

    I have the Traxxas Link installed and the Speed reported in the App is WAY off. My app reports over 75 MPH, while I am only hitting about 50 on the GPS (running out of room.) I trust the GPS.

    2S LiPo and stock gearing, you should be right around 30 MPH.
    2S LiPo using the 18T pinion that comes with the Slash should get you about 40 MPH.

    I am on a mission to hit 60 MPH, so far I am...

    Okay, after another test run yesterday (this time on 3S LiPo) I am seeing 76 in the Traxxas Link app, and 50 on the GPS I strapped into the Slash.

    What could account for such a HUGE discrepancy?...

    No laser temp gun, but I do have the Traxxas Telemetry installed so I can monitor the temperature that way. On my 2S it takes a while to get above 150, I am guessing 3S will be a little warmer.

    60+ mph?

    Currently I am running the 18T pinion and 54T spur in my Slash with a 2S LiPo. According to Traxxas that should be good for 40+ MPH, but I am only seeing a max of 39.6 on GPS (and 46 with the TLink...

    Looks great! How did the larger tires change how it ran temperature and speed wise? Did you drop a couple teeth in your pinion to make up for the larger tires?

    It's my first and only hobby grade RC. Why did I pick the Slash? I guess because it seems good for bashing around and isn't a monster truck.

    Speed seems pretty inaccurate.

    And people think RC is expensive. You can buy a new Traxxas M41 for about what it would cost to run a real one for about an hour.

    1:10 scale Land Rover Defender 110 SHOULD have a wheelbase of 11.0 inches. Then again, I haven't found too many things in the RC world that are actually built to scale.
