    And now that I'd had a practice run it was time to do mine!

    I took some inspiration from the amazing Hemistorm. I was using the burnt orange, metallic blue and dark metallic blue. Silver and gun...
  6. Painted my first body shell with my daughter. Great fun!

    Hello,
    My Slash 4x4 body is finally toast so I was looking at getting a replacement. After originally discounting the idea of getting an unpainted one I decided that actually it would make a great...

  11. Is it OK to run 2s Lipo on stock Slash 4x4?

    Hi there,

    I have had my brushless Slash 4x4 (my first RC) for about 30 years and I love it. Kids all have Stampedes and we're just bashing on grass and dirt tracks. I've upgraded things as and...

    Thanks for the reply.

    Looking at the manual, my stock gearing is 13/54? so a 13 Tooth pinion.

    Thanks, what's the reason for gong for rears all round, I thought you were meant to have the L and the XXL versions?

    And when you say "12mm or 13mm shocks" what do you mean? I'm fairly new to RC....

    I bent my first shock shaft at the weekend. My Slash went airborne and thumped into a tree! The body was flattened and my shaft was bent. i managed to get it off and bend it back but it was causing...

    Thanks for the welcome, loving it so far! Always wanted an RC car when i was a kid but we didn't have much money. I know they were expensive Christmas presents for the kids but we've had so much fun...

    I think you might be right. I pulled off the front assembly and took out the bit that holds the spur gear - is that whole unit called the slipper clutch?

    I wouldn't have known there was meant to...
  20. Really slow acceleration and smoke coming out of transmission! What do i have to fix?

    Hi guys,
