    I wanna go faster!

    My Slayer runs great, but I want to go faster! Much faster! I actually want it to be so fast it's out of control. I just want a list or maybe a couple of links to stuff that can help me get an idea of what I can do. I don't have any kind of a budget, so I want to make my Slayer FLY. I currently have sway bars, double black springs (front), double purple springs (rear), and a fail safe.

    Anything at all would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    You could add a RB Innovations Supercharger and Nitrous kit if you want, that might make it a little faster! Heres a link to there website:

    ^^^^ Those are junk and I would never suggest using one unless you want to roast a perfectly good motor. Plus they are a PITA to tune and fool with. If you don't believe me look up a guy on youtube named Squirrelodd I think it is, he did a review on them and burnt up a motor within like 5 tanks just to prove the point they truely are crap.

    If you want quick fast bolt on power, get a BUKU pipe, they say they make the 3.3 fly like a bat out of (you know where). You should easily see wheelies and stupid fast acceleration and top end. They are one of the best power boosting pipes money can buy and you don't run the risk of burning up your motor.

    another route would be a brushless conversion... I have a Mamba Monster with the Neu 2200kv motor with a 4s lipo and its faster and more powerful then stock... and this set up allows the use of a 6s lipo which would be insane with speeds over 60mph and enough power to flip your truck backwards with ease...

    the only down side is the cost

    Why would I go brushless? The reason I want my Slayer to go faster is cause I like the nitro! I considered a supercharger and a nitrous kit but decided not to cause I figured it would kill my motor. Any links to the BUKU pipes? I'm thinking a better pipe and a TRX Big Block Kit. Anything else I should get that would help?

    Thanks for all the help!

    That's it! That's what I'm going to do. I'm going to stick with the traxxas 3.3 just incase it blows up, I'll get a new one for cheap.

    The Buku is a great pipe. I have on eon my revo and it makes a noticable difference. Dave (the owner) is great, too, if you have any questions or problems.

    Good to know, thanks! What is the noise difference between the BUKU and the TRX pipe?

    The Buku has a nice lower tone to it. Definitely not the high pitched whine of the Resonator. I'd sell you mine but I won't see getting rid of it anytime soon.
    I found the Buku gives you some serious bottom end (enough to flip it on it's lid...with a wing...I am not kidding). You should be able to bump your clutchbell up a tooth or 2 with it (or maybe more???). Right now I am running a THS on my one Revo but will be installing the Buku on my ERCM modded 3.3 soon, gear up some, and see what happens.

    If you want it to be uncontrollable and keep nitro, you need to get a strong
    .28 like a OS .28XZ Drag modified by ABmods.

    Thats the strongest nitro engine you can get, strongest ive tried too, and its ridiculously powerful! imagine your 3.3 with the buku, the modified OS28 is more than 2 times powerful...

    But you have to pay to play in this case...

    Right now money isn't an issue for me. I have been considering getting a much larger nitro motor, but jetski freestyle is much more important to me right now. When world finals is over, then I'll start buying a bunch of stuff for my slayer. I'm just getting an idea of what I need until then.

    I dont recommend anything
    He asked what is the strongest engine, to make his slayer uncontrollable.
    The buku pipe is not gonna make his slayer out of control...

    I also said you have to pay to play.. lol

    i dont recommend doing this at all, its asking for trouble, too much power
    and he will bend the chassis.

    It happened in the past i advised people to keep a conservative install or things like that, but then some stated , "if that guy want to try it, why not help him instead of telling him it will not work??"

    im sure you seen that kind of thread

    Personaly i would run a modified .18TZ, its light, its small, run good, its fast, it have good runtime, its easy to tune.

    I would suggest use a picco .26 max that I happen to have for sale
    and also use a smaller spur and bigger clutch for speed.

    like stated above the 18tz will be just enough. i put a tz in my slayer and it stupid fast. I was having issues popping the driveshafts e-clips and the rear turnbuckles out with the stock tz. if you get a bigger motor you will spend double the money and the time fixing it. Sice money isnt an issue, i'd suggest running the bump start to make it lightweight and free up the motor from all that stuff draging it. my ofna box work good with the revo and slayer. i was able to turn on the slayer with the stock small flywheel instead of the bigger one for the revo. You can get the tz for 140 from tower and if you want more power send it to adam and get it mod it. good luck with it and let us know what you did and how it runs

    How long did you wait before posting here? Did you search there? People come here to talk Slayers, not Summits. So your best bet is the Summit forum or looking through the E-Revo forums.
