    Slash 4x4 Platinum Edition

    I must have been real lucky to find a Slash Platinum Edition yesterday. I did have to do some looking and found one in PA at a store called Endless Sports. They shipped it to me for $389.00 which I received today. I have never been a fan of Traxxas but they have come a long way and really did there homework on the Slash 4x4 Platinum. Has anyone found any weak points on this truck I should be aware of so I can have spare parts on hand. Thanks.

    Spare parts would be relative to the type of driving you plan on doing and the battery(power) you plan on supplying.

    Rear axle stubs bend and break easily. The slipper assy has a plastic bushing and a bearing that get subject to failures. The VXL brushless system gets pretty warm running on 3 cell batteries.
    Read up, there are good fixes available for these few problems.
    Have fun!!

    Congrats on your purchase and good price. I got me PE for $479 on E-Bay. No regrets. I currently painting the lid. I'll post pics later. Enjoy your PE. I'm running 2S Lipos with a 18 Pinion.....must faster than the stock. I also have a 19 pinion that I may try later. I'll see how the heats issues.

    I see the RTR's and PE's in my LHS's (yesterday actually). I think the on-line prices are being driven up by the folks who ordered from Tower and had to wait 4 months+ then they got frustrated. I bought my PE 6 weeks ago on eBay for $380 delivered, now they are getting out of hand.
