    we have a slash that came with a brushed titan.

    If you run 2S/7 cells, nothing will need to be upgraded (except possibly changing the gearing). 3S also works pretty well, but it may wear out the diff output yokes or drive shafts faster.
    Make sure you go with a lower kv motor for the slash, i.e. 3500-4000 kv.

    You don't need to upgrade anything.

    The guys who have brushless slashs just run them, if you eat a spur go 32 p and be done with it.

    You don't NEED to upgrade anything but, you will find that the added speed will cause you to hit stationary objects at a much faster speed and thus breaking or bending most parts on the truck! lol

    The only thing you need to upgrade is your throttle finger...

    wheelie bar

    How fast does the brushless system with a 3s go. What is the diffrence between 7cell 8.4 volts and a 3s? If i do replace it with a brushless and use a 2s-3s will i need a wheelie bar? Do they make one for the slash? thanks for the help... Ill take any other tips you have for me... p.s. Are the Optional Slash shocks made by traxxas neccasary? thatnks again

    If they were needed, they would not be called optional. Also, it'd be nice if you didn't post the same questions in several threads.

    What you need before going BL (literally stands for 'berserk' and 'lunatic' other than 'brushless' LOL) is upgrade your credit card's limit. You'll break more part, shop more..but that's just one part of the game. The other part is to hide the bills and come up with something when your wife/parent/gfs finds them.

    as for wheelie bar in the post above..
    Wheelie does no good..it's such a waste of torque and good power. They're transfered to lift your car, not to propel it forward hence slower acceleration. That's why top fuel dragster only lifts a few inches of the ground despite that huge power. If you want something to dart off the horizon at lightning reaction, keep the front wheels on the ground
    Myth busted: Blitz is not faster on the track.
