    Tell me what you guys think of my slash

    I'm just curious, what do you guys think of my slash. I have a 1 year old slash 4x4 vxl. I love and I love it. Out of the 15 or 20 different rcs I've had it's a favorite. Here are the upgrades.blue rpm f&r arms and.bumpers with mud flaps, clear gear cover, blue rpm nerf bars,rpm body savers, esc fan, mip x duties, aluminum big bore shocks, aluminum c hubs rear carriers and castor blocks, blue anodized trx lock nuts, proline ford svt raptor body and proline trenchers, 3s lipo 5000mah,battery expansion kit, sway bars,died black chassis, that's all I can think of off the top oft head, I'm sure I'm missing something. And also, I know everyone is going to say upgrade you electronics but I bought the slash for the 2.4 that I love and the vxl that runs 40 something mph with my lipo. I do t want or need a castle system

    it looks like something is going on with your left rear axle. Solid setup with the mips. The trenchers are awesome for on and off road. The body looks good

    I love the black and blue. I was planing on a very similar look but I don't want to copy you now lol. Dying the chassis is the beast and cheapest way to make the truck look more classy. It looks great. I'm happy that your happy with the 3s and stock electrics. I'll be running the same when I get her up and going. Thats a solid set up. You can't go wrong with RPM. In 4 years I only broke 1 RPM part, front arm, and that was a 60 mph plus crash into my mailbox post, by far my most intense crash lol. I still haven't ran the slash yet. I'm wondering how that setup will perform. I don't want to buy a motor and esc yet so its good to know people are happy with the stock stuff. Good luck

    And shrink wrap over the pins in case they do get loose:

    Thanks, but it wasn't my idea, I read it somewhere else (can't remember where), but it does work ;0)
