    yea haha. That wasn't even full speed haha. As I said in a post that you commented on it runs on 6s. Just under 90mph at max speed, but I have never been able to get it that fast even on that street in the video which is longer than the range of the tqi, haha.

She needs a lot of practice feathering the throttle lol. Its probably my fault for starting her off on 3S. The tires on both vehicles lost about 50% of tread life . Next weekend I want her to try the X-Maxx...


    I was shocked to hear her say she wants a car of her own! I want her to have something she can drive on road and off so I think a slash is probably the best choice. I'm in the process of building a monster slash for myself and it looks like I need to build two. Definitely getting her a 2S battery once I get the car together.
    I would recommend the slash 4x4 or rustler 4x4. The rustler imo handles better stock, but I also haven't had a stock slash in quite a few years, haha.

    Broke a rear bearing carrier today, so I ordered a set of the STRC aluminum rear carriers with the oversized bearings - plus a set for the front and knuckles too.

    Thinking about sticking a gyro on it and doing endless donuts in the kitchen.

    Packed my diff with bearing grease in hopes it'll act more like a limited slip, and changed shock oil to 50wt. Didn't get to run my truck today, rained after work, just like it did yesterday... East coast weather I tell ya!

    Just ordered everything necessary to resurrect my Raptor. (I pirated all electronics, motor, and transmission for my wife’s Baja build.)

    Took it out for my first bash in a month last night. Ripped some big, dusty donuts in my grandma's driveway, and flung some sand roosts off a sand pile in my driveway. Reminded of how much I was missing this truck!

    Put on a new set of Proline Gladiators with a front offset at all four corners. It widens the rear track and full throttle starts are now possible without losing control. What an improvement!

    Beat the crap out of my Slash today, more of stress test, tried to see how hot my ESC and motor got, Got a 156F motor and ESC was 100F or so, so I think im a bit under geared so I geared it up a little and do it again tomorrow if it doesn't rain. Blew up a rear shock as well...

    Think I need new shock oil...my rear shocks have no rebound. This was yesterday, sorry I'm consistently a day late with my posts to this...might also need to gear down, the last time I checked my motor, i could barely hold my finger to it for 2 seconds.

    I broke a caster block, and had to order a new one, my brother broke his pinion gear, and my friend lost his clutch pin somehow... a good day of carnage. We have a lot of parts being ordered now

    This was Sat/Sun this weekend. Slash in blue is brand new as of last Saturday (Slash VXL Blue Box), purchased at a local dealer. Slash in red is a month old to me but was bought used and might as well be nearly brand new being I'm $1500-ish into that one now as of yesterday lol. There is a lot to list on what I've done to these two, and sort of a back story as to why I have 2 now, but that's a topic for another time. Here are some pics...

    Making a rally slash 4x4. Going to be running on 3s and switching my current working slash 4x4 into a 2s monster slash.

    I got a beast of a slash 2wd.
    To make this an actually post here.
    I drove this for a bit a few days ago. Not on 6s as show in the picture, but on 4s. This combo will reach 180mph calculations wise.

    What was the point of moving your reciever box to the front? nothing is obstructing its original mounting points

    The esc cable. It isn't long enough to reach the normal spot with making a different hold for it as my esc is covering up the original one. I have made a new hole now, but this pic is ild so it dosent have it. Another reason is I couldn't find the original receiver box. Found it now though
