    Look into the backslash. Its technically a 1/10. For 1/10 class, most tracks recommend a 540 can. The tekin rx8 esc and 9.5t tekin pro4 is a good system.

    Ok the more I look it up, people can't decide if its 1/10 or 1/8.

    I have a couple of Backslashes and a couple of 1/8 Mugen MBX6 ECO buggies. The Slash with stock Velineon motor running 2s is nowhere near as capable as the Mugen running Tekin 1900kv or 2050kv on 4s. For example, the Mugen will take a quint no problem whereas the Slash with stock gearing has no chance. You have to triple, double the 5 jumps with the Slash.

    I have a Losi SCTE 2.0 with Tekin 4300 running 2s 65c and it can take the quint also but you have to be setup perfect coming around the corner or you will case the 5th jump.
