    Slayer pro racing help

    Hi i have a slayer pro so far i've got a sway bar kit on it and some upgraded tires(proline badlands) which work good for loose dirt that i ride on but for a harder packed dirt track(Chula vista rc park aka heritage rc park if you want to look up the track and tell me what tires would be good for that please) what tires should i get and what rims? Also what class would be be able to race in if i can even race it at all, do you guys race them?
    Also looking into a radio and transmitter upgrade and a charger for my ez start 2(ive upgraded to a duratrax onyx 5000 ni-mh battery for it but i need a better charger
    Also is there any other upgrades i should make to the car?

    Thanks, Brett

    There is no s/c truck racing in my area, but I have upgraded it a lot to run at the local track.
    So far I added sway bars, changed shock oil to 40 front 45 rear, added P3 rockers and last but not least, I purchased some factory rims and mounted some Blockades on them and they seem to hook up fine once the track packs down a bit. They are awesome so far and the guy's at the track like the way it handles the track which was designed for buggies.

    You can upgrade to 17mm adapters and run AE 1/8th scale sc wheels. The slayer pro is an inch longer than the slash and an inch shorter than the AE SC8. You can ask your local track if they know anybody who has the 1/8th scale AE truck. The longer wheelbase means the slayer pro wont corner as well for 1/10th sc but if you're able to get in 1/8th sc race (if your lhs&t has them) then do that as you will have the advantage of the 1/8ths in corners. 👍

    17mm adapters: http://m.ebay.com/itm/321499190743?nav=SEARCH
    SC8 wheels: http://m.ebay.com/itm/321510802261?nav=SEARCH
    The tires depend on the track. Go to the local track and ask what others are running. It helps to make friends too! Especially when ya need tuning help!

    The D.e. Racing wheels are much better that the assosiated in terms of durability. And as for tire I would go with a blockade it's a great all around track tire or aka enduros.
    6S OR NOTHING............................ maybe 5s

    I'm running in 4wd short course and I just finished the season as champ by one point. I run DE 17mm sc rims with Proline Caliber SC's, red tubes all around, the smaller revo sway bars(not the thin slayer ones), summit axels cut down to fit, Center Diff, lipo battery with a voltage regulator and some savox servos.








    in this pic it has Proline Treanchers
