    OK, ok, you might be getting a true 7.4v now. Nice.

    Yeah, my mmp only did 7v supposedly, if it even did that.

    Castle does have the upper hand on waterproof though

    If you want to run wet. Electronics stay dry for me. We will see how the new sensored works? ????

    going to toss my knocklands on there for now....

    looking for new tires --- need to be pre-mounts, and in a 17mm wheel -- want trenchers, badland mx or swampers ---- suggestions?



    going to try and adjust some stuff on the hot wire

    so if it isn't raining tomorrow befroe work, I will try and run it, haven't put my knocklands on yet, but I do think I got my reverse dialed in, and also reduced the lag time (hopefully I didn't jack anything up )

    I have had really good experiences with the badlands. On both my emaxx and my slash. Trenchers next on my list to try. Amazing traction anywhere you go. Not snow though.....but you shouldn't have to worry about that lol

    Ran it with the slicks. Pretty impressed. I think I dialed out all the lag, and also upped my braking power to 75%. Might put full 100% braking ability.

    I also think my tail sits a little high... it is adjusted all the way down though. Not sure how to fix that yet. Needs some tuning.

    I still want faster though. I know it will be faster when I throw on the knocklands, as they are quite a bit larger in od.

    Maybe it is the sensor, but this thing doesn't beep anymore like the castle did all the time, and power application is so smooth... especially since I go from stopped to full throttle all the time

    We'll just have to see what is up with the rear, might have to shorten the shock end's a bit. Also maybe I'll let you try out a 17 on that motor. That is if you will be nice to it!!! Plus I want to see it run.

    Yes, no more cogging and beeping with a sensored system. Glad you like it!!

    haha, after all that work of putting the longer shock ends on........

    I am sure it will be faster when I put the knocklands on it, they are a lot bigger, probably like 1/2"

    While I love my Vorza shocks, if I had the chance again, I would probably just get the GTRs.

    Ok, so I REALLY need to get some new tires... the slicks are cool, but little. The knocklands give me great top end, but super twitchy, cookie cutters at speed.

    I may need to actually gear down! I didn't toss the ir temp gun on it, but the esc fan was solid on, and the motor was warm.

    What I do is I leave the truck on and walk upstairs, usually by the time I reach my door the ESC fan turns off.

    That motor will be warm. It always get's some heat into it. If it is just warm that is great especially the way you drive.

    Thanks. I might get them on 3.2's along with taping and see how the hold up. Mainly I'm looking for a tire so I can switch them between my emaxx and slash.

    Yes I was think of putting them on 3.2 rims....so it would be less of a sidewall

    I would NOT stretch a 2.8 o to a 3.2 wheel.doing so requires cutting the bead of the tire and or the bead seat of the wheel. Both of which can, and will lead to them being weaker. NO THANKS..... as with full size cars less sidewall will transfer more shock to the wheel itself, making bent wheels, more of a concern/ reality, even more so when it has been cut

    so I started taping with some duck brand tape.... not too happy, the tape seems flimsy, I think I need to listen to yall and get some gorilla tape now

    also, what about holes in the tires afterwards? before? size? I have heard to pick up a leather punch at hobby lobby?

    I am headed to the flea market in the morning, and then the gun range to take a test, but after that, will pick up some tape...

    So I am going to have to install my proline ext mounts. It sits a little low. I got 2 of them mounted so far, and gorilla taped. Also did some slight trimming of the body.



    Pic is missing some of the parts I cut









    so for some reason, these pics from tapatalk no longer show up on my PC -- not sure why. they uyed to --- figured out what it is.... I have to remove the s from https

    Looks great. Did you have to gear down for the bigger tires, or was there just so much more traction that it wheelies better?

    gearing is @ 16/52 rigfht now, but I think I need to go smaller pinion and larger spur to mitigate possile heat issues. I have not temp'd the heat yet

    so.... while I really like my monster slash, it is too much, detracts from the driveability of beign a slash in the first place... I would not be able to run this on the track.....

    I am currently considering turning this back into a regular slash, and going with 12mm sct wheels and tires.....
