    Platinum Slash 4x4 Numero 2

    Picked up another slash 4x4 but keeping this one as a truck. Just waiting on the new system to show up which will be a castle sensored motor and mmx.

    Nice!

    I'm jealous.
    I want another Platinum to keep basically stock as a street rig... not a speed rig.

    Those blue rims are sweet looking! Were you trying to match the blue anodized parts ? If so that's pretty awesome!

    I replaced mine with the STRC cranks. They are great. The reason mine crashed was one of the steering bearings had sand in it. I would suggest getting some new bearings to go with it.

    I like them a lot. I have one on my other slash 4x4 and it made a big difference on the way the car was tracking down the street. Well worth the money.

    No need for new bearings yet Gunner, truck is new.

    Looks like a raptor, besides the chevey sticker and grill, but you should put some red bull decals on it!

    Thanks fellas! These 2.2s do not work, they hit the carriers up front. I did actually order some sct aluminum beadlocks that I am waiting for at the moment. It does need some sticker but don't think the red bull ones would go good with the purple.

    Still a great job on the chrome. I used chrome paint in the 80s and it came out horrible. Any tips on how to get it good? You mentioned 30 coats before. Is that barely a "dust" coat each time?

    Thanks brother! Yes very lightly sprayed dust coats, problem was spraying it created over spray that did not allow some coats to even out and made the chrome patchy but its still the best outcome I have had with the chrome. Due to the patchy spots I decided not to back it up with anything.

    Haven't driven the truck yet, I managed to ruin the chrome by spraying too much clear coat to back it up so it doesnt keep from rubbing off so it made it look dull now.
    But on the bright side, my aluminum beadlocks shipped so I am excited about that and picked up some tires for them.
