    xl5 stearing components vs vxl?

    I have a xl5 slash that i have been converting to vxl i have changed driveshafts motor and esc. I belive the only thing left would be the stearing components. My question is if there is any real benefits to the vxl bellcrank and servosaver? And if so what would i need to covert it? I also have a lcg chassis if that makes a diffrence.

    Btw I mostly use the slash for racing around a friends small drit track at his place

    Take it from this old timer: If isn't broken - don't fix it. There really is no pressing need for a backyard racer/basher to change over from the servosaver to the bellcrank. Focus on hitting the apex of a turn and not making any driver mistakes.

    I have a brushed slash that I threw a vxl system in, and eventually I broke the bellcrank. I decided to put in the vxl bellcrank is soooo much better, with a lot less slop. I would highly recommend it.

    I haven't tried the new version that has the servo saver in it. I have the TRX and STRC aluminum versions and they're solid.

    I'm learning this more and more. Not just with RC but my full size car projects as well .
