    Slash build going for 145+

    Itís been quite awhile since I posted here (been building mostly non-Traxxas cars) but I figured every speed runner needs a Slash in the fleet!!!

    This car has the best of everything in it...

    XLX
    8s TP 4070
    Carbon fiber drive shaft
    Carbon fiber shock towers
    Saga carbon fiber battery trays and ESC plate
    Saga motor mount
    Hot Racing hubs and castors
    MIP X-Duty front and rear
    Ceramic bearings throughout
    Revo shocks in front/ Hobao GT in rear
    Savox 1256 black servo
    EMP center brace and cap pack
    Rebuilt diffs
    Futaba FASST Rx

    This car was built for one purpose only, and that is the beautiful 2-letter word of ďPBĒ




    Iíve been fighting some bad weather lately, but the body will be finished, the foams thrown on, and testing beginning ASAP!!!!

    Will post run videos soon as I do...

    Wow talk about starting out like a bullet. Bet you will clear 100 in the first test, unless you have to hold back for some reason.

    Nice build!
    Slash 4x4 is always one of the fastest 1/8 GT cars just simply due to weighing a few lbs less than metal chassis cars.
    I have been torn about picking one up again.

    I picked up that motor mount a while back, but have not decided if I really want to go full speed build. No place to really run it that way!
