ORIGINAL: Foam Crazy
okay guys. i have some exciting info to share.
i found these nifty ''wheel wideners'' on ebay. these extensions make the standing width 11mm wider on each wheel. these should really help with some of the unwanted roll-overs we get on our slashes. plus, when you combined these wideners with after market offset wheels, such as my modified hpi ss wheels shown here with erevo tires, it makes the stance that much wider. total combined, it makes the 1/16 slash about as wide as the 1/16 erevo stance. mine came in at around 9'' wide, and i believe the erevo is 9.4'' wide.
if you're interested, look up ''RNR slash 1/16 wheel'' on ebay, and you will find them.
and here's another idea i have. i kept losing body clips, whenever i had a bad tumble or cartwheel. as a poor-man's solution, i drilled a couple of small holes near the body peg holes (i'm sure there are more accurate names for these things...) and ran a rubber band through to them, connecting to the body clips. this is a cheap way to keep the clips together on the body when you take a spill. i've had some nasty end-over-end spills recently, and the body clips never got lost.
your mileage may vary, but it works well for me.
my next project is an onboard video camera. stay tuned...
