I am tossed up between the vendetta rally and the slash...  I don't have a lot of offroad driving spots near my house, but I like the looks of the slash a lot..  seems like a nice car for on or off road.. but probably more fun off road..

Thank You for the video link! And very sweet looking pic. The rims on the far left would look sick for that setup!

The UPS guy came way late last night, so we didn't get a chance to try out our new mini Slash's until today. I really wasn't into cars because of all the Heli related things I do, but now I'm stoked about cars too. The stock battery seemed to last about 20 minutes with great power. I'm still going to have to make some Lipo saddlepacks though.I also noticed that thestock bumper is alot stronger than it looks :]

the battery area on these cars is way to small, very limited on what size batteries you can use

That thing looks nice. Road wheels/tires will be a must for sure.

I bet it would be crazy with some drift tires.

Personally, I'd love to see someone put the proline helios body on one (the warthog buggy from Halo).  I think it would fit great.

So does the tranny have plastic gears or metal?
What about diffs, are they metal?

There are tons of discussions on batteries that will fit. How about some comments on durability, such as during jumping?
