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!</p>

Anyone need a brand new stock traxxas 1200 mah nimh battery and/or charger? Cheap price. Let me know.

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 :]

Yeah alot of people are saying they are pretty fast on one battery...going to be a blast running two 6 cell nimh's....:)

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

redfisher1974 06-17-2009 02:52 PM

RE: OFFICIAL 1/16 VXL Slash thread.
 
I can get you a list of the batteries that will fit if you so need.check out the traxxas community forum..lots of people have them and the reveiws are coming..mostly good..one broken a-arm and one esc gone up in smoke...but thats going to happen with a new release and having a 50mph mini...

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

I bet it would be crazy with some drift tires. http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/js/f...y/msn/idea.gif

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.

Those JACO foams look sick. Word is they handle amazing with these tires on the truck, onroad of course. Please give some feedback with your experience.

I have not ran those tires..i just found that pic and thought it was cool...

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

RE: OFFICIAL 1/16 VXL Slash thread.
 
There are tons of discussions on batteries that will fit. How about some comments on durability, such as during jumping?
