    ok guys i got big question

    xbox 360 elite or slash and upgrades and other rc stuff

    i would use both the same amount

    Slash.... no self respecting parent would let a kid choose a game console over something that gets you outdoors (even if you arent a "kid".... i may be 28 and a parent myself, but im still my moms kid )


    Agreed........................ Driviving Rc's get you outside and also developes hand eye co-ordination. also you may actually have to talk to people who are interested and not just "chat" online.lol

    RE: The Official Traxxas Slash short-course race truck

    with $500, I would skip the slash and go with an e-revo or even an E-maxx... you will be MUCH happier with it... especially if you plan to run on grass, slash doesn't do too well on grass being 2WD....

    RE: The Official Traxxas Slash short-course race truck

    I have the New Era 17mm wheel adapters and they work great. The issue I have is that when using 1/8 scale 17mm buggy wheels the offset is way less than the stock slash wheels. In other words when using the 17mm buggy wheels they don't stick out as far and therefore the width is greatly reduced (about 12mm on each side).

    My problem exactly. This causes the front tires to hit the suspension arms when turning. Bender customs makes a delrin 12mm to 17mm adapter that adds about 3/8ths of an inch to the offset but they are out of stock. I have a machinist friend working on some with 1/2 inch offset as we speak. I ran this way at a large local track and even being way too narrow, the truck handled more like an 1/8th scale than a 2wd. This change will make the truck a full race truck with the addition of buggy shocks or the traxxas big bores. If you are interested keep in touch with a PM. The other option would be to go with the Fastlane machine aluminum arms that are extended and you would be able to run the new era adapters straight up. I may go with this option since I run brushless and the extra weight will be more of a help than a problem.

    RE: The Official Traxxas Slash short-course race truck

    did you see the NEW traxxas slayer at traxxas.com. it is 4wd and it is gas powered. it has a revo chasis and every thing. it even has a resonator pipe on it. only if they made a 4wd pro4 electric slash. i would totally buy one of those.

    Wow. I really like that body better. The pic I say had the body off so I couldn't see about the tires.

    I,ve been to a few CORR races and I'm sorry but this new era looks more the thing than the stock traxxas body. 26 & 27 is races in Chula Vista, San Diego. This is the only CORR track I haven't been to yet......I'm pretty stoked to go. Ya'all can check it out at YouTube.

    RE: The Official Traxxas Slash short-course race truck

    Well, now I gotta save another couple hundred $$$ to buy a nitro slayer too! Traxxas must be capping the competition with these models. Hopefully HPI and the rest can play catch up and make models similar with a chevy body. Still love my Slash though, finally put in the Velineon and 23t pinion gear. This sucker flies. Can't wait til the clear bodies come out.
    I\'ve never had a plane I couldn\'t crash.

    RE: The Official Traxxas Slash short-course race truck

    Traxxas is pulling out all the stops. I've been wrapped in the stuffy world of 1/8th scale racing and the slash has really put smiles on my face. We are putting them away for indoor clay racing after we get them all suped up and handling well enough for a tight indoor track but now Traxxas busts the door wide open with the Slayer. I'm not to keen on picking up another nitro car but the itch is starting to grow.

    RE: The Official Traxxas Slash short-course race truck

    I broke my Slash already, I was running about 30 to 40 mph on the dirt, and gravel, and I hit a 3 pound rock. The truck launched up, landed and kept going. When I got around to cleaning it later, I found that I cracked the fiberglass piece that attaches the two front arms hinge pins together. I made a .063 aluminum replacement. Do you think that will work?

    This is the part I broke

    RE: The Official Traxxas Slash short-course race truck

    Nice job there, that cross brace would be better made of steel as the aluminum will break at the hingepins pretty easy unless it's thicker than it looks. Watch out for those rocks lol

    RE: The Official Traxxas Slash short-course race truck

    I stripped my spur gear yesterday, which is really crappy because no hobby shops here were open.... my fault entirely... I never checked the slipper when I bought it, and thought it was probably too tight, but ran the crap out of it anyway... jumped off a curb and landed on the throttle, and that was all she wrote.... The REALLY crappy part is that I was about 15-20 seconds into my run showing it off to my moms boyfriend.... When it came to a stop in the middle of the street I said "yep... pretty cool huh? lets go inside..." it did last through 6 packs without a problem before it stripped, even with the slipper too tight though....

    It's an old Revo 2.5 chassis with a 3.3 motor, short arm suspension and a set of Slash 2.2s on it. It's actual wheelbase is shorter than the slash. It's nothing special and my Revo 3.3 would tear it a new one.

    I would think you wouldn't like it as it's even further away from a scale Corr truck than the Slash is.

    Dude, it is the same as slash as far as scale goes. The wheel base is 1/2 inch shorter but the overall lenth is the same and track width same. I'm not really into electric anyway so this one is perfect to me. Check the measurements again this chassis sets between the 3.3 and the 2.5. It maybe a whole new chassis.

    Why so harsh? So what if your revo would tear it a new one. It should! This truck would appeal to many people who would never even look at a revo. And I bet you that with some chassis tuning and 1/8th scale buggy tires, it may tear your revo a new one on a race track, not off of skate board ramps of course.
