    RE: The Official Traxxas Slash short-course race truck

    Thanks!!!! The Slash with the Dare body and RPM upgrades has a DTX/Castle 3900KV system in it and the other has a Castle Sidewinder 4600KV system, both are acceptionally quick and agile.

    RE: The Official Traxxas Slash short-course race truck

    how's....

    with the roll cage is added extra weight & the pre load I run, and oil F-50wt R-60wt, I noticed that the progressive part of the spring are nearly fully compressed on the rear and its only really fully using 4 coils.
    So tonight ive fitted some rustler spring, I was able to get the same ride hight but with less spring spacers now it uses the whole spring (7 coils) so thats 3 more coils.
    Wouldent that mean the rate in witch it stiffens would of been reduced??? or another way of saying it, If the rustler springs are set to the same preload/force of the slash springs, would the increase of force per mm of travel be lower than the slash springs????

    am i over thinking this lol

    OMG, I Rembered before I have some left over Cool Master Thermal Compound, so Ive compounded the fan+heatsink to the motor & cable tied around it.
    cant wait to see how well it draws heat from the motor now... Dammm night time!!!! ok ill wait till after work

    ok the more i look at the front springs, now i want to get some white rustler ones, not to shure that the progressive spring are any good, hummmmmmm
    is it just a sales pitch?

    RE: The Official Traxxas Slash short-course race truck

    lol, ok...
    Im loving it here, its just about to hit summer... S.A. is the dryest state in AUS. Most of my back lawn dies off & the dirt turns like sand... nothing like loose dirt & massive rooster tails. so it makes for some great bashing, even the local track is nice and loose, brings a whole new meaning to dirt drifting.
    nar most of the bigger r/c shop have all the parts but they are expensive, its cheaper for me online. I order all my parts online, apart from paints and other small items.
    ok as for kangaroo's u wont belive this... but there are some accross the road. NO BS.
    Dont worry i dont live bush, we are only 30km away from the CBD but there is a natural reserve just accross the road where they live. seriously they are boring, they just hop away, just dont ever get in the way of a large wild male...

    And No we dont ride them to work.....

    That would be just like asking a American do they ride fat kids to work

    all fun & games.

    RE: The Official Traxxas Slash short-course race truck

    My slash 4x4 is mostly stock, what aftermarket shocks would you guys recommend for bashing and local races? I've been researching Traxxas Big Bores, Prolines, and doing a D8 buggy front shock conversion on all 4 shocks. I already bent one of my stock front shock shafts. I bent it back and its not leaking but I know I will be needing new ones.
