    RE: The Official Traxxas Slash short-course race truck


    ORIGINAL: spikeitaudi

    Picking up my Slash in the afternoon. We will run a Slash Stock class at our local track with no spec on battery with the 12T motor. What does everybody suggest as a battery for the stock motor for a 5 minute qualifer and main?
    Max Amps 6000mah![>:] Thats what I run and love it. You cant beat the quality of Max Amp lipos. I have had mine for over a year now, have never balanced it, and still peaks at allmost 9v. I ran the Slash for 20 minutes the other day and when I threw the battery on the charger it took allmost 4000mah. That means I could of probably ran it for about 1/2 an hour!

    RE: The Official Traxxas Slash short-course race truck

    Thanks for that info but I don;t want to go Lipo as they are expensive and require me to get another charger. I am more of a nitro guy, but this thing was to good to pass up and get started in electric. Got a 3000mAH Nimh Venom battery. Seems to work well. Might go with a 7 cell next thou insteat of the 6 Cell. Is there a big gain in the 7 vs 6 cell in speed?

    Here is my slash:

    You really should think about balancing your lipo. If you have had it over a year and never balanced it you might have problems with it in the future.

    RE: The Official Traxxas Slash short-course race truck

    I'm surprised, the slash really looks a lot of fun. And it also looks nice now that there are some decent photos around. Still looks terrible with the shell off, but then all Traxxi do.

    RE: The Official Traxxas Slash short-course race truck

    I do. So there.

    Rc cars aren't cheap in general, I know this is cheap for an RC car but I'd like it to look a little better under the shell. At least to not look like it's a time warp from the 80's.

    RE: The Official Traxxas Slash short-course race truck

    Polishing what's under the body ultimately just adds to that already "not cheap" price. I'm sure in the future there will be carbon chassis and such, but the majority of people won't run one. I love the idea of a low cost out of the box. Let those who want the bling pay for it.

    I don't particularly want bling, i'd just like it not to look like a dodgem/ bumper car.

    People at my local track already have one. The entire fleet up at reo raceway bought one also.
    I talked to my freind Jeff and he said this class is temporary and shouldnt interfere with the other classes.
    I personally think people will get bummed out of this class. Because Lock is gonna be running in this class.

    RE: The Official Traxxas Slash short-course race truck

    There should be a race test between the, thundertech corr truck vs the slash vs the tamiya f-150 corr truck. And see who would win and be the best truck

    The Thundertech is the only proper CORR truck in there, it is the only one with a solid axle.

    A good track has box stock classes divided into newb and experienced classes. You usually have to win like five races to move into the experienced class. And if you finish dead last on five races, you get bumped down to the newb class until you get better.

    Any track that has near experts going against newbs all the time is not helping the hobby.

    RE: The Official Traxxas Slash short-course race truck

    I'm not going to mind racing with more experienced drivers tomorrow (our first spec race). We are going to change to using the Traxxas brushless due to our track layout. We are leaving it open to run brushed at a later date if there is more interest. Racing with more experienced drivers allows you to see the best lines and the best way to run the track.

    RE: The Official Traxxas Slash short-course race truck

    i finaly got to run this rig yesterday and well i thought it felt like a wet noodle. LOL me personaly i would put some thicker shock oils in cause it was so soft it made it feel real loose and caused it not to jump very well and bottom out real bad. this class it getting very popular in a real short time at my track i will get one in due time i really like how you can get into somebody on the track and not get tangeled up like in my buggy class ya i can see why you guys like thease things. i just wish traxxas would have made thease brushless.

    I wouldn't get that Reference pack, too pricey for no name cells, get the 4600 7c hump pack with the red/black EP cells.Much better choice IMO...

    Yes, that is the one that will likely be better than the 5000 generic pack.
