You could get the Traxxas Waterproof VXL system.

The new waterproof VXL is a decent system but the new LRP AI is also waterproof is you're more into that.

where did you get the slash? if you got it from a hobby shop and its still closed you should go back and replace it for the vxl slash its only $70 bucks more and in some places such as the hobby shop by my area its only $20 more. Just a suggestion.

to late for that lol i had a very nice bash in when i got it so i dont think the hobby shop will take it back, i bought it and wanted to see how much it could take and it passed but now im just looking to get more out of it i might just get the vxl due to some of the raceways around here only allow the vxl as a replacement kind of lame but ok i guess.
