    RE: The Official Traxxas 4wd Slash Thread...

    this review says the undertray isn't that great...and it has video to back it up.

    but of course, what doesn't work for one person may work perfect for another!

    RE: The Official Traxxas 4wd Slash Thread...

    Watched the video. I think it would be fine if you trimmed it even with the chassis and did something to seal the top edge to keep rocks out. Something like that push on trim they use on cars that kinda acts like a small u-shaped clip along an edge. It would protect the servo and axle at least... Does the RPM front skid plate protect the servo any better?

    Have you ever hit your servo before? I think you'd have to be doing some really weird stuff to get anything near it. But you you might be into that stuff.....

    I hear you can mod the revo servo protector to fit a 2wd slash, maybe see it'd work on the 4x4

    RE: The Official Traxxas 4wd Slash Thread...

    There's a couple of people on the Traxxas forum that have used the Proline Undertray and mounted the JConcepts overtray on top of it making a sandwich.  They seem to be working quite well in that configuration. One that I know of mounted a fan onto the overtray to keep temps where they should be. They all seem happy.

    RE: The Official Traxxas 4wd Slash Thread...

    Took my truck out today. Lots of things getting in ontop of the axle. I need to add a peice onto the axle cover so there isn't the opening at the end of it. I put the center diff in, so there's no reason to have that area exposed.

    I have hit my servo climbing over rocks and stuff. This thing climbs pretty good, could probably be made into a crawler with some mods.

    If I ever get a real engineering job makin more money, maybe I'll get a Summit... Rustler, Slash 4x4, and a Summit... sounds like a nice set. Now I got a 4x4 for off roading, I think I'm going to tune up my Rustler for street running and see how fast I can get it going.

    RE: The Official Traxxas 4wd Slash Thread...

    Well I ran my first race today..I finished 7th in my class so I'm kinda happy lol
    a few things i learned today:
    1. my track has been run enough its now hard clay
    2.bowties rule on my track
    3.bring extension cords to the track lol
    4.our track uses transponders so..so new hole in the vw body!
    i picked me up a set of beadlock wheels(they look identical to the ones in the link) with some bowtie m3's and wow...its a huge difference over the stock 2wd slash tires!

    if someone will let you try out their "Caliber" tires from proline do it, they are amazing as well.

    RE: The Official Traxxas 4wd Slash Thread...

    I find that the bowtie is better out of the package and the caliber needs to break in. I found the beadlock wheels would not hold the tires on with my brushless system and they are heavier more rotating mass = motor heat.

    RE: The Official Traxxas 4wd Slash Thread...

    I had no problems at all with them yesterday..the foams inside them are nice and firm and they dont balloon very much..and im running a sidewinder/4600kv combo..I love them! thinking about getting some paddle tires for the back so when i go to the beach all i have to do is unclench the rear and clench the paddles on..I love beadlocks!! And I was going to get calibers, but these were all the ystill had in stock as everyone else was getting new tires lol but i'm happy as hell with them

    RE: The Official Traxxas 4wd Slash Thread...

    I've been interested in trying some beadlocks. Would be nice to just swap out tires when you want to. I love them for my scale and crawling but not sure with racing. Maybe if i tune my ESC down for punch..

    was a loose bullet connector,saw that the esc wasn't flashing red then looked for and found problem. i will be putting that 14 tooth back on now.
    ORIGINAL: yotaman1991

    does anyone have any experience running a 2s with a 14 tooth pinion? i seem to be hitting thermal shutdown on the track after only a few mins on a breezy 70 degree day. what should i do? i want the truck to go faster then stock and all i have is the stock battery and a 2s 20c 5000mah lipo. i just cut some holes in the body and bought the esc fan. is the motor heat sink really gonna help? also does anyone know what temps the motor can handle up to?

    RE: The Official Traxxas 4wd Slash Thread...

    I have the Jconcepts cover too. I'm sure the Proline under tray would eliminate putting anything on the shaft to keep the rocks out. Doing the sandwich thing would work. You really have to vent the lid. I'd use a fine screen or cut a Outerwears filter and use that to let air in and then just open vents at the rear and fan the ESC.

    Here is the link for the guy who couldn't find it.

    Ya, I was wondering what the heck he has going on there. Looks like the shocks are mounted on the bumper, but how in the world can that be??

    there are two sets, you can see the normal front shocks attached to the towers as normal (looks like it anyway). Maybe he has extra bumper travel? Or maybe he just set them there

    Anyone runnning or seen the Novak 5.5 HV system in these? I was going to run 3S mainly. It seem like mine cogs. I'm running a 15T with 2.8 Pede tires. Also temps were 140 on 3S with it being cool and no lid on and heat sinked up. Was fast though.

    Which ESC are you using ??I run a Novak HV 4.5 with a mamba max pro esc on 2s 5000 mah and it's butter smooth

    Stock VXL. Looking for something better. Seems like 3S is going to run hot like it always does on the VXL. May pull the trigger on the MMM. I'm still working on my diffs and suspension. Just got it running last night, but looks like a 15T pinion and some flat our run will get me temps of 140 on a 50 degree day. Not good for later in the season. May have to just buck up and get the MMM.

    What is a good starting point for shock oil in the front and back for racing on a clay track with some big jumps . I have not changed the stock yet . But plan to change becausethe back end is popping up alot over jumps and bumps .

    Gonna have a go at racing next week and need to dial in my truck .

    I was thinking 60 front 50 rear , like the Steve Slayden set up . Anyone else racing with the Slayden set up on indoor clay tracks ?

    RE: The Official Traxxas 4wd Slash Thread...

    those are stock shocks on the front bumper, i have big bores in the standard spots. i attached them for a stronger bumper becuase it seemed to weak around the bottom and kept pulling off when in a strong impact, this actually helps more than needed. i bought a xerun 80a esc and the 2-pole ezrun 3665sl motor for it and it should be here tuesday. I also fixed my 6888 problem front and rear (broke them awhile go similtamiously) now the aluminum center shaft is one big dog bone and i have mip outputs where the 6888's were....its actually smoother this way with less stress on the drivetrain and i just replace traxxas through-set screws on the CS/dogbone.....ill post pics on that later

    RE: The Official Traxxas 4wd Slash Thread...

    So I was tearing mine down to do the diffs and so on, when I noticed that there is a bit of a gap on the main shaft. The blue main shaft can silde front to back about 1/4". I am going to put some ruber washers or rings on it to keep it even on both sides. I did the electrical tape and heat shrink trick on the shaft. I am going to take some lexan from a body and heat it and bend it and extend the clear shaft cover towards the rear more. I put 50K in both diffs. this should stop the one wheel peel I'm been getting
