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

    Yes it would work as long as you run the slipper not the optional center diff. Also, take the axles out of the front. Then you'll be 2wd.

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

    I dont really need to pull out the entire front, i just have to remove the center drive shaft so that the front rolls free, and i do run the slipper and not the center diff, i just wanted to know would it handle the same as a 2wd?

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

    Well if you leave the axles in, then you will have some resistance tne the front. The front diff is filled with 30K. So it will not handle the same as a 2wd if you leave the axles in. Also youll have more friction.

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

    ahh i see now

    so if i remove the entire front diff, would it handle like a 2wd from the rear or would it have different diff characteristics?

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

    4wd is way different from 2wd and really requires a different driving style. 4wd gets TONZ more traction. When you slow down or stop it loads on the front tires, with 2wd it makes braking very easy, with 4wd the front actually brakes. Apply brake too fast and you nose dive and it sends you flipping end over end.

    I have both the slash and rustler on 3s LiFe and enjoy them both. After getting used to the 4wd, I think I prefer it. It's just way more responsive and way more grippy. Grip can make it seem more difficult to drive than 2wd, it's just a matter of compensating for the extra traction.

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

    Yes and hell yes!!!! Just last night I ran it at the track while a guy with the Prolines sat looking at his busted $100 set of shocks. These run under $70. I got some other people to try them who had never owned a Losi before and they didn't realize that Losi shocks don't have the need to use heavy oil like other shocks do. If you get them use medium springs with oil no thicker than 35wt. I run 25wt in the front and 35 in the rear.

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

    So is this thread dead?

    Anyone here still have thier Slash?

    Looking at upgrading to the new MIP heavy duty axles, the 6860X motor plate and the aluminum bearing adapter VS buying a SC8e. My Slash already hits 51mph on 3S why would I want to spend $$$ more to do the same thing? So farnew issues other than twisting axles.

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

    Hey Ive heard that simply swapping out the stock springs for a set of T/E-Maxx springs works good and will improve handling/jumping on the track, is this true? I race on indoor clay (LOVE it)

    Yes. Maxx red springs. That or some like the Losi springs. I'm a basher and I run on an MX track and the Maxx springs have seemed to work the best for me. I found that the losi's were too short or too soft. The Integy just were cruddy.

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

    hey guys, umm...this is probably off topic but, i'm ordering a lipo hardcase battery pack from hobbyking.com and a thought just occurred to me. the leads that the lipo hardcase has, they're not traxxas connectors, obviously. i was wondering what extra connector i should have to be able to fit on my traxxas stampede (pretty much a shortened slash as i'm told). i figured if i ask on this thread, i'll get a fast and clear answer.
