sounds like fun, go UP in battery quality for the vxl. You'll be glad you did.

I've already got permission from the wife to get a new radio setup. Can't wait, I hope I can find a decent 2.4 Ghz setup in my price range.

No don't bother with Venom packs. Get a 7 cell EnerG 4600 side by side pack from Promatchracing.com.

Skip NiMh all together and go straight to LiPO.

Anybody else have a b-day on April 20th? I know Carmen Electra, Luther Vandross, Joey Lawrence, Napoleon III and Adolf Hitler are on April 20th...

If you are going brushless, might as well go LiPo and see if you can really tear something up the first time it crashes!

Even if you are not going brushless (thugh the OP says he's upgrading soon) it's worth it to go LiPO with the brushed set up...longer run times!!!

As for April 20th B-days....My wife is due on the 23rd and my first daughter was 3 days early....I might have a 20th b-day

If you are going to be changing a bunch of things, may as well look at the SC10 and add whatever electronics you want up front. It would save you some $$ and you will have a better truck. That is if you plan on changing everything on the slash anyway.

SC10 kit runs around $155 - $180 depending on where you buy it.

I'd look at the SC10 as well. The Slash is fine but really it's a bit overrated and overhyped, it's still just Traxxas old 2wd electric platform.

no its platform is NOT old it has all the metal gears and rubbersealed ball bearings....SC10 would be great..BUT he would spend more money on a BL SC10 than a BL traxxas slash

I get excited whenever I get anything that has wheels or at least has a motor, so I know where he's coming from. CONGRATS! Post some pics when you get it and when you upgrade it.

Congrats man. I just bought a crawler last week and my slash was my Christmas present . It will not stay new very long so get used to it. I love trashing that truck. I really gotta get it working again []. Needs a receiver that costs 90 bucks [:@].
