Traxxas slash or Losi Dst
 
My local track is starting up a class for slash and probably the desert trucks to.
i just want to know which one handles better or has more speed, out of turns.
Cause its going to stock, cause of spec classes.

the slash is better. Its water proof, brushless ready, handles goods. And if i guy comes in here named Rc chris or chris Rc dont listen to him. hes the big losi fanboy ever. all he dose is bash other companies.

lol you didn't read the DT thread, did you? It's the DT owners who are racing against Slashes saying those things.

Why don't you ask the guys at the track if they will let you race?

RE: Traxxas slash or Losi Dst
 
traxxas stuff is cheap/simple and low performance

if you are allowed to race the losi DT in the same class as the slash, you'd be a fool to choose the slash

the fun of the slash is that everyone is driving the same slow lump around the track, the losi is clearly a better vehicle

To give full credit the Slash does look very cool running side by side with other Slashes.

ya, it is funny at my track because at the start it seems as every truck flips over and it looks like a 1/8 buggy with the speed of a titan 12t motor.

RE: Traxxas slash or Losi Dst
 
The sad thing about the slash is that with some losi shock springs, good 2.2 inch tires on the stock wheels and additional power, it will flat out fly around the track but all the people at the tracks are fighting to keep it stock and that is just rediculous since the truck is cheap to begin with and that makes it easier to upgrade it a little. I have to add that you must note that this class has mostly new racers running it and that gives the impression they dont handle well. They do handle well but they have higher limits than the Losi Desert truck and are harder to go as fast. I love the truck but hate the class. it is too slow for me. Maybe people will start to mod them and we can have another class but that is a sore issue also. I think it will die off in a couple months.

I think i will wait and get the slash possibly just cause of the part support at the lhs.
They carry no losi.
And im not going to get it right now, cause i want to see what associated comes out with.

Your acting really immature "just like a newb...".:eek: Losi is a great company and I'd buy their products over AE anyday. Besides this isnt a "Losi Vs AE" battle anyways. Stick to the topic...

Hey can the desert truck handle brush less.

Some people run VXL/8 cell nimh and lipo and never have any problems but I heard of 1 person blowing their diff gear. A bunch of people that run brushless dont have a problem though. If you think about it how can a tranny gear strip if it is set up properly?

RE: Traxxas slash or Losi Dst
 
I've been running a MM/Velineon on 3s lipo for about 3 months now no problem. I even tried to strip the spur by tightening the slipper all the way and driving stupid but it still wouldn't break.
