Post all your Slash's here!

A question:

What would you upgrade on your Slash? I have everything from RPM, but i thinks i will upgrade my turnbuckels to Alum, and put BigBore dampers on.

Is that a "good" upgrade do you think?

lincpimp 02.14.2010 02:48 PM

The big bore shocks are nice. That and rpm arms would be my first mods. Al turnbuckles are not a good idea if you bash alot, and the weight savings are not really worth the cost. A better steering servo would be next on my list, something metal geared and at least 100oz/in.

Even thought the stock servo is junky plastic geared jobber, I'm pretty sure it's 150oz torque ?
+1 on RPM and aluminum shocks !
Associated aluminum shocks sell cheap on the bay and can be bought for half of TRX bigbores

traxxas bigbores are not bigbores they are even thinner than the stock ones. Alu cap with stock shocks is the right choice. BTW I've bigbores but using stocks with alu caps..

Tnx alot guys!
I think the std servo is fine for bashing yet :)

And i will buy the alu caps to my dampers one day. Just bought the Spektrum DX3S = No Money! :(

What wheels are you guys running? I run with JConcepts GooseBumbs and Pro.Line 6split Bead-Lock and the std set in reserve.

PS: Overtray is a must!

I use cheap buggy tires (mohavk) from e-bay with integy 17m adapters. I forgot it. 17mm adapters should be definitely your next upgrade

I agree about the shocks as well, but as we all know, quality comes w/a price

Oh yeah, but i didn't found any 17mm kit here in Denmark yet.
Do you think the Traxxas E-Revo 17mm kit fits on Slash?
Thinks the axel on the Revo is some MM thicker than the axel on the Slash - but not 100% sure. :)

Thanks dude :great:

Bondonutz 02.15.2010 04:03 PM

No Problem

If you go with those AKA adapters, be careful not to tighten the barrel nuts too much or they WILL crack since they're made from cast metal.
