E-slayer build... - 01.16.2011, 10:23 PM

So I was digging around in my rc room and came across (then wiped off) a bunch of stuff (woo hoo, tiny cars, yeah baby!!!)

Sorry, back to the lecture at hand. Basically I found a complete buggy power system and a bunch (alot) of revo parts.

I only have one spare esc laying around, and it is a quark 80airmaster. Works fine with a car radio but lacks proportional brakes. So it would have to be used with a mech brakes setup.

So I think I will build a slayer again, as I really liked the one I had. Noticed the "pro" version traxxas sells now is longer and wider (wider being good as I always thought it was a bit narrow).

So what do you guys think? I basically have a complete revo, all I should need are the arms, and pushrods/toelinks, right?

Also need a body and bumpers...

Will likely use buggy wheels and tires, as I have alot of those.

And I have a complete set of hybrid diffs, with buggy ratio internals.

Yeah at the very least the parts will be easier to keep track of now that they're assembled...

Yeah yeah, real funny Chris...

Not sure I am into 5 right now, maybe 4...

Not even sure this will end up as a slayer, might be a revo with buggy wheels. Depends on how much I want to spend, being such a cheap ass.

Its good to see again though, this time last year the forum was dead, with no builds happening...

Glad to see linc back to his old compulsive build building, rawbuns insulting, british speaking wise cracker with a wheelchair bound guy in his basement.


Glad to have you back

You may want to check with JPOPCOCK, he built one recently with a EREVO chassis and it came out very nice.

Thanks for the link honey. I like what he did, but I plan to stick with the forward only setup with mech brakes. I could wire up reverse with the 3rd channel... Mech reverse, how lame is that on an e build!!!

I may just build this with revo arms and see how it does. Hate to spend a bunch of money on slayer parts and no like it. Still need to scare up a chassis.

Well I scored a chassis for 12 bucks on ebay... Shipped. So when that comes in I will be ready. Need to get the hybrid diffs built and get the bulks assembled. When the chassis comes in I can get a motor mount built and I think I have a nitro conversion battery tray somewhere. Time to explode the revo parts on the bench!!!

And some stripped chassis pics as I received it. About as close as build pics go for this one.

I have a set of front and rear HCR aluminum bumper mounts for the Revo.
If you're interested send me a pm.
Never used them on my Gorillamaxx G3R Erevo build.

Power system for this one was a Hacker C50 13L with a Quark 80a on 5s. Getting the spring setup right was slightly challenging, this truck seemed to be sensitive to spring weights. Pretty sure I sold this truck as a roller, I might have made it into a revo though. Memory is murky on what happened to this truck.
