Default The evolution of my Traxxas Slash

Have had my slash forever but never had a thread on it, I did document a bunch of stuff though so here we go, might have some more plans for this thing soon.

First addition was a set of CAC's from RPP, these are the 2.2 x 2.2 wheels and are so nice. First I drilled two holes for air:



Then I boiled the stock wheels and tires for five minutes each to get the tires off. Here they are mounted up to the new CAC's:



I think these are great wheels, they look nice, are an innovative design and easy to mount:

ok something looks funny



well there's your problem:


(I guess 3-4 ft airs on asphalt aren't good for it)

picked up some RPM gear to get it fixed up, these are nice pieces, way better than stock

I couldnt find the caster blocks and i need to get some shock towers on this beast...

I ordered up some RPM front and rear shock towers and caster blocks. I also changed the shock oil to 35 up front and 45 wt in the rear.



name the hi-lift scale item in this pic...



I also was luck enough to find the new proline body at my LHS







sticks out too far?

Currently this truck has other mods not shown in the above pics, including:

- Traxxas VXL brushless motor and ESC
- Traxxas big bore aluminum shocks
- MIP drive shafts
- Proline switch tires (got some before they went to 2.2 x 3.0)

Looks good! I just bought a VXL system and am very happy with it. How do those big bores hold up?
