    My "new" baby. A two wheel slash bone stock, got her of ebay for a descent deal, the guy selling her was pretty dang cool. He actually offer a return policy and took off a few bucks on the shipping because I was close enough he didn't have to use UPS. Took her out and ran her as soon as I got the new deans plug on, and man is she a blast. Sure she's not that fast, but she's brushed with the old xl5 non lipo cut off so I didn't expect much speed. I'm runnin her on 2s lipo with an alarm so I don't toast the batts and she did a little better then I expected, and if the lipos burn out my esc or motor what better excuse to go brushless haha. I'm gonna try to get a quick and dirty vid later tonight if my batteries ever get charged ha.

    Nice Slash. I love my slash. A real fun RC to bash. I had the xl-5 and brushed motor in my slash. I have a Castle Creations Sv2 4600kv brushless system in it now and it flys.

    Thanks guys. Well I was able to get a couple more runs in last. For one of em I strapped my phone to the front bumper and went for it.

    Took it a little easy because of the phone, and it screwed with the balance of course. No editing what so ever and it's my first vid so the camera angle is a bit low but I gotta start somewhere hopin to get a real camera soon.
