    While cleaning up came across this decal someone I knew many years ago plotted for me, unfortunately not in mirror image so only on this side of my Slash

    My 4th run, am still an RC Noob

    My RC buddy Guido's Slash and mine on a sunny but cold and windy Tuesday, April 2nd 2013 in Zaandam (near Amsterdam), the Netherlands, Europe.

    We had fun this afternoon, pitty the off-road track we went to first was occupied.

    We switched to road tires and went to a parking lot and after that went to a nearby soccer training field where riding w. road tires felt like ice skating ;-)

    Both cars with a Ford lexan body

    Guido's Green Slash: Pro-Line Ford F 150 Raptor Flo Tec body

    My Red Slash: Jconcepts Illuzion 2012 Ford F250 Superduty XLT

    I'm a noob myself man and I like your videos, and your editing. I'm on the hunt for a slash 4x4 myself. I have a 2wd brushed wish I spent extra money for the Velineon system. Truck looks good, was the motor overheating thats why you installed the fan or is it a just-in-case thing.

    Thanks RdTripp

    The motor did get more than warm after the first pack, it's a necessary ad-on to put a fan on the esc and the motor.
    Allready had the esc fan on it, installed the motor fan the day after the first run on 3s lipo.
