    I picked up a slash today on an impulse buy. Originally i couldnt decide if i wanted the axial exo or a slash..but after having my wraith i decided to give a traxxas rig a try bc the past 3 times i drove my wraith ive had to fix something lol.

    First impression on a 2s battery was holy crap its pretty quick! Looking forward to getting to bash it a little on the track tomorrow.

    I believe mine has a metal drive shaft. I'll double check when I get off work though.

    Edit: yeah checked the box in my truck it came with a metal drive shaft lol

    I have the 4x4 slash that's brushless and I run a 2s lipo in her and she flys. I am afraid of the 3s lipo lol. I need to send my ESC back in to Traxxas cause the reverse is going out. Fun as all get out thou I have a track in my back yard and I race there and some inside tracks too fun

    Nice truck... welcome to Slash ownership... be prepared to want to spend money and tweek that thing...

    Here's a good thread (from another forum, hope thats ok?) - Upgrade list - Traxxas Slash 2WD @ URC Forums - essentially everything you'd like to know about upgrades and the parts available out there. The Slash appears to be one of the best catered for RC's :D

    I find that the big body and bumpers save you from most crashes. I don't race so I probably won't break as much as people that do either. For a basher is quite fun, 3s is freaking fast on these things. On my Jammin SCRT10 I do have a couple of 4s lipos, that thing just screams, I try not to use it too much with them as it gets kinda hard to control and crash more frequently heh. My 2WD Slash normally runs on 2S and it is a blast.
