    I love the end of your vid, so cool... You may want to place a body with better aerodynamics on there, to help prevent the lifting effect...

    awesome stuff mate. maybe jacking the rear up and lowering the front will also help stop it lifting. :psychotic:

    Any idea what sort of speed you were hitting?

    Its really hard to say, I have had it as fast as it could go stock with the optional 18t pinion, traxxas says thats 65+. I can say it was alot faster than that!

    I just ordered new a arms, A stainless steel bearing kit, and a new body, i got the JConcepts Illuzion BAJR Slash Desert Body. Im not sure what color it will be yet. i think it should be alot better then the current one. Im hopeing for some more speed runs soon( hopefuly less crashing!!!)

    try using a lighter oil in the rear diff and a heavier one in the front I also strongly suggest either using a set of wideners or try some jato arms will need to cut down the diff cases a little though that and get creative with the suspension

    Short update!

    Still waiting for the lcg frame to be in stock. Ive tweaked the esc programing. Ive tweaked the suspension. Ive installed stainless steel bearings. And Ive painted and run with the new body, Way better!! Now i need a front shock tower!! i hit my self in the leg with the slash and it broke the part of the tower that holds the upper suspention link. Needless to say MY LEG HURTS!!!!! Here are a few pics with the new body!! Im going to lower the body as far as i posably can.

    It sure doesnt like to go strait! Ive been looking in to upgrading the steering linkage, and the steering blocks. Its got too much slop in the steering. It it was a platnium model and already has lots of aluminum upgrades, that was nice! But there all loose!

    Ive been looking in to gps's and radar guns, But im a little low on funds right now, it will happen sooner or later!
