    Just the stuff you already have and maybe drive shafts not sure if the ones on the platinum are any good and better tires for what your driving on

    If you don't have it the piece that connects from iPhone 5s to apples old connector u can probs get one on eBay

    Your English is great btw

    Stock gearing on a 4x4 Traxxas Slash is 13/54 so a 13 Tooth Pinion, and 54 Tooth Spur. So to get the +60mph, you need to go to a 19 Tooth Pinion. Just my opinion though, try it stock first because it still is super fast with a 3S lipo and stock gearing.

    Where I run mine, I actually can't go faster than what I am at (18/51) because it starts floating too much and will flip on the smallest bumps.

    I would also like to note that I know the Slash Platinum comes with an 18T pinion as well in the box but I don't know about the others. I am running the 18 Tooth Pinion with a Robinson Racing 51 Tooth Spur. So mine is actually a touch faster than the 19/54.

    I don't think so but I'm not using a TQi transmitter. I don't see how it would effect anything though.

    Shouldn't have any problems at all. I would throw it on a charger before hand and you should be good to go man! Mine usually sit for a few months during winter and they all work fine after a quick recharge in the spring.
