I had my car out once this year, after doing some tuning, fried the ESC after about 20 minutes of running even with a fan on it.. LOL it's a BEAST - I couldn't top it out on my road.. so I did a trade for another slash that I can't resell so I'm looking into parting it out and making another one of these! Here is the plan -

Both with be matched to the first and add these parts to both-

Castle SV3 5700kv on 3s power
2075 servos
HPI 2.4 radio's (like them for manual trim controls)
Parma Nova body
Parma Demon body (new one)

edited just now -
Well plans changed - and came up with new ideas! Mostly to save money and make a better chassis(s)..

Redesigning the wheelie bar system (going to be simple and yet a work of art LOL)
Getting 2 SV3 ESC's and running the current AE 3300kv motors
2 RC10's, 2 Losi's, 2 B4.1 Worlds, TLT-1 Grave Digger,
