1Bad's slash 4x4

Post by Justinswraps » Thu Oct 22, 2015 1:46 am

Couldn't resist a deal on this slash 4x4 with gobs of rpm parts! 140 bucks for a roller and 2 bodies!!! Was going to buy a brand new one, but since I found this one I could do whatever I wanted with it right off the bat. Upgraded to Pro-Line Interco TSL super swamper tire's and J concepts Tense wheels. Brand new Vxl system, stainless screw hardware ( a must have if your me and hate rusted screws!) Last but not least a Pro-line Dodge Ram SCT body. Going to do a complete tear down and check things over and rebuild. For the amount of money I have into this, it's going to be more than worth it!

Thank you. I'm trying to avoid making stuff real nice anymore. If I do I won't run it! Just have to glue the tire's and let the taterchip rip!

Small update. Bought some mip metal shafts couple weeks ago and front and rear sway bars!!!

Now for the big update! My son who is now 6 started out with a xl5 stampede. He is mastering his driving like a champ!! I felt that it was time to upgrade him to something a little more reliable and more useful since winter is coming, his stampede doesn't get around to well in the snow. So I ended up selling my yeti to upgrade him to a slash 4x4 as well. He drove mine so well and really likes how it handles. So here's what I got him with the money I sold the yeti for. (The yeti was cool, don't get me wrong. Id rather keep my boys interest in the hobby than have the yeti any day)

Bought the truck decked out with rpm parts, rrp steal spur and threaded shocks. Would really like to upgrade the vxl system in his to the new 4 pole system. It's so much faster and smoother!!

I love these tsl tire's, might possibly get a set for the boys truck. They are a medium compound which is perfect for me.
