    search the forums to see what diff fluids people use in em lol that was just a guess cuz in my 8th scale i run 5k-5k-3k in my diffs so i figured something thick would be good for bashing lol

    i have a slash 4x4 and im thinking of selling it. me and a few friends got super into it and are over it now. i got like 3 or 4 lipo batteries and 2 lipo chargers and i upgraded the front things to the blue metal things and i have a set of the proline bowties i think? and i got a pinion gear that supposedly makes it go faster. as you can tell i know pretty much nothing about rc cars haha. so based on that info what do you think i could get for it?

    $350ish based on condition. Depends on the chargers and batteries too.

    Just get on craigslist and see what similar slashes are going for.

    scx10 = smaller tires, less suspension travel, less ground clearance, more scale

    wraith = bigger tires, more travel, more ground clearance

    Really depends on if what terrain you are going to use it on and also whether you want a scale truck or a rock buggy. I went with the wraith because I wanted a bigger truck and more ground clearance. Plus I love the looks of the killer cage!! Even though I chopped part of mine off... haha. Mine's actually for sale if you are interested. Lots of upgrades and extra parts.

    Also, picking up a mamba max pro tomorrow to run my tekin sc4x! Gonna be one fast slash! Can't wait for the traxxas lcg kit to come in stock at my hobby shop too.

    the little 1/16 erevo came today, came with some extras.

    pulled the wheels off, did a quick check and put some new wheels on then tested it out, its funner then the 1/16 summit imo
