    Probably not. But with those its about slow and over things. I laugh cuz my 4x4 slash has a hard time going through sand and uneven rocks.

    I'm very disappointed in you mike. So much potential that wi never be realized :p I'll make sure you get to drive my Savage next time we go somewhere..

    Just buy a slash 2wd for $130 and convert it to 4wd!
    I loved the 2 I had, but I like to go fast way to much. I used to flip my crawlers every few feet..
    Depends on what they are, but can't really go wrong for 2 batts and a charger!
    Bring um next time! Brandon and Phil were doing really good Sunday!

    Well I'm prepping for out next meet.. I got some Emaxx tires of CL for $15 today, mounted them backwards to be my poor mans sand paddles :D

    Also added an extra bump stop at each corner so I stop bottoming out.. Swapped out my soft black springs for my medium dual rate green springs. never drove off road with the green springs before, so thought I would give them a try. Dropped the body mounts an inch, and pulled the battery boxes in a quarter inch each so I can fit the body now! Lastly I adjusted my slipper since my tires are finally glued. This truck loves to do back flips now.. On Friday I plan on tuning it a bit; give it a little more reverse speed, take just a touch out of the brakes, and maybe futz with the alignment.

    I ordered some used parts on ebay from the Savage XL that are supposed to be better and stronger than my stuff, but still fit my truck. We'll see how that goes!

    Too small :p Doesn't even state what KV.
    I used to run that motor in my minis. Had a Tamtech frog with that motor in 8000kv, and street tires. Was pretty insane.
