Ok, more cool updates.
My strc pin set got here monday (03/20/17) and my slash body arrived yesterday (3/24/17).
I went ahead and installed the pin set, slipper eliminator and the motor. I needed to make wire extensions since the esc and motor wires were too short.
The slipper is easy to install. All you need to to do is remove the slipper set up behind the spur and leave only the crosspin in the diff shaft (see photos).
My set up:
Servo - Align DS615
Motor - Vega Power 3210kv 2pole (rebranded Himoto I think)
ESC - XVL-3s (2pole older version)
Body - Stock
Tires/Wheels - Dynamite Shootouts/Dynamite Wheels.
I did take a short test run and setting the gear mesh and slipper. The truck did well considering I ran in a parking lot for a few minutes. I did however, notice the truck ran somewhat smooth. I can only assume the slipper eliminator is causing it as many people I asked stated this too.
More to come.
