Hi Everyone,

I am ready to get my first Slash. I have put together my list of parts and I would like to get some opinions and thoughts. Will I have any compatibility issue if I decide to upgrade to brushless at a later date?

Here is what I have decided upon.

Slash 4x2.

HobbyStar 8000mAhr 7.4V, 2S 100C Hardcase LiPo battery
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0198XP8U6...I1PYVC7S8BNFS6

Thunder AC680 Charger

Dynamite Startup Tool set
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B002JSV4M4...I2N2RSB5JW2Z18

I just want to make sure I am not making any bad decisions. I am so psyched to get my Slash!

Thank you all for the time. Have a great day!


Respectfully,

George D,

You are off to a great start with a slash. Fun truck. For tools, I would grab quality hex drivers like Hudy. They make a HUGE difference when it comes to getting those tiny screws out without rounding.

The battery may be a bit of an overkill. Check out these packs:http://www.valuehobby.com/power-syst...city_range=180

Thunder is a nice charger for the price.

PS stay away from excessive bling with the Slash. All I use are aluminum castors, shock caps, RPM clutch cover and arms. The RPM offset compensating arm lets you run rear tires all around.

Yup this is like the third thread I've seen in a few days. Kind of makes you think URC really is dying.

+1 for MIP tools! SMC lipo batteries are also nice for the price.

Dynamite has higher quality tools than that set. I bought the singles 1 at a time for about 7$ a piece and have been using them for years. That tool set will not last too long mine was garbage.

My LHS uses the dynamite tools that have red, knurled metal handles. They are quite good.
