gnrkenny, your avatar pic: wing, Badjr shell on a Slash & sc tires - so why 1/8 scale tires? Did you have a change in tire preference? I like sc tires - esp. PL Trenchers

Decided to revive this thread. Are there any updates now, a year later? I know that you could definetly add TBR Bumpers to the list. Ask DrJVogel about them.

the only aluminum upgrades that add any real weight is the bulkhead. i held the strc carriers front and rear in one hand and the plastics ones in the other there isn't very much weight difference along with the shock towers.by doing this you wont slip as much also to each their own but i like my car planted to the ground.

Man, I think that this Slash is going to be a MAJOR money sink.

I have already found so many things that I want for it...it's ridiculous.

I may be dragging this thread back from the darkness of time but i'm a newbie as mentioned above and this has helped me now end

Thanks to those that contributed to this thread and convinced me that although the Slash is never going to be a competitive racer it is exactly what i am looking for !

Well... the Traxxas F-150 Raptor based on the Slash anyway...

Just a note on the G-Made shocks... i have found them available from JunFac for $31.00 a pair... is this a good price?
