Racing a slash in a spec class or a open/sct is a special breed. The slash is my first hobby grade rc and I love it regardless of what others think. Eventually I want a 4x4 slash as well as the 2wd that I have now.
Amen to that!
No doubt that driving the Spec Slash has forced me to hone in on my consistency, and significantly helped improve my skills for other classes too... there is very little room for error with the Slash and it's quickly becoming an honor just to make it into the A Main as our local club is coming very close to filling a C Main full of drivers which has already become the norm for Stock Buggy.
Not sure if I already mentioned it in this thread or not, but the track I race at hosted the ROAR Region 9 Championship this past Dec and it was a 4WD Slash that took the win in the 4WD Mod SC class!
I saw a recent posting that Traxxas was gonna buy HPI (probably an April Fools joke) but it sure would be cool to see Traxxas officially grow a dedicated Race Team of drivers!
