wow, cool slash! I am surprised that you have not broken the stock castor blocks yet, especially on brushless. That was the first thing to break on my slash and back then it was brushed.

slash bash: haha i know, i take pride in my stock castor blocks
they are to the point where i don't want to replace them and see how long they actually last lol

bigdodge44150: Well my Monster Energy body has seen better days, my LHS actually sold me the wrong body paint to paint my car with... So as soon as I started to cut it out, the paint instantly chipped off, I instantly drove back and the manager said, "Oh well you didn't tell me it was for a body, hurr hurr hurr!" and continued to BS me, ever since, significant portions of paint have chipped off and keep chipping... so i went to this Flotek body. Today is the first day it'll be used, so i'll be able to let you know after!

indy34096: thanks a lot man

Claymore5150: Heh yea nothing like box. The car practically never ever rolls, so when it does, I stand there and go hmmm... that's weird, ha. I have yet to use it with the dual suspension reservoirs and steering mod, so i have no idea how it'll drive :P but i'm excited! the steer is maxxed mechanically, and physically can't turn anymore, your idea was practically flawless.
