All,

there have been a lot of threads recently about upgrades, a few new upgrades to market and its an area I've been very very interested recently in because I'm new to the traxxas Slash community (6 months) and been upgrading/fixing like mad since I got it.

I therefore decide to build a survey about upgrades using a free "survey monkey" account. I appreciate the scope and depth of this survey is limited but as a quick and dirty view of what a sample of the Slash community think it will do me. We can maybe talk about that and even look to expand on it here at URC.

The free survey monkey account has some limitations - 10 questions per survey and 100 response per survey - so I have created 2 parts as follows:


The Traxxas Slash 2WD Upgrades Survey - Part 1 Chassis, Protection & Drivetrain
1. Are you a racer, a basher or both?
2. How much experience do you have with the Traxxas Slash specifically?
3. Which Chassis upgrade would you recommend?
4. Which Front Bumper would you recommend?
5. Which Rear Bumper would you recommend?
6. Which transmission Upgrade would you recommend?
7. Which Drive-shaft Upgrade would you recommend?
8. Which ESC upgrade would you recommend?
9. Which Brushless Motor upgrade would you recommend?

The Traxxas Slash 2WD Upgrades Survey - Part 2 Suspension & Steering

1. Which Front Bulkhead Upgrade would you recommend?
2. Which Front Shock Tower Upgrade would you recommend?
3. Which Rear Shock Tower Upgrade would you recommend?
4. Which Suspension Arm (A-Arms) Upgrade (Front & Rear) would you recommend?
5. Which Hinge-Pin upgrade would you recommend?
6. Which Rear Castor Blocks upgrade would you recommend?
7. Which Carriers/Steering Block Upgrade would you recommend?
8. Which Steering Bell-Crank Upgrade would you recommend?
9. What shock upgrade would you recommend?
10. Comments.

All of the questions are multiple choice with a range of "standard" upgrades provided and an opportunity to add your own specific answers which are then automatically added to the available choices.

Some things you may want to know:

The surveys are password protected
The surveys are limited to one response per computer.
You can go back to previous pages in the survey and update existing responses until the survey is finished or until you have exited the survey.
After the survey is finished, you will not be able to re-enter the survey.
You can see the results including the number of recipients
Your IP address will NOT be logged.
Your own answers are limited to 100 characters of text.
I will be sharing the results and if possible the raw data to allow further analysis as survey monkey really limits what you can do on the free accounts.
This is not some sort of marketing exercise, I get nothing from it and it is not afilated with any manufacturers or suppliers.

The idea is that by the end of this we as a community will have a "consensus" of recomended upgrades that people can use however they see fit.

Before I open up the surveys for responses I'd like to gain an idea of interested parties and give you the opportunity to comment and ask questions

Thanks in anticipation, over to you.
