Not a review. Please do not call this a review -- I haven't so much as turned the thing on. Just my first look at the thing straight out of the box. Any driving and other videos of the thing will be done once they can be done, and once they are done. Right now, everything everywhere is mud.

Sorry if this is the wrong forum.

Please do not PM (privately message) me or directly address forum threads towards me with questions that can be answered by the rest of the URC community. Most questions asked of me directly can be answered sooner & better by the URC community.

Due to circumstances beyond my control, I can only respond to important urgent, business-related, or security-related private messages. I cannot give personal diagnostic or product advice via PM. Please utilize the tremendous resource that is the entire URC community. Thank you for your understanding.

Ohh you finally got a nitro that I know of. Nice. Curious to see how it performs on the track.

The antenna tube looked like a 72mhz one from the old radio. The antenna did not look 2.4 length even though it was. Weird.

I am interested to see how this performs. I sold off all my nitros a few years ago except my jato but nitro SC might be fun.

My sons rustler vxl came with 2.4 ghz but it included a long antenna tube in the packaging. I had to cut it down to size. It was nice though cause I got to keep the extra tube to cut and use for the future.

With all the old-school touches, I'm wondering if maybe Traxxas broke open some unsold Nitro Rustler kits to get parts for the Slash. Or maybe they already have the assembly process set up for the old truck and are just modifying it with the Slash-specific parts.

Cool. Looking forward to the driving footage and review!

I kinda understand the non-waterproof servos as a way to keep the pricepoint down. The phillips hardware is just bizarre to me though. I can't really see how it would save cost vs. their more standardized (at this point) hex hardware.

Hmm, maybe? I can't imagine they would have much Nitro Rustler inventory vs. how many Nitro Slashes they hope to sell though, such that they would make a design decision based on that.

Also, I'm very curious to see how Traxxas (any other RTRs for that matter) are assembled in a factory. I wonder how easy it would be to change an assembly process. My uniformed opinion is that changing something like fastener head type would be pretty easy.
