Yep everytime I go to the track they always say a slash would be good for me. Might have to try it sometime, but I think the class isnt going anywhere, it will be around probably forever.

OK, I bought one last week

Had my 1st go with it today using my old 2000 nicds (need to get a lipo cutoff before I use lipo)

It's now under the stairs covered in mud, I might just shower it off.

one thing to say about it....Absolutely brilliant fun, I was even using the steerwheel tranny it came with rather than my preferred medium of sticks.

Awesome.

Is anyone in the south (hampshire way) interested in racing them? I'm sure that TORCH would hold a class if enough turned up

Quite fancy one just so I can run something "different" at our local club and this looks quite tough and not so fast that it'd be a handful. What's it like on carpet with stock tyres though? (Bear in mind that my Tamiya Mini is totally undriveable on carpet even with a stock silver can motor - zero grip = spins on every corner)

Maybe depends on the carpet, ours is fairly grippy, mine was certainly driveable. Following the instructions in the manual for on road driving setup helps. I'm still the only person at our club with one, otherwise I would happily race it. It's not particuarly fast, but I love the way it handles, turns in really well, the geared diff can be a little annoying, so you need to take care on the throttle coming out of corners or the inside wheel spins up for fun. Here's mine running on our grass track last year:

Can't wait to see yours go round a 1/8 track sub, should be fun.

this class has gotten huge in the states. my local track on a tuesday night (off road carpet) 1 heat buggy, 2 heat truck and 2 heat of slash.


the races are close because the rules are box stock. its like sedan was when it started.....FUN. it is a no crying because your car got bumped class. and they are durable.

my fear is the associated version will dilute the class and ruin the "equalness of the competition".

I hope not, because I may end up running both slash and SC10 classes because Stadium Truck is diluted here,
we only had 5 last week, and 12 in slash. And at the other track all they got in electric is slash period, that's it.

I agree aith everyone here Slash's are good fun for sure. I have run mine at bury a few times now...last sunday i got it a bit more sorted and stopped it from rolling on high speed bends (lowered it right down)

Have to say it was very good - finished 2,2,2 and first in qualifiers and that was with 2wd buggies!

mine only has standard speedo with a cheap make brushless motor in it and it is fast ish

handling and drivind wise they are just so easy to drive.....

planning on up-rating next to give it some more power - think ill butcher some cells to make up a bigger pack
