Traxxas Slash 4×4 – Short Course

This is my Traxxas Slash 4×4 Short Course truck.

I bought this truck used along with tons of tools and spare parts. From what I can best figure the truck started its life as the Ultimate but some components were modified by the original owner. I’ve since made my own modifications and swapped tons of parts. The truck uses stock VXL Motor and ESC for now. The current shock config seems to work very well for light off-road action on clay track. For transmission I’m still using the slipper clutch tightened at 1/4 turn out.
