Traxxas Slash Improvements
I have found some weak points about the slash that could be fixed, and I was wondering if any of you fixed some spots on the slash as well. Does anyone want to share some tips?
I have a tip for everyone, the gear cover on the slash has a hole by the driveshaft. I think that is what is letting all the dirt in. So, with some help from my dad, and the idea from a friend, I bought the RPM Traxxas Rustler gear cover and put it on the slash. My buddy did this and the motor shaft wore a hole through the cover, so when I did it, I cut it a little bit shorter. That made room for the cover to fit over it.
But when I went to put the cover on, I noticed that a piece of plastic surrounding a screw was bumping into the cover, thus making the holes in the gear cover, unable to line up with the holes in the transmission case.
This made me take the rear bumper of by only 6 screws, and just dremeled out the exces plastic by the screw.
The gear cover fits perfectly now. I have not yet run it, but plan to today.
If anyone else has tips, please share. Thanks.
Rule #1: Never let little kids drive fast cars unless you ask them if they know how to drive and they say yes.
Rule #2: Little kids are liars. Don't let them drive anyway.
