Man this slash is awesome! I can't believe it goes so fast on 2s. I know my buggy and couple of truggies were heavier but I think the acceleration and top speed on this is comparable to those vehicles on 4s. It flies pretty good too on the little ramps I have (I have to be getting over 15' easy... Never measured just guesstimating) The pro lines are okay in the grass when it's cut but it would be nice to eliminate some spin out when taking off.

Sweet, glad you like it. I can understand, when I did run it on grass I never worried about spin out.

Imagine that truck on 4s and with a 4062, it was fun while it lasted but It tore to much up.

Put some zip ties on your tires. Looped through the wheel and over the tread, like tire chains. I've seen videos. Superb on grass.

Rofl!!! Awesome idea considering I've got zip ties for days. That would be a fun experiment just to say I did it!
