Good stuff!!!!

Matt......I do agree on this subject concerning the 4wd slash....but I must say that when they started the SCT class with the slash they made a great move, affordable for anyone interested in quality (by quality I mean kits that you cannot buy at radio shack or wal-mart...not traxxas in particular) RC racing and they are a blast to drive. Also with the class remaining spec there is a lot of good close racing. last weekend at Lost Creek the top 4 SCT finished within 25ft of each other....3 slashes and a strike, one of the closest races I have ever seen where the top 4 finishers were within a second of each other (other then carpet oval). Makes for some exciting racing!!

ok you got me on needing an engine.mine blew.but i wanted to make the race at lcrc...so i got hooked up with one.
im buying a sct off of boyles.but would need a battery...i have old nimh but dont know how good they will work.
and as for the rest of that shit.
i said i wouldnt make it there untill feb...untill i could afford to get the things i want.its other people offering me to use there shit.so dont make it sound like i try to bumb everything.
just figured i would explain myself.
and by the way you totally sounded like a DICK asking this question.

Well, yes and no.....it runs!!!! +1 for me, on the other hand the servo is off center and before you even say thats easy to fix, its not that it is hard to fix, the problem is I have 3 freakin jobs that all of a sudden have me swamped. I have my regular 8-5 were I sit around and look dumb all day but I gotta work there for the "real" pay. Then I have a lawn mower in my shop that "just dont mow snow like it used to" and it needs new piston rings and he wants it by saturday. THENNNNN my contractor friend decided he needed "simple" blue prints drawn for a garage that he is building and needs them by friday. So yes its easy to fix, finding time to git r done before sunday might be a challenge...but the mod truck and slash w/the new weapon are all ready to go.....off to the blue prints!!!

Rob thanks for the videos, it's nice to see them back again!

Brent, I know all about 15 jobs, I lean on a shovel for 8 hours then go home and hang with my 2 daughters, while attempting the "home renovation thing"!!! It SUCKS!!!!

I am selling everthing I own for a TRAXXAS 4X4 SLASH!

Matt, If you want a battery to run Suday, I can hook you up with one.

And you have a PM.
