Default The Outlaw for the Traxxas Slash

This new chassis kit will improve handling and have less rollovers.

Click for The Outlaw

I am going to get one of these.

$40 maybe, but $85 is stupid . the truck costs $189 and this kind of defeats the whole idea of a scale vehicle. if you want tighter handling get a stadiom truck ,leave the slash stock

this could be used to race the slash against the SC10, as that has a flat bottomed chassis. I see no other useage for it though, especially if you are racing spec class.

Exactly. This isn't too far from what I proposed in the SC10 thread, that if Traxxas wanted to they could release a "Pro" Slash that uses a Rustler-based chassis instead of the Stampede.

The Outlaw might take that concept a few steps farther than simply that, but if you're gonna be serious about it...

Your right, if it was cheaper I wouldn't hesitate with buying it, but right now with my money situation, what the price is right now is a little too much for me too afford.

i spoke with jamie from fastlane machine in early jan. about something similiar.last time i talked to him it should have been done,not sure if he has made any yet.his other chassis' are around $65,so they would be a little cheaper probably.might be worth a second look now with the sc10 coming out.

They should do a similar chassis with narrower sides specifically for the stampede. I wish they would have done this instead of the original outlaw for the stampede

This is a response from the President of Thunder Tech as to why it costs $85.

"Our original Outlaw chassis for the Stampede sold for $75 in G10 and $125 in Carbon Fiber. That was even a cheaper truck and we sold a bunch of those. A lot more thought went into this design that I think should warrent an extra 10."

Well, Mr Thunder Tech good luck with that! Just because alot of thought went into something doesnt automatically equal dollars. The materials used do not warrant the high cost. If this were a 2.5mm carbon plates, then yes. Sorry, I'll wait for GPM, or Intigy to copy this for half the cost.

I just ordered one of these, I'm betting that after the AE version comes out and every track has to let them on... and later decides to let mod slash come in just to compete, and this chassis goes back-order that I could let it go for 110.00, well it's better risk than the stock market right now anyway I could always install it and have fun instead.

I think about a lot of stuff but it doesn't mean I get paid extra for it.

Saw one of these kits on a truck last weekend, first lap a turnmarshall stepped on it untangling a typical slashrace pileup and broke both the upper and lower chassis plates. What a POS.

That's BS!!
Maybe if you're one of the ones that conveniently gets the easy corner every time or you just stand there and do nothing but watch the race, but work a high action spot where you have to work at it and it inevitably happens to everyone.
