The gearing is made for brushless, so I don't think that there would be a problem.

It won't be very practical, that's for sure. Good for straight line speed runs, that's about it.

Your saying it would have to much power or only power when the gears wind out?

One thing traxxas makes that shouldnt fail is there tranmissions. dont think that would be a concern

"The Traxxas Slash is built for extreme Velineon™ brushless horsepower (sold separately). Simply bolt it in and 7-cell speed jumps to 40+mph. Add 11.1V LiPo batteries and you have the potential to double your speed. Bigger roosts and longer hang-time are right at your fingertips. The included steel transmission gears, full ball bearings, and high-quality metal turnbuckle links are the winning setup for brushless durability.The factory-installed planetary differential is Traxxas-tough with hardened steel gears that never need adjusting! Perfect for long-lasting, all-day fun. Accessory battery hold downs are available for use with large capacity Lipo battery packs* that can extend speed and run time. Compare the durability and features to others and you’ll see that only Traxxas makes them truly brushless ready."

The problem would be traction. I don't think you'd be able to get the thing up to speed before it either flips over on it's lid or loops out.

A Slash with a Mamba 6900 in it will flip at full speed just from the air rushing under the body.

That's too much motor for a Slash. I'm running an 8.5T in mine and it's plenty of power with stock tires (for racing).

Yea its possible that it would be to much power. Like K B said, if it can flip over at topspeed that just to much. I was thinking about putting the 3.5 in a 4wd buggy, how bout that?
