hay guys all i can say is if you build one of these back slashes you will like the way it handles. i let a couple of 1/8 scalers drive it in practice and the could not get over how well it handled. they were keeping up with 1/8 th eletric buggys and passing them. you do not know how many people think it is my 1/8 th buggy for my 1/8th nitro has the same body. this thing has a ton of steering. i can take it to different tracks and run it and all i change is tires and it still handles the same. if any one is interested in my latest set i will post later.

It is really neat. there is a class for them at www.havefunhobbies.com it is cool to see a full heat of them on the track.
i completely agree there i put buggy wheels on my slash and it never flips on the turns anymore here is a couple pics of it a couple weeks ago...it now has a vxl system in it and a thundertech chassis...im considering making one of these
