Default Why did i buy a slash 4x4?

So i was looking at my slash, just hanging there on the wall, 10 different parts broken at once, and i thought to myself, WHAT WAS I THINKING?! and then i went on AMain, and saw the Ofna Jammin SCRT-10, and i was like HALLELUJAH! I NEED ONE OF THOSE THINGS. I am currently accepting donations.

you must treat your slash like sh*t for it to be broken in ten places.

Agreed, If the slash isn't durable enough then the ofna is will be like a piece of tissue paper. Nothing wrong with the ofna but when it comes down to punishment the slash is the hands down winner.......BB

Ahhh, I see. The ofna will not like that beating, return it or go buy a few more so you will have spare parts. .......BB

Thumbs up

The jammin parts wont wear down like the slash parts but they will break just as fast with this kind of punnishment. Maybe try a landing ramp?

1st of all, i would never ever do this again unless amain has another video contest. secondly, where would i put this landing ramp? with a jump that big, landing on the backside of a piece of plywood isnt the easiest thing to do...

I bought one earlier this year for a sc only race. Dumped every blue part I could get my hands on with a couple thunderpower 50c batteries. Swapped the esc and motor for a castle mmp and 5900kv engine with upgrade skin and then they cncelled the race. I have faced it a handful of times and ended up with Losi 8ight shocks on it. It's faster than I know what to do with but it sits there too I feel your pain.
