Default First thoughts on traxxas slash VXL

Well over all it is a good truck right out of the box except the fact that literally within the first minute of driving it the rear shock tower broke. A quick fix with some zip ties in glue until the new part comes in is all that is holding it together now. But besides that it was all good, just kidding the tires it came with are HORRIBLEEither they dont grip at all and the car just slides all over or it traction rolls. Thoughs are my thoughts atm...

Just upgrade the shock tower to RPM and you don't have to worry about it at all.

How did you break the tower?

Upgrading the shocks is a must. First race I got hit and the shock cap came off causing me to have to pull out of the race. Buy the big bore shocks or at minimum the aluminum shock caps and you should be alright.
