And like an earlier poster said, according to rules of this forum (read the second thread from the top of the page if need be), this belongs in the pre-existing 4x4slash theed.
Watch out guys, it's the internet police

Seriously though, there is nothing Slash about this truck. Having it's own thread would be alright.

How did you do it for 400? The first 3 things on your list would be 300. Did u buy the stuff used?

Ya i pieced it together by searching forums and ebay... Also I have a friend who sells electronics so he is able to get stuff at whole sale... If you didn't know already the price of RC stuff or any electronics for that matter is a ridicoulous mark up for retail like a 80%...

I can, and there is no TRCE Slash thread.

Anyways, I bought a roller with ALL of the TRCE upgrades for $450. It had only seen 4 race nights on carpet. Also has Avid Ceramic bearings all the way around.

You lost all your credibility with that. Electronics are one of the least marked up products in RC. The market avg. is about 20%, if that.

And what's a "theed"?

Why do you act like it's a yoohoo-measuring contest? Feeling insecure?

I also don't feel the need to tell everyone who I'm spotting for. Big Whoops.

TRCE does NOT manufacture the slash.!

Using your logic you need to also start a "Avid slash " three, and a "AE slash" thread - and then everybody else that's added an aftermarket part from any other manufacturer can start needless extra threads too..... which is why the have thread #2 stickied at the top of the page (to stop people from doing precisely what you've done).

Definitely not a slash.

I meant "thread," obviously.
Have you never seen a typo before?
