SURE... It can be fast... But it definitely won't handle like a GT. Plus, 2wd... wheelies all day... GTs just stick! Slash is probably on of the worst canidates to do its NO LCG design and 2wd will do wheelies to much for my taste. But yeah, it will still be fast, depending on your interpretation of FAST.

That would be a good thing to do for the gt light class using the 4x4 short course truck and the 2wd short course truck to make a few more classes.. I already have been working on one and will have it at the corona race this sunday.

I did a 4wd Slash and it came out great. Once you slam it to the ground my didn't have any issue with lifting the front tires.

This was my first day on the track. I have since added sway bars and it handles better but I am still a weak driver.

What is that horrible whining noice I keep hearing throughout the video......oh wait, that's nitro.

Hey Bro, you rig looks sweet. What lid did you put on it?? It looks like a smaller GT8. Nice job!!!! Isn't there a LCG chassis for the Slash 4X4 now? I bet if you used that it would really improve the rigs handling. It didn't look bad but it can only get better.

Use the low CG chassis.To make it work better.

I wouldn't expect huge speed gains but it would be lighter and probably a little more aerodynamic (bottom of chassis)
