TRAXXAS SLASH DRAG TRUCK

DANIEL PORTER PHILADEL­PHIA, PA

RC Car Action - - READERS’ RIDES -

Daniel runs his Drag Slash 2WD so that he can use the stag­gered­size wheels, but he started with the 4X4 ver­sion be­cause he tells us he likes the feel of the more bal­anced weight of the 4X4 chas­sis. Get­ting those meaty GRP rear tires mov­ing is a Cas­tle Cre­ations MM2 speed con­trol and a Po­sei­don 2650KV mo­tor. He also in­stalled a Cas­tle BEC and Cap­pack to make sure his con­trols stay fully pow­ered when mak­ing speed runs. E-revo shocks keep the ex­tra weight un­der con­trol, while an RC Reaper wheelie bar and a home­made rear wing keep it planted. MIP X-duty axles (nar­rowed in the rear) and a Te­kno big-bore cen­ter drive­shaft are used to han­dle the ex­tra power.
