Cool truck. I race 1/8th and 1/10th scale electric off-road at a local track, but with COVID my friends are really trying to convince me to get into the crawling. Pretty popular around here. Have fun.

I bought the truck not really for crawling rocks but when the terrain is not solid. If I want to take it to the beach, I know it will be able to handle the terrain without issue.

I thought I was into it lol. So I bought a Traxxas rustler 4x4 stadium truck and it was fun but my passion is in the sky. It was a beast of a truck though I was definitely impressed at what it could do. I would definitely recommend it though for anybody that’d into hobby grade trucks.

I've got a Losi 5ive-T 2.0 but don't get to run it much as it's too big
From a crawler perspective I have a HPI Venture FJ Cruiser and the Hobau DC-1

I collect Kyosho Inferno GT2 touring and DRX rally cars both nitro and ep
and play with 1/5 ep motorbikes

There is probably more tinkering with the land based stuff as most of it can get up to 80mph
Also more risk of taking out the legs, the Losi weighs 35lbs and at 30mph in stock it's pretty dangerous

That truck seem to cost a lot of money if it's weight that much. The one I bought in Amazon, only weight 1350grm.

The Losi is 1/5th scale and it has a 32cc gas motor which is heavy

My friend is really into the Traxxas trucks. He owns a 6s Xmaxx, a Stampede, and an E-Revo. He drives them hard and has some extreme fun with them! I've driven them and they are tons of fun to play with. I've brought up the idea of installing the DJI FPV system on the trucks for racing purposes. If you think about it, Traxxas is the best of R/C cars and trucks, and DJI is the best of camera systems and drones. If you combine the two, you could make a truly mean machine!

I have a Slash 4x4 that thinks it's an airplane every time I squeeze the trigger lol



Haven't touched it in years, but it's got a Castle motor upgrade and hit 80+ on 4S




Takes quite a beating

Cool videos. That’s a lot of power running through a slash. I’m running a 1900kv and 4s in my buggy’s and 4300kv/2s in my Tekno SCT. Can’t imagine either of those in my Slash. How’d you mount the camera in the slash.

I used a TRA6840 GoPro mount and added a couple of roll bars made up of bent stainless steel rods
