My new 4x4 SHORT COURSE TRUCK!
« on: May 10, 2016, 12:39:09 PM »
So, after a snafu with the border rejecting a FPV Racing Quadcopter from China,  (Lipos!)???  I switched gears and ordered a new RC Truck locally instead.

Thanks to FredZ Dynamic Hobbies for allowing pre-paid custom orders with NO TAX for their closing sale thru May.  That can be a great deal depending on what you want, good savings.

I got hooked on hobby grade RC and racing thru Traxxas in the mid-90s.  Stadium Trucks, Buggies, Nitro, On-Road, TRX PRO stuff, back when Traxxas used to actually compete in RC racing, and I won my local class championships running Traxxas.  They are quite different now, recycling ancient designs and all RTR, but they still make some really cool vehicles.

My only outdoor RC basher right now is the 1:10 scale Summit.  Awesome machine, but I was craving something a little faster, smaller, and something you only need 1 batt charged up to run with.

Here I'm unboxing my new Short Course Truck. The newest Traxxas Slash 4x4 (68086-21) with LCG chassis, Stability Management (TSM) and On-Board Audio (OBA).  It's pretty awesome. More setup, upgrades, and running videos will be done later.   Thanks for watching.

First setup video is online now. Basic stuff of course, but I'm not making this for people who already know about it.

Traxxas "fastest name in radio control" slogan is put to the test.  We installed the included speed pinions and tried 3S power in our Slash 4x4s and did some SPEED RUNS.   ;D ;D ;D

The new Slash 4x4 is a beast.  ;D
Seriously tough and wicked fast on 3S.  Here are some of the new videos I've made earlier this summer.  More to come, lots of footage still in the queue.  Appreciate you watching, liking, and hopefully subscribing!  Thanks.

Superb video of unboxing Slash Truck.

Thanks, I continue to bash/race/speedrun it and it's one of the most versatile RCs I have.   I have plenty of footage in the queue and continue to make more most times I run it.   Videos all go on the Slash 4x4 playlist I setup:
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLR-xiv2hHw4ZbQWwTxB5XrsvF2rULely2

I make videos about more than just the Slash, check out everything I put on my channel.  www.youtube.com/Netcruzer

Subscribers are greatly appreciated!  My next goal is to reach 1K subs, or get a video to 100K views.
Thanks.
