Traxxas Slash 1/10 Electric 2WD Short Course Truck Kit
I received this kit during the holiday season in 2022. The directions were easy to follow and the truck worked perfectly right out of the box after a 5 or 6 hour assembly time. Overall, it's perfect for bashing or a Box Stock off road race class. With the supplied 12t 550 motor it goes real nice-but, of course, quite a lot of folks will want to go brushless......I am extremely happy with it the way it is. I had to add some shock collars to the rear to get a good ride height-but they're all supplied with the kit. I also prefer a clear body so that I can create my own paint scheme. In my opinion the RTR bodies look too toy-like for my taste. I use a 3000 mah Traxxas nimh battery and it goes for about 15 minutes on a charge. Lots of body lean make it quite realistic and I had no issues with it wanting to roll over. I suppose someone could get it to do that-but you'll have to really try to make it happen and do something radical. Having attended a Robby Gordon Super Stadium Truck race, (which I highly recommend),this truck has basically the same personality as the real ones. It's a lot like a Tamiya Grasshopper-a totally entry level kit that is so well done and fun to operate that experienced r/c people will still want to keep one for all around bashing. Nice product.

Traxxas Slash 1/10 Electric 2WD Short Course Truck Kit
This is an excellent kit in my view because:

a) Instruction manual is clear with many large illustrations.

b) The bag of parts to be used for a particular step contain ALL of the needed hardware. No need to hunt through other bags to find the part you need.

c) The shocks are already built for you - only oil (included) needs to be added. A great time saver.

d) All turnbuckles are assembled to the required length - another great time saver.

e) The body is pre cut with pre-drilled holes for body posts drilled - yet another time saver.

f) All necessary tools are included (wrenches, allen wrenches, turnbuckle wrench).

A pleasure to build.

Traxxas Slash 1/10 Electric 2WD Short Course Truck Kit
felt good to build a traxxas again and wish they did this with all there line up. this was so much easier then it was when i built my first traxxas bandit back in 97 and broke the output yoke trying to get the driveshafts on so i couldn't run it for about a week before i found the replacement. plus the shocks are together already so just adding oil to them was a easy part of the build. so yes i built a traxxas back when everything was hands on and would do it more if more of the kits cam like this one

Traxxas Slash 1/10 Electric 2WD Short Course Truck Kit
This is a really good beginner kit. Although I have plenty of experience building race brand kits I was impressed with both the Traxxas instructions and the quality control of the parts for a relatively cheap kit. I do like that the turnbuckles come together although I did have to adjust mine just a bit to get them how I wanted. I also used Associated 50wt shock oil and Associated black grease opposed to the oils provided in the kit. I did have one issue during the build, the front a-arms were hitting my bulkhead and the arms were binding, but I was able to sand the arms down somewhat to stop them from hitting. So I can't give this kit 5 stars because of that. However I would still highly recommend this kit to a first time builder.

Traxxas Slash 1/10 Electric 2WD Short Course Truck Kit
Great for a beginner looking for there first kit. Clear instructions for building and running and an easy build. Can easily be built in less that 3 hours for an experienced builder. I would recommend getting the RPM rear bearing carriers as the stock ones break somewhat easily. Lots of fun to drive and race.

Traxxas Slash 1/10 Electric 2WD Short Course Truck Kit
I am building a Slash Super Stock/Challenger Stock Car body, for Velodrome Superspeedway racing. I purchased the Slash 2wd kit,the Traxxas LCG Shassis conversion, Proline Extended body mount set and Duratrax Upshot tires.Instructions are illustrated and easy to follow. The Lcg chassis instructions are only a diagram with part numbers. The Traxxas plastic parts fit and finish are of the highest quality in the industry. Further the kit includes a full set of ball bearings and the Magnum Gearbox includes all metal gears. Also included are high quality turnbuckles to adjust the suspensions camber and tow in. I have just completed assembly and am making the final adjustments to the suspension, body mounts and electronics. It will be ready to race this week end. ; )

Traxxas Slash 1/10 Electric 2WD Short Course Truck Kit
Instructions are very clear and easy to follow. There are a couple screw sizes that are close in length so be sure to double check the sizes before you assemble at that step. The kit took me about 5 hours to put together taking my time and using hand tools. The kit is also perfect to learn how the parts are installed for easier repairs. Would recommend this kit to anyone new or old to the r/c world.

Traxxas Slash 1/10 Electric 2WD Short Course Truck Kit
I have built several kits and I truly enjoyed this one great instructions and parts to work with. Also, having built kits I was not paying attention and was surprised that it is actually a rtr in the since that all you need is a Traxxas connector battery. The radio and electronics are all included.
