A few Cons... I dont like the body or the paint scheme, seems a little lame. I have ordered a new body and plan a badass paint job. I would also like to have had factory installed lights. Not really needed but cool to have.
Over all I am more than pleased, great truck, great handling, fast, well built, and comes with a quality controller, unlike some junk that is coming with RTR vehicles.
IF YOU BUY THIS TRUCK YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.
Since owning this since Feb 2020 I have not encountered any problems except a faulty ESC. It would heat up regardless of how I was running the slash. My local shop advocated for me (which didn't take anything" and had it replaced. Yeah, it was taking 4 weeks due to world-wide issues but it now works. I still have a cover for it and runs really fast.
I think I might turn it into a buggy but we'll see.
3s lipo gets me 15ish minutes of crazy high speed runs, jumps and thrills. Couldn't be happier.
