building the van phalen slash 4x4 and didnt realize it....

Post  drebies on Tue Aug 10, 2010 10:30 am

ive been working on my slash 4x4 for a few weeks now...i picked up the new magazine with short course special...and it has a slash 4x4 build called the van phallen...the truck is painted like eddie van halens guitar....anyway i was reading thru the list of parts and besides the electronics i was building this exact same truck.
i have already installed all the rpm parts....and i ordered about 250$ worth of strc aluminum parts....and yes strc is quality aluminum....believe me i checked.
robinson racing slipper clutch...mip cvd's
i also scored this...check it out

i thought it was pretty awesome looking especially with the gun metal bellcrank on the way....but will certainly protect and give more support....fun stuff
i will be putting up pics as soon as i get the parts in the mail....and i have an exotek mini t build underway....so much to do....soooo little time
oh and hpi mini trophy...and both new micros from losi our coming my way in the next few weeks....
