RC How To:
Traxxas Slash Brushless Upgrade - 3
The only thing left was to install the setup into the Slash. I originally thought about installing the ESC where the old one came out, but the wires that came with the setup were very long and I didn't have any bullets that small to shorten the wires. I will eventually fix this and use only as much as needed.
Putting it on the opposite side of the Slash from the receiver would help balance the truck a little as well.
Ran the wires up to the esc and used a shrink tube to help contain the long wires.
The motor was as simple as two screws and the pinion and setting the gear mesh.
For the price this was a perfect system to upgrade the kiddo's Slash. I am sure he'll want a 4WD one soon and I'll be able to pop this right in if needed. Great speed and plenty of torque for all 1:10 short-course trucks.
