Man, that brings back memories!

I took that thing apart and put it back together 1000 times I bet! (just like every other kid)

That chassis was state of the art! lol.

I like that they upgraded the axles. I would get rid of the bushing and go full bearings.

Muhahahaha!

Stability control! That is sweet!

I have 4 Traxxas slash trucks (one for me and my 3 kids).

That might come in handy in the future.

I use lippos but stock motors, they're fast enough.

Dig the Frog... I had a couple Tamiyas myself. Funny we all relate to this. haha

And thanks for posting about the Traxxas TSM.. That would possibly make me able to control the Traxxas collection me and my kids have.. A slash 2wd, a slash 4wd, and the slash 4wd with the Robbie Gordon Gordini body on it.

That Traxxas Rustler was cool too.

I have the slash 4x4 and the M41 catermeran, but I still love the old stuff! You see Traxxas everyday but it’s not everyday you see the old tamiyas

Everything is ready RTR nowadays, I used to love that anticipation while building a kit.
