I picked up a new Slash 2wd F-150 Raptor. Wanted something that goes fast. Love my crawlers but needed something fast haha. Already throwing RPM parts on, and upgraded to VXL-3 brushless system.

here are some pics. floor is messy. working on 3 RCs at once hahah.

I have that same body. WIth a 3s lipo mine vxl3 will do about 35-40 with my phone strapped on as a gps. It was faster with the other racing system I had (not waterproof though), but I eventually smoked the motor with wrong gearing and then overloaded the esc, but I was pushing about 50mph when it would get too much air under the lid and flip. I could push that up to 55mph wiht a little weight in the nose, but it was hard to control.
