Further Description/Back Story I got this in 2012 as a gift from my Grandfather. It was a bone stock Traxxas slash 2wd with brushed electronics and an old TQ radio. I converted it to Brushless about 1 1/2 years ago for enough torque to not melt motors when bashing and have the ability to go somewhat fast. This truck certainly delivers.
