Math Help for 9th and 10th Grade Math

Math

How to Find Slope and Average Slope

Slope

Slope is the steepness of a line in a linear graph.

Step 1.

Find two points on a graph

Step 2.

Plug the points in the equation: (y(2) – y(1))/(x(2)-x(1))

Step 3.

Simplify

Ex.

(3,2) and (6, 3)  (3-2)/(6-3), 1/3

Average Slope

Average slope is the steepness in a segment of a line in exponential, quadratic, and cube root equations. In linear equations, its just slope.

Step 1.

Find two points on a graph

Step 2.

Plug the points in (y(2) – y(1))/(x(2)-x(1))

Step 3.

Simplify

Ex.

(3,2) and (6, 3)  (3-2)/(6-3), 1/3

Note: Average slope varies based on the points of data.

Domain and Range

Domain

Domain is the set of points and lines connected to those points.

Have one of these sets for each line that is separated from another. Even counting lines above or below it.

Mark filled in points with “[,]” and hollow points with “(,).”

A hollow point means it never hits the actual point.

Put the x-values in between the comma and the enclosures.

Ex.

Image result for domain and range

In the Graph above, the domain would be: (-3,1]

This is because it starts at -3, but doesn’t touch -3, and ends at 1.

Domain always goes left-to-right.

Range

The same rules apply to range, but it is low-to-high, not left-to-right

In the same image, the range would be: [-4,0)

This is because it starts at -4, which is filled in, and ends at 0, which isn’t filled in.

Quadratic Equations and How to Solve Them

Identifying a Quadratic Equation

A quadratic equation is an equation that involves a x^2 in it.

A formula for one is ax^2+bx+c.

An example is: x^2-3x-4

How to Solve Quadratic Equations

Image result for quadratic equation

The best way to solve them is using the formula in the picture above.

In this example, a=1, b=-1, and c=-2.

We can solve this quadratic equation by using something known as the quadratic formula.

Image result for quadratic equation

By plugging in the numbers, we get two answers.

They are, x=-1 and x=2

Imaginary Numbers

Imaginary Numbers are the square root of a negative number.

For example. Sqrt(-2) doesn’t work because you can’t multiply a number by itself and get -2.

Mathematicians solved this problem by inventing a new “number.”

Say hello to “i”

i is equal to the square root of -1.

Fun, right?

These are used with quadratic functions when the are no x-intercepts.

Lets get back into easier math now.

Functions

Functions are used when there are multiple graphs on one coordinate plane.

They are formatted as f(x), m(x), b(x), etc.

A function can only be a function if there are  not two y’s in one x. In other words, one x-value cannot equal two, different y-values.

This is it about functions.

Radicals

Woo

Radicals are ways to express non-perfect squares.

Ex.

Image result for radicals in math

In this example, radicals are expressed like a number in a square root sign. Since this number is not a perfect square, this is the only way we can express it exactly. This applies to other non-square numbers, too.

You can also add, subtract, multiply, and divide radicals as well.

Radicals in text look like this.

Sqrt(2)

This symbolizes the square root of two and I’m going to use this format throughout the rest of this lesson.

Some radicals also look like this.

3sqrt(2)

This symbolizes 3 times the square root of two.

Adding/Subtracting radicals

Adding

You can only add radicals that have the same base.

Ex.

3sqrt(2)+5sqrt(2)

We can simplify this into 8sqrt(2) because 3+5=8 and we don’t change the sqrt(2).

Subtracting

We can also subtract radicals the same way

Ex.

5sqrt(2)-3sqrt(2)

We can simplify this into 2sqrt(2) because 5-3 is 2 and so on. By the way, 2sqrt(2) is equal to sqrt(8). More on that later.

Note

You cannot add or subtract 3sqrt(2) and 5sqrt(3) because they do not have the same base.

Multiplying Radicals

Multiplying

This is a bit trickier.

Ex.

3sqrt(2)*5sqrt(2)

3sqrt(2) can also be sqrt(18) and 5sqrt(2) can also be sqrt(50). In total, it simplifies to sqrt(18*50) which is also sqrt(900). Now you factor out two like terms since its a Square root. You can factor out 3 two times, 5 two times, and 2 two times. Now you multiply them together and put them in front of the square root, if there is still numbers inside. If all the numbers are gone, you get rid of sqrt(~) completely. 3*5*2 is equal to 30, so 3sqrt(2)*5sqrt(2) is equal to 30.

Another way to multiply them is to multiply the base with the base and the front with the other front. 3*5 and sqrt(2)*sqrt(2)

You can also multiply radicals that look like this:

3sqrt(2)*3sqrt(5)

You multiply the different numbers together. 3*3, 5*2, then you plug them in.

3*3sqrt(5*2) or also 9sqrt(10)

Matrices

One of the worst things in math, and don’t get me wrong. I love math, except this.

If you don’t know what a matrix is in math, not the movie, they look like this.

Image result for single matrix math

Matrices themselves don’t look bad, but they  represent systems of equations.

You can multiply them. You can divide them. Heck, you can even square and cube them, along with root them.

I’m not going to cover them as much, but I will tell you how to add, subtract, and multiply them. I’m not going to show how to divide them because that is a whole other story.

Adding/Subtracting Matrices

Image result for adding matrices

In the above image, it has an addition problem with matrices. This is the simplest part of matrices. Just add the paces together. 1+3=4, -5+2=-3, 4+(-2)=2, and 2+1=3. Them put them in the correct places as they were before.

You can do the same thing with subtraction. Just instead of adding them, subtract them. 1-3=-2, -5-2=-7, 4-(-2)=6, and 2-1=1. Them put them in their places just like before. Just like that, your finished.

Multiplying Matrices

This is where it gets complex, and we aren’t even at division yet.

Image result for multiplying matrices

Look at the above image. It sort of shows you how to do it, but not completely.

First find the square you want to find. In this case, there is 12.

Second multiply the numbers that are farthest away from that cell together. I know that didn’t make sense so look at the picture. To get that yellow orb, multiply a_1,1 with b_1,2 to get that yellow orb. Then multiply a_1,2 with b_2,2. Do you see why I used those positions.

Third, and finally, add up the products and put them in that square.

Complex Numbers

Complex numbers are all numbers ever created, even imaginary ones. The ones that I am going to talk about are numbers that are only complex.

Remember i, well that’s going to be used a lot.

One example of this is 3+4i. This is only complex because it is a real number with an imaginary number. Guess what, you can add, subtract, multiply, and divide these too.

Ugh

Nah, I’m kidding. Their not that bad. Just division.

Addition/Subtraction

To add and subtract these, just combine like terms.

(3+4i)+(7-2i)

This is simple. Just take 3+7 and 4i-2i. Then add them together.

When you are done, you get 10+2i

Multiplication

This is a bit harder, but not by a lot.

(3+4i)*(7-2i)

This includes a bigger step-by-step process.

First, distribute the 3 to (7-2i), then distribute the 4i.

3(7-2i)+4i(7-2i)

21-6i+28i+8

Don’t forget i^2 is negative 1 because i is sqrt(-1).

Then, combine like terms.

29+22i

Division

Let’s start with this problem here.

Image result for complex number division problems

First multiply both sides by the inverse of the denominator.

Ex.

((-23+11i)*(5-i))/((5+i)*(5-i))

Then, simplify

Ex.

(-104+78i)/26

(-104/26)+(78/26)i

That’s all I’m doing for this post.

Look out in the future for further help

Painting Nails with At Home tools – low cost

Painting Nails at home – low cost

People add pictures and videos of extravagant nail designs and show fancy tools they use to create straight lines or round circles. But some of these items are expensive if you want a good, lasting product.

Ombre:

 I had bought a packet of sponges and they cost ten dollars. For the time being, it was worth it.

Then I ran out.

Instead of buying more, I searched the kitchen and found a sponge. Cutting it into pieces, I attempted the ombre with the kitchen sponge. It worked just as well and when I bought more, some cost me less than five dollars.

****

Polka-dots:

For the longest time, I eased the brush down onto the nails with such precision and care. No matter how hard I tried, the dots were irregular in size. I bought tools that helped with that for ten dollars.

One day, I went to a friend’s house and we did nails. I’d forgotten my handy-dandy polka-dot tools. My friend showed used the tip of a paint brush and I am forever changed.

Also, we found that pin heads also worked great and better than the polka-dot tools. They were always in supply if we couldn’t find our tools and they made life easier.

****

Sharpies:

I’ve also struggled perfecting the designs many artists appeared to spend minutes on. My brushes were not thin enough for the delicate patterns.

At this time, I knew that permanent markers like sharpies could be removed with nail polish remover.

One day, attempting the nail art in the picture on the left, I was frustrated in the tiny little lines I couldn’t master.

I shrugged and finished off the nails with a plain, boring coat of blue. The next day, I was determined to try again and finish them. I was struggling to come up with a way to ease the stress of getting perfect dashes with the right amount of space between them.

My mom, who’s nails I was doing at the time, made a comment like “too bad we can’t find pens with thin tips.” I recalled the fact sharpies can be removed with nail polish, gasped, sealed the black color I was using and jogged up the stairs.

I ran back down with the cup of sharpies kept in the craft room. The sharpies worked better than any brush we had. They even came off with the rest of the nail polish.

Though you must wait a few hours to use ultra-fine sharpies, they got the job done and I will always use them. It’s also helpful that sharpies come in such a variety of a color. They work best on the lighter colors, but that’s a rudimentary rule – dark on light.

****

Stripes:

Some people use skinny little nail brushes to create the delicate stripes. I find that tedious, stressful, and just redundant.

Some years ago, I discovered a website that gave the genius idea to use tape. Not only is tape good for stripes, but also other designs, like french tips or even flames. At chloesnails.blogspot.com, she uses tape to draw flames instead of free handing it and risk it looking bad.

Tape is an excellent tool to use and it’s cheap.

I’ve seen tape you can buy at a grocery store, made for nail designs. Some of them costing over five dollars. Why? Why would you buy something for five dollars when you have a replacement sitting your kitchen junk drawer? Plus, most of those tapes stick to your nails which is infuriating when the polish is tacky.

****

Top coat:

A top coat is a great idea to add to your nail design. It strengthens the polish helping it last longer and also helps it dry faster. There are many different products you can buy at your local grocery store for cheap. However, I find their price represents their quality.

I’ve tried different types of top coats and only one comes to mind that is effective. The best place to find a top coat is Sally’s.

Though it’s more expensive than some of the other clear coats, Seche Vite works well. It strengthens the nail polish you use and helps it last for days. Some clear coats I’ve used can peal off in one piece leaving you fingernails bare. Seche Vite doesn’t work that way but keeps the polish on for days.

How to be a Cowboy!

How to be a cowboy!

By Cowboy McCowboyson

Have you ever wanted to be a cowboy? Well, it’s your lucky day! Because I am a genuine cowboy, and I’m here to tell YOU how to be a cowboy! Lucky you!

(Note- this is not an instructional page on how to be a cowgirl. I do not intend to be sexist, but this for men only, hence why it is cow-BOY and not cow-GIRL. Thank you for understanding.)

 

Well, without further ado, here are the top seven ways that YOU can turn yourself into a cowboy!

 

Number one: Get a swanky accent!

Nothing is sexier on a cowboy than his accent. Whether it’s a smooth Texan accent or a deep Louisiana accent, get rid of that stupid sounding city boy accent! Just try to talk in the accent that you want as much as possible, and boom! You’re a genuine cowboy. But if that’s too much work for you, then all you have to do is approach a Texan man and take his voice. You can learn how to do this at any magic cowboy class near you, but it’s very advanced!

Number two: Get yourself a pair of boots!

A cowboy and his boots are like a tiny boy and his mother: SEXY! Boots can range from square toe to J toe, and the best way to find out which one works best for you is to just go to your nearest boot store, and just try a bunch of ‘em on! And, once you DO find the perfect match, you gotta buy ‘em! But, if you don’t have enough money to get those sexy thangs, then don’t worry! All you have to do is get a mask, break into the store late at night, and just take ‘em! That way you don’t have to pay a cent for boots, and you’ll also be an outlaw! That’s very cowboy-like! Good for you!

 

Number three: Get a legit cowboy hat!

A cowboy’s hat is his trademark. It’s what makes him special, like Mason Ramsey (the Walmart Yodeling Kid)! All you have to do is go to your nearest cowboy hat store, find the hat that fits, and buy it! BUT, if you REALLY want to get that “original” vibe coming from you, all you have to do is this overly specific set of instructions. Here you go: yodel at an approximate G6 pitch, then Old Man Wind will send you on a quest to find the golden cowboy hat, which, by the way, is defended by an immortal bear! My friend Hank went on this said quest, and I haven’t heard from him since! But it’s alright, because I didn’t like him anyways!

Number four: Get a horse!

Horses aren’t as fast as a Lamborghini by any means, but you can’t afford a Lamborghini, so buy a horse. Go to your nearest ranch, look at which horse looks the sexiest, and buy that darn horse! However, if you can’t afford that super, speedy quick animal, then that sucks for you!

Number five: Come up with original insults!

One part of being a cowboy is that you got to be able to defend yourself, both with fists and with words. If someone insults you, instead of walking away from it all, get right in their face and unleash your inner fury! Some examples include: “horse licker”, “sack of crap”, “city boy”, and “shut your face or I’ll shut it for you”.

Number six: Become very patriotic! (Like OVERLY patriotic)

If you are a cowboy, then there is no doubt that you live in the beautiful United States of America! And if you live here, you might as well become overly excited and loving about it! Some examples of things you could do to become more patriotic would be to buy illegal fireworks, over-celebrating the Fourth of July, have a  of clothes with the American flag pictured on them, and own approximately 47 American flags!

Number seven: Learn to play the guitar! (Optional)

Now, I personally don’t know how to play the guitar. If you decide NOT to learn to play the guitar, then make sure that you make friends with someone who DOES know how to play the guitar. Because then when you and your buddies have robbed a train and are sitting by a campfire, you can tell that friend of yours, “Play us a song, Ted.”(Make sure his name is Ted, too.) If you DO decide to learn how to play the guitar, then good for you! I will not help you because I do not know how.

Well, here we are! The end! If you follow my advice stated above, then you will become a genuine cowboy! I’ll see you on the plains my brother.

 

 

 

Why Okc Thunder is good

All About OKC Thunder

First of all okc has some of the greatest players in the league right now including

Paul George and Russell Westbrook.  They have a positive record this season their record is 8-5 which is super good. The Thunder have a great head coach because he knows his abilities.

Why There Good

Were also great because we have good outside shooters and Steven Adams are big man dominates the board. Now that Carmelo Anthony is gone were good. We will not lose we’re 3rd in the west and we plan on getting first seed for sure. I like the thunder because Paul George he is a great on and off player and so is Russell Westbrook. We are a great team including off the court. We have multiple meet and greets and we have media day with the fans. We have also had a great reputation with are teams we had the big three. Which is Durant, harden,westbrook and they were the best in the league and still are but they split up.

The Thunder History
Image result for championship basketball trophy

This season were a better team. The good shot to get the great shot that’s are modow and that has made us better. Seasons in the past we had people just taking the ball every time and not passing and that made us worse. This season the team moves the ball around and not taking stupid shots and the passing shows in games.

Dynamic Duo

The dynamic duo of George and Westbrook  talents out they respect each other and act like teammates. Each of them contribute to the teams winnings including the bench we have the best bench. We have the best of  players that can come off the bench and score points and stay with the other teams starters. Are gm is smart too with his picks we have better future picks in the drafts. We have only had 1 championship ever but we are on the grind to get one. Were on track for two years now so  were due for a championship.

SuperSonics

Image result for supersonics logo

The supersonics are good and they still are the supersonics. But they turned into the OKC Thunder I  know why but the legacy is still here and all the amazing players. Also known as supersonics. the supersonics were in seattle but then they relocated to Oklahoma. They renamed themselves the thunder. Here are some of the players.

Image result for shawn kemp

Shawn Kemp’s Career

Shawn kemp is a  violent athlete. Shawn Kemp was never able to tear down at least one rim during his NBA career. Which is weird because he attacked every time with effort.

What Kemp Did

Kemp was a superstar athlete for the Sonic teams of the 1990s they threatened to win a championship. He played the perfect complement to Hall of Fame point guard Gary Payton. They were the dynamic duos in the NBA they could not lose.

Kemp’s Seasons

Kemp spent the first eight seasons of his career with Seattle and would represent the team in five All-Star games. He’d also make it onto three All-NBA second teams and would finish as high as seventh in MVP voting, coming in 1994 when he dropped 18.1 points and 10.8 rebounds per.

Kemps Numbers

Kemp averaged a double-double in six consecutive seasons. His best season coming in 1996, the year Seattle advanced to the NBA Finals. He averaged 19.6 points and 11.4 rebounds per game. He’d also shoot a career-high 56 percent from the field. He cannot lose that’s why he will be known for the rest of his life no matter what because of his percentage and how clutch he was.

Image result for gary payton

Gary Payton

Gary Payton is  a 6’4″ point guard.He  locked down jordan in a closeout game that give the Chicago Bulls a clean sweep in the 1996 NBA Finals.

Finals

This comes after Jordan destroyed other Seattle Sonics defenders. While Payton dealt with a calf injury that kept coach George Karl from putting him on Michael. Or else the supersonics might have had a chance winning the NBA Finals. Gary payton is the best Okc/ supersonics player ever. He ranks in the top 10 of all time he was so fast and explosive. He would destroy anyone in a one verse one on the court and he was impossible to guard.

Kevin Durant

Image result for kevin durant wearing thunder jersey

I know no one likes kevin durant because he left the thunder and went to the bandwagon. Warriors but he was is also the best players in thunder history. He is  the best in the league right now other then lebron james. Other than that kd has 2 NBA Finals championship titles with the warriors. He lit up the game when he was on OKC Kevin, Russel,James harden they were the best trio in the league. Now they split up and now there some of the best players because of his athleticism. OKC Thunder is the best team in the league and will always be no matter what.

What is the best skate shoe for 2018?

2018 Skate Shoes

It can be hard to find the right shoe to skate for the year. Many people find it annoying when they spend 80 dollars just for the shoe to rip on your third kick-flip at the park.  Here is a list of my preferences for the best skate shoes for the year.

Vans

Vans classics

Image result for vans

Any normal pair of vans are fun to skate but they rip quick. The shoes have amazing board feel because of their slim design. This design can also be bad for the shoe. The thin canvas rips easily and provides very little amounts of protection to the feet. Also unless you replace the insoles your feet will hurt really bad after a few primo lands. Usually go for $50.

Vans Pro Slips

Image result for vans pro model slip ons Vans Pro Slips are great shoes to skate. Although they can lack board feel, they are comfortable shoes to skate. They also last a long time depending on how you skate. The suede upper holds together well unless you get it wet. The outer sole is very thick and great once it is broke in. They also have Vans Ultra Cush insoles. The insoles are also comfortable. Usually go for about $80.

Kyle Walker’s

Unlike the Pro Slips, Kyle Walkers are more sport-like.  They were built on Vans’ revolutionary WAFFLECUP technology, delivering both the support and stability of a cupsole shoe without sacrificing any of the boardfeel and grip. They also provides skateboarders with superior levels of cushioning and durability from Vans’ ULTRACUSH HD impact sockliners and Vans’ DURACAP rubber underlays in high-wear areas. These shoes usually go for $75.

Adidas

3ST.003

 

Adidas 3ST.003 are pricey shoes but they can  back it up. A one-piece suede upper and gum rubber wrap doubles up on durability while a fold-down tongue provides an optional fit. These shoes last for their price and are worth the buy.  If you have some extra cash and nothing to spend it on these would be a great buy. They usually go for $90

 

Matchcourt Slip ADV

Matchcourt Slips ADV’s are the best shoe for the price.  Built with durable canvas, they step up the support with a built-in sockliner to soften your landings. They also have a grippy vulcanized outer sole for precise board feel. They can be a great shoe for the season. They can be bought for around $60.

 

3MC’s

The 3MC’s are another great value shoe. They are more expensive then the Matchcourt’s at around $65. The feature a clean , low profile design that’s easy to break in. Proper flex and grip is not a issue thanks to the Geoflex vulcanized outsole, while a reinforced canvas/suede upper provides the durability needed for any session. The shoe also fits true to size.

Nike

Nyjah’s

These shoes are the combination  of a legendary skater and a high quality company. The Nyjah’s are the long-awaited signature SB shoe of Nyjah Huston, pushing the boundaries of what is possible in comfort and design. Thanks to the unique full rubber upper, breathable flex grooves, and flexible neoprene inner sleeve, you get an ultra-durable shoe that feels ready to skate right out the box. These shoes can go for around $95. They are worthy of the price.

Team Classics

 The Team Classics are Nike’s starter shoes. They are the real deal, maximizing boardfeel, durability, and stability, all on a lightweight design. An internal bootie creates a sock-like fit, while a special traction pattern disperses pressure with each step you take. Angled slits on the sidewall of the shoe provide the detailing needed to maximize grip for a more precise flick. These shoes come at the great price of around $65.

Janoski Slips

Nike SB Janoski Slip Shoes Gunsmoke/Gunsmoke-WhiteThe Janoski Slips are great shoes from Janoski and Nike. They are a unisex skateboarding shoe featuring a built-in Nike Zoom Air unit in the sockliner and flexible rubber outsole for responsive cushioning and exceptional boardfeel. They usually go for around $75dsf

Conclusion

The best shoe for 2018 is up to your preferences. If you don’t want to go too pricey but still want a shoe to skate you would wanna go with Vans. If you want nice durable shoes and you are willing to spend money then go with Adidas or Nike. All of it depends on what you want and like. The best way to find the right shoe for you is to test them out and narrow down your preferences, likes, and dislikes.

Out of the box the Traxxas Slash 4×4 VXL comes with the Velineon Brushless System.  This brushless system comes with a 3500 KV brushless motor. The Velineon Brushless System also comes with the VXL-3s electronic speed control, you may also here an electronic speed control called as an ESC. The VXL-3s ESC can run up to and including a 3s lipo battery which gives up 12.4v of power when charged. This brushless system brings a ton of power. When gear right I have been able to reach speeds up to 60 mph. This whole system is water proof. The Velineon Brushless System provides more power than needed for this truck.

Motor

The Traxxas Slash 4×4 VXL come with a 3500 KV DC brushless motor. This motor on a 3s lipo can get this truck to speeds of 60 mph. It can also get this truck to do wheelies and if you’re going off a jump you may be able to do a front or back flip. The Velineon 3500kv brushless motor gives the truck tons of power.

ESC

The Traxxas Slash 4×4 VXL comes with a VXL-3s Velineon ECS. With this ESC you can run up to a 3s lipo battery. This ESC has three mods on it. Training mod; which gives the motor 50% of forward power, 50% of rev. power, and 100% braking power. This mod is great for beginners. The next mod is sport mod. With this mod you get 100% of forward, rev. and braking power. This mod is great for ever drivers of all styles. Finely, the last mod is racing mod. In this mod you get 100% forward and braking power, but you get 0% rev. power. A YouTube channel called Traxxas Support has done a great video on this.

Like stated before the Traxxas Velineon ESC can run on lipo batteries. The ESC has low-voltage detection on it. This will prevent the lipo battery from over discharging. To turn on the low-voltage all you must do is hold down the easy set button for ten seconds than the LED will turn green. Traxxas has done a video to help ad you in this possess if needed.

Servo

The Traxxas Slash 4×4 VXL comes with a Traxxas servo. This is Traxxas part number 2075 . This servo has 125 oz-in torque.

Receiver

The Traxxas Slash 4×4 VXL comes with Traxxas TQI 2.4 Ghz radio system. The TQI radio system comes with Traxxas Stability Management also called TSM for short (read more about TSM below).  The receiver is in a waterproof box allowing no water to enter making this vehicle able to go through water without breaking or ruining any of the electronics. You maybe asking yourself what does the receiver do? Well, the receiver is connected to the ESC and the servo. When the receiver receives information from the controller, it tells the rested of the electronics what to do. In other words, the receiver is like the brain of the Slash 4×4 VXL.

Controller

Like stated before, the Traxxas Slash 4×4 VXL comes with the Traxxas TQI radio system. The controller sends info. to the receiver on what the driver wants the car to do. On the TQI 2.4 GHz controller that comes stock with every Traxxas Slash 4×4 VXL, you have two buttons and two dials. The two buttons are the menu and set. With these to buttons you can program the controller and if needed, the receiver. The two dials can adjust the steering trim so the Traxxas Slash 4×4 VXL will drive straight. With the offer dial, which is called the multi-function knob, you can adjust how much the TSM reacts to different thing. To recap, the Traxxas Slash 4×4 VXL comes with the 2.4GHz TQI 2-channel controller.

   TSM

Traxxas stability management, more commonly called TSM is one of the best features on the Traxxas Slash 4×4 VXL. TSM is a gyro which keeps to car from spinning out and much more. TSM will always keep the front of the car facing forward. This is extremely helpful when driving at high speeds. That’s not all that TSM does. When going off jumps it keeps the car as flat as it can. Traxxas has a great video on TSM to help explain it even more than it already has. TSM is one the best things on this truck, and it is a useful tool.

Durability

With the amount of power that the truck get it must be able to take a hit without breaking. This truck can do just that. A crash test done by Rc Studios over on Youtube shows how this car acts when it gets into a front-end crash. In the video you can see the front-end start to bend under the forces of the impacted. With it doing this, the amount of damaged done goes down. But if you are driving like a bat-out-of-hell and you hit something, something on this truck is bound to broke. After a few months of driving I was able to find the on point of the vehicle that brakes most often, the wheel yokes. The Wheel Yokes brake most often when put under extreme amounts of stress and power. This part does not cost much to replace or takes that long to replace. Rather than that one part the Traxxas Slash 4×4 VXL is extremely durable and can take a hit without breaking.

Driving abilities

It is no shock that if a car can handle many surfaces is why we get them. The car needs to be able to get some traction on many surfaces. A car must be able to handle it weight at any speed or on any terrain. The Traxxas Slash 4×4 VXL can do just that.

 

I have driven the Traxxas Slash 4×4 VXL on every surface from hot loose sand to ice covered roads. The Traxxas Slash 4×4 VXL can handle its weight and go on every type of terrain. I will tell you now that the stock tires on the Traxxas Slash 4×4 VXL are nowhere close to being good. I had the stock tires on my Slash 4×4 VXL for just under two months before replacing them with a pair of Pro-Lines BadLands . The Badlands on my Slash 4×4 VXL  are amazing and I would not replace them with any other type of tire.

Snow Driving

I live in northern Utah, here we have large amount of snow for 5 mouths of the year. So, when I am buying a car that is my biggest concerns. The Traxxas Slash 4×4 does great in the snow with Badlands on. With four-wheel drive, the Slash can pull itself out of the deep snow and onto somewhere where it is able to more traction. Now with colder weather comes ice. With ice you can get the back end to kick out and do cool drifts. If you just want to go straight on the ice it can also do that just perfectly. The Traxxas Slash 4×4 VXL is great in the snow.

Sand

To begin with, the Traxxas Slash 4×4 VXL does not do that well in sand. The tires have a hard time getting and keeping traction. With four-wheel drive you will have all four wheels moving but you will get little ground. This is fixed easily with a set of sling shot tires by Pro-Line Racing . On the hand, once you get up to speed, you can get the Slash “floating” on the sand. You will be able to drive fast and be able to kick out the back get if you want. To recap, the Traxxas Slash 4×4 VXL can handle sand but it is not best at it.

Loose Gravel and Dirt

Loose gravel and dirt, perhaps the best places to drive the Slash 4×4 VXL if you’re looking for a good time. Here you can basically do anything with the truck. High speed runs, wheelies, donuts, and many more things you can do with the Slash on this type of terrain. With the Traxxas Slash 4×4 VXL you get a few inches of ground-clearance allowing you to get up and over stuff that is in your way. The Traxxas Slash 4×4 VXL is great on off-road terrain.

On-road

On-road is the best places to drive the Slash 4×4 VXL. The only place where the Traxxas Slash 4×4 VXL’s stock tire s were able to get good traction was on-road. With the Vilineon 3500kv brushless motor you can reach speeds up to 60 mph. The Slash 4×4 VXL is great on-road.

Skate park

Is that a plane, a bird? No, it is a Traxxas Slash 4×4 VXL at a skate park. With the Slash weighting just over few pounds you can get it to go high into the air. Only here have I been able to get the Slash 4×4 VXL to do a back-flip. At the Skate park I have gotten the Slash to reach up to 50 feet in the air. The Traxxas Slash 4×4 VXL is the king of the skate park.

Review

If you are questioning getting a Traxxas Slash 4×4 VXL, just do it. The Traxxas Slash 4×4 VXL is my favorite RC car I have ever driven. It is light weigh, quick, and agile. It can go on ever terrain and master it. I love my Slash 4×4 VXL. If you ask anyone else who owns one, they will tell you the same thing. The Traxxas Slash 4×4 is the best car to own. If you get one, you will love as much as I do.
