Hi guys
What's the actual problem on fitting a 230×60 shock on a Slash? (Assuming it doesn't contact the frame) Besides warranty issues..
I got a 2019 Slash 8 and got already some problems with the Truh Shaft shock and was looking for some options.
Thanks in advance!

I believe the biggest issue is with the piggy back/oil reservoir contacting the frame upon full compression. Other than that issue I only see you should get a bit more travel. Let me know how it goes if you put a coil on that frame. I have the same one and have been searching coil options for it.

So I'm getting my wheel warrantied and they don't have my wheel in stock. They're sending me the hoop so now is a good time to upgrade the hub. Any recommendations?

Fresh SLX drivetrain on my Slash - happy to move on from the NX components though that gruppo lasted a *lot* longer than I expected. Two rides in and I wish I'd sprung for the XT shifter as the SLX has a lot more slop in it than I'd prefer.

This completes out the upgrades to all the weak points on the 9.7 spec sheet. In the past year I've bolted up Synthesis Wheels, Highline 170 post, and an SQ Lab saddle. Switched to a steel 30T Eagle ring as well as installed Lyrik guts into the Yari chassis when it came time to service the fork.

weakest point still there, the seatangle needs to be updatet!!!

Not sure if serious but the geo works just fine for me. I've posted this elsewhere - I find the utility of the climb/lockout/compression adjust switch is as a "geometry preserver". I live 5 min from the base of a pretty steep mountain and as a new dad, my rides are generally about an hour or so. The climb trails out of the valley are relatively smooth singletrack - thanks WMBC trailbuilders! - so I find the climb switch to be really useful to prevent bob and keep me pretty well centered on the bike. Maybe a steeper SA would be even better, but I remain certain that the weakest points on the 9.7 were the wheels, tires, and seatpost. They didn't live up to the capability of the rest of the bike.
Mulling over an ElevenSix as the next update. (I knew of yesterday's discount but I have some bills to pay.)
