    The bone stock 2wd slash in brushed form is THE base model bargain among all TrAxxas models, in that it is the only xl-5 model that uses the same hex hardware, bearings, adjustable turnbuckles+links,...

    It’s all about (1) lowering the COG and (2) reduce lean and (3) find the balance between traction and tire catching to much of it and the whole car flips over.

    (1) is tough with the large amount...

    There seems to be a pre-drilled hole on the a arms for an additional something, but I can’t tell if it’s for a shock guard similar to the ones for a Stampede 4x4 or sway bar mounts. The area near the...

    Fundamentally we have to put it into perspective. It’s a short wheelbase, relatively tall monster truck with plush long travel suspension, high cog, and high traction tires. There is only that much...

    Alternatively you can get the rpm camber and toe gauges so you can adjust the angles on your specific car. Every car sits slightly differently depending on weigh, shock set up, etc so I found it...

    I like the prime for the 2wd slash since in stock form, other than the OBA model, the Slash has a very high COG and soft suspension, with high grip tires it traction rolls too much on pavement. The...

    Forgot one, Duratrax also makes the Robber in sc in front and rear offsets I believe.

    Proline Street fighter, prime sc, duratrax upshot are some other ones that may work. Or you can convert to 17mm hexes and use GRP 1/8 buggy tires that are actually smaller in diameter than SC tires.

    Have you already tried the J concepts 0042 body for the 2wd rustler? In my recollection it is a very low slung body in the rear and if I ever get my act together I was going to try it with my 4wd...

    You would be surprised how cheap they are at a concrete and stone specialty business. I bought one cubic yard of it for my yard for I think 150 and that’s a lot of rocks. If you talk to them nicely I...

    I just use 2.8 mt trenchers, badlands mx28, etc. the 3.8 I imagine would be way too wide and rub on everything.

    I like the HCG slash chassis, it’s very easy to work on. The only thing I don’t...

    I never got around to it but I recall reading the nitro rustler and slash front shock towers fit the electric ones and have extra bracing on top. It’s on my list to try and see if it works.

    Frankly if one wants better pavement manners in a MT, the e revo is a much better choice. The Maxx is what a jacked up slash monster truck we all wanted.

    The more common 4x4 slash/rustler/stampede arms are the same as rear rustler and stampede arms, 3655x. Front may need some fiddling with camber and turnbuckle length, I have to dry that to see if 4wd...

    I’m surprised you didn’t start with the lcg Sl4sh chassis since the goal is for a track oriented handler. Have you considered that route?

    If you are just messing around and not racing, get a 2wd Rustler vxl, much better aero properties for jumps and wider rear arms to put the power down, and the more close body also keep debris out...

    I run the savox 1258tg in all my 4wd Vxl-3s traxxas, the vxl-3s esc seems to handle it fine, very fast with plenty of torque even with 2.8 mt tires.

    Nice, is the the associated rc8b body?

    With the shock changed there really is no “weak” spot left. Maybe a fan for the motor now that the buggy body cuts down on airflow.

    A easy way to summarize the relationship between the 4wd slash, stampede, and rustler is that the HCG Sl4sh is just a stretched Stamp4de, and a Rustl4r is just a shortened LCG Sl4sh with shock towers...
