    Mechanically I think the HCG 2wd slash is closer to the stampede than anything else. My theory is that at the time, had they come out with LCG off the bat, people would have complained they just...

    For gtr shocks, Try associated part number 91071 and 91077, they are the 13mm front and rear spring kits with 4 weights each. The stiffer ones are plenty stiff for my sl4sh I thought.

    The vxl version at least comes with the 42mm tall battery hold down bar (the flat one) that fits the 5000mah 4s battery traxxas makes, I use it with mine modified with the UDR esc and motor.
