    NIce!!

    Quick question...Is that the stock electronics box/case that came with the 4x4 or is it from another car? did it bolt right up or did you have make new holes? These questions are for the black chassis 4x4.

    Looks great.

    The body doughnuts kill it for me though. Have you ever tried RPM Body savers? http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXEV38&P=7 I ditched the doughnuts once I found out about them and they work great. Just have to ream the holes a little and they stay with the body so you dont have to worry about loosing the doughnuts. Just a thought.
    Slash 4x4 RTR, CD, sway bars.

    can you hook it up with a VERY close up pic, so I can see where you had to put the new holes?

    I hated the doughnuts simply because i would drop them, I tend to stick body clips in my mouth (lips) when taking the body off for a short time I didnt have anywhere for the doughnuts. Even dyed black they are not my thing. I have probably close to 50 (I have bought a Traxxas truck or 2 lol) that are brand new just taking up space. Once you try the RPM body savers you wont think of wasting your time dying the doughnuts.

    Sidenote they dont work on my Parma Nissan Titan body its too thick. But they work perfect with the stock Traxxas bodys.
