    Where did you get the parts? Can you elaborate on the difference?

    eBay, people are parting out the
    New ones so I got the arms and turnbuckles..

    Handling is incredibly better! Doesn't want to flip near as much, if the dirt is just slightly loose I can keep it wide open and slide through corners no problem. I have done a decent amount of stuff to my slayer and would say the new wider arms is first on the list of recommendations!

    Thanks for the info. I'll see if I can wait till tower gets the parts in and use their discount. I'm glad to hear it does make a big difference. I haven't driven my slayer for a long while b/c it just wasn't fun.

    What I did is converting it without the new chassis. But if you get new chassis you need steering linkage and I believe front drive shaft.

    The difference in the 2 chassis is 30MM You could just put the wider a-arms on You would also need the new turnbuckles and it would be wider or you could add the new chassis to get the 30MM longer the chassis is the 3.3 revo chassis. you can find them on e-bay all the time. you would need the steering linkage and the center front drive shaft.
    I wanted to put a really cool signature but I ran

    Anyone know if Traxxas is still producing the older slayer parts such as the a arms? I would hate to have to upgrade all this stuff to the Pro 4x4 specs if I just break one a arm.

    looks like the axle shaft push rods and turnbuckles from the slayer will work


    How I do?
    Also need the driveshafts for the front and rear. Almost done upgrading an electric converted version and a nitro version... can't wait to drive 'em!

    What is the part number of the driveshafts that are needed? I was under the impression the old shafts work.

    I'm not sure Traxxas sells the driveshafts as a complete set. I picked it up from Ebay for about $10 for the set of 4. The ones from the original does fit, but the overlap of the two pieces is very little (about 1"). I thought it would be safer to just replace them with the Slayer Pro driveshafts.

    According to the exploded view for the Slayer Pro:

    http://traxxas.com/PDF-Library/5907_shafts.pdf

    The correct part # is 5456:

    They're all 5456, so I can just take the ones I linked to and cut them down if needed.
