    Question Front Hex conversion...

    i am currently in the process of turning my XL5 rusty to a slash...and i have a newer body and wheels on nitro is totally stock...eventually i planned on a new body and tires regardless...but with my XL5 goin to a slash...i have a body and wheels available for the nitro...i can get the body on it no problem...just have a few questions for the hex conversion...

    i know i need pretty much everything from a XL5 a-arms and out...
    a- arm
    castor block
    hex hub
    steering block

    and i wanna keep with the turnbuckles instead of the plastic camber links...does anyone know if the stock nitro camber turnbuckles will work with the XL5 castor blocks? screws and all?

    thanks...i appreciate any answers...

    the turnbuckles may work but you need them just a bit longer because the electric a arms are slightly wider. i had to use different pins for mine though not the e clip ones like my nitro had or i had to drill bigger holes and since mine were rpm i did only 1 hole. wheel nuts are also needed. screws work with the electric and nitro so your ok there.
