    R2lly....?

    Well I don't think the guys in the 2wd slash sub - forum really appreciate this. I think you guys will
    Here's something I've been slowly putting together.

    Thank brother! after my speed runs in my rustler i felt the need to make this....lol. I just got a garmin so i might be able to get a run in this weekend. Nothing too fast cuz i need different gears an another matching 3s to make it work. But we'll see what kind of numbers it puts up.

    Thanks guys! I've only driven for about 5 mins so far. Gets dark early now. But so far I love the lcg 2wd. I've never had the hcg so I can't compare. But I really just want to set this up from a speed run car. Not sure how fast I can go with this body but I'll test it's limits for sure!

    It's pretty easy bro. I got revo gtr shocks and shortened the travel on the fronts by putting nitro fuel tubes in them. Then I put 4x4 rear drive shafts on. Got the proline body mounts. I have a HR trans and running Castle MMP esc and 2400kv motor. STRC 17mm hubs with sweep racing slicks. After that just slap on a rally body and your done.

    lol lets go a little simpler than that, it just has a vxl in it, so really i guess is the body mounts and lcg? I'm guessing you modified the front body mount holes on the rally body

    only picture i have right now but will my slash 2wd work

    Definitely! And yeah I had to make 4 new holes to mount the rally body. I made a front bumper and I don't run a rear bumper. But basically you just need a body mount.

    That looks like a great build. How fast have you gotten it to so far?
    My Black & Blue Rally is faster than your color...

    Tried getting a run in and my tires just weren't cutting it on my street. I need to work on my setup. Here's a quick video.

    Its looking great, I've had issues with pavement like that as well.
    If you can find a fresh black topped road you should be golden, well maybe some different tires too.

    I dig it.

    The 2WD Low-CG chassis looks pretty good with those wheels/tires.

    Good luck on the quest for 100mph.

    Thanks guys! If i get my gears in by this weekend i have a road that i run my rustler on that will work good. And i also have some GRP's that i will throw on for the speed run. It will only be on 3s or maybe 4s if i can make a Y connector.

    Thanks bro. I used to have this on my 4x4 rally but never ran it. It should get some use on my 2wd rally though.

    That's a good looking truck! Have you ran the Banditos yet? I didn't care for them much on pavement, but they make a good cross tire. I need to find some different tires for my Rally2.

    I have only ran the for a brief time on my r2lly. They worked alot better then the slick sweeps I was using. I didn't like them on my gt8 rally though.
