    2 wheel drive slayer project

    hey all, bouncing ideas around and want to know if a two wheel drive slayer would be worth it, currently have a slayer roller and all nitro bits after I built my E-Slayer Pro 1/8 up, how hard would it be to make a two wheel drive slayer?
    Just want your thoughts on it is all!!
    Cheers

    Not hard. Just remove the center shaft between the transmission and front diff but retain the u-joint holding the brake rotor. If you want to to further, remove the front drive shafts and diff.

    Would this be considered a Slash Pro? Probably make the truck fun to drive and by removing the front diffs a little lighter in the front. Not a bad idea since I find the Slayer is a little front heavy.

    It will make you a better driver with more throttle control having rear drive.

    I have thought about doing this on my Slash 4x4 electric, but I wondered if doing this would create wheel wobble.

    I've tried taking out the FWD parts from my slayer to see how it would work. It was kinda like watching a real pro4 race w/o FWD, hard to track straight, liked to spin out and was difficult in the corners. the weight and balance seemed out of whack. I would think that's why they used an extended rustler chassis for the nitro slash, they started with a pure RWD machine and stretched it. I've got a Jato SCT on the drawing board, but haven't started on it yet.
