    About to install lcg chassis

    I have a stock 2wd slash with the Titan 12T. Since I only use my slash on an indoor clay track I decided to upgrade to the traxxas lcg chassis. At the same time I'll be installing aluminum caps on my stock shocks and going with a thicker weight oil. I'm assuming the install is easy enough, but is there anything I need to know? Also - do I need to reverse the steering on the radio after install?

    Super easy, the most "difficult" part is reversing the servo.

    just make sure that you shorten the steering servo turn-buckle to the right size so you turn equal both ways

    For me it made for a much harder reach for the motor wires.

    That was with the stock brushed motor.

    The rear shock tower 2 front holes were hard to line up by a hair.


    Hit me up man if you have trouble, i just did mine.


    If you wand a good video, exactly the video i followed, go to the y tube and Creature Slash LCG upgrade. You should be able to find it.

    It truly helped.

    Truck dosnt roll over near as bad now.

    I recently just finished the lcg myself. Pretty easy to do, took me a while to do though just cause I never had the time to sit for a few hours just to do it. Yes you have to reverse the steering too, a little tricky, the kit should have the directions on it or you can find it online too. I didn't buy the kit, instead I purchased the pieces individual cause I wanted a black chassis, and didn't want to have to die it black.
    Good idea putting some upgrades on the shocks. If I can make a suggestion as well. Since you will be tearing apart the truck its worth upgrading the bell cranks too. I put the 4x4 bell aluminum cranks on and took most of the front end slop out. So far I've noticed a difference in the truck but still have not put it on the track yet.

    Make sure you look for the video i mentioned above.

    That guy builds up his slash he named Creature.

    Hes got an entire playlist just for that car.

    I think he showed how to reverse the steering too.

    Use a little grease on the ends of the screws that are going into fresh plastic, it won't be as rough screwing it in. I like to screw it in with grease first, then back it all the way out and put it back in. It's like breaking in the plastic.

    Do I just turn the links in to make it shorter, or do I have to cut some of the shaft off?

    Here's a couple pics:




    My Slash is stock with the Titan 12T. I have aluminum shock caps and the lcg chassis now. I just use it at the clay track to race with friends. If I ever club race I'll stay in the stock class. If I go brushless in the future I'll get a 17.5 turn to remain in the stock class. I'll continue to upgrade small things if/when they break.
