    I would be measuring the wheelbase before anything, but that's just me......

    worst case you could just get a clear body and then have someone paint it like that

    The WB is really the key here. If the WB with the body lines up with the Slash's you're good, body mounts and bumpers are easy to modify to fit.

    like other said if the wheelbase is way off forget it. That plastic is thick I'm sure. It would be a PITA to cut.

    I saw this toy a few weeks back and thought the exact same thing! I'm gonna try it. It's cheap enough for an experiment because it's just a shell with wheels.

    Wheel base looks to be 2 inches shorter than the Slash but there must be a way around it with a bit of Dremel action. Lightning McQueen on 3S! My 6 year old will freak!

    its wheelbase is stampede / rustler...

    people cut the front of the fenders out to fit it to a slash.

    heres my stampede 4x4 narrow mod onroad





    if u don't use bandit arms, the tires stick out pretty far on each side, kills the look for me

    heres what I was aiming for... lol

    I wish the tires said light year on them

    oh wait they do... just not in white.....



    bet you can make them fit the slash tires just like on the 1/16th version



    theres my 16th scale rally



    hollowed out the wheels and duct tapped them to slash tires.



    cut one of the wheels off, and painted light year white with a white paint sharpie



    Orange slash rim shoved inside, gonna have to cut more away, so the whole tire can fit inside...

    lol drift covers for my stampede 4x4.... thanks for inspiration lol

    oh and heres the picture of this body on someone's slash for you guys. off facebook group
