    It is a drop-in replacement to the Slash 4x4 stock bumper.

    When running in BaskSlash configuration, I didn't like it. I know it's aesthetic, but I see it more as functionality. If the Scorpion (my BackSlash) were my 1:1 and I were actually sitting it it to drive it, I would not be able to see where I was going with that bumper. That is why I had to mod a bumper for it. See the pic on my post #73 above. As the driver, you can see ahead of you through the shock towers.

    Hard to see out through the Stampede bumper:



    I know I'm strange that way, but that bumper wasn't an option on the Scorpion for my way of thinking...
    I see what you mean and ended up taking EvHexRC1‘s advice and modding a tbone racing bumper. I will start a new thread and post some pictures. Thanks for all the advice.

    Have you decided which bumper you're going to buy?

    Mine is a T-Bone Bastion made for the Typhon.

    https://tboneracing.net/collections/...rrma-typhon-6s

    I drilled it and reshaped it to fit and function how I wanted it.



    Have fun!

    It looks like an on road beast! Maybe you can do more than just speed runs...
    If you add a front spoiler maybe you could pass a few touring cars
    Guess who's back.
    Back again.

    I have one in my parts bin that can easily be made to fit... just in case!

    Ok so here are my new wheels and Bumpers. I am going to roll the front of the bumper a little to prevent scooping dirt on a nose hit, but is am happy with the fit and the low profile protection.

    Where did you get the A-arm pin retaining plate? I fabbed one up, but would like another finished looking option.

    The aluminum front Hinge-Pin Block was in my parts bin...
    I think it came from my STRC e-Buggy conversion kit.
    Sorry, but I don't think STRC sells it by itself.

    Your rig looks much better now without the Slash front bumper on it!

    Thanks Squeegie, I added some stampede lower skids and started shaping a rear bumper as well. The car hauls on the dirt and grass so well with the new shoes.

    Hi Squeegie,

    I have few questions that I thought you would be able to answer best with respect to your build.

    1. Driveshafts:
    I like the Tekno M6 cvd that you are using on your build but will they hold up with the Mamba Monster X and Castel creations 1515-2200kv sensored brushless motor?

    Is MIP X-duty CVD kit a better option in terms of durability?

    2. ESC
    Did you have any problems with the MMX esc and the CC1515 combo? Is this a good combo to buy?

    I am looking to buy the best adaptable combo for both speed and bashing when required.

    3. Receiver Location:
    From your experience, if I buy a motor mount to place the motor in center above the driveshaft itself then do I still need to replace the radio box location or will the esc and radio box both for comfortably in the original space?

    4. Tires/Speed
    Did you tape the Proline prime tires that is seen on your build?

    Do they start ballooning at high speeds?

    What speeds were you able to comfortably drive the car at with the proline prime tires?

    Also, do the 2.8 wheels/tires heat up the motor due to their size and added rotation mass?

    I have started conversion already ans this is where I stand for now but will have a custom painted body too at a later stage.

    Note: The body is not mounted yet. I will need to trim it down to mount it properly.

    1. My basher has MIPs, but since this one is a street rig, I thought I'd give the lighter axles a try. I have not had a problem yet, but I have not really given it full speed runs yet. I've been way to busy the past few months. I will go back to MIP if/when my Tekno's give out.

    2. My trusty MMX and 2200kV sensored system is in my basher. No problems so far with my good 'ol MM2 and 2200kV non-sensored system. This build will get my Tekin RX8 Gen3 with 2250kV T8 Gen2 and Hotwore 3.0 sensored system once I have time to solder all my systems and batteries to convert them to CC 6.5 connectors.

    3. I have not tried a center motor mount yet, but I do have some in my parts bin. Test fit and see. It may work for yours since your body sits higher then mine. With the center motor mount on, I doubt you can run this body. Why? you would have to run dual external battery trays.

    4. Yes, my Primes are taped. I have not done a full speed run yet and have no idea what it will do at speed. I have had them on my basher before and ran then in the low 40mph range and they were fine. For now, my Slyphon has my 2.8 G-Locs on them and look great. Have not run them, but I love the way they look on the rig... more to scale (but probably speed reduced due to smaller diameter). I'll try and take a pic with them on later. I also have BSR team purple foams for it if I get the need for speed. I also have some GRP rubber for it, but not done with it yet...

    Your rig looks nice so far. Keep it up and us posted!

    Dang a dang dang Squeegie! That is sweet. Looks like a 100 mph+ rig to me. Nice job! I liked the other tires too. Gave it a meaner look.

    Thank you. I also have BSR Team Purple foams if I felt like speed runs, but it looks just like every other buggy wheel/tire.
    I have some GRPs as well, but have not finished with what I want to do before trying them on...

    Will do... but I don't know when that would be.
    This is a street rig, not a speed rig... for now.

    Home Depot... but you have to make it.

    I used a piece of 3" diameter black PVC pipe.

    I dig the GLocs with the white lettering on the tires. Now it looks like an Indy car. Very cool! How does it handle on the street? How do you think this truck would handle set up like this on an on-road course?

    Welcome to the Traxxas forums!

    That is the wing for the Arrma Typhon (see post #1 for the list of parts in this build):

    This thing is a beast. Where did you got the front shock tower cover piece from? or did you custom make it?

    Slyphon: Burning Chrome

    I looked through the first post and couldnít find any info. There might have been something in the thread. My apologies if this has already been discussed:

    Which pure teach battery strap fits the battery tray? Small, medium, or large?

    I cant take measurements right now and I would love to order one.

    Every time I come to this thread. I have to look at the beginning to catch a glimpse of Burning Chrome. That is one sweet machine. Looks mean with those slickety slicks on it.

    I would sure try and take some kind of measurement as much as the puretech straps cost. I have a small set laying around just cuz of that reason. "Did not measure".

    It never even crossed my mind to measure the height. I had thought about length however. What mah batteries do you run?
