    Rally body on a hcg Sl4ash

    I was wondering if anyone had and pictures of their slash that they have converted to a rally with out changing the a arms. Either lcg or hcg. Just curious how it would function. Thanks.

    I've only gone the other way in doing this (rally to slash not slash to rally) but I would think that this would work because all you have to do is replace the bumpers and body mounts. The chassis shouldn't matter
    Guess who's back.
    Back again.

    I've done the Slash to Rally conversion, but it was back when the arms were the same. It was quite easily actually, looked good IMO. Doing the conversion without the arms might look a bit odd, but if you used a wide offset rim it wouldn't be too bad; but the scrub radius for the steering wouldn't be too ideal.
    Is owning 27 RC's too many? No way!

    From a different post a few days earlier on the similar subject...

    The original Rally had a wider body and used the Slash 4x4 A-arms.

    If you use the stock Slash 4x4 plastic driveshafts you have to shorten them a little when mounting the ST Rally A-arms (or buy #6760/6761). If you use the MIP X-Duty's you'll be fine, but the Tekno M6 driveshafts can't be combined with the shorter A-arms. I don't know if Tekno has shorter dogbones from other vehicles which may fit.

    I am running some duratrax 2.8's And oddly enough, they are actually a touch shorter than stock, but also about 1/4" wider. So using the stock arms would probably not work at all. So it sounds like I would need to pick up a set of telluride arms, which is not a big deal, but I am wondering if I would still have rubbing issues. Does anyone know how much clearance there is with the telluride arms and stock tires?

    Here’s pics for reference... https://imgur.com/a/QXVpX0Q

    About 1 cm at the front, close to 1.5 cm towards the drivers door side. The rear is tight. 1cm at the highest point in the back but not much at all towards the drivers door side.

    Are you saying there are 2 Rally bodies of different sizes?

    Yes, this is the original Rally which I believe came with the LCG chassis before the same chassis was introduced on the Slash 4x4:

    7411 and 7411X = body for original rally with Slash arms
    7412 = body for newer rally with Telluride arms
