    Just started my Slash 4x4 build....

    So i bought my son a 4x4 Platinum for Christmas and now ive got the bug. Since Christmas we now has 2 slash 4x4s and a M41 (waiting for spring time)....

    Have been having fun messing around with these so decided to build one from the ground up- started ordering some parts and they have arrived.

    so far ive got
    -LCG Chassis
    -Protrac arms
    -XO-1 Caster/steering blocks
    -Platinum rear blocks
    -XO-1 CV axles
    -RPM front bumper/skid
    -RPM shock towers
    -GTR shocks
    -X0-1 17mm hubs
    -RPM rear bumper / wheelie bar
    -All grd 8+ Zinc blue dyed hardware
    -X0-1 diffs

    planning on a Hot Racing motor mount and plate, Castle 2200/ Mamba Monster combo

    its funny how addicting these things are to play with!

    Sounds like fun!

    Are you planning to build a basher or a speed rig?

    its going to be basically bashing around the yard and local dirt track fun.

    need to figure out what to start out with for front and rear diff fluid.

    To the OP, why are you using RPM shock Towers instead of the ProTrac shock Towers? The pro Trac towers are wider than stock to compensate for the longer arm. You would get better shock performance with the pro Trac Towers.

    I thought the Prp-Line ProTrac shock towers were for the 2WD Slash, not the 4x4?

    correct. Proline does not make Protrac shock towers for the 4x4 Protrac kit.. ONLY the 2WD. I often wondered why they did not offer shock towers for the 4x4.
