    Slash VXL Aluminum Bellcranks

    What are my options here? I bought aluminum bellcranks for the slash 4X4 but as far as I can tell after messing with them for 15 minutes they donít work. If I want aluminum bellcranks do I have to downgrade to the bellcranks that come on the XL5?

    I donít have aluminum but i do have plastic bellcranks for 4x4 on my 2wd Slash. I installed them without problems on Hcg and then on Lcg chassis. I donít see why yours donít fit. Wich bellcrank do you have? Maybe someone already have same on his Slash..

    I see conflicting info in past threads. Does the 4x4 bellcrank fit on the 2x4 without modification? The piece that connects to the servo link looks like its on the opposite side. Can it be switched? I also see some saying the towers need to be shaved down. If it fits on the 2wd slash will it fit on the rustlrr as well?

    Slash VXL Aluminum Bellcranks

    Yeah 2WD VXL comes with the Traxxas 4x4 bellcranks, but it seems like traxxas bellcranks can be configured for either the 2x4 or the 4x4 but most aluminum ones are 4x4 only maybe? Iím not really sure.

    I got my slash used and it came with the white plastic bellcranks. The 4x4 ones I was looking at were the plastic ones. So part number 6845x fits with no modification? Ive been using an atomik rc aluminum bellcrank that was on another used car I purchased and its got a ton of slop it in. Do they also fit the rustler?

    Yeah Traxxas 6845x is configurable for either 2x4 or 4x4. Any after market 6845 is probably 4x4 only.

    The only aluminum bellcranks made for a 2wd with a servo saver built in are made by Pro-line, #6067-00. All others that i've seen use the servo arm type servo saver.

    Hot Racing makes a nice 2WD Aluminum bell crank with built in servo saver just like the plastic 4WD Traxxas one. Itís very nice.

    Iíve personally used both the plastic and aluminum bell crank from a Rustler in my 2x4 slash without an issue. The slash, rustler, and bandit are basically the same. Just the slash had a slightly different chassis.

    Traxxas part # 3743a

    Does it have the servo saver built into it? I can't find a picture or description.

    This is kind of a good diagram that shows where everything is in a 2wd slash non LCG. You would use the aluminum or plastic bellcrank I mentioned above and the stock servo saver.



    This image shows the same parts being used in a 2wd slash LCG chassis.

    Installed a 6845x on my slash earlier tonight. Very happy with it. Definitely cleaned up some of the slop my cheapo aluminum one had and now I get to put a cool looking servo horn on my savox

    I swear I think I have seen a Traxxas support video on installing the 4x4 bellcranks in the 2WD.

    Here is what I can find now
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5gUB74YGtwQ

    but I really think there is another video that is directly on point if you can find it.
