    Slash inner fenders

    I added the Scorched Parts inner fenders to my slash ultimate and I love them. Great fit, thick lexan, and greatly reduces rocks from the chassis(I run mostly in gravel). I leave the front section out for airflow, but would be good to install for snow runs this winter.

    Welcome to the forum and the addiction! You are among a group of people who share the love of the Traxxas Slash 4x4! If you have any questions please feel free to ask. Remember we are here to help!

    Thank you for bringing these up! In 2010 we had discussed how to make them. This looks like a quality product!

    The only thing I donít like is that they probably fit nice with sct body only.

    What other bodies do you have in mind? A lot of people like myself run buggy bodies as it is to avoid the parachute effect and debris collecting, but it seems logical the fenders were designed with the original body in mind, and looks like you can trim them a bit too for narrower bodies as needed.

    I run the 2017 Raptor body. I would like to know if it will fit?

    Oh yes!! I would love to get some of those to try. I run in gravel, dirt and grass. The mesh chassis cover does a decent job, but am interested in these. Could always use a heat gun to "tweak" them a little if needed with different bodies.

    Did you buy them direct or through Amain?

    Amain recently published a video where they added these inner fenders and a Dusty Motors shroud to a Slash 4x4.



    I use a E-Maxx body on mine, it helps keeping (some) debris out.
    I have a Dusty Motors shroud, but rarely use it. It prevents airflow, you realy have to watch your temps.

    I bought them thru Amain. I thought the mesh bags would be too hot and liked the idea of the fenders without the front plate. I did add a traxxas aluminum motor plate and esc fan as a precaution.

    Thats great. You could always cut some holes (door windows and rear window area) and shoe goo some rubberized window screen mesh or 1/8" hardware cloth inside to keep the muck out and let air in. Looks like the real deal as well.

    I had already cut out the side windows and part of the back roll bar area like I did back in 1989 with the rc10G converted to truck racing. I like your window net idea.

    As far as I know, they are now only available on the Scorched RC Website:

    I ordered a set straight from Scorched in the UK for my HCG Sl4sh back in late November and they arrived about a month later in January 2021. They were held in customs which caused the huge delay.

    Despite the delay they are worth it IMO, I personally liked the subtly of seeing the fenders from under the wheel wells, almost like scale fenders.

    I’m running them with the Traxxas Fox body so I can’t attest to the fit with other bodies.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O36RCsVPy0c

    Here’s a screenshot from a quick vid I made after a session in the snow. It was a crisp cold day with about an inch of snow on top of hard packed snow.


    My only caveat is the front fenders are shorter than the rears, I wish they were a bit more symmetrical.

    You can also see the fronts have a crease in them made to match the stock TRX Slash. Not sure if the creases would cause fit issues for other bodies.

    Looks really neat. Iím considering this for my 2WD Slash in addition to a Dusty Motors cover on my dedicated beach basher (lots of sand flying everywhere!).

    Has anyone run one with 2.8s? I have a feeling it may be a bit tight, unless I can space it up a bit to match the raised body...

    I think it has the same fender space as the stock body (in the stock location). If the stock body rubs in the stock location, then I don't think it would fit. However, I don't have it, so what I say may not be exactly true.

    I'm thinking of getting one for my Slash 4x4. Not sure if it will fit with the longer shocks and reversed shock towers on the front...

    My take is that since scrochedrc made it to fit the stock body, if we raise the mounts for bigger tires some rub and fit gap is inevitable. At that point maybe a heat gun and some hand adjustment can tweak it just enough to work.

    As far as the front being shorter than the rear, I wouldnít worry about it, if you look at how the body fits tightly with the fender there is very little chance any debris can get it from the top section

    Having looked in a bit more detail I think raising it up on extended body mounts will be a real pain, even if thereís no rubbing, because of how it attaches to the chassis. Basically the distance between your body posts and chassis has to be standard.

    Think Iíll have to consider making my own to accommodate my 2.8s. Maybe not too hard, Iíll try to figure something out! Maybe some spare lexan, drywall tape and shoe goo could create some inner arches attached to the shell...

    I recently installed a netting cover and it kept out most of the big chunks, but everything was still really dirty. Not really worth it my opinion.

    Do the fender wells help with parachuting too? I was thinking less chances of getting air under the body.
