    Dirt Oval Traxxas Slash

    Is there some way to change the 30 degree caster built into the Slash. Is there like a different bulkhead or caster blocks? I'd like to get the caster to 20 degrees to increase on-power steering. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    As far as I know, caster is fixed. I know of no aftermarket parts to change it.

    These are discontinued. They will drop it to 25. If you can find them. Hobbytown stores will be your best bet in finding them. Maybe you could Snoop around , call some hobbytown round the country and find a set??? This is the only option I can ever remember that reduces caster.

    There are a set of -5 caster blocks for the N. Rustler. Probably needs modification.

    Maybe against your racing rules...



    Here's what I tried it on:



    This would also change your bellcrank/servo placement.....

    The parts are all different on the front suspension of the nitro rustler. The arms, the c block, the knuckles... The ft bearings are inside the rim and not inside of carriers. You can swap over, but then finding rims will be next to impossible...
