    Question Any 4wd kits for 2wd Slash?

    I recently got new on-road tires for my Slash Pink Edition and I was considering taking it to a paved RC track, but then I watched some on-board youtube vids and saw that 4wd would be really useful since my Slash spins out a lot. Does anybody have suggestions for a kit, or do I need to get a Slash 4X4?


    Hoping for my RC to be 4WD,

    I have the same idea that you do. iv'e seen that 4wd is better than 2wd and i've had the idea to change it to 4wd because that's what i prefer, but i don't think there are any kits to convert it. Other than that i think you'll have to buy a roller and go from there.

    There is no substantial relation between the 2wd and 4wd Slashes.

    Slash 2wd and 4x4 are totally different rigs.

    Your best bet here is to get a 4WD roller and move the electronics over.

    The 2WD Slash is what it is. If you are spinning out a lot then you need to ease up on the throttle, loosen the slipper a little, and get tires suited for the traction conditions that you are running on.

    Couldn't agree more.

    There was a project on here somewhere of someone taking two 2wd Slashes and making a 4wd out of them. It costed way more than just buying one but was an interesting build nonetheless.

    Thank you, everyone! Just wondering, is a roller just a chassis?

    There are rollers and sliders...

    A roller is generally a RC that is mostly complete, but does not have the electronics; a lot of times they will not have a body either.

    A slider is normally a chassis without wheels or electronics, and will likely need other parts and pieces to complete.

    Recommend looking locally (FB/Craigs), you'll save money on shipping and you'll be able to actually see what you are buying. Do not recommend E-Bay, there are lots of scams.

    How much do rollers usually cost?

    My budget is around $100... I also need a body for my Slash that is more street-focused. But the body can wait.

    If anyone is wondering, Antonio Vivaldi turned 342 a week ago.

    Thank you for all your help!

    Yeah I believe that you best bet is going to be sell the 2WD and purchase a 4WD. They are totally different as far as the set up goes.
