    Love the rally body! I wish that category was more popular.

    Do the ties rub?

    There’s a small amount of rubbing, but nothing too bad to be honest. The Hoons are a bit smaller diameter than some of the other options, which helps a lot.

    Just a few more minor tweaks recently, so thought I’d update this thread.

    Having bought my son a Rustler 4x4 VXL for Christmas I liked the look of the bumpers, so bought a pair (plus wheelie bar and anodised wheels) for my Slash.

    I needed a decent wheelie bar which works with the 2.8s, we’ll just have to see if it’s too flexible or not...




    The front bumper works quite well with the nose of the bug shell and means I can tuck the light bar away underneath.





    I also upgraded the 17mm hexes on my Raid wheels to aluminium (sorry, aluminum!) ones as I’ve already had a couple of them crack.



    I’ve always thought the Arrma rear wing was a bit too ‘heavyweight’ looking on the rear of mine. Even more so with the smaller front bumper fitted. So I decided (after a few beers!) to cut it down, removing the entire upper plane. Feels a bit more balanced now I think...



    Oh and finally I made some little carbon rear light housings to fit under the rear arches. Tucked out of the way here and useful for the dark evenings now...





    That’s all for now!

    Nice! can you do a picture with the whole car? (With the new wing and stuff)

    Also, what are you using for your wing mount?

    Sure - here’s a few:









    Oh and the rear wing mount is a HPI Vorza Flux item with some spacers to raise the wing a bit. Needed a carbon plate to ‘sandwich’ the rear shock tower for the upper fixings, but otherwise a fairly easy install. There was a video on YouTube of someone fitting one...

    Great job with the rear wing!

    I did that with my Arrma wing a while ago as well:

    Ah brilliant, I didn’t realise that was a cut down wing - looks really great!

    Here's what it looked like before I cut it down:

    Much better now.

    Love the new bumpers on your bug... really cleans up the front!

    So much better! I assumed it was a new wing you’d fitted, a big improvement over the stock one.

    Was a bit soggy out there today! Basher body fitted and 4yr old test pilot at the controls... this is what happens!

    Thanks Squeegie! Guess who forgot to tape up the breather holes in the wheels... Still trying to get all the water out, including trying a bake in the oven (don’t tell the wife!).
