    You could swap in a Slash 4x4 Chassis. You would also need a Slash 4x4 center driveshaft, to accommodate the longer chassis.

    To use a Slash 4x4 body you would need to also replace the front and rear shock towers with Slash 4x4 Shock towers. The Hoss 4x4 shock towers use the new clip-less body mounting system. The Slash 4x4 shock towers use the traditional body mounting method necessary to use a Slash 4x4 body.

    The Hoss already has the longer wheelbase.

    The drive shaft is the same length as the slash, 139mm.

    Iím in the middle of making a Hosspede.

    I initially tried to do just the body but had to modify the mounts to get it to fit, kinda.

    I have a Hoss chassis, drive shaft, and cover due in any day.

    Are you sure about that? Slash 4x4 has 324 mm wheelbase.
    I dont have the Hoss, but on traxxas info page it has 295 mm wheelbase.
    Center drive shaft for slash 4x4 is not 139 mm.

    Fiskpin: Yes you could do that.

    The Slash 4x4 center driveshaft is longer than the Hoss/Rustler 4x4 driveshaft.

    longer wheelbase ?

    Sorry, got some part numbers mixed up.

    The Hoss is longer than the stampede but not as long as the Slash.

    I clearly stated I was coming from a Stampede. No need to be snippy.

    No problem, good luck with your build. I think your stampede will performe better with the Hoss wheelbase.

    Thanks for showing me the difference. Itís very helpful. I only ran 4Pedes but of course everyone likes to mix and match parts in this world.

    As others have stated, yes.

    But be aware of the 2 different chassis used for a Slash. The LCG-chassis would require more additional parts then the HCG-chassis.
