    Alternative Slash 2WD Body Mount (extendable)?

    I'm adapting a Delta Plastiks body onto my Slash 2WD (build kit edition).

    Traxxas I found out through their customer service does not offer any extendable body mounts other than the original. One option I found is the body mounts used on the Monster Slash conversion from Proline: https://www.prolineracing.com/perfor...-slash-2wd.asp

    Any other options out there recommended? I'd like to make sure the extendable/adjustable range of the body mounts is wide enough to be able to fit different non-traxxas bodies on it.

    Not that I know of, but I would recommend just cutting the holes to fit the current body mount.

    Issue is Traxxas rear body mount sits way lower than the Delta Plastiks custom body. There is no contact between the body mounts and the body as is. Some type of extension is hence needed. I'm surprised there isn't more on the market other than Proline..

    I guess you would get the proline screw-ons and raise them.

    I've seen Integy make aluminum ones, but they seem to have the exact same design as the Proline ones. I would just pick the Proline body mounts, since it is cheaper, and probably would hold up longer than the Integy aluminum.
    Everyday's a gift, thus now is called the present.

    Maybe the Stampede Grave Digger mounts will work. I’ve used the rear before with high bodies.

    I use the proline extended body mounts on my 2wd slash and bash it pretty hard, and they hold up great.
