So I completed this build with a few spare parts and not a cent spent: then I had to buy the Traxxas Fender Flair set
So I converted my on-road Slash:
I rebuilt some XX-long shocks, locked the rear-diff with blu-tack, took the lights that weren't being used from a Stampede, Stampede 4x4 T-Bone shock guards (front), Proline Badlands I had on a shelf, 50,000 weight oil in the front diff and the Summit body I had spare, with custom built body mounts.
It's a fun trail truck but I seriously need to work out a better motor as the VXL system 'cogs' painfully at low speeds.
The final product:
One thing I like about this truck, it actually has 2 LED kits in it, b/c it was way too long for one kit to stretch from end to end: this means that I have great underbody lighting which solves the problem BigSquid RC complained about here
Another thing: 1 decent 5800mah 2S LiPo went for well over an hour without running flat... I ran out of light before I ran out of battery.
