Hello URC Forum!
Since I had lost my old account (Machine-_Man) to the site outage, I thought it would be time to finally start a build thread for my Slash 2wd with this new account. I originally bought it from my friend as a rustler with some modifications already done, and my goal has been to transform it into a slash that can perform reasonably well on the track. But since this will mainly be a log for my build over time, the end goal may change (heck there is really no end goal in this hobby!) I will try to keep this first post updated on the major phases of the car as I go along.
Started life as a 2wd rustler.
-MIP driveshafts and outputs
-Traxxas rear hub carriers
-Viper RC 3900kv 4 pole copperhead motor and ESC
-Unknown Kyosho big bore shocks
-Proline 2.2 Dirt Hawg tires and HPI rims
-Extra Proline 2.2 paddle tires on HPI rims
The original reason for the purchase from my friend was for something to drive at the beach, and I hadn't owned any traxxas 2wd trucks before so why not now.
The start of an SCT
-Traxxas slash 2wd front hexes
-Traxxas slash 2wd LCG conversion
-JConcepts choppers premounted front and rear
-RPM gear box housing
-Stock Traxxas Slash body
Phase 2 got me up and off the ground as a ďSCTĒ yet I still had rustler rear arms and driveshafts and no way to mount the body, but it ran and started to look like one.
Right now Iím focused on painting the body (this will be my first) and making custom body mounts, as well as dying the RPM gear box black because the chassis blue and RPM blue donít match as well as I had hoped.
Let me know what you guys think, this will basically be a log of all I do for this truck.
Will update with pics soon!
