View Full Version : Why not use this body too!

All I had to do was swap out the rear body posts and drill two new holes on the Slash body. Doesn't look too bad other then the bumper foam sticking out and now I won't abuse the KB body soo much.

It is just the body off my Traxxas 1/16th scale Slash VXL.

Looks cool! Need to cut wheel wells out more? Or does it work fine as is?

lol my slash has looked like that for a long time.

It actually works fine..I only ran it for a bit but didn't notice any rubbing.

It does look cool. With the front foam removed you could use some extra lexan and build a front air deflector... maybe some side skirts... it could easily look like a Nascar truck with only a little effort. Cool idea... I totally get that you want to save your KB body... I bought one JUST for a shelf queen look... I wont ever run it... ill just run the stock body.

just as an fyi..I have been running the KB body also and it is pretty tough. It has hit the curb a few times and still looks good.

With the slash body on there, is there enough room to possibly get a dished wheel on there for more width without it sticking out? I would like to gain a little width without going outside the body.

I just ordered a merv body and got the mounting posts to swap it onto my KB. I will post pics once I get it all squared away. I'm hoping that the merv body will allow more air flow to the esc and motor. I run 2 stock batteries in series with the stock pinion and it can get a little warm here in az. Just a different option and trying to save my KB at least until they start selling them. Anyone else try running the Muchmore Absolute 26mm wheel tire combo. Got a set for $32 at Lhs. Good balance of grip and drift. Id say 75% race tire, 25% drift tire. Glue not the best though.
