View Full Version : mini revo to slash conversion help
02-29-2012, 07:08 PM
hey guys. ive had a mini revo vxl for a few months now and I want to change it over to a mini slash. now most of the forums that I have read say to switch all these parts over for the body to fit cause the revo tires are too wide.
I ordered a set of factory slash tires and body. im just curious if I left the revo chassis the way it is and added the slash tires and body...wont it be a widetrack slash basically?''
the slash suspension is narrower than the revo...so with thinner tires and maybe some trimming the body should fit right on there.
Just looking to see if someone else has done this.

That may look pretty weird. Buy go for it! I have a combo of both. I switched my rear arms for merv ones. Also half shafts as well. I love my mash.
my tires are a little larger than the slashes but almost as wide as the mere stockers

i did a slash to merv conversion and i was running my stock slash wheels until i got my proline tires and with the wide merv stance with slash tires it hardly flips it slides across the pavement,,,,, it doesnt look that wierd

Ook. I haven't put my stock slash wheels on since I switched. You don't need to switch suspension.
All you need is the a arms. Half shafts and the push and tie rods. And I think body mounts if you plan on getting a slash body. And front and rear bumpers. If your going all the way.

Your right, forgot about gearing. I never changed mine im still running my slash gearing.
Quick thread jacking, is there benefit if i switch the merv gearing? I have a Slash with Merv Rear arms, and wide tires.
