    honestly i dont know... but traxxas has the cvd's for the jato and if they fit the same ones should be listed for the slash... it still early call them 1-888-TRAXXAS they close at 7

    The jato cvds will not work on the slash without a major rework of the suspension. I have been running a 3500 on 7 cells and have over 25 runs now and my stock shafts show zero signs of twisting.
    I tried being reasonable, I didn't like it.

    How about the Rustler CVD's. Most of the other parts for the Slash have the same part numbers as a Rusty...

    They may not fit. The electric Stampede/Rustler/Bandit arms are longer than the front ones. The Nitro Stampede/Rustler arms, which is what the Slash has, are the same length as the front arms. That being said, the CVD's for the electric rigs may not fit properly.

    Personally, I would avoid using CVD's. I have ran them on three different trucks, and I haven't really cared for them much. Once they are totally shot, I'm switching back to the factory sliders... or I'll upgrade to some Jato plastic sliders like I did with my N-Stampede.

    Yep plastic sliders for me. They work good, and take some of the shock out of the drivetrain.
