    Backslash Question

    How do I attach the front of the body to the chassis. I see that the rear is easy enough to do but the one from theJang doesn't show how/where to attach the front of the body.

    I am looking for a pic from some of the people that have done the conversion so that I know how to attach the front. The rest of the mod looks pretty easy.

    Thanks for the help. Also if you just grabbed a part from some other model, let me know what it was so that I can snag one for myself.

    Maybe this will help, the pic is not mine, but I had the same doubt as you do now when I started my backslash project...

    Looks like you just trimmed the ends of the Slash mount and drilled holes for the body posts? Is that right? Do they sit to high like that??

    That's what it looks like, I haven't installed mine yet...

    Here is another way for \Backslash body. This was done to raise the body about 10mm from the cross member. Cut a post off stampede mount, epoxied AND screwed into place.
    Never do anything half fast. Hey Ya'll, watch this

    Looks like you lost all your shock mounting positions by doing this.

    Can I use a Slash mount, moved over and shortened instead, as it already has the cross brace there?

    Also, do I need to cut the excess of the front shock tower due to body problems?

    If i remember right Jang references another project he did that donated the mount and i think it was very similar to glbobos.

    You could also do something similar to this:
