    Allright. I'm computer illiterate. Will someone tell me how to post pics? Can I not browse my hard drive and upload from there??

    Ok. Let's see if I've got it.



    Thanks for the help rag6. Just got my Slash 3 weeks ago. I love it. Couldn't wait to start changing things around on it. New to the r/c game.

    Sorry if I am bug illiterate, but what is attached to the bumper mount that goes up towards the rear body mounts? Looks like a roll cage? As far as the help, no problem, nice paint!

    That's part of the original bumper mount. I just turned it up and tucked it under the body and tightend it down with screws that didn't have shoulder stops on them.

    Looks great! You beat me to the color usage! That orange is my new favorite color. It will be on my next bug!

    I wasn't that sure about Bug bodies until I tried one, but I wouldn't go back now :-)

    I am running 4S (5Ah 25C) on an EZrun80A ESC with KD36-74-06XL 2800kv motor (110Amps!), using 32-pitch gearing 15/56, plus a couple of other bits and bobs (RPM bits, gyro, linear springs in the rear, wheeliebar etc). Top speed is just over 40mph, and the bug body's aerodynamics seem just fine up to that speed (unlike the stock body!).

    My Baja Bug on a stretched Rustler chassis

    Inspired by a couple of other members, I decided to stretch a Rustler chassis a bit and fit a Pro-Line Baja Bug body for the Slash. I wanted the wheels to fit underneath the fenders in a more scale-like manner. I used the Pro-Line Protrac wheels on it to bring things in a little. I also used just the skid plate from the RPM bumper on the front. The rear "cage" is just a modified Slash rear bumper, an idea borrowed from another builder.

    I'll be putting on some STRC red aluminum shock bodies soon as well as adding a simple interior and driver.

    This will get thrashed around this weekend with a VXL system, so I wanted to post some pictures before it got scratched up.

    Thanks Lars and TR! Lars, I can't wait to see your Scorcher-inspired bug! I've been following your thread.

    Thanks again,
    Steve
