    I guess it should the slash and the slayer use the same body just difference holes so you should be able to use it you would have to cut holes for the engine body post and fuel tank in it.

    Here's the body on my Slayer This one is from my Slash have not had the time to do one with my Slayer. Its a real good fit .

    Use rear holes for the wing they match up perfectly with rear body mounts. Front holes just make your own. Plenty of room inside for all the nitro stuff.

I'll post some pictures after I get everything put on and the body painted! Keep you guys posted, Again Thanks!

    Personally, I feel it needs to sit a lil lower, which would mean losing the nerf bars, and either losing the front and rear bumper or tirmming the body to fit there.

    It does look really good though! I may use one if I ever get a second Slayer for an E-Slayer conversion.

    Yeah that's the plan, looks like he has it just sitting on there to give an idea how it would look on the slayer. I'm going to put it as low as I can! With my sweet painted body and imitation badlands, its going to look pretty sweet! Will have it posted by the end of the week, so check back!

    Here it is back on the Slash. Yes you have to remove the nerf bars and rear bumper.

    Here some pictures of my body mounted onto my slayer, had to remove nerf bars and part of the rear bumper, also the front bumper! Also has Traxxas 17mm hexes and Big Blocks wheels!




    I dont know if I want to remove the rear bumper entirely because that will then expose the rear sway bars for damaging them?

They make a pro big blocks that are soft compound the there 27.99 plus 8.99 shipping! They have other different types of treads also, like racing spikes, mohawks, slick street tires, and others as well. Go and check it out!!!! Thanks for the comments, hopefully the next body I do will be alot cooler!!!!!!!!!!

    Oh I forgot to tell you guys one thing! When you mount the Baja Bug Body onto the Slayer, you have to use the spot on the body where you mount the wing (AKA spoiler). So then from there in order for it to mount correctly I had to cut and remove the EZ-START assembly and cut apart the rear body mounts to make them look like the front body mounts!!! That will allow the body mounts to go up into the deep holes of the Baja Body! Then I had to mount the EZ-START assembly to the roll hoop, so from there you have to cut out the screw holes and wire harness holes to correctly mount the EZ-START, or other similar place that is easy access. But where I mounted it there, I have to take the body off every time I need to start my truck. I will post some pics here shortly or in the morning if this confuses you guys! Thanks

    Alright guys here's the pictures that I said I would post! There might be a different possible way of doing it but I think it would be really hard to put the pins on to hold the body in place, but I don't know! Anyways here they are:



    So keep in mind that this is what you might have to do! I really don't think there is a better way and if there is, please post your comments or ideas!

    Ick. That area on my slayer is crowded enough as is. lol. Between my air filter, and my OS .21 carb being farther forward than the 3.3 and bigger....yeah.

    Maybe I can do that when I get my E-Slayer together one day.

    I got my bug body yesterday and painting now I took the rear bumper off and used the brace cut off the bars and painted it turned it over and it makes a nice little bumper. I had the plate for the sway bar because I got the revo sway bar I don't have the ez start so it's not a problem.

    Your body must not be the actually Slash body because the rear of mine doesn't look anything like yours where you mounted it to the rear! Look at my pictures compared to yours! Of the bug body!

    I may look into getting one for my beater body. My stock Slayer body is starting to give up on me. Dont thing it really likes all the cartwheels and landing on its top....

    The Baja bug body looks great too.

    i think it looks awsome from the back due to the fact that like a real bug, the slayer has independant rear supension

    Put some of the stickers on. If your going to get a body for your slayer get the one for the 2.5 revo #3238-61 it fits the slayer better.

    Used the slash bug body... Didn't want to take off the bumpers or nerfs because of how much I use them Had to cut out alot for the easy start, but it turned out good for what I was going for.

    I have done it. It took some work getting the body on it, especially the wing. They say the Revo 2.5 fits better.

    Nice man! I like what you did w/ the back window too. Was that body off the slash? Tryin to figure out why mine didn't have a wing.

    Thanks TonyDMT. Yea, the body is actually for the slash. Took some work to get the wing on right. Even now I have to play with it to mount the body from the rear. Its a little tight from the back. The wing came with mine attached to the front of the clear body.

    Why didn't you come up with some more colors for your car? Get a little more creative. I did it all with spray cans. I should get an airbrush kit. Most of all a mask...hehhee.

    I used Candy Red, and bright white. Everything else is decals I collected. If you noticed I cut out the motor. I did not like it all. Makes the car look like a radio shack toy....hahhaa. Enjoy

    Wow. LOL! I missed the wing on the front of the plastic! I actually owned a '64 White Baja bug a couple years back. I also didn't want to go too far into detail since I am really hard on the bodies and am sure this is the first of many. My stock Slayer one is about to fall apart!

    The stock body is garbage. The desert rat body is thicker and holds up way better. Even the baja buggy body is stronger material.

    cool pipe! Any performance gain, or just looks? I would think it might slow it down a tad with the stinger design...

    I was just reading up on the pipe and found that it may be more harmful than good. I have noticed since I put it on that the engine starts to hesitate or stutter under WOT. Messed around with it alot, but the troubleshooting section says that some dual exhaust's don't give enough backpressure for the fuel feed. I gotta figure out what's going on.

    maybe you could put some kind of reducers in the stingers to get the overall outlet tip area the same size as the stock exhaust's single stinger... then you would have more back pressure.

    What I did was cut the tips down a little bit below the bend. I also think when I put it on, I didnt get the header bolts tight. I lost them both and think that is why I was losing pressure. I just got some more from my LHS and so I will be doing a test and tune tonight.

    After my initial testing last night, I think I got her figured out. When it warmed up, it was screaming! I didn't have my buddy's temp gun though and think she may be too lean still. No more hesitation at WOT at least!
