    < Rally Slash anyone? >

    I've seen a few of you guys with rally wheel/tire combos and its got me thinking. How about a rally body to go with the look. Any of you guys know of a body that may work? And what rally tire/wheel combos fit?

    I know any of the 26mm hpi rally rims work, I have these part numbers.

    hpi 4470 M (tire)

    hpi 3809 (rim)

    they look awesome and they hook up really well.......

    google those part #'s ....

    I am kind of partial to the trophy truck look, but a rally slash would look cool with some kind of subaru body on it......

    I've seen some pics on here of a Slash with the Rally Wheels & Tires on it. Looks pretty cool.

    The old HPI RS4 Rally had a Subaru body that might work...

    while I like the idea of this, the huge range of the Slash's suspension, you're going to have to either slam the car or cut the body high, so it doesn't drag when you compress the suspension. but I think the Slash would look hot with a rally body on it.

    ive been searching and i can find several bodies that have the correct width but the wheel base will be off... the slash has a 8.1" WB and most of the hpi bodies have a 10.1" WB

    I found out that my Slash fits perfectly on a 1/10th TC setup board. The wheelbase and width is spot on. However, when I looked at 1/10th bodies they were all 2 inches too long. I couldn't make sense of it.

    sure will. I do know that the rally tires look small because i've already had them on it. HPI super nitro rally wheels look much better, but still kinda small. I'll get some pics with both sets.

    Agreed. I'd love to have a mini Suby to match my suby.
