    Can we upgrade from 2x4 Slash?

    I already have a decked out slash (2x4 version):

    -Big bore shocks
    -Gladiator tires/revolver wheels
    -Waterproof VXL system
    -2.4GHz radio
    -Lipos

    Will it be possible to just buy th chassis, transmission, etc and upgrade mine to a 4x4 slash?

    Thanks,

    all you will have left of your slash is the shocks, radio, VXL, and batteries. It would be easier and much cheaper to wait a little while, then buy a roller new on ebay.

    Yeah, a conversion just wouldn't work. Here's what you would keep from Slash 2WD:

    Body (assuming you don't care about the truck looking like a Slash 4X4)

    Shocks (but not springs--Slash 4X4 springs are much stiffer)

    Rear wheels and tires

    Battery strap

    Body clips and some screws

    Everything else would be new. So, no savings there.
