    Can one make the slash into a Tour-Truck?

    Hey all,
    I recieved my Slash 4x4 for xmas after being out of the RC game since 95' where I had a stable of nice rigs. Thus far the Slash 4x4 is such an awesome rig offroad.

    I had some thoughts of making a 'Tour Truck" Setup...

    Thoughts or suggestions on what pieces to make it work?

    Thanks!

    Sorry for not being to specific, I just had a thought of making an indoor/asphalt setup similar to a touring car but for the Slash 4x4. I've seen only one so far, but it was a slash 2wd.

    Just looking for options for my Slash 4x4...

    Hope this helps

    Good call, this is the kind of alternate setup I am shooting for. A setup for parking lot & indoor hard surface racing.

    I forget who it was, but they threw a great big onroad body on their 2slash and turned it into a big car.

    He said it went through rears quickly. I agree! I've got anacondas on my 2slash and I don't think they're going to last too long.

    The 4slash should do much better on tire wear. 4 anacondas, and dropping the suspension a bit could make for a very capable neighborhood onroad car. Not like a true TC that needs clean pavement.
