    Last year I did the conversion to my father's Slash 4x4! It was pretty straight forward. I didn't have any problems with it. Took a little time but the way it changed his truck was more than worth it.

    I believe the less expensive one would be the 2wd version..

    Yes! The difference in handling is just shy of amazing! My father's driving skills went way up! It doesn't roll over much and it is way more stable at speed. I highly recommend you go ahead and do it

    The less expensive is for the 4x4 but it only comes with nerf bars and battery holder

    there isn't really no need to prove which one is cheaper. its common sense that 2wd is less parts than 4x4 which will cost less, just my .02 cents.

    for OP get the whole kit than buying it piece by piece, saves you time and trouble

    I just converted, I bought the complete kit on amazon under 50 bucks. Included everything. The only real challenge was getting the servo horn and steering linkage lined up proper.

    you have to center the TX trim to 0 and put the servo horn at 1 o'clock then adjust from there.

    i jump mine like there was no tomorrow! i like more the lcg because of the handling in the air is just awesome. it bottom out a bit easier than the hcg but scratches will come of course...

    That is what I was concerned with, the bottoming out. I'm sure at some point I'll upgrade to the LCG. Do the stock bumpers fit the LCG and the HCG?
