    Slash body.... why would you?

    I haven't seen all the specs on the little Rally yet. Since the width and the wheelbase are the same as the little Slash, I would assume you'd be able to slap the 1/16 shell on it as well. Anybody have a take on that?

    The street drifting lowered truck look might be pretty cool.

    Taking a look at the exploded views of each, it does appear that both the Rally and Slash are very similar, save for a few parts. And that might look pretty cool.

    Looks to me like all you would have to do is change the rear body mount of the Rally to the Slash rear mount and you would be good to go.

    Hey Matt
    I lowered my Slash using some small spacers and threw on some 31mm HPI Wheels to see what it would look like. Not even sure what it to call it but I like it. I ordered some 1/10 TC Wheels and going to pick up a Rally body when they become available.







    I also installed some stiffer springs I got at a hardware store

    Nice, I see potential there with the Slash bodies for sure. Hey Cheese, why don't you go ahead and get started on some Rally trailers, I'll take the first one. Traxxas has definitely distracted me and my disappointment with not seeing the Titan anytime soon with this cool little drifter.... I'm sure I'm not the only one?

    That would be sweet, a trailer for the Rally behind a MT or Slash, with a ramp tailgate. I'm sure I can use the aluminum from my Titan Trailer seeing I have a few more months!!!
    I will see what I can come up with.

    The Rally is based on the 1/16 Slash. Same arms, shafts ect...

    The differences being limiters in the shocks, springs, shock oil, bumpers, body mounts, body, wheels and tires.

    That's what we've pretty much figured out so far crash. So what you're saying is that a 1/16 Slash body should fit right on the Rally with a few body post adjustments? And look pretty good on there too?
