    extended chassis

    I have been thinking of a way to extend the chassis to standard TC length, so far all I can figure out is that lengthening it in the back between the chassis and the rear components (some kind of easy bolt on like the pede mod) messing with the front will be much more complicated but whatever makes it regular size would be good.

    How wide is a regular TC Car. If you lengthened it to 1/10 scale would you have to get the wider Merv Arms?

    Morten, do you have a pic of the underside. What did you use for a drive shaft? How long is it now from the front wheel hex to the rear? Thanks

    No need to widen it A normal Touring car has a max 190mm limit or a 200mm limit
    The Rally is 185mm so if you want to widen it to 200mm you could use 6mm offset wheels for a total of 197mm

    I only found this one other photo
    when I searched for extended 1/16 Slash


    And I need the answers to those questions as well

    If that is truly a 1/16 e-revo platform under that '86, I may have to buy one

    The bumpers and a-arms suggest it's a Slash VXL

    is that just an un modified e-revo chassis with slash parts?
    I thought it was cut and stretched somehoe?

    I am pretty sure that is stretched. the mini slash and mini erevo both share the same exact chassis, no?
    I am lucky I don't have any money.

    It is stretched at least 2" (50mm)

    this seems like I would be interested in learning more.

    are you saying that you can do online custom fabrication?
    that wuld definitely be worth my time until I get my machinists pass next year!
