    Question Can the rally handle speed bumps?

    Yeah, the question says it all, but does the rally handle them without bottoming out or scraping/hitting anything?

    It's just because I'm thinking of converting my slash to a much more stable rally, but I'm worried about where I could use it.

    The speed bumps (or speed humps, whatever you people in the US call them) in my road are quite short, but are quite angled and rounded, I can get some decent air on the stock pack from them, although with a rally I wouldn't jumps over them, just drive over.

    Anyone have experience with driving on them?

    Thanks!

    We call them speed bumps/humps (i think there is a difference) in the US. Definatly will bottom out on them, look into a TBR skid if ur worried about it. Also If you convert you slash and want to sell the Parts PM me cause id be interested!

    well actually I think you may still bottom out unless during your conversion you still lower the car but not as much as a stock rally so it's more scale to a normal rally car

    Try it out yourself! Go to a hardware shop and buy some zip ties, and pull them around the rockers, and your Slash will have the ride hight of the Rally! I did this on mine.
    This is a signature.

    Yeah, I think I'll convert. If I just crawl over them at like 2 mph then I'll be fine, it does scrape there won't really be any damage.
