    Finally Finished My 1st Slash Makeover..

    Wow this was a crazy project... Between trying to work on it after getting off work
    and taking care of my 9 month old son I thought i never finished it. LOL For
    my first makeover i wanted to do the MT slash conversion. You know it gets
    so frustrating when you have no clue on what your doing or if your doing it right.
    I guess thats why they call it a learning experience. But after your done its so
    overwhelming with joy that you'll do it again. Some of the paint didn't come
    out like i wanted it to but im very happy with the end resolts. I also want to
    THANK some of the guys here for there advise and solutions.
    SO HERE IS MY NEW SLASH 4X4 MT.....









    BASH!! BASH!! BASH!! & BASH IT AGAIN!! <CAGE RAGE>

    Looks sweet, but will those tires clear the wheel wells if you hit a bump (or turn)?

    If you infact mean the Monster 2200, you will be wanting Traxxas part# TRA5626. This will bolt into the 2 factory holes in the chassis. Personally I am quite happy with it and think it looks rather good, unfortunately I did not receive the 2 secondary screws with mine to attach the On/Off Switch, so.. I just use 2 small Body Clips...

    The MMP's (Mamba Max Pro) have a different ESC Hold Down, I believe it is called "Flappy" or something along those lines, many people on here have them. They can be found easily enough and I am sure people here can give you some feedback on it.

    Goodluck, hope you find what you're looking for!

    I mounted the esc with 3m plastic velcro strip i got it at target it comes in a 3in strip
    I cut it in half perfect fit for the bottom of the esc with the strc mounting plate on
    Piece the other half bottom of the esc. Haven't had any issues very strong stuff and i had
    Some bad wrecks. I tryed the double sticky tape but after the third wreck it popped off.
    With the 3m i can remove it and put it back on..

    It looks like you did a great job of putting it together! How does the dual fan setup work for you? With the stock setup, it would overload the VXL bec.

    Looks nice! Would look better w/o the tacky side bumpers, they don't do anything now since you have the big tires.

    I agree... after looking at it run i thought the same thing lol. Took them off
    Earlier...
    El sob the only reason i connected the fan was cause i thought with those huge
    Tires it would make the motor run hot but since i geared down i don't even
    Need it. Also funny things is when i first hook it up only one fan came on. But
    When i hooked up my mini 3s 1300mah both fans came on. I ran it with one fan
    Running didn'T have any issue with the Rig. So when im switching from one
    3s to another 3 s i pop in the mini 3s for a few minutes just to cool it faster
    Before i pop the next 3s..
