    SLASH MT kinda

    i just put the talons on this truck and raised the body so the tires wouldnt rub. i used the little black washer parts u get with the shock pieces u get when u buy a new vehicle...and a longer screw...
    im a basher so this works great for me,i think the truck handles so much better,less roll over,i think because the tires make the car so its not so top heavy...

    Looks nice
    Did you raised the hood only or the chassis as well ?
    It's the standard shocks or a longer ones ?

    i think thats what im gonna do. except probably with the proline trencher or badlands tire cause i heard the traxxas tire talons dont have much traction. your slash looks fantastic though. im with upbasher though. how does that thing jump? im assuming good since there is less chance of bottoming out.

    You have the body sitting nicely balanced on your rig. I think the concern will be the vulnerability of snapping off the mount extensions so best to have some spares! Those larger tires on the back sure offer better bite but mine seems to hook up better on the spiked tires on the 2.8 wheels.
    Have fun, nice looking stance on the body

    i think they are like my slash wheels and will be labeled front and rear if you look at the inside of the wheel. they are labeled front and rear because of different offsets. not sure about the stampede wheels though.

    heres a thought ive tried recently. if u have a set of junk tires or foams, go to a hobby store or home improvment store and buy 1/4 in tack nails and put holes 1/2 in from the edges it the tire and insert the nails(wont work on super softs or softs, they tend to fold over like grass when u drive ur car over it) cheap and relativly useful spiked tires

    You should try 17mm hubs and run 1/8 buggy wheels on that rig. I love em on my slashes.
