    Scale Slash?

    Alright guys... i need your help on this one.

    -STRAIGHT TO THE POINT: I'm going to start building a slash that has a lot of scale components ie: lights, body, wheels tires.

    -what i NEED help with is finding some products that would help the scale look. I do not plan on bashing this one. I will drive it and a already have a vxl / lipo for it.

    -PICS would help me.

    -I ALREADY know which wheels / tires i want so i do NOT need help there.

    -Once i start building it,... i'll start a new thread

    -Also i'm looking for a ladder bar set up if anyone knows where i can find this. If you don't know what it is then you prob can't help find one. =)
    big gulp huh? well, see ya later.

    I use the HBZ roll cage...bear in mind its only a "Half Cage"...does add a bit more of a scale look to the slash..it also adds a lil strength as it braces the chassis to the rear shock tower.., but it also adds weight, but if your going scale you probly arent too concerned with that!
    lol...I am at 20%

    check out RC4wd.com they make a lot of scale parts (and expensive) parts for scale RC 4x4. And yes, they do have an already made rollcage for the slash chassis..err.. about half the price of the Slash itself
    Myth busted: Blitz is not faster on the track.

    I am running 50wt all around. I was going to grab the Big Bores but just can't justify spend $60 on shocks right now.

    They have held up great so far! The key is to be able to drive avoiding roll-overs!

    Rikk (OSF) from rccrawler makes scale light pods with lights and a nice scale roll cage for the slash. its a full roll cage. just a regular one or one with spare tires. its a little pricey though. the reg one is $180 and the one with spare tire(s) is $225!!! ouch, i know, but they look wicked! he makes them out of 3/16 brakeline.

    yup...It wheelies real easy with good traction, but I have already taken the cage off. It makes it too difficult to do clean jumps as the rear is always dropping when I try to clear somethin resulting in a hard landing.

    thunder tiger makes a pro 2wd race truck with a real Ladder bar set up. It's in one of the last RC Driver mags. Suspension is true scale/realism.

    I dunno? how much does a alum tranny weigh? the cage weighs about 13.5 ounces, almost a pound. Too much weight for me.
