    Sweet!!! I have the whole ANZA chassis and it is very nice. I really like the hinge pins and the tie bars. I would also recommend the ANZA caster blocks too. I want to get an STRC gunmetal bulkead for mine. Post pics when the build is done.

    ya i will. i almost gave in and got a 4x4 slash or rustler for speed but i like my 2wd slash so i thought id fix it up a bit. next on the parts list is a proline bellcrank and maybe some big bores. also thinkin about a new servo for better steering. steering seems a bit slow and weak. will be worse when i put some stampede wheels n tires on for bashing.

    Way to cut loose and get the goods!
    Once you get the pins take the time to put a shim in between the swing arms to take out any slop, get a few metric #3 washers and you can file them down on sandpaper to tweak them if need be. Some dry powdered graphite makes for good lube on all pivot points and on the pins.

    The Anza hingepins replace the stock pins that hold the a-arms, casters, ect. They are made to be stronger, but I think they are also lighter. The tie bars are used to strengthen the hingepins and brace the a-arm attachment. The stock slash has a fiberglass one up front but not in the rear. An aluminum bulkhead will be stronger, and the lcg kit will lower the center of gravity of the vehicle so it won't flip over as much and perform better.

    Good idea, using graphite for those areas. I didn't think about it.
