    New to short course and i need lots of help

    I got an old stampede and i want to make a slash prerunner and i am want to make it into a pure track truck. I am looking at getting all proline and arms, suspension, everything i need help with tires and part numbers for the bearings and stock parts i will need. My spending limit is $300 but if i need to spend more i can. Here are some pictures of what i want the truck to look like

    Do you want the front end out a little wider with long travel?

    You'll get a good amount of down travel from the protrac arms with your shocks mounted to the inner-most holes on the arms. Both front and back. And, remember to mount the top of the shocks on the outer-most holes. Not the best handling, but it will give you the result you want regarding looks. If you could get the actual raptor slash, you'd nail the looks you want. Easy.

    The slash wheelbase is almost 3 inches longer than the stampede, that body won't fit. I do know that there is a raptor body for the pede though. I think its a pro-line body. That would be scale to your look.

    Are you going to extend the stampede's wheelbase?
