    I wondered that myself...

    I didn't like the test-fitting...









    You can do things to make it look better, plus you have to do some fabrication to get the body to mount to the Slash chassis.

    The body fits the WB perfectly, but the tires sticking out a mile on each side just looks goofy...

    I never actually mounted it to my slash, but at the time I was trimming a Cherokee to fit my Wraith and somebody asked this same question so I took a few photos on the slash. It will fit with the simple addition of some Grave Digger (Stampede) rear body posts.






    I may do this one day. I'd remove the rear bumper and run it with 1.9 Ripsaw tires.

    I've had a bunch of Pro-line bodies and two JConcepts and I really don't see any difference as far as quality. Sometimes just plain old bad luck will ruin a body. I go with a "buy what looks cool" philosophy.

    The Axial 1.9's work. I just had to reverse the screws on the castor blocks to clear the wheel. They're narrower than an SC truck tire, so they don't look right with all bodies. But I think they'd work with the Cherokee.

    And my slash with 2.2 Axial Ripsaw tires and a HPI Jeep body:


    It rides high but works real good in the sand.
