    1/10 rally to slash 4x4 conversion question

    so to change a 1/10 rally to a 1/10 slash 4x4 LCG all I need to do is to add:

    slash 4x4 body mount posts

    slash 4x4 front and rear bumpers

    slash 4x4 shock towers


    is this all I need to do to a 1/10 4x4 rally roller to get it to be a slash 4x4 LCG?

    The vast majority of the car is the same and although I know the bulkheads ARE slightly different I dont know that youd need to change them. They may very well work. The rear will work for sure as the stock slash 4X4 rear bumper mount is already on the rally...

    The shock towers are fine, no need to change them. The rear body mounts will likely work fine but youll need to add a front mount of some kind for the SC style body.

    So the list I can say for sure is this:
    Rear bumper (not the mount, just the bumper)
    Front bumper and mounts
    Front body mount
    Tires/wheels
    Body

    From what I can see... thats it.

    seems like its easier to transform a 1/10 rally to slash lcg than a slash 4x4 to a LCG? I have a brand new slash 4x4 roller sitting here and I think I am just going to sell it and start from a 1/10 rally instead, what do you all think?

    It's close to a wash, you still need a body and different wheels and tires so either way you go it's worth it imo....

    If you look at hunchbacks post and my original post youll see it is WAY easier to go FROM a rally TO a slash. You need to buy almost the entire chassis setup if you already have a slash. With the rally you just need the body, wheels and tires and the front body mount. Money wise it may be very similar in price if you keep all the stock rally parts. But, if you sell off the rally body and wheels/tires you can re-coup some of the SCT body and wheel costs. Infact, you dont even need wheels, just tires. The stock rally wheels will still work.

    forgot to mention that I already have a slash 4x4 body, tires and rims, body posts, gear box covers, bumpers, so I think I ll just go and get a rally roller, and sell the slash 4x4 roller. They are about $220 on ebay right now, wonder if they will go down a little bit.

    Your good to go then, the gear cover won't fit though. Rally cover is different...

    I actually had a new slash 4x4 roller, sold it and bought a 1/10 rally roller which is coming next week, since I already have the slash 4x4 stuff, i figured it was easier to make the rally roller a lcg slash 4x4.

    From what I understand, I can just switch the bumpers off the rally, body posts, and thats it

    To go from a 1/10 Rally to Slash 4x4 LCG all you need to change are the front and rear bumper, body mounts, body and wheels/tires...thats it. I went the Rally to Slash direction since I didn't have a Slash 4x4. I would have parted out my Slash 4x4 and got the Rally, keeping whatever parts will cross-over as spares. You can never go wrong getting a new vehicle...hehe

    My guess would be he was talking to someone on the phone about converting. Probably bumped the thread so they could find the parts list easier.

    Started with the Rally, got a front 4x4 bumper ($9.50) then got two 4x4 body posts ($8.00) then bolted on a spare rear bumper from the son's 2wd slash onto the rally's rear "bumper", then dusted off an old desert rat body and dropped it into place.
    Now have the best of both worlds and super simple to change from one to the other......
