    Slash to Buggy Conversion suggestions?

    Hey guys! soon i'll be purchasing a Slash VXL for strictly offroad but would love for it to have the buggy LOOK so i wanted to hear you guys suggestions on how can i achieve this goal. just want the buggy look but keep the slash's performance. sorry if this is a repetitive topic. as you can see from my name im a rustler/bandit guy and this is the first time i've posted in this forum

    thanks in advance!

    You could get a losi scb, or strc lcg kit with Rustler chassis and do a custom body, or build a "backslash".

    Here's a backslash build:

    http://www.ultimatetraxxas.com/projects/backslash/

    and what it looks like:


    If that's what you mean by a "buggy", the backslash is the way to go.

    Or are you a VW baja bug fan? Proline makes a body for that.

    wow!! thats EXACTLY WHAT I MEAN and it's hard to believe that's even a slash. looks like alotta money and modification went along with that build. so what you're sayin is that the "backslash" is my only option?

    Hey so is that body the exact clear body for the "kyosho 777"???

    I don't know if it's your only option, but if that's what you want you can make it work. Even if you don't go all out you can do the body and wing.

    Yeah, that build thread was pretty old. That body is discontinued. Here's a thread that has some other suggestions.

    I did a quick search and couldn't find if anybody has used that exact body for a backslash, but it is made for the same model buggy as mentioned before so I would think that it could be made to work.

    FYI, my search also showed that Nitrohouse has that same Kyosho body online for the same price. Shipping might be less since Nitrohouse is in CA and that ebay listing ships from Japan.
