    What chassis is this off of?

    I'll have to look a little further, but is it Rustler or Sport? I'm looking through the pictures of both and they look similar. Interested to see how this handles...

    Yeah it looks closest to the Rustler, but still different.

    that straight up looks like a N-rustler chassis....the front end looks extended and i think the Gas tank is larger too.....hhhmmmm

    this is a new chassis - longer. part # is 4422 and 4423. The Rusty is 4430/4431

    Lets see what its going to take to convert from rustler to slash -LOL!!

    Rustler VXL front end.....

    New bumpers....

    What the Nitro Slash pic? Look at the Traxxas home page, or in the product section.

    It looks similar to a Nitro Rustler but with HUGE bumpers to handle my mad driving skilz!

    you're going to need a new chassis and tank along with associated parts. Front and rear bumper as well as a VXL front end. Body and tires of course. If I recall, the rear Arms are 2wd slash

    Man, I thought about your truck as soon as I saw this thing. I'm liking the extra aluminum in the rear, I keep snapping bumper/battery boxes, so the aluminum will either be great or horrible.

    Extra aluminum really wont help with breaking battery boxes. A little extra weight in the front will though. Problem is the fact that the rear of the car is so much heavier. Really not balanced well. I was able to get it a little better by adding the aluminum parts and the large aftermarket shocks. Also use throttle control when jumping. A slight tap of the brakes will level it right out. I do see with the N.Slash that the rear bumper will be a weak point. If it lands on its tail its gonna break. Thats why I chose the T-Bone rear wheely bar. It absorbs most rear impacts without damage. Cant wait to see how the N. Slash handles. I will bet it needs to be widened to reduce roll-overs.

    Going back many many years ago, looks like the stretched chassis from the GTR...



    But, it's a modified version of the Nitro Rustler...

    Mine is just a modded rusty as well. I wonder what the upper deck looks like.

    Hey, instead of thread copping, it would be best to start a new thread so your question will be answered properly. This thread is a couple of years old.
