    this is before I have the XO-1 17mm adapter, what I have on here is my REVO 17mm as you can see the wheels a bit flush in, I wanted it a bit more out.

    with XO-1 17mm adapter

    didn't like how the body move around like it need support so, I put a side body post.

    also a bumper foam to support under heady pressure of high speed pass

    then, I thought the foam bumper is not supporting the body too well...added the XO-1 bumper just need some trimming to fit then added a diffuser underneath.

    You catch the bumper support in the window just right, looks like a dashboard.

    That sucker is meaner looking than an XO, BTW.

    How fast you got 'er up to?

    I didn't even think about that

    thanks, i'm very happy with how it turns out.

    I never really clocked it though so, I don't know how fast it is

    Okay, Nice looking last build, but I'm really confused regarding the Protrac arms and my Traxxas 6851/2R drive shafts... Can I still use them together with the extended track width?

    Protrack states:

    "**While the stock axles will work with the ProTrac™ Suspension Kit, some customers may want a heavy duty CVD option for their truck (for Racing or Extreme Bashing purposes). The following MIP option has been confirmed to work with the kit:
    MIP #11104 X-Duty CVD Kit (2 Required for Front and Rear)
    MIP #10133 X-Duty Front Axle (2 Required for Front Left and Front Right)

    Additional note: If you already own X-Duty CVDs for the Slash®/Stampede® 4x4, you can use MIP #11105 Male bones to convert your drives to the new length. Axles can then be skipped in this case."


    Seems the formula is there...?

    the stock axles they're mentioning are the plastic ones. The splined CVD's from traxxas, your telescopic splined has very little amount of contact, that is why I didn't use my XO-1 driveshafts and went with tekno hybrid instead.

    Okay, thanks.. I'll see how it all settle in, but maybe a set of MIP's like Pro-Line indicates may be in order...

    with the new keyed stub axle from MIP I think its a better choice than the previous hex pin type, knowing that its a 5mm stub axles cant really withstand the hard bashing/jumping and tend to break at the weak point by the hex pin.

    Yeah, I'm thinking a 5mm spindle with no hole is stronger than a 6mm with a hole... I broke another one

    yes you can, I even put spacer inside the shock shaft to make it even shorter and the rear I left it alone.

    Okay, so why the standard rear shock assembly? I was thinking I would like to stiffen the whole Rally assembly by using the stiffer red GTR springs, but I need the shorter GTR shocks for that. And the shock towers it would seem..

    no, I have XO-1 F/R shock towers but, the rear GTR shocks I left it alone as it is, since its manageable by switching around on how you position the mounting hole and still get the right ride height.

    Still going strong, nice!

    Are you aware of any arms in aluminium that are the same length as the pro-trac...I keep breaking them on my slash so I want to replace them but keep the extra width?

    Cheers,
    Craig.
    Rock n Rolla !

    I believe the TeamRCE magnesium arm do make it on stock and pro trac form mentioned by thedreadedend on post #263 only thing that I didn't buy it, is cause of the price but you paid what you get for the quality.

    rear splitter


    cut an opening for the arm to clear.
    trim this part

    shortened this

    this is only a piece of thin cutting board that I cut to shape only to fill in the gap

    the screws are not screwed into the chassis, its only there to keep the plastic together.

    front end part
    stock bumper support cut like so

    trim this part of the arm from binding to the front splitter

    drill hole in the middle (front splitter)

    continue next post

    That is so cool how you grafted on the OX-1's under tray. You had that one shortened XO-1, which made me think of getting a TRCE chassis for the Rally and grafting on the XO-1 under tray

    received my Castle Motor fan today and drill some holes at both side for air to pass thru. also took the receiver out of the receiver box cause the fan plug hit the chassis brace no matter if I plug it at channel 3 or 5. I'm not really going to run this anywhere near wet surface so, this will be fine

    I was actually trying to mount my receiver box just like yours last night and I even make a ESC mount plate to move the ESC a little bit toward the motor so that the receiver box will fit next to it but, it got complicated lol. I cant turn my ESC the other way around like yours either cause the motor wires are not long enough, oh well..i'm fine with how it turns out anyway

    got to run it today at a fresh pave parking lot..... very smooth.

    only thing about the TRCE chassis is the shape of it, it doesn't seem to contour the XO-1 under tray but, all in all.... its workable. my shortened XO-1 is like the TRCE but without the aluminum bulkheads

    its your choice to go that route, I know a guy from other forum and he has the TRCE. at first it was a full race slash 4x4 at the same time a basher with not a single problem at all then, he turns it into a GT8 like ours, that's when he stripped a spur gear which he find it very odd cause he bash it hard when it was a slash in the woods and being the spur/pinion expose not one single time "he said" anything got jam to cause the spur to strip, now that its a GT8 a small rock jam, that's all it takes.

    when I have my GT8 XO-1, I saw a white stuff on my spur, i'm thinking like....what is this powder thing but, with the gear being Mod1 I guess it just crushed it lol.

    Yeah everyone is telling me the Mod 1 can run open. On Road I can see, off road, there are so many variables. I still think stuff will get caught. Then they say steel gears all around. I think then a person is breaking something more expensive than plastic gears..., like motor shafts...?

    Ah well it's academic anyways as The TRCE are not in stock, so I may never get one. Just dreaming out loud
