    my 4x4 backslash platinum

    here's a few pics of the new 4x4....













    i've got the AKA wheel adapters on order because i have many many sets of 1/8 buggy pre-mounts, but i have to admit i like these alot too.

    enjoy!

    i have the bulldog lid on one of my 8ights, and it didn't look like it fit very well. i think i might try one of the ofna lids as they tend to run a bit bigger.

    Proline Crowd Pleaser 2.0 SP2 MP777 fits really well with little trimming involved.

    Bulldog all the way!

    I got one for the RC8B, fits great, just as good as the mp777 body as far as I can tell.

    Do backslashes handle like buggys or are they more of a slash with a wing?

    Its definitely not a buggy, but it handles better, with a lower cg (due to the smaller, lower body) and the wing helps with jumping.

    INFRNL, there is a nose piece for the body, I just decided not to put it on.

    It's the lower piece from the rpm 4x4 bumper, with a stock rustler bumper on the front. Bolts right up!

    All the water would get into the foams in the tires.

    Just add some stickers and scuff them in the dirt.. The "White" will soon tone down. lol
    Always in Trouble for trying to help out.

    You could mask off the tires and spray paint them.

    I have done this in the past, and it simply doesn't hold up. I wouldn't recommend painting the wheels, as it will look terrible in no time.

    thanks
    Allready had it setup just added a body n wing . should of got crowd pleaser body as this rc8 isnt long enough , i just velcro the sides of chassis to the body .was in rush to run my buddies on their 1/8 buggys .took it out yesterday on the track performed much better then truck .I think 6s is a little too much for the track but I dont push anything less on my 2200 lol .. Might swap and throw VXL on 2S or 3S because everytime I hit a jump the rear would want to push out to one side .
