    Duck's Pede/Slash conversion

    Hey guys and gals

    I''ve had the pede for almost a year now, and I can't get enough.

    I've been doing a lot to it recently and just thought I'd share.

    I was going to do a truggy conversion, but decided on doing a slash conversion. Much more things to come but here's a list of all I have now.

    Let me know if you think I'm missing anything -- More pictures will be added after I get my body painted.

    Body parts:
    Slash Chassis - dyed black
    Outerwears Shroud
    Traxxas Big Bore Shocks (55 wt. oil) with VG Racing Springs and aluminum shock caps
    Traxxas Aluminum Wheelie Wheels
    RPM Front/Rear A-arms
    RPM Front/Rear Adjustable Body mounts
    RPM Shock Guards
    Teckno Front/Rear Drive shafts with aluminum Hexes
    Teckno Big Bone Center Shaft
    Traxxas Light Bar
    Sway bars
    Revo Slipper with alminum bearing adapter and aluminum pads
    Center Diff
    Trenchers on Desperados
    Street Fighters on Desperados
    Sand Paws on Traxxas All Stars

    Electronics/Power:
    Castle 2400 and MMP ESC
    Integy Cooling fan and heat sink
    Kingzhead Motormount
    Traxxas Aluminum motor mount
    ESC Mount Plate (made for Novak ESC's)
    9,11,15,17 and 21 tooth pinions
    Traxxas Peak Charger
    Traxxas 6400mah 11.1 v Lipo
    Traxxas 5800mah 7.4 v Lipo
    Gen ACE 5000mah 14.8 v Lipo
    Gen ACE 5000mah 11.1 v Lipo

    Just assembled and CLEANED EVERYTHING onto the slash chassis last night.

    Here's my dilemma -- I don't what body to get.

    I want to try to keep it a monster truck "looking" RC and not venture down to short course style

    What are some good truck bodies out there??

    the paint job is great but i agree with the body style not fitting the truck ,any revo 3.3 and emaxx 3905 bodies will fit but not with the stock stampede bumper
