    I like the old VW Beetle bodies. Makes sense to me on a 2WD Slash... motor is in the back. And the paint schemes you can do. Two tone with the fenders. 70's style with alot of metal flake in the paint. The new Dakar body is cool too; Hummer body with enclosed rear.

    Any body for a slash 2X4 or 4X4 will fit. Many bodies for 1/8 scale Onroad GT cars will also fit (Protoform, Ofna and Kyosho). There really arent that many options at the moment. But im sure more will come.

    I've searched around, but have not seen any pics of a Rally with the Proline bug body. SO, I decided to get one.




    I had to use the front body mounts from the Slash, and I decided to go with the Slash front bumper. The bumper makes it go over obstacles much better. The Rally rear bumper helps to add to the realism of the Baja look.

    Do you have to cut out the engine part of the body if you use the stock rally bumper?
