    Turning a TRCE Slash 4x4 into a Pede 4x4

    Whats up guys, Could use someones list who already has this info...

    As some of you may know, I have several heavily modded Pede 2wds. But I need me a 4x4 Question is... Im still debating on which direction to go, but think it may be Pede 4x4 Truggy...

    For those of you whom have done a converstion like this, what parts do I need? Remember, this is from a Slash 4x4 TRCE chassis... To a Pede 4x4... Arms and all that I'l fiqure out. Talkin about main chassis and bumpers.

    Thanks in advance!

    Here is what im starting with.. I picked this up used for 300 bucks.. 3 sets of tires, Futaba 3pk (sellling) LRP ESC, and Reedy 3500 4pole motor. Plus STRC, and RPM goodies....Power strokes, 3 sets of SC tires. Oh and a venom charger, some random tools, Savox 1257tg Servo.




    The whole lot


    I am all about Monster trucks, or would love a truggy... So Short course isnt really my thang, except for leaving this alone would be alot easier, but who wants to do that!!!

    Neglected Truck...



    And it begins yet again!!!!

    Alright to make it into a monster truck p4de you will need:
    -Stampede 4x4 plastic chassis
    -Stampede 4x4 front and rear bulkheads
    -Stampede 4x4 battery hold down kit
    -Stampede 4x4 center drive shaft
    -Body mounts (You will probably want a way to lower them by trimming the mounts or using the metal battery posts)
    -Motor mount (Kingsheadz makes a nice aluminum one)
    -Bumpers
    -Wheels and tires
    -Shell
    -Stampede 4x4 receiver box if you want to use it
    -Wing and wing mount if you're going for a truggy

    I think that should be all to convert it. I've seen some of your p2de builds and they look awesome. Good luck with your p4de and I hope to see it up soon!

    Nice LooT!!! Glad to cya in this neck of the woods. I ran my P4de as a Truggy for a little while. Earlier last year I turned it back to a P4de with trenchers. Guess I did that because I have a Sl4sh and Slash. LOL And also a Rally 4WD. haha
