    Receiver box not the same in Rally and Slash!

    Hey Guys,

    I got a few receiver boxes from chop shops on eBay and I found out that, although they have the same part #7424, they are not the same on these trucks...



    The upper part is exactly the same, but the lower part is not... On the Slash Ultimate is 18mm tall and on the Rally is 13mm tall... Strange, right?

    The new ultimate comes with full telemetry pre-installed so I bet the taller box is for that purpose, housing those wires ...... better get on that Digger, theirs a bigger, better, rx box out there with your name on it. Would make it easier to get all your wiring done.

    Awesome find daniel. I went and double checked to be sure if there was anything noting a difference and there isnt anything shown to what I can see. I'm going to have to look into that. I might snag one off ebay and test it. That is a total plus if so. Can you link me to the guy you bougth the bigger box from or let me know if this is the same guy.

    Slash LCG Ultimate Rx box #7424

    Dread you know i'm going to be all over it. LOL I'm totally thinking about using this same box on my Slash 4x4 possibly.

    Do the screw holes on the rally/slash box match up with the old style receiver box from the original slash 4x4?

    I could use a bigger receiver box too.
    My Black & Blue Rally is faster than your color...

    The new rx box matches the holes to a lap counter... so I would think it can mount up front on the older chassis. (Same spot as a p4de rx box but using different holes), lap counter holes.
    could someone take a second to confirm this for us....new rx (either box, slash or rally) box screw holes lining up with old chassis front mounting holes (like a p4de's box mounts up) I see a few people mounting them there so it just seems like it should fit the older chassis too.
