    Question Slash Conversion to Revo

    Hey guys! So I need some help.

    My step dad bought himself, my little brother, and my nephew all 1/16th
    cars for christmas after I bought mine.

    I bought a brushless revo he got my brother a brushed revo and he got
    a brushless slash and my nephew got a brushed slash.

    He likes the revo platform better and would like to convert his truck.
    His birthday is this weekend so I would like to do it for him.

    I was hoping someone could post all the parts I will need.

    Hope this isn't too much to ask!

    I know I will need
    1. Front A-Arms
    2. Rear A-Arms
    3. Front Shafts (Left and Right)
    4. Rear Shafts (Left and Right)
    5. Front Rockers
    6. Rear Rockers
    7. Springs
    8. Body
    9. Wheels & Tires

    Am I missing anything?

    Has anyone done this? Any idea what it will cost me?

    Thanks !!!

    Wow great thread! Didn't realize it would cost so much! I will go over it with him and see what he wants to do.

    It's a great opportunity to upgrade a lot of parts I suppose!

    I recently upgrade my merv to a rally with all the necessary parts.
    It cost me around $180, includes aluminum knuckles(axel carriers), Traxxas aluminum push/tie rods, Traxxas CVD, and stock A arms.

    I chose this route because I could easily swap back n forth by taking the pins out of the bulkhead and 1 screw on each rod.
    Bumpers n body post is another to thing to swap back also.

    What I underlined and bolded above is the same from the Slash to the Revo, so no need to buy those.

    You will also need push rods and toe links... and possibly to remove the spacer in the shocks?? not sure on that one.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    pretty sure the shocks are the same...no spacers.
    However....spring rates might be different.
