    HCG Rally?

    Looking to Change up my slash 4x4, its in desperate need of a new body. I was wondering g if the rally bumpers will mount on the old hcg chassis since I already have adjustable body mounts. Anyone know? Or better yet have pics?

    They do the same thing with the Slash. It should still be fun.

    Which body you thinking of going with? Stock Rally, Proline Rally, or the slicker more truck like Scalpel body?

    They turn 2wd Slashes into on roads or rally cars.

    I have the 2012 Ford Focus ST Clear Body mounted on my Rally.

    inspiration never hurts, i know there will probably be some florecent green, see through black (aka smoke), and who knows what else. maybe some metalic black, some silver, idk lol. need the body first usually to see the lines first hand to help figure out what i want to do lol.

    2X4 slash:





    If it can be done with a 2X4, it can be done with a 4X4.

    Because the 2X4 slash and original 4X4 slash have VERY similar body mounting locations and heights. So if you can make a PF8 body on a 2X4 the way I did… you can do it on a 4X4 with some ingenuity. Lol

    Oh, I totally misread the post, I read it too quickly. Thought it said it can be done with a 2x4 but can't be done with a 4x4...

    ok a little update. I decided to try something ive been wanting to do vs. rally conversion. so I have a body on the way but it will not be a hcg rally like I was kind of planning. atleast not yet. maybe in the future though.
