    Do these bodies fit the 1:16 Rally?

    I'm pretty sure the Porsche and Peugeot do, but not the Lancia. Does the Lancia fit? And if it doesn't, are there any Lancia Delta bodies that fit?

    I think the Lancia's wheelbase is too long.
    Slash 4x4 LCG, Rusty VXL(not runnin), and my bike.

    Lancia body is way too big...and the wheelbase on the Peugeot is a little short...but may still work.
    959 may be a perfect fit.

    Glad to see you're still around. I never converted to the MERV. The website never had driveshafts in stock for 2 weeks, so I never bought it.

    Yeah, I got a Robby Gordon Slash and have beaten the crap out of it. It's still stock, but it's a very fun truck to drive around. I've had it for two years, lol.

    I have a 1/16 Slash and a 1/10 Slash Ultimate.
    The big one is definitely more fun.(But the Rustler is probably more fun than either of those)

    No... The ultimate is a 4x4 with a low cg chassis.soft compound tires...and a bunch of suspension upgrades.

    Would it be worth the money to upgrade my Slash with a Velineon powerhouse?

    Also, should I do the Lower CG chassis? I read it was a very good upgrade on the 4x4, but will it be good on the 2WD? I'm looking to upgrade this Slash a bunch. I want to replace the system with a Brushless motor, and you said the Castle Sidewinder was a good system. I saw it on their website, and all I need is that system, and the motor is compatible with the car?

    system comes with the motor and esc. I'd get a programming card too.

    As for the low cg chassis...the new one for the 2wd looks really cool.

    I like mine on my Ultimate.
