    The WB is 206mm width is 185mm. So any body with a WB of 205mm-210mm will work. From what I've seen so far, nothing comes close in width. But some Tamiya mini bodies, and some HPI Cup Racer bodies. Hopfully Proline will come out with something.

    not on the super-cross style 10 Ft jump tracks in the US but on our European tracks that are more like short course tracks with rolling jumps

    And the best part of the Rally VXL is that you can use the Tamiya Rally block tyres and all the cool 1,9" drifter wheels

    SnoopMax, do you part number for this wheel/ and drift tires?

    do you have part number for the Datsun?

    OK, I have an extra merv sittin around, and want to do a conversion, I understand I need body mounts, new A-arms, a few tweaks to the shocks, different bumper, wheels/tires, and body. But does any one know the the differential gearing is the same? is the rally runnin a center diff? and what fluid is being run it the diffs? what fluid in the shocks? and I'm guessing that RPM's A-arms for the slash will work right?

    RPM does not make Slash/Rally VXL a-arms
    only E-Revo VXL A-Arms
    However
    If enough ppl ask for them , Then they might make the arms for the Slash and Rally

    7340 Shock Springs
    7372 Wheels/Tires
    ???? Body
    so can anyone confirm this is all you need, i have the m/slash and mini erevo and the merv is all i use as the i find the slash to unpredictable even on 2s. the conversion will save it from being a dust collector on the shelf.

    I have been doing alot if research on this conversion and that is indeed all you need. Also I think heavier shock and diff oils.

    The drivetrains are the same? For some reason I thought they were different because when I've been looking for cvds for my slash they seem to make separate ones for the revo and slash

    They are the same except for the length of the a-arms and drive shafts. The E-Revo and Summit both have the longer a-arms and driveshafts to make the trucks wide. The Slash and Rally both have shorter a-arms and driveshafts to make them narrower.
    I need R/Cers anonymous.

    I guess if the merv then a rally can become a merv? Is this possible?

    I think I said this once befor but I used merv arms with merv shocks and Ken Block or rally push rods and a set 1/10 onroad rally tires that raised it up just a hair higher than the stock rally wheels. this gave the truck the wide stance and only a little more suspention travel than the rally and altho offroad it sucked cause smaller tires and low ride hight it was pretty awesome in dirt like at the baseball field and this one parking lot that has this real fine gravel, I love it, I could go real fast across it and do these cool wide power slides and whips and no flipping!

    i disagree... being a die hard rally fan for years I understand there are different types of rally car setups. A Corsica Tarmac Rally car is entire different machine than say a rally mexico setup rig. The rally vxl is a tarmac setup and I'm ok with that.
