boo yeah man . is it a matter of swaping tires and body mounts adding a bumper ???
You will have to changue shock oil, diff oil, shock springs, also the shocks has a travel limiter, so it would be better get the complete set of rally shocks. I guess the motor pinion too. Do not have any of those vehicles so canīt give you the exact info but pretty much you have to look at those parts.
From what I can tell its definitely the front bumper and body mount, the shocks have a tiny rubber limiter in them so you could just do that yourself with fuel tubing (as youve said) the diff fluid weight may be different but that shouldent stop you from converting (especially if its heavier in the slash, I think the rally could use some heavier diff fluid) and the stock slash springs could just be compressed tighter on the limited shocks (it wouldnt be perfect but it would at least get you running. Add a set of 1/10 touring car wheels and tires and your done.
From what i can see the most expensive part of the conversion woudl be getting the body... they are selling for over $40 shipped on e-bay right now (from the chop shops)
Otherwise, the rest of the vehicle is entirely the same.
(stay away from "xtrememe enterprises," they're bad news) so you should be able to find what you need to get yours ready.
I ran mine on carpet, with foams, last week and it was great. Lots of fun.

i have just sat the rally body on the slash. and you could get it running with just a body mount mod.
