I posted a thread few weeks about about on-roading my 2wd. Got some good feedback so I ordered some parts.
Been swamped with work but got it somewhat thrown togeather tonight.
Started with my fully hopped up (traxxas aluminum, RPM plastic) slash 2wd. Removed the bumpers and VXL, added CC's new SCT 3800kv system and STRC LCG conversion (w/rustler chassis). Also added the SRTC transmission heatsink Double as a motor mount and should seals off those motor vent holes in the transmission case (sand runs).
Truck weight in just under 5 lbs with full running gear. SMC 6k 2s Hardcase lipo, bajr body and stock 2wd BFG tires. Geared 24/83 it ran cool and noticable improvement over the VXL. Alot more bottom end torque from the 4 pole motor.
I have to get my new tires glued (30 series road rages) and re-tweak the suspension a bit. I do think the new LCG chassis can handle the added grip w/o traction roll. When I get some time I will get some pictures posted.
