Hey everyone. New to this site, not new to the hobby or Traxxas products.
Anyway. I just completed a Slayer conversion. It was real simple to do. Here are the pictures.
Started with my Nitro Slayer Pro
And stole the transmission and Mamba Monster out of my E-Maxx and put them on to a brand new E-Revo chassis.
I pulled the front and rears ends off the Nitro truck and put those on the chassis
Throw the motor, wheels, tires and body back on
And here is a small video too
I'm decided to keep the motor mounted like it was in the E-Maxx. This keep more weight over the front of the truck and no wheelies occur. I have not had the ESC fan kick on during operation and I'm running 6S. This is a really simple conversion and I could see Traxxas potentially releasing this, but I don't think they will. At high speed the truck can be a little unstable, but it does handle well, especially in nice soft dirt. Enjoy!
Looks good! And it looks like you made it all out of parts you already had as well!
Nice work Chief, didn't roll it once either
I'm surprised that Traxxas isn't selling these as RTR models really considering all the parts are directly compatible...
Keeping the Mods busy is my specialty...
Here is a little video I threw together quick showing off the E-Slayer getting some pretty nice air!
E-Slayer is a fun truck! Here's some pics and specs on mine right after I finished it, before I set up the suspension (mainly lowering it lol)
MMM/2200kv equipped, Futaba 3PKS Radio, JR 9100T Servo, E-Revo Center Diff with front/rear diff cup and brace, RCM Front/Rear Diff Cases with d8 diffs, KD Center Shafts, Cut Summit Outer Shafts, Buggy sized wheels/tires, Tekno RC Swaybars

Nice T-Bone! I like it. I have those same wheels and tires. Nice to see I'm not to first or only one to think of doing this
I love the wheels/tires on it. Although my tires are shot now. I've got two more sets of those wheels, with different tires to try out. I call it my sc8e killer.
Toss some Tekno swaybars and a center diff in it, and it will handle like a dream!
