Thanks wyd my competitors felt the same way this past weekend.
Once everyone gets them out on the dirt, we need to share set-up sheets.
Hopefully the chassis arrives this week. I have to wait a little bit longer because I´m located in Germany. Everything is ready for conversion.

Have fun and let us know if you have any questions/issues.
sorry bout it beiong sideways lol
Seems like the old slash flipping when turning has been reduced greatly.
Thanks for posting the video.
inside havoc ballistic 4.5t ,havoc pro esc w/x-drive, savox 1258t ,airtronics rec, STRC chassis, traxxas cvds, everything else TRAXXAS.
yes greatly is an understatement my chassis sits 1 inch in the rear and 3/4 of an inch in the front in my testing i have rolled it once running 2's geared 13/54 for now just testing. i am so happy i waited cant wait to build the blue one lol
Does anyone have a STRC 4x4 in the Orlando, FL area?? PM me if you do..
Superman don't need no seatbelt-Ali
2x SSC SL4x4
Just a short question... I want to be ready when the chassis arrives. I´ve got the blue Dynamite 4 hole servo horn. Its a little bit longer than the stock servo horn. Do I have to cut the last hole to make it fit? The third hole has the same position like the hole from the stock one...

Took a little extra work but it was worth it.

Rally GT8 4x4 in progress.
Beholder_74 from my build experience there will be no way to mount a receiver box in that area.
DriveItLikeYaStoleIt sorry no video of mine on the track this past weekend. I can tell you it handles a lot better then the stock chassis did offroad. A section of track that I always had unpredictable handling even if I enter the section the same every time was the whoops section and this chassis handled the same every time I hit that section. The guys that drive losi's at our track are rethinking their switch from traxxas to losi after they saw this chassis run.
I would also like to mention that I had no setup time on this chassis before I raced so it was a carry over setup from my stock plastic chassis. I am using most of slayden's setup as my base setup.
skynex721 that looks like a ton of motor in that Slash.

So Can I'm not using the steering arm that came with the kit, because me ball ends wouldn't screw on to it. Am I going to screw anything up because of this?
Finally... ITS ARRIVED! ITS ARRIVED! Chassis with 2 Diff bells... And I dont had to pay 20% toll because the delivery service of DHL didnt asked for it! hehehehehehe!!! What a nice day!!!

SO how long is it taking you guys to get the build complete after unboxing?
Whatever I just said.. I'm probably wrong..
Here is a short video another customer did and posted a link from the site he is on. It is a time lapse video of his build. It was fun to watch and no Jack Links jerky in the video either.
Today I promise to get working on my Slash lcg setup. I been slacking and just got too busy at the shop the last two days but today I don't have to work and the shop won't be really busy that I would have to help out so its all about my STRC LCG Slash tonight. I will get some pics as well that I have slacked on to. Hope to get all my wiring done as well tonight so it looks nice and tidy.
Why do you need STRC when you have the Traxxas LCG one?
And there he goes with the carbon...
Its made of aluminum, the motor mount is also aluminum and looks a lot better. The cost of this chassis is a few dollars more then a full conversion to the traxxas lcg chassis, also the aftermarket has not produced an aluminum motor mount for the new chassis yet.
A little protection for the bottom.
What is it on the bottom
from where bridic?
- 15 inch x 10 yds - Pizzazz Orange?
I need to find the paper work to know the exact color as i already had this material.
If you are looking for some orange, PM me your address and I will send you a section.
heres mine all built up. took me 6 days, lol...in reality, it took me about 4hrs (keep in mind teardown only took about 20-30min) i was going to use a stainless screw kit and got about 1/4 way through and changed my mind when i started rounding off screw heads (the stainless kit i got is pretty soft) then i had some troubles finding out how to mount the front sway bar...also im using a different esc im not allowed to mention apparently its a 120a next to a 4800kv 4pole. i got a little creative with mounting but requred me to remove the top brace after having it installed...and i had a few other install/removal hiccups like mounting my 7cell nimh.
honestly, the biggest time consumer was finding the correct length screws, and loc-titing them.
ok, heres the pics...dont mind the cat/dog hair, ive only got to play with it inside the house so far.
heres a closeup of how i mounted my batteries, it seems to be holding well enough id leave it permanently but i planned on lipos anyways. note the rear "L" bracket is only held in with one screw and its been flipped/rotated to give just a hair more length in the battery tray.
and heres a center brace that i dont understand the purpose for other than to do this...simply wrap velcro through it and the nerf bar and viola!
and while we're on topic of chassis protectors, ive been dreading taking this thing to the track scratching it all up...well i found something awesome today. it comes with 2 sheets, its pretty thick as you can see in the close-ups...its about .25mm thick and it goes on just like a cell phone protector. i bought it cause it was clear, didnt know how thick it was until i went to put it on. im very happy with it, plus i have another once this ones all bashed up. its so nice you can barely tell its there in the pics. also realized another bonus to the protector, keeps all the screw heads nice and clean!
