i was wondering if anyone did a write up on the MT slash builds. i tried searching but couldnt find any. i know alot of people start with a pede and lower it but i was wondering if you can take a slash 4x4 and just put bigger tires on it and have the same thing or if their is more to it. if someone has a link or knows how to do it i would appreciate it.
Maybe longer shocks?
In the 4x4 section there is a large thread about it. On my 2wd I used bigger tires and dropped the gear down to a 19t and either trim or change bodies. http://www.prolineracing.com/blog/su...ze-your-slash/

there are alot of slash mt builds, you just have to look research a little better instead of "mt slash". For the most part, the "have-to's" to build a slash mt are" larger tires, larger shocks (emaxx stock shocks widely recommended), and low gearing.
kawasaki summit, revo& slash; regular rusty, pede
Rag6 has a nice mt build
search on google and then you will find some
Slash 2wd, Slash 4x4, 30th digger, Rustler VXL
i didnt do a google search but i tried a couple different ways on here. i dont know why at the time of posting i didnt see the 4x4 slash but who knows. i was asking on here because i knwo alot of people have done the stampede to slash conversions. I wanted to see yalls ideas and pictures and what nots.
The easiest way would be to do a shock cap mod to the stock length shocks, lower the gear and put some stampede or better yet, some 2.2 rock crawler wheels and tires. They will be in the 5" tall range. Again lower gearing and expect to break parts.
Shocks in inner arm holes, new body to accommodate larger tires, and of course larger tires.
The cleanest way for new tires is some wide offset 1/8 buggy tires and some 18mm hex adapters.
My old slash I ran these 2.2 proline crawler badlands. They are a soft tire, but will hold up to 2s lipo fine.
Ran them on rpm revolver wide offset 2.2 rims. Direct bold on to stock hex.

Seems pretty easy to me
Put suspension highest it will go (then tune it)
Put big wheels on

I'm not a hatchet man! I'm a maggot!
No need to overthink it. Jack the suspension up as high as it goes, get the traxxas extended body mounts for the Monster Jam Stampede to raise your body, put on larger tires, gear down, and drive.
These are Proline Moabs on Axial 2.2 beadlocks and the stock Raptor body.
that is lookin good.
