I have a full-tilt, scratchbuilt 1/8th-scale Slash I call Slash8, and it's got hundreds of hours of research and fabrication into it. But after seeing the thread by snicklefritz and bronco bobby with their stretched stock Slashes, I thought... that looks like fun. So I dug into the parts bin (and sacrificed my conventional Pede build) to create something new.
First, I combined the stock rear end with an STRC kit...
...along with a couple of custom plates I built to attach the chassis to the shock tower. Throw in an MMP and a Tacon 4074 2000kv, mount the SC8 shell and some massive balloon tires from an AE MGT... and voila.
Ultra Slashipede. It's fun as all get out.
