'Evening, folks. And happy new year.
I'm looking for part numbers on the following components.
1) Orange Dakar "Hummer" body.
2) Black/Orange front/rear wheels, with or without tires (preferably without)
3) Front/Rear body posts for above body
I've been waiting this Dakar H3-style body for the Slash since I first picked up my 1st generation Slash years and years ago. I've gone on to upgrade my Slash and it's easily my favorite rig, and I want this body/set, but I'm not forking out $300 for a new rig just for a body/posts/wheels..
So, I'd like to just get the body as a replacement part (hopefully with stickers not applied/on a sheet?), along with the matching wheels and body posts.
Are these available as replacement parts yet? LHS looked at me like I was crazy..
TAKING PRE-ORDERS ONLY! Will ship after the New Year around January 2nd, 2013.
The NEW Traxxas Robby Gordon Edition Dakar Slash
Officially-Licensed Desert-Racing Style, Slash Performance and Fun!
Ready-To-RaceŽ with TQ 2.4GHz Radio System, Power Cell 7-cell NiMH Battery, and free charger!
Robby Gordon is well known for versatile driving skills that have earned him success in everything from NASCAR to short-course off-road racing. Robby got his start as a desert racer in 1986, and he remains a force in this unique brand of high-speed, high-endurance competition. Unmistakable in his tough black and vivid orange race trucks, Robby is a fan favorite and a top contender when the green flag drops on the famous Dakar Rally. And now you can drive Robby’s ride yourself with the Traxxas Robby Gordon Edition Dakar Slash!
The award-winning Traxxas Slash puts you in the driver's seat for intense, high-flying off-road action. Robby's full-size Dakar truck embodies the spirit of Traxxas R/C with its 6.0 liter LS2 V8 racing engine, sand-shredding horsepower, 20-inch suspension travel, and desert-conquering durability. The Dakar Slash brings all the action home so you can experience high-speed head-to-head competition no matter where the terrain takes you--even water, mud, and snow thanks to Traxxas' exclusive waterproof electronics!
Looks like Tower has it in both colors. By the time you piece together the parts, you're not sending much more for the whole package.
That's $289.00 vs
$30.00 for a body
$20.00 for wheels
$10.00 for body posts
I'd rather just buy the parts and put them on a vehicle I've already got then buy a whole rig that won't get used at all..
I have three slash trucks,and with out trying to be funny,I rarely leave my lhs spending under $75,and I'm there four or more times a week.
But in my two tool-parts box's.I can completely build one and 3/4 slash's,But in the summer,racing for points,you cant be sitting there with a broke truck if you want that check and four foot trophy.
Built Ford Tuff With Chevy Stuff.
Even beyond the spares, so much of buying a whole nother slash would be wasted.
I don't want the crap tires
I don't want the crap radio (I have a DX4S)
I don't want the crap motor or ESC (I have like 5 XL-5s...)
I don't want the crap battery
If it was $199 like the Slash originally was, then maybe. But at $100.00 more then the Slash's original introduction price, I just can't see paying for another full rig when all I need are the body, wheels and body posts.
I've also got a mountain of spares. ****, even before I got my Slash a few years back, I had a mountain of 'Pede/Rustler parts waiting for it. Lol.
I just want one of the bodies in clear so I can paint one! Usually it takes awhile before the parts for a new truck are available separately. I'm sure Traxxas will make them available to buy, given how many Slashes are out there.
