Hey guys, I"ve been following this forum for a while now, gathering a wealth of information. So for my first post, i thought i would introduce my Slash.
The look I was after:
The look i ended up with:
RPM Frt and Rear bumpers and light canisters. (stock lower skid plate makes a good spare tire carrier)
TRX castor blocks, axle carriers and bellcranks. RPM lower arms, skid plates and shock towers. STRC hinge pins. Stock Ultra shocks with aluminum caps and TiNi shafts. (40W Frt and 50W Rear, still fine tuning) And finally a JConcepts overtray with 2 cooling fans to keep everything clean.
I'm still running the stock Titan motor for now, i wanted to build the truck up for durability.
Tell me what you think or if you have any suggestions.

We're not worthy. Now that is how you do it!
I too still have the stock Titan but that is where our similarities end. My truck on the other hand has a cracked front rpm bumper, a torn rear shock tower (fixed with a drill hole and nut and bolt) and a recently seized up Titan motor....not too mention the body is tore up and the chassis is caked in a mixture of mud and wd40...ahhh it's wonderful.
Great job on your rig its really sweet.

Awesome job! I actually copied your picture and have it as my wallpaper on laptop. Lol
2wd slash, PL LCG, CC 3800, Powerstrokes, S6040
Very nice truck,I also cut a spot for my vxl-3 fan to stick out,but I built A small tent like top for it an used a very fine screen around it to keep out dirt,many say outer wear a,k,a pantyhose work well.
Don't for get,your esc fan is actually pushing hot air in.I really like your front fan,I have one off a heat sink,I think ill buy another,and mount one over the battery also.
I have three trucks,two still have stock chassis. This one doesn't need an over tray.
This was before I made the fan hole for the esc,and,if you don't mind me using your idea?two front mounted in the front,and one over the battery.
This one will soon have lcg chassis also,first I want to see how my hot racing steel sealed diff works.
Again sweet truck,hope it gives you hours and hours of fun.
PS. sand calls for a lot of maintenance,but from the look of your build,I think you'll have that covered.
Built Ford Tuff With Chevy Stuff.
Actually,I have 3 cooling fans in the overtray. I have one inside pointed at the ESC that I Velcro'd in place so I could remove it whenever I want.
P.S. Thanks for the comments. As far as using any of my ideas.... This is what it's all about, getting great ideas from great people. Havin fun.

Sweet looking truck. Great, great job on that build!
Nice looking ride fella. Nice scale look that I like and like what you did with the overtray and fans.
Excellent idea,Beautiful build.
I like the way you did your esc fan far better than mine.
Clean and professionally done.
May I ask,are you having any issues powering all three fans with the one rx in put?
Or are you going right from the vxl-3? assuming that's what your running.

What rims are you using on the rear?
Slash 4x4 LCG+(rolling)HCG, Slash 2wd(raptor)
So, I caved in and went to my LHS and picked up a set of PL Powerstrokes. Put 50W in the frt. and 40W in the rear. Hopefully the weather will dry out so I can see how she handles and tweak anything that needs tweaking.
Billy how do your trucks stay so clean?

Awesome, great looking truck! WoW!
Good thinking on the over tray with the fans. Otherwise it'll be an oven!
do you have any pics with the trencher tires mounted
With great brushless comes great responsibility.
this is awesome
i love these Raptor`s
but for me, a slash is not a scale- truck to build...... it`s bashing time here
if this was on facebook, you will get many, many likes
greetings from holland
I am currently working on the same thing. I have an everything-but-stock Traxxas Raptor with an Integy roll-cage that I am using for the build. The only stock parts left on it, for now, are the gears and main chassis plate! lol
I have a question. What did you use for the "Built Ford Tough" emblems? Are they decals or did you print them and adhere them yourself?
Dude! I'm a Raptor hater in real life but I love your truck! Nicely done.
El que se rie, de sus maldades se acuersa.
Cobra- what a great lookin' truck! Looks just like the inspiration rig! Bet ya make engine noises while you're driving....
Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaa whaaaaaaaaa wing wing whaaaaaaaaaa
So sick and scale looking. Sadly I I only bash and don't have time/money/effort/skill for stuff like this
Awesome job, one of the cleanest Raptors on this site
I have Raptor envy, KUDOS from a NAWLINS Boy
you modded the rear mudflap hangers?
And that is a Pede light kit on the frt bumper?
5806 Raptor, 67054 Stampede
Old post, but sick ride. I am going to build the same truck!
what kind of tire rack is that?
I think its a front skid plate upside down, with a bolt through it.
That is really nice. So nice now I want one. Looks like I will need a 2wd and 4wd to round out my collection.
