    New Slash 2WD LCG kit 5830

    My son has Rustler and now he wants to convert it to a Short Course truck like mine. I had planned on getting the STRC kit to do it but now have discovered the Traxxas LCG kit #5830. Would this be the best route to go? In addition to the 5830 kit, I think all I will need are slash rear arms, rear slash camber links, rear body mounts, bumpers, and new wheels/tires. All advice and opinions welcome. Thanks

    Well I looked at both and the STRC uses the rustler chassis and it drops the cg 2 inches. Traxxas only drops 1 inch. It depends on how much you want to spend, and what you son is going to do bash or race it?

    My son mainly uses his in the backyard. I'm looking to spend the least amount of money. I'm thinking the cheapest route is the Traxxas chassis.

    Never owning a 2wd slash how does this make a big difference? a new lcg kit I understand it will increase whats described in web page by traxxas. but will it retain the durability that slash's are known for? it may help on the track. one inch is still a big drop in my opinion

    It'll be just as strong if not stronger imo. When I used to run the hcg chassis the rails that connected skids to the chassis would break.

    The battery runs at the same height on both conversions. The lower chassis plates are both level with the bottom of the trans and front bulk on both. One will not be lower than the other.

    You're right rag6. I think I have decided on the Traxxas chassis. It will probably cost less and the ESC is lower, which might not make that much difference but it couldnt hurt. I have the Proline LCG chassis and it hardly ever traction rolls.

    As far as I know, that sounds like a good start. Good luck!
