Default Slash 4wd into a Crawler.

Found something to do with my slash 4wd.

Gonna cut the shell so I can run bigger 2.2" tires and bolt in a 55T Lathe Motor.

Yep I'll be sure to post photos of my creation when it's completed.
Neat idea if you guys wanna try it.

You should check out Jang's Project Chimera...basically he did the same thing but instead of fully locking the diffs with JB weld he used really thick diff fluid to simulate a limited slip but he kept the stock VXL system for some decent trail speed.

Try something like OFNA Diff Lock in the front diff and as heavy as you can go in the rear, maybe diff lock there too. Did that in my E-Revo and it crawled half decent and still handles pretty good when run on pavement too.

Here it is on some smooth rocks in a grocery store parking lot parking island

and here it is set up for pavement running
