Default New 1/10 Truggy....thoughts?

I did the Stampede Truggy conversion that was done in Northern Cal. I have run it stock and it shows promise. It is a way cheaper alternative to the other 1/10th Truggys out there and it seems to handle just as well.
Please let me know your thoughts.

In the pics below you will see the internals and the rear wing mount. It is a losi and it fits in the existing upper holes for the bulkhead. The wing is a 10th scale lexan wing, but it does not hold up well. I have an ofna 1/12 scale wing coming in:

The front body posts are battery posts for the slash/rustler/stampede. The rear body post is a standard long body post for touring cars. A bunch of manufacturers make one. There is a existing hole in the chassis that you can use. If you want to use the dust cover, you will have to take a body reamer to the cover so that the body post can go through.
BTW, this was not my idea, as most people know. it has been done in California, but I havent see anyone use it here, so..

Nice but did the arm width increase? Truggies has longer arms than monster.

Looks gnarly dude, I love it. First I've ever seen of it. I wish 1/10 truggy was bigger here, I'd definitely pick one up to convert.

Thumbs up

Looks really good! Thumbs up!

For folks who may doubt the potential performance of this thing and haven't seen it before, check out the first one in action:

Video: Norcal Hobbies: 1/10th scale Truggy A-Main Feb. 13 2011

A little more on the truck: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ck8xrObgP6Y and http://www.ultimatetraxxas.com/projects/shape-shifter/


These things are very close in dimensions (wheelbase and width) to the Hyper 10TTs.


Keep us posted, Happy Meal!

I was thinking of trying that out, what do you need to switch a slash over to the stampede chassis?

chassis, body posts, body, bumpers, wheels/tires
and it will be exactly the same as a stampede 4x4

I too have been debating over doing this conversion. I have seen this done on the Traxxas forum and seen the youtube videos. It looks sweet and much cheaper than the other electric truggies. The question is what class will they let you run with?
