Cool Slash 2WD LCG Conversions

Hey, I hope this is OK. I wanted share my Rustler to Slash 2WD bulletproofed conversion using the STRC LCG Kit and a ton of other RPM, Pro-Line, jConcepts and STRC parts, but I couldn't find a thread that dealt with conversions of this nature.

So I hope this thread can be for people to discuss Slash LCG conversion kits, and people can share their build lists.

This first entry is intended to be the ultimate backyard basher. I even gave it a name - "Brash" - [B]ulletproofed [R]ustler LCG sl[ASH].

I kind of went overboard on the video, but i'd love to hear your comments!

Default Update 1: Front End Rebuild

Update. Rebuilt front end. Aluminum camber links and plastic bulkhead kept breaking. Rebuilt with STRC aluminum caster blocks and bulkhead, connected by RPM Camber links and A-arms - rigidity and flexibility in perfect harmony ;-)

Great conversion! I like how those monster tires look but is it underpowered now?

Thanks!!! No, it is not underpowered. I used an app called ratiocalc and kept the pinion/spur combo within traxxas' recommendations. No change was necessary. I'm running the 86t spur, and the normal pinion that comes in the truck on 2s and 3s.
