Exclamation !FRONT SUSPENSION UPDATE!

Found two of the same shocks lying around and checked them out with my slash, and sure enough, they put the front pro trak arms at full extension. so now my front end has as much travel as i could get out of the front end without putting jato arms on. i posted pics below of the front suspension as it is now.

Picture quality is crap.

I'm more interested in how you plan to mount that rear diff and get power to it.

So far you have a 2wd Slash. I'm curious to see how it comes out with Wheely King axle in there. I have made a few live axle rigs and they don't handle all that great.

rear axle looks to narrow how are you gonna widen it to make track width equal? narrow offset front tires and wide rears? also interested on how your gonna get power to the rear axle

To start off my i have an older camera so take it easy on my pics. Second im going to use these from strc ( http://www.teamstrc.com/index.php?ro...product_id=181 ) to widen the rear end. This will put the rear right next to the wheel wells. I plan on using the stock 2wd transmission and finding a way to lock one side so one side spins. Im going to put a castle sct combo running 3cell in it. Also got some stuff today from my local lhs and from the mail.

Well, I wish you luck.

But, I don't like your chances either. Definitely will follow the thread though and see how it turns out!

Making it work is fairly easy. Lock the diff in the traxxas trans or run an axial trans and mount it on the chassis. Run the drive shaft from there. It's not like it's never been done before. It works and works fairly well but getting it to handle anywhere near as well as the independent suspension is going to be very difficult. Then again this might not be your goal, with that I say have fun and keep it slower then you want and take a bunch of video to make it look as real as possible.

You might want to check out Rccrawler.com and search for IFS rigs. A ton of information that you and a lot of other people who want to see this done can use. Granted most of them are 4x4 but the same principles apply.

Thumbs up start of the rear

So i decided to give myself the green light to cut for the rear instead of waiting for after my trip. So far i cut out for the drivetrain and mounted the transmission. I filled the diff with 2 part epoxy so it will be a locked differential so it will "drive" the truck. Also shaped out the rear for the truck.
