Shoot BrandO a PM and I am sure he will hook you up. This chassis is an awesome setup and really makes this car handle the oval very well. I was running mine some today with a Novak 8.5 which typically would be way too much for a Slash but with the BrandO Built setup I was wishing for more power. It handles that good.

Very interested in one of these way cool looking chassis. I can't find a website, or a place to get one? Ron from the left coast.

More details and information can be found here.

This is still a new product. And racing class for that matter. But I have a feeling it is going to be popular. With the proper setup they handle great. And with a brushless system they are fast. And most important, they are a blast to drive. The few of us who have them built are really enjoying racing door to door. Compaired to many other dirt oval classes they are inexpensive to build.

I now have right side nerf bars and front bumpers. Like I said door to door and bumper to bumper.

I do not offer shock towers at the moment. The basic chassis kits are $70. Thats comes with chassis plate, servo mount/front brace, steering pivots, and rear brace. For $80 you get the chassis kit plus front bumper and R.S. nerf bar. Those prices include shipping in the USA. More will be ready at the end of next week.

PM me for more details, thanks.

Just curious what shocks are you using. Those are not the stock or optional shocks for a slash.Are you making a shock collar that will work on the stock shocks or optional shocks( like the old adjustable type on Associated or Losi shocks).

I don't think we are allowed to run these nice alum. parts. We have to run stock or RPM replacements. That's why I asked about the shocks. We also run them on a paved asphalt track with a jump. We are allowed to lower them by either the cheap method tie straps or in side the shock with fuel tubing or 1/8"spacers. Just wanted to find out if anyone had 4 of those old associated shock collars that they don't make anymore( with the 4/40 screw and slide them on the shock)?
Also Roar just came out with some provisional Rules for the class.

Yes, the shocks are Traxxas GTR Revo shocks. Red springs are 1.5 rate and the whites are Jato rears 1.0 rate.

Should have some more kits done by the end of next week.

I have had many questions about shock towers. I don't have any for sale at the moment. I am working on some and hope to have some for sale in a month or two. Thanks.
