I would just get new tires. Â*That way you still have a sc truck as well as a monster truck.
same would be true of the pede with slash chassis...it could run SC tires.
But ive had a slash 4x4 and dont really want a 4wd sc. I have a sc10 for sc fun.
What I want it a single battery...brushless monster truck that can be bashed hard. And other than the obvious plastic driveshafts, the slash/pede platform is pretty tough.
I just dont want the pede in stock form as the short wheelbase limits handling and leaves 2 tires up in the air half the tim
e....thus canceling out the benifit of 4wd.
as far as the bumpers...I could care less whether it is the slash or pede setup. I just want slash wheelbase...with pede type tires.
I will admit that going the slash route would allow me to chose the tires. The pede tires are OK, but I would prefer large tires that are a bit softer and more compliant.
I guess going with the slash would allow me to sell tires/body.....which could almost pay for the tires I would want and a new MT style body. Where as with the pede the stock parts would pay for the new parts....but a body would come out of pocket.
But again, the pede is a bit cheaper. And I do like the linear springs and those shock protectors.
Ill keep dwelling on it. Once my thunder tiger phoenix XB sells I will have to make up my mind and pull the trigger on one or the other!
Syco...if you can find that slash chassis and verify the possible width issue. I would hate to buy a pede and get the slash chassis...only to find that the pede's front tires hit the chassis. I did not realize that the pede chassis is narrower. I dont know if traxxas did this just for the body to fit...or to keep the tires from hitting the chassis as well.
