Default Hardcore Slash G10 Upgrade With Aluminum Parts

I posted about a 2 years ago about a upgrade for the Traxxas Slash by CKRC and was really hoping it would be a reality. Well I got my wish. Just came across this and was curious if anyone out there has one and what they think of it. I'm thinking of buying a Slash 2WD Brushless and the upgrade. Then I will buy parts to make the Slash whole again and try to race it when I have time. Again let me know what you think and post pictures too.
Thanks, Johnny

Well, For me it's to have something that is unique. And to have something that MaddMatt doesn't have. Who knows maybe this summer it will be a class of it's own at local clubs. Me, I can't wait to get my hands on it.

I almost bought a Slash just for this kit, but decided against it. $250 for a Slash, Then $350 for this. $600 just for a Slash with an axle is quite a bit.

I'm very interested to see if it's durability will hold up to its price tag of $350. And what the availability of spare parts like?

Dude, that's not an upgrade, that's a whole new design!  Looks very sophisticated.  Suspension geometries look very different, then there's that's big pumpkin out back...  Looks interesting.
