Well I fitted the newer style bellcrank from the slash 4x4 to my 2wd... How's the instructions even include fitting to a rustler, slash 2wd and, stampede.....

So far so good...

Some people on other forums are claiming that it causes understeer.... Total BS...

Comparing the 2 bellcranks im 99% sure they have the same arm length, and anchorman geometry. Personally I think they are nuts.

If anyone disagrees I would be more than happy to measure it and show side by side comparisons.

Like I said I never had any problem with it on my old slash. I like it waaaaaaaay better than the stock 2wd bellcrank setup and for 15 buck (LHS price) its a cheaper upgrade than the Proline one.

lol my god, How on earth did u spend a "g" on each slash???? were they even brushless with lipos?

whats total junk? the bellcrank???? could it of been user error???? I only say that because some people were having problems because they removed both of the stock shims (1985). Now traxxas has a instruction sheet to avoid confusion

Hello,
After I ran under Ford Fiesta which of course ran over my car ;-) (damaged just nipple for one rear wheel), later on after some bashing with my 4y old kid, front suspension arm broke (catalog part #3655X).
Now my question is it reasonable to replace it with some mod part or just go for catalog one?
I'm from Poland, so when recommending something please check if it's possible to deliver.
Thanks a lot!


P.S.
Kid really sick, so sitting on sick leave and finally got time to look at this

Hey m8

I'd recommend checking out 2 manufactures. RPM and proline.
RPM make suspension parts designed to be strong with a life time warrenty
Proline make suspension parts designed to be stronger with more tuning options

this is my traxxas slash 4x4 .it is a great bashing truck. Since they don't make a spare tire rack for the slash I
used the stock bumper and after some tweaking I think it turned out good
