I think the raised one looks way better than the "drag" truck personally. Don't mind the troll lol.

agree, I think the raised one looks damn nice
kinda wish I bought a slash 4x4, but alas I blew too much this year on RC's, and am out of storage room for them so no slash for me

really like the changes you've made look 100X cooler than it did before imo, its very rasied truck but very racy at the same time...
i want one but 6 cars and a heli makes for a lot to keep track of and deal with... and the parts bills are harsh....

well the drag truck is only made for down force+high speeds so i didnt put that much effort into making a prostock truck body for it, i agree it looks better raised on the mashers myself. i like the way it handles now.....much better than any of the SC wheels i have for it. it slides a little when high speed turning but HASNT ROLLED OVER YET.....its actually been my mission to roll it with these on. IT IS DIFFICULT none the less lol.the 1/8 electronics deffintly are a boost in performance and i recommend them for any 1/10 or 1/8 rc....no hiccups, no cogging and doesnt get much over ambient tempatures no matter the stress (motor gets a little warm) i think this should have been a Stampede 4x4 BL that traxxas should put out....thanks guys.

anyone one know of a way to widen its track 1/4" to a 1/2"? i wanna try summit wheels next

kinda looks a little like a stampede with a slash body, traxxas really should pull there head out of there ... and make the stampede 4x4

looks cool though

yea i feel the same way about the stampede 4x4....should have been done a long time ago.....but i like the slash 4x4, i think this has more clearance than the stampede does...i think the stampede is a rustler with a body lift lol but it would be nice to have a stampede 4x4 brushless....thanks for the comments guys

Last pic for some reason came out too small...there 50 25V 330uF capacitors. im going to install 4-6 on the esc and take the 35v 2400uF off, better charges and heat dissapation

Just put some time into it and make it YOUR'S. Build a 4x4 Stampede! I actually heard from my uncle that 4x4 Slash's are not even close to being as strong (as far as breaking) as the 2wd Slash. He owns a dirt track and runs them often.
