    Default Rustler To Slash

    i got a little board today. so i decided to look up what parts it take to turn a rustler into slash.
    here is a small list of the major components to do it.

    TRA5837 Lower Chassis Braces
    TRA5822 Main Chassis
    TRA1914X Upper Body Mount
    TRA5835 Front Bumper
    TRA5823 Side Braces
    TRA5827 Battery Strap
    TRA5836 Rear Bumper
    TRA2555 Rear A Arms
    U will also need Wheels and Body.
    A rear bumper mount if u don't got a wheelie bar

    I will post when i know what screws it takes.

    Also if there is anything that missed plz let me know

    These are the parts that i found that aren't same on both trucks.

    keep the rusty front and rear arms and all the susp. components. you will hate how skinny and easily it will flip with the slash arms. just my 2 cents

    by the time you convert it'd probably be better to just buy a slash anyways. that way you might spend a little more but you would have 2 trucks to play with

    probably 85 just parts. i would keep rusty tires. and can u get a measurment on the rear rusty arms? also buy rpm instead of stock. and u also need a bumper mount(get rpm)

    ya after looked up th price of just those parts, it would be cheaper to get a slash.

    But then again some people might like to do a conversion for it might be fun to some

    if u got a wheelie bar u won't need the mount for the rear bumper, same piece
