ST Racing Concepts GT-8/Rally Cross Conversion Kit For The Traxxas Slash 4×4

Jun 22, 2011 No Comments by

Tired of bashing your Slash 4×4 as a short course truck and want to try something new? How about turning it into a land missile? Or go rally style and go fast and low across asphalt and dirt? Our Slash 4×4 GT-8/Rally Cross conversion kit gives a new and exciting way to enjoy your Slash 4×4. In GT-8 configuration, the light weight of the Slash 4×4 with high-grip on-road tires will launch this now on-road ready car with incredible acceleration and hit high top speed even with just a 2S battery. Throw in a 3S….then you better make sure you find yourself a big enough parking lot for your new land missile.

This conversion includes:

  • CNC Machined Aluminum HD Front lower bumper
  • Thick 3mm Graphite Upper Bumper hold down plate
  • CNC machined Aluminum bumper posts (3 pcs)
  • CNC Machined Aluminum Front lower hinge-pin block
  • CNC Machined Aluminum Front Bumper/Gearbox brace
  • CNC Machined Aluminum Rear Lower hinge-pin block
  • CNC Machined Aluminum 17mm Hex Adapters (4 pcs)
  • CNC Machined Aluminum 17mm Hex adapter hold-down nut (4 pcs)
  • CNC Machined Aluminum 17mm Wheel Nut (4 pcs)
  • All screws and hardware necessary to install.

Note: Will require 1/8th GT Tires and Body and foam front bumper to complete

The conversion kit is easy to install and it keeps the general layout of the slash and retain some ground clearance for those that wants to go rally with the conversion. The front bumper keeps the slight front kick-up so in rally configuration it does not dig into the dirt from small jump landings. Compare to the 1/8th scale buggy converted GT-8 out there, our Slash GT-8 have a huge power-to-weight ratio advantage. On average a GT-8 with 4S weigh in at 8lbs 2 oz, while the Slash GT-8 comes in at a mere 5lbs 2 ozs with a 2S, and with a 3S, it is only at 5lbs 6 ozs.

Have fun and enjoy your Slash 4×4 in a whole new way with this conversion kit, and you just might be surprised at how well it works on the track as well. Available in Blue, Gun Metal, Silver and Red anodizing.

This light weight graphite front body mount will help Slash 4×4 GT-8 owners to mount bodies that have a lower profile front nose. This plate drops the front body mounting height by 6mm. Picture shows an even lower mounting method using Traxxas Rustler/Stampede battery hold down posts (secured with M3 locknut underneath) dropping the front mounting point by more than 10mm
