Further Description/Back Story I started with a basic Slash (58076-4) and for more power I added a Hobbywing EZRun Max10 motor and ESC (HWA38010205), and also added a 50C 5000mAh reaction battery (DYNB5025H3). I opted for a set of Gmade XD piggyback shocks (GM21007 GM21207) which attaches to a set of RPM wide a-arms(80182 70662).
With the extra width, I added some RPM rod ends(80512) which attaches to STRC caster blocks (ST3632GM) and knuckles (ST3636GM) along with some hub carriers (ST3652GM). I installed a low CG chassis kit from Traxxas (5830) and at the front I added a Traxxas bumper (2735). I decided to get a Proline Megalodon Desert Buggy (3563-00) and also bought a set of De Racing Dirt Oval Wheels (DER-DS4-AB) and wrapped them in Proline Hyrax SCXL All Terrain tires (10164-00).
