Pro-Line Slash Performance steering & adjustable battery strap

This is Pro-Line’s Performance Steering Kit for the 2WD Slash. The stock servo-saver is not ideal for racing or bashing conditions because it allows the front wheels to drift from side-to-side too much losing precision. Pro-Line’s steering kit gives control back because you can adjust the exact amount of tension on the servo-saver. The steering kit also eliminates the stock white plastic steering assembly and replaces it with durable black nylon for that race look that you desire. Ball bearings are also a requirement when you desire smooth and precise steering response and these are included along with the necessary hardware to bolt the steering and skid plate to the chassis, which makes the front end stiffer and stronger. Also for the 2WD Slash and Slash 4X4 is a new Adjustable Battery Strap which is a direct replacement for the stock version. Its adjustable and can be tightened down to ensure your battery stays secure and features an aluminum pivot block, which allows the battery strap to rotate completely out of the way so you can easily remove your battery. There is also a quick release for the front of the battery strap so you can change batteries faster than ever.

Smokem Hot Bodies TCX-FX chassis

Smokem Hot Bodies TCX-FX chassis

The Hot Bodies TCX gets the Smokem treatment with the TCX-FX chassis. Firstly they have reduced the width of the chassis by almost 10mm and with an overall width of only 94mm, scrubbing during hard cornering is minimized. The 2.2mm thick chassis has been designed to provide additional flex to deliver more grip and a wider tuning window so you can dial-in your car in over a wide range of temperature and track conditions. Other improvements include 2 additional LiPo support holes, which allow you to install locating nuts to bring the LiPo battery 5mm closer to the centerline of the car. We have also added front and rear balancing holes so you can balance your TCX with balance pins. All this translates to a faster car over a wider range of conditions.
