STRC Slash 2WD LCG conversion kit

ST Racing Concepts have released their LCG (low centre of gravity) conversion kit for the Traxxas Slash 2WD Short Course truck. This simple, yet economical and easy to bolt on conversion utilizes the existing Traxxas Rustler chassis components and delivers a huge on track performance improvement over the stock configuration Slash. All components have been CNC machined from high-grade aluminium and all necessary hardware is included for installation. Track testing has shown that this kit allows for a 1-1.5 seconds per lap drop in lap times and allowed the Slash to be right in the mix with today’s stadium truck based short course trucks. Available in blue, gun metal, red and silver.

The kit contains the following:
– CNC Machined Aluminum Front Bumper Mount (2)
– CNC Machined Rear Battery hold down plate (1)
– CNC Machined Chassis extension upper plate (1)
– CNC Machined Chassis extension weight plate (1)
– CNC Machined Chamfered bottom skid plate (1)
– CNC Machined Chassis brace plate (1)
– All hardware (screws and lock nuts) for installation

Performance advantages:
– Drops battery by more than 2 inches vs. stock chassis
– Laydown servo position further lowering the CG
– Slightly shorter wheelbase (by 10mm) for more nimble response (stock Slash body still fit right on)
– More stability in high speed cornering
– Quicker left-right transition in slow corners
– More built in rear traction with chassis extension weight plate as low as possible right beneath the motor
– Utilizing Traxxas original components allow for true alignment of main chassis structure
