STRC Slash 4×4 GT-8/rally cross conversion kit


We showed you first pictures of STRC’s GT-8 rally cross conversion kit for the Traxxas Slash 4×4 before and now it is here. Designed to keep the general layout of the Slash and retaining a certain ground clearance the converted truck is able to run both in the parking lot and backyard, given the correct tyre choice. Due to the lightweight design the GT-8 offers a huge weight saving compared to a converted 1/8 scale buggy as the STRC converted vehicle weights at around 2320g to 2440g depending on the battery whereas a converted buggy easily breaks the 3600g mark. The kit contains a CNC-machined aluminium HD front bumper, bumper posts, front and rear lower hinge-pin block, bumper/gearbox brace, 17mm wheel adapters and nuts, as well as a 3mm graphite upper bumper hold down plate as well as all needed screws and hardware. Additionally needed are 1/8 scale GT/Rally Cross tyres and a suitable body shell. The conversion kit is available in blue, gun metal, silver and red anodising. Also available is a graphite low profile front body mount for bodies that have a lower profile front nose. The plate drops the front body mounting height by 6mm and using Traxxas Rustler/Stampede battery hold down posts by more than 10mm.
