JConcepts Slash/Stampede 4×4 suspension conversion

Coming from JConcepts and made for the Traxxas Slash 4×4 and Stampede 4×4 is a suspension conversion kit. The upgrade includes carbon fibre front and rear shock towers, aluminium shock stand-offs, body mount adaptors and aluminium caster blocks. Using this combination of parts along with other optional parts allows to convert the stock trucks into high performance vehicles. The 4mm long-stroke front shock tower has been designed to use a longer Traxxas shock for better shock geometry in rugged conditions. The carbon material improves response of the suspension and provides a stable setting for the included aluminium body mount adaptor. The rear tower, also in 4mm material, utilises the stock geometry but with the addition of carbon fibre and precise machining, tightens up the feel of the rear suspension. The included aluminium shock stand-offs position the shocks at an advantageous angle and allows the shocks to work as designed.

All the changes to the geometry conclude with the new caster blocks. The camber link position has been revised and extra material trimmed to allow smaller diameter wheels needed for monster truck wheels and tyres. The machined aluminium blocks are durable and are finished in a high-gloss black anodising. The set includes heavy-duty 3mm hardware to secure the transformation. This set of parts, combined with the list of items below complete a conversion to the ultimate monster truck for racing, bashing and free-styling. All parts are also available separately for spares or repair.
