Default Slash Oval Racer

I have a 2wd Slash that has been sitting on a shelf for the last several months. Recently I bought a Losi Mini Late Model and started oval racing. Its a blast so I started googling to see if anyone had converted a Slash to run dirt late models and I came across this http://www.rctech.net/forum/oval-lar...ash-model.html

I decided to see what I could build. I looked for 1/8 late model bodies and found out that they were $50 and up so mine will have a Slash body. I started with a piece of 22 gauge sheet metal and cut a lower chassis and upper deck. I threw the electronics on just to see if it would work and ended up with this


It drove ok but I need to work on the steering a little and brace everything up.

The only time this Slash gets driven is when I go to my parents house and race oval around buckets in the front yard with my little brother so I am going to set this up as a back yard/dirt oval racer and hopefully it will help me work on throttle control for when I race the Losi Late Model.

That's a pretty cool idea. I have a brushless Slash just sitting in peices too. All I need is a chassis. It's just too bad there isn't an oval anywhere around here. Cool build though

I got the steering figured out. I had to cut a piece and bolt it to the top deck to keep the steering from pulling back towards the servo. With that figured out I took everything apart and painted the sheet metal to keep it from rusting. I put it back together and slapped on some decals. I like it!




I switched out the front body posts with some Axial body posts that I had laying around and lowered the stock rear body posts to get the body lower. I also put some fuel tubing on the shock shafts inside the shock to limit the travel and pull the chassis down lower to the ground.
