Non-Standard Bodies

Well it’s been a while so I thought I’d add something. 🙂

There’s been a bit of discussion on the forums I frequent (URC mainly) about non short course bodies for the Slash so I thought I’d have a go at compiling a little post to look at the options available.

I don’t think I’ll get them all so suggestions are welcome.  One important point to note is that I’m NOT looking at  what I shall call “monster truck” style bodies e.g. a Stampede body on a Slash chassis.  I’m only going to look at things that will fit the standard chassis without the wheels sticking out like a sore thumb!  (I don’t know what it is but I just can’t abide that look, with very few exceptions).

Anyway on to business……..  Just click on the picture to be taken (wherever possible) to a relevant manufacturer website.

Volkswagen Full Fender Baja Bug Clear Body

14RS Clear Body – This is now a legacy item so you may have to shop around to find one.

JCONCEPTS Illuzion – BAJR – Traxxas Slash Desert body Part # – 0080

0084 – Illuzion – Slash 2wd – Ford Raptor SVT – SC body

Dune Buggy For SLASH – Clear Body – #1236

FIFTY FIVE SC BAJA .040″ Clear Body – #1238

So that’s all the “standard” non sc bodies I can find.  If you are aware of others please let me know.

If you want to do a bit of shopping around you may find other non-Slash body shells that will fit so here are a few images and measurements that may help.

Length: 22.36 inches (568mm)
Front Track: 11.65 inches (296mm)
Rear Track: 11.65 inches (296mm)
Height (overall)     ­     8.425 inches (214mm)
Wheelbase     ­     13.2 inches (335mm)

Of course if you wanna go really custom you could do something like this 🙂

This my SC8 Rollcage based custom “Clash 1” project which is a work in progress at the time of writing 🙂 Click on the picture to visit the build thread over at URC.
