Although not considered a traditional monster truck, they still have monster coolness.

my clod o' slash

Post by clodbuster89 » Thu Jul 31, 2014 2:27 am

Well I've been working on turning this 2wd traxxas slash into a....... CLOD 'O SLASH muwahahaha. Anyway I have done a lot of modifications to this truck to get it to hold up to the weight of the clod tires and brushless power. Everything that can be is upgraded to rpm parts including rpm rustler rear arms on all four corners to add width for steering and body clearance. I also have upgraded the driveshafts with traxxas steel ones.

Very cool. How does the stock servo handle those tires?

It's actually not the stock servo it's a hightec servo but it does pretty good. It's the best waterproof servo I could find at the time.

That looks pretty cool, the RPM bumper works well with that too.
