Project: BackSlash 4×4

I’ve finally got most of the kinks worked out of my Slash 4×4 that i built from spare parts and i am super happy with how it came out. I am currently using a Pro Line Bulldog body for the Associated RC8B, AKA 17mm adapters, an Integy machined motor mount, Traxxas aluminum bearing adapter, stock Telluride diffs, Traxxas aluminum shock caps, a Mystery 4pole 3950kv motor, an FVT 120a esc, a TowerPro MG996r servo with alloy horn, STRC carbon fiber electronics, Ofna LX-1 wing mount and an Integy high downforce wing. The Ofna wing mount bolts right to the diff case in the rear and has been very stout so far. The truck is super quick and handles really well. I am surprised how much lighter it is than a true 1/8 buggy. I will continue to upgrade the truck as things break but as it sits I am pretty happy with it. On to the pics!
