I like checking Facebook and getting little surprises every now and again and today, nothing surprised me more than seeing (thanks to Wayne Nagata) Traxxas release their Slash 4×4 Low-CG (Center of Gravity) Conversion Kit. As detailed earlier, this is the same chassis that graces the Slash 4×4 Platinum.
If you already have a Slash 4×4 and have been yearning to get it lower and add some performance handling to an already rugged machine, this looks like a great, and inexpensive, way to make that happen. The main highlights of the upgraded chassis are:
- Complete kit with no additional parts required
- Lowers chassis one inch
- 50% (plus) lower battery position
- Lowered center of gravity enhances handling and increases cornering speed
If you own a Slash 4×4, will you be upgrading to this new chassis, or have you already upgraded to another LCG alternative?
