Traxxas releases Slash 4x4 Low-CG Conversion Kit

By: Tim Gluth

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 4x4 Low-CG (Center of Gravity) Conversion Kit. As detailed earlier, this is the same chassis that graces the Slash 4x4 Platinum.

If you already have a Slash 4x4 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 4x4, will you be upgrading to this new chassis, or have you already upgraded to another LCG alternative?
