    No prob, if I recall I think it was 80mm for the camber turnbuckles up front. I may swing by harbor freight and pick up a set, just not a tool I would use very often.

    I have found I use it a lot more than I thought. Use it for my shocks the most.

    I might have one laying around with my reloading equipment... I'll have to dig it out and check.

    True and not true at the same time, The slash isn't a "scale" car in the first place The step in the middle makes it less scale if anything. if you look under a 1:1 sc truck or trophy truck it's all smooth until about the rear half for control arms and the rear suspension and axle.

    When I refer to it being scale. See Jangs final thoughts on the slash 2wd on you tube. I use the term in the same sense he does.

    Do you have any pics of your slash 2wd with the LCG conversion? I picked up a pro-line lcg and have been tinkering with it throughout the day.
    Everything is swapped over except for motor, ESC, and receiver. Not too sure how to get the ESC in this thing, doesn't seem like it wants to fit no matter where I put it. The electronics in mine are all stock (velineon brushless motor, VXL-3S esc, and the traxxas s.4ghz tqi receiver.

    Thanks dude! :)

    The ESC is held on with Velcro. The receiver case is attached from the bottom vs. From the inside like you would on a slash.

    This is awesome, thank you! Since I have the stock ecu that came with the truck, I might need to take the dremel to it and cut off the mounting tabs. It won't fit with them on there. :-( definitely a tight squeeze for the electronics on this thing.

    Edit... That should have read ESC, gotta love spellcheck sometimes... lol

    Tried opening up the ESC, no dice on taking the case off. I'll try trimming the mounting tabs and see what happens from there. Worst case scenario I'll have to pick up a new motor & ESC combo :)

    The traxxas esc you just cut off with standard snips. They are designed to be cut. Actually just did one. Purchased the esc motor combo and the instructions show they can be snipped off. Kinda cool.

    I'll break out the snips tomorrow then and give it a whirl. Really looking forward to taking this setup to the track!
