Speed is everything; it’s the greatest gift of R/C and particularly with the Traxxas Slash 4x4. An extremely popular off-road truck, the Slash 4x4, has all the components of an absolute beast of an on-road vehicle. JConcepts own design, the Scalpel, and front bumper conversion, convert the Slash 4x4 into an insane speed-run machine. Take on your personal salt-flats, drag strip or closed circuit course with power, speed, agility and style with JConcepts.
The 1972 Chevy C10 truck body by JConcepts is a perfect complement to the Scalpel Speed-Run conversion kit for the Slash 4x4. Officially licensed, the C10 boasts a wide-body stance which allows it to tame high-speeds while showing off that all important retro look from the 1970’s. Large front chin-spoiler with maximum impact grill treatment leaves the competition green with envy.
Large fenders allow plenty of clearance for the 2.8" G-Locs tires and the C10 roof-line stands firm. A shallow bed area gives the truck-like appearance while maintaining that all inclusive speed-line structure. Finishing off the body is clean and smooth with the inclusion of grill, headlight, taillight and miscellaneous logos that make the C10 look the part. Throw it back in time, grab a Chevy C10 for your Scalpel conversion kit and blast into the future.
Making the conversion: Converting the Slash 4x4 to the Scalpel speed-run vehicle requires body, bumper conversion and tires and wheels are highly recommended. The assembly is simple and takes only minutes to complete. First, remove stock bumper assembly and replace with the JConcepts conversion kit speed-run accessories and foam bumper. For the C10, use the standard kit front body mounts and the included low profile body mounts on the rear. Make small changes to suspension set-up to limit down and up travel per instructions. Detail, paint and trim body. Prep, mount and glue JConcepts 2.8" G-Locs tires onto 2.8" Rulux wheels and secure to the vehicle. Locate, mark and ream the body mount locations and drop body into place. Hit your favorite closed circuit for the wildest speed-runs imaginable.
