The Traxxas Slash is one of best entry level vehicles to come on the market. These vehicles are easy to drive and are just plain fun. One of the complaints people have is that the Slash is that it is a bit high off the ground for serious racing. Traxxas improved their current Slash 4x4 with a lower center of gravity body this last year, but didn’t do the same of the 2wd version. A few companies have come out with excellent options for converting your 2wd Slash such as the STRC Kit and the ProLine Pro-2 LCG Performance Kit
Now Traxxas is offering the Slash 2wd Low-CG Conversion kit (#5830) to take your Slash 2wd down low. Here is more information taken from the Traxxas site:
The complete Low-CG Conversion Kit (#5830) includes a blue low-CG chassis, black nerf bars and lower chassis, battery hold down, optimized low-CG front shock springs, and hardware. For personalized Slash low-CG chassis customization, the low-CG chassis, lower chassis, and nerf bars are available seperately in three colors: black, blue, and grey.
The Low-CG chassis holds the battery and electronics as deep in the chassis as possible to position weight low in the chassis. The low-CG design dramatically increases corner speed and stability no matter where you drive.
