Default putting some mudflaps on that slash

Have a slash and want some mudflaps so you can be as fast as a SC10?

I found a mud flap system (kit) for the slash .... the prototype shown is on his web site but a improved mounting system is in the works. He said he'll try to see what the losi needs too. You can see a picture of the rubber molded mud flap on www.pprslots.com in the RC section on the left side.

Look here for a video clip of a slash with the mudflaps in action

looks cool, it would keep all the dirt out of my shoes! As long as they are as durable as the rest of the Slash!

I've added mud flaps... I will upload pics of my former slash build in a little bit......

This is a stretched rustler chassis, MM5700, 7075 aluminum hand made parts and .040-60 lexan sheet. The rubber used was cut from sheets and is not neoprene, but industrial grade .030 rubber bolted in with .80 black oxide hex screws stainless washers and nuts. When I sold it, I also made 2 additional mounting holes for the upper braces as I felt it would be too loose in the rear, but ended up being "tuneable" in a way for traction. too stiff is no good on all surfaces. Fun project, any questions PM me.

pretty cool chassis
any flex, or do the top red braces provide enough stiffness?

HBZ is releasing their rear mudflap kit any day now. I've got a set for my Slash and will be installing them in the next day or two.

I'll be posting up the installed pics in my HBZ Slash upgrades, rear cage, bumpers, & mud flaps!.

Thanks, the red tubes set inward like shown did provide flex but not alot, however I did make new mounting holes for adjustability to set them outward for 100% stifness.

Keeping mud and dirt off the chassis is cool, but mud flaps look stupid.

I like racing more then making a truck look scale, but those mud flaps look like an after thought to me.

Really, making it look good is the apeal of the SC classes.

Way back in the 80's I remember you HAD to have a driver figure to be legal to race. I always liked that idea, I always had a skull head or something sinister in mine.

Skull heads are awesome. I was thinking of putting a barbie or other chick driving my crawler.

Only if you are uncomfortable with it. Guys buy Barbies all the time. For their daughters, nieces, cousins, sisters, wives, so on and so forth. It's kewl that you don't like the mudflaps, just don't hate on others because they do. We all are different and thank god for that.

those front mudflaps look pretty sweet if you ask me. they run them on alot of the fullsize short coursers, and would definitely keep the front tires from kickin as much debris up into the chassis
