Default XO-1 cvd setup - stock slash?

Hey everyone,

I want to install the XO-1 cvd axels and carriers on my slash. What all do I need to do for that to work? Will the carriers bolt up to my stock slash A-Arms? Will the axels bolt right up to the stock diff?

Better yet... how do we get Traxxas to create a kit for this? I've read over and over that they've led to bringing an upgraded axle kit to the Slash aftermarket.

I haven't done it myself but from what I know you shouldn't have any problems with them fitting on the arms or diff. I'm with Bserious on this one. Traxxas promised us real steel cvds for the slash and I want some dag nabbit.

+1 on slash steel cvds..if they can make some for the XO-1 then they can create them for the slash..I think they won't cause they're overstocked on the stock cvds

I recently put the xo-1 driveshafts on my slash. You need the xo-1 steering blocks, rear carriers, of course the driveshafts, and the bearings to go with it. The set of stock caster blocks that hold the steering blocks on the slash with fit the xo-1 steering blocks with no problem. But if yours are plastic, getting the metal casters isn't a bad idea.

If I remember something else later, I'll post it up. But I think the xo-1 steering blocks, rear carriers, bearings and driveshafts are all you will need.

The parts mentioned all just bolt right on with no modifications. If you need links or a more detailed list, I'll get you one tomorrow evening if I have time to get on here.

All traxxas needs to do is make the outers for the slash.

Use the xo-1 hexs and 17mm 1/8 buggy wheels with the xo-1 axels. The best part of this upgrade is the larger bearings

Team Associated FT 12mm hexes modded to accept the 2.6mm axle pins.

This is a good idea. I had alot of 12mm wheels laying around with tires glued on them already, thats why I went the other way. Got the idea from Shark's setup.

Guys,

If I want to keep the 12mm hubs with the xo1 axel upgrade, do I just need to drill out the axel hole on the hub? Will the drive pin from the xo1 axel fit in the slash 12mm hub?

The pin that goes through the axle to hold the 12mm hexes in the stock truck are 2mm. The XO-1 driveshafts require the use of a 2.6mm pin, so you will have to open up the slot for the pin in the hexes. It's achievable, I am running modded Associated FT 12mm hexes on my truck with the XO-1 driveshafts. But the axles hole should be fine, the stock axles are 6mm, as are the XO-1 axles. If you need information, look at the Shark's slash thread. I'm running his 12mm hex setup. Works great.

Read through his whole thread, it's very informational. And has some good tips in it.
