II have wanted a slayer for the longest time but never got one because they dont drive well. I will watch these to see how they work. I really wish Traxxas would come out with one more buggy based. They do look SICK!

By the looks of it, yes. It seems that the only difference in suspension arms is the very end where the ball goes in. So those should swap over easily to give you that widened width.

I think the only other difference is the length, which I think all they did was use a longer chassis.

Old (the bigger top picture) compared to the new (the smaller bottom picture). You can see the added length just in front of the transmission where there is extra space on the Slayer Pro. You can also see the difference in the arms too. Both the arms and chassis should be able to swap to your older Slayer, or so I would imagine.

Yep, looks like arms, body, chassis, and maybe driveshafts.....it will be worth it I'm sure.

Forgot about the driveshafts, I think you would need all but the rear driveshaft, but then again, I'm not much of a Traxxas guy. Don't know a whole lot about them other than the old Nitro Sport SE () and the Maxx lineup. I would love to drive a Slayer, but no one has them except the hobby shop, and he isn't willing to let me test it.... You would think that a converted Slayer (Pro or not) would devestate the Slash 4x4 Platinum, but what do I know.

I don't think the pushrods will need replaced, they appear to be the same size. If you look you can see what I mean. The old Slayer had the pushrods closer to the wheels compared to the new Slayer Pro, telling me that the pushrods are the same size. That is just going based on sight, you would be best to compare the parts list.

The body should be a touch bigger than the old one, seeing as it now has to cover a wider and longer chassis. I'm sure it would fit the old Slayer, but it would probably look a little goofy. Kind of like a small city boy wearing clothes too big, you know?

Since it's basically 1 inch wider and over an inch longer, I wonder how it compares to an SC8/SC8e...
