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.
