you should be able to pick up some shims on tower or whereever and put one or two behind the pinion - just enough so that it does not bind. Really helps keep them fron stripping out, ran brushless in my WK for a while with no issues. As long as they have a 5mm opening in the center, they'll fit. I had a bunch in my parts box from various projects...I believe these are what i have: 5mm shims
Oh, OK. I have some of those laying around too. Forgot all about them, Thanx

Upper chassis rough cut. Have to drill the holes for the mounts and shocks, and i might see if i can "machine out" some areas, then polish it up. Lower chassis is next, which i have to still sit down and design

Bottom chassis rough cut....I fubar'ed the one side with the holes, they are all out of whack, but i figured out a better way to do it and the other side came out much better. good for now...but it really bothers me.
Holes are for attaching stuff (cage?) and really just for looks otherwise to break up all the aluminum. Put the 2 pieces of the chassis together to see how it looks... i cut everything a little long, so it need some trimming but starting to come together!

Got the chassis drilled out for the front bulkhead, bent in some kick-up and got it mounted. Also started piecing together the back. Everything's rough mounted till i get the drivetrain and steering test fitted.

Lookin sweet. Do you plan on beefing up the rear ball-joints? I use to brake those all the time on my X-Factor which is why I get my ball-joints at McMaster-Carr (.com).

not sure yet, either using the std. tamiya 8mm ones or whatever they are or using a set from traxxas. Never had either one give me a problem.

should have the tranny, steering, and rear axle mounted up over the weekend. then the real fun begins!!

Got a front end! Got my 90mm swingshafts and they didn't fit the drive cups, but as i was mocking it up, the front track came out a little wider than i thought so i used some tamiya Wild Dagger suspension arms and some old swingshafts and everything lined up fine. Also got the steering rack shoehorned in and a servo mounted. Just need an upper deck to tie it all together.






Also, while having all my metal tools out i cut out a 2wd slash chassis thats being built up out my old stampede. Drilled it so i could use up to an 8 cell battery or use a std. size and move it around for weight distribution.
Have to cut out a top deck for this one yet.

got a little more done tonight, transmission mounted and drilled "just a few" holes in the rear of the chassis. I needed the practice
(still not straight, but getting better) and it really lightened things up. Should look good when everything's all finshed out. Everything is still rough cut, will clean it up later after all the rear axle mock-up is done. Meanwhile, ordered new maxx shocks all around and keeping am eye out for bumpers and odds and ends.

any chance you could post a copy of that template for the slash chassis with the measurements???

ive got a HUGE box of stampede's in various states of disrepair and the thought of making a slash out of them seems like a very smart idea. (and in reality i just need an excuse to paint up a pro-line carnage body lol)
