Thumbs up Project: Slaughter ( Pro-4 )

This project has gone through a few changes before desiding on a direction. It was always going to be nitro but after pulling it off the shelf and knocking the dust off I came to a final desision. Short Course Pro-4 Electric.

What I had goin- Hpi MT-2 chassis and WK rear

electrics placement



It's not SC style but I'm dying to put that spare on there

Thanx Talon

Any recommendations on mounting a brushless? The ol' Slash might hafta cough up the sidewinder.

shouldnt have to do anything different than mounting a standard motor set up. as long as you have the space for the longer motor to fit, which it looks as if you do.


so my only suggestion really is, DO IT.

the simplest motor mount with that kind of chassis is a simple peice of sheet aluminium bent into an L shape - part of it bolts to the flat chassis pan, the upright part has holes drilled for the motor to fit.

the only problem is if its not braced in some way or else excessively thick it can flex under G force and move the pinion away or out of line with the spur.This might not sound so bad but it can trash spur gears.

Might be an idea if you go this way to make the motor mount have another bend at the top with one or more holes drilled in it so you can make a brace in the form of a flat plate with holes drilled to bolt to the bulkheads near the spur gear and to the top of the motor mount. this would make the motor plate look kinda like a ']' from the side.

Hope that helps

Very cool looking build btw, really nice to see a slash sized scaler

Looks sweet! Gotta have that spare up there and maybe add some proline lights on the front. Maybe switch to a more baja/dt theme. Either way its a great build.

Wow. I had to dig this up from page 4. Been watchin OldSchool build his and figured I'd catch up. Was being held-up by the rearend but I finally got it all shimmed up right.

The transmission uses the hpi mt-2 slipper with a dunbro reduction unit. Threw my sidewinder in there and it started out geared way low. Desided to pick up a 6 pc pinion pack and geared it up to a 24.37:1 Final Drive for now.

First run I tried a 3300 6cell Nm and the radio would cut in and out. I stole the RX outa the slash and bumped up to a 4500 7cell. Got a little better. Finally dropped in a 7cell and no problems. Probably just go Lipo and call it a day.

Tried different battery placements too. For jumping and hook-up it likes the battery all the way back.

And here's a quicky
