FAN FRIDAY FEATURED BUILD BY LEONARD HARROD
We are going to be eating turkey sammiches until Christmas, but we put our sammiches aside to usher in Leoard’s ’55 Drag Slash. Leonard did some customizing to get the look he wanted and that blue paint is striking for sure. Very nice indeed a ’55 is always beloved, a customized ’55 is near and dear to every heart.
The build started out as a Traxxas Slash 2 wheel drive VXL. It has RPM rear suspension arms which are shorter and allowed the rear tires to be moved in closer to the chassis. The rear shafts have been cut down to fit the new set up. Also replaced are the rear turn buckles which are also shorter. I bought the body already painted. The wheelie bars are from RCReaper. Larger rear wheel hubs where used to fit the Traxxas Funnycar tires. Up front are Losi Slider wheels and tires. It also has the Traxxas OBA. The front and rear springs have also been cut to achieve the proper stance.
