Here is my Slash 4x4 PE modded to fit an IGT1 Subaru WRC body....I bash this thing hard and the only thing that has broken are some of the fins under the spoiler that are meant for decoration anyway.

MY 1/8 Traxxas Rally VXL

The whole conversion didn't take that long. It was mainly tuning the shocks right using nitro fuel limiters to get it to ride the way I wanted it....but due to the chassis design and high COG it still handles like a short course truck at least on pavement.

On gravel, grass, dirt, or the beach it holds its own even with the stock VXL system. Just wish Proline would make a rally treaded tire. The closest 1/8 off road rally tire I could find were the Proline Knuckles.

Oh and this was months before STRC released the GT8 conversion kit which they retail for around $100 not including body/wheels/tires. I just dug around for longer body posts, scored a good deal on a rally body, used some 1:8 wheel adapters to run buggy wheels. My conversion cost me about $80 INCLUDING WHEELS/TIRES

If you go back to the 12mm hex you can run these: Rally Tire Set 4 Kyosho DBX DBX ve DRT DRX DST Subaru | eBay

I don't know anything about them but, the one on the left looks like it is a 2.2/3.0 wheel like the Slash.
