Cubby mentioned that someone sent us some info on a new LCG Chassis for the Traxxas Slash 4×4 being produced by Traxxas that apparently is being tested. Well shortly after someone else sent word that another company is also working on a low center of gravity chassis for the Slash 4×4. We have been told that these are cad drawings from STRC that are being used to lay out their new chassis. We have no idea how far along their chassis is. If it’s still in the ‘cad’ stage, or if it’s already being tested. We have reached out to ST Racing Concepts for more info, and an ‘official word’ but until then, you’ll just have to check out the leaked photos. (Unless they ask us to take them down)
It looks like there is going to be a lot of aluminum and graphite involved. I highly doubt the official Traxxas one will have any graphite, and probably little aluminum.
UPDATE: Adding some fuel to the rumor, our ‘little birdie’ says STRC is aiming for less than $100 when it hits. THAT would be pretty impressive since there are a lot of BIG parts going into a conversion like that. Guess we will wait and see.
