JConcepts unveils their new RC Monster Truck Conversion Kit for the Traxxas Slash 4×4 and Stampede 4×4! The conversion kit includes carbon fiber front and rear shock towers, aluminum shock stand-offs, body mount adapters and aluminum caster blocks. Using this combination of parts along with other parts (not included) help build the ultimate monster truck from two of either of the most popular Traxxas vehicles on the market. Check out the rest of the details and pictures of the conversion kit below.
The 4mm long-stroke front shock tower has been designed to use a longer Traxxas shock (not included) for better shock geometry in rugged conditions. The carbon material improves response of the suspension and provides a stable setting for the included aluminum body mount adaptor. The rear tower, also in 4mm material, utilizes the stock geometry but with the addition of carbon fiber and precise machining, tightens up the feel of the rear suspension. The included aluminum shock stand-offs position the shocks at an advantageous angle and allows the shocks to work as designed.
All the changes to the geometry conclude with the new caster blocks. The camber link position has been revised and extra material trimmed to allow smaller diameter wheels needed for monster truck wheels and tires. The machined aluminum blocks are durable and are finished in a high-gloss black anodizing. The set includes heavy-duty 3mm hardware to secure the transformation. This set of parts, combined with additional items to complete a conversion to the ultimate monster truck for racing, bashing and free-styling.
In the hands of Fred “Free-style” Reep, the conversion set has won the NR/CTPA World Championships and Spring Nationals in the highly competitive Free-style division. At the R/C Monster Jam World Finals in Las Vegas, Nevada, Fred once again locked down 1st place during day 1 to win the Free-style competition. During day 2 at the World Finals, Dan “The Man” Wyatt won a thrilling competition with the JConcepts conversion set in front of a packed arena. Check out the photos below for assembly instructions and the list of additional items needed to complete the monster truck conversion.
