If you haven’t seen that video make sure to go check it out, Um, you might be, you might notice i’m wearing the same shirt and it’s literally right after the last video um that’s, because i’m too excited i can’t. I have to start doing something to this truck because i’m too excited and i can’t wait so we’re gon na get started on assembling this truck um. If you didn’t watch the last unboxing video, i showed all the parts that we are gon na use to turn. This nitro slash into a monster, slash um, i don’t think i’ve ever seen it done with the nitro. I could be wrong, i mean someone probably out there has done it. I don’t think i’ve ever seen it the most i’ve seen it is with um electric slashes. So yeah we’re gon na put big 2.8 trenchers on there and uh turn this into a monster. Slash. I even got a new body as well um, but yeah so uh before we get started today, guys make sure to hit that subscribe. Button hit that notification bell. So you guys can see all my other content on this car and on all my other cars, but yeah let’s get into the video all right. So first we’re gon na start off with the pro line trenchers because i got ta mount the hexes on them see how they have no hexes. I got ta mount the hexes, so i’m gon na take these out.
Let’S see the hexes at the bottom there they are. I give you the hardware as well, so let me get my tool kit and rip open this bag, so i can find out, oh which one which size i need. So i have the tire here and i like these hexes or these removable hexes, because if you ever strip one out it’s easy to replace so i’m just going to tighten all these down and in the other tire and i’ll get and in the other two tires. So i’ll have all four tires done and i’ll come back to you when those are ready all right guys. So i have all the screws and the hexes on um, so there’s, two different offsets, oops. Sorry there is a tall offset like that one and then there’s the shorter offset so i’m using the shorter in the front and the taller in the rear, because the front on the slash has the tall offset, will hexes already so um. I think it’ll kind of even them out so yeah let’s get to installing these on the truck all right. So i got the new tires on and it’s pretty heavy. With these tires on and yeah, they line up pretty good um by using the short offset hexes. Here and then the talls in the rear um, i think i’m gon na move on to putting on the body post and uh yeah let’s, get to removing these body posts and putting on the extended ones all right.
So i’ve seen other videos where they did the monster, slash conversion and it seemed like these body. Posts are pretty hard to get to so it’s gon na be a little bit of a struggle to get a screwdriver in there because they’re phillips heads they’re, not any they’re, not hexed, so uh. Let me get a screwdriver real, quick and some of you guys may be wondering why i already have the tires on before even breaking it in and that’s, because i want to break it in with these tires, because it’s going to be running on these tires for The rest of its life, so i want to break it in on these tires because it needs to get used to these tires instead of the smaller tires and trying to put bigger tires on after so that’s. Why? I want to break it in on these tires and that’s. Why i’m putting them on before? So i had to bend this back and try to get the screwdriver in there all right. So i got the front body mount posts out now i have the new a pro line. One um there’s a little of a struggle, but you know it’s all good didn’t take that long and they also give you new hardware, which is hex hardware um to go along with the new body mount so let’s get this mounted in there all right. So i finally got the new body post on it took a little bit, but you know it’s kind of on um.
I had to use the old uh hardware – bine, not old, but the hardware that came with the truck, because the new one was just a little too long. So i just threw in the old hardware in and uh it doesn’t look like. The new hardware is like shorter or anything like all this. All those four screws are the same, so um yeah. I had to put the old hardware in but it’s fine um, everything’s good, but now we are gon na. Take the body out and kind of mock it up on here, so i know where i want it and where um, cred, it’ll look good actually before we do that i’m gon na go ahead and put on the the rear body post all right. So i have the rear body post on and i am gon na do the front. I even have the little um things for this is why i also like these body posts is because you could screw it on to your body. You don’t have body clips that’s. Why i also really like these so i’m just going to mock it up i’m, probably going to put on the last hole and then we’ll just go from there and then on the back. I don’t know i’ll figure something out there too, but yeah let’s get to it all right guys. So i have it the body pretty much on that’s how it’s gon na sit it’s a little high in the back, but i think i still like it.
I like how it looks so um that’s all mocked up. I even cut out um for the whole for the easy start in the back, and so now, i’m gon na break in the engine on the truck and as i’m breaking that in i’ma paint the body. So let’s get to that and i’ll show you the body after it’s all done and painted alright guys. So i just finished breaking it in and painting the body. As you can see, i painted the body while it was idling the two idle tanks and um. I already messed up the body and broke it right there um. That is because, when i was breaking it in and doing like the last, the last tank, where you’re going full throttle um, this thing is like a parachute, so it caught a bunch of wind and it flipped over caught a bunch of air and flipped over so That’S why the top is all messed up, but you know it’s a it’s, a basher body, so that’s how it looked that’s how it looks right now. So let me tell you how i got this thing to fit the post on the back. I had to cut a little bit because then they’d hit the like the turnbuckles when it was um like uh. The suspension was going up and down so i had to cut the little post that, like actually screw into i’ll, show you when i take the body off um.
Fapt, let me just take it off right now, but yeah i’m just gon na repair this by like drilling a couple holes into the sides and then putting zip small zip ties around it. So it looks like it has like some stitches, deci asta e, probably how i’ll repair that but yeah it kind of sucks that i broke it just by flipping it over this thing hauls it is so fast, Um, așa că da! So look i cut the post right there, as you can see right here, because then, when i’d go all the way down, it hit the turn buckles right there, but it’s just clearing them now so that’s fine. De asemenea, i have the tall offsets in the front and rear and um like the the hexes that came with the tires. I have the tall ones in the front and in the rear, and also i have the tall offset wheel, hexes, the ones from traxxas, the gray ones in the front and in the rear. I have them both everything tall, because if i didn’t have them, if i didn’t have the the wheel hexes that came with the tires, the tall ones and the front, then it hit when it turned now it doesn’t. But then this was like a little bit wider than this. So then i put the tall wheel, hexes the traxxas ones in the rear, so that it could stick out and it could be um. You know kind of the same wideness in the rear too, and it also looks better with the body because it fills out the body more and doesn’t look skinnier narrower with a lot of um space in between.
So it makes it look better with the body on and then i also ordered a. I have the hum pack, oh it’s in there. Actually i need a wire on the new switch, because this lead is really long. I didn’t realize how long it is it’s. One thing all the way up to right here and the switch that you need with the hump pack um isn’t, that long the wire isn’t that long so i’m gon na just solder on those pot that the the wires that go on to the receiver i’m gon Na just solder take the shorter ones off this new switch and solder them on that one, but i’m still waiting for this switch to come in so yeah. That is pretty much all i’ve had to do to get this to work, i think it looks great. I can’t wait to take this thing out and actually um, ştii, drive it around and bash. I suddenly put the stickers on this. Actually um i’ll actually do that right now, but i i love how it looks um. I hope you guys like it. I mean, i think it looks great, dar uh da, that’s gon na, be it for this video guys, if you guys enjoyed make sure you have a like comment, subscribe and i’ll see you guys in the next video.
