New Product Release – Scalpel Body and Front Bumper Conversion Kit

Illuzion – Slash 4×4 – Scalpel Speed Run body

Speed is everything; it’s the greatest gift of R/C and particularly with the Traxxas Slash 4×4. An extremely popular off-road truck, the Slash 4×4, has all the components of an absolute beast of an on-road vehicle. JConcepts introduces the Scalpel speed-run body and front bumper conversion to convert the Slash 4×4 into an insane speed-run machine. Take on your personal salt-flats, drag strip or closed circuit course with power, speed, agility and style with JConcepts.

Looking straight into the headlights you can tell right away something is different about the Scalpel. A menacing look from the front-end highlighted by a dramatic chin-spoiler, the front-end is built for speed and direction. Large fenders allow plenty of clearance for the 2.8” G-Locs tires and the extremely low roof-line cuts like a knife. A shallow bed area gives the Scalpel a truck-like appearance while maintaining that all inclusive speed-line structure. Finishing off the body is clean and smooth with the inclusion of grill, headlight, taillight and miscellaneous logos that make the Scalpel look the part.

Features:
· Original JConcepts Scalpel design and concept
· Chiseled front-end with chin-spoiler
· Extremely low-profile roof-line
· Large fenders to allow tire clearance
· Shallow bed area, truck-line appearance
· Includes detailed Scalpel decal sheet

Slash 4×4 – front bumper conversion kit (converts front end to accept #0240 Scalpel body)

Building the unique Scalpel speed-run vehicle centers around a new bumper design and layout. The front bumper conversion kit comes complete with an assortment of high-end parts to ready the Slash 4×4 for function and durability. Fiberglass upper and lower plates with hinge pin retainer build a stout structure. Low-profile, aluminum body mounts for all 4 corners are included to slam the body to speed-run standards. Bulky aluminum stand-offs and cushy / protective “touring car” style bumper assembled with high-end 3 and 4mm hardware throughout tighten the complete assembly.

Making the conversion:

Converting the Slash 4×4 to the Scalpel speed-run vehicle requires body, bumper conversion and tires and wheels are highly recommended. The assembly is simple and takes only minutes to complete. First, remove stock bumper assembly and replace with the newly acquired speed-run accessories and foam bumper. Make small changes to suspension set-up to limit down and up travel per instructions. Detail, paint and trim Scalpel body. Prep, mount and glue JConcepts 2.8” G-Locs tires onto 2.8” Rulux wheels and secure to the vehicle. Locate, mark and ream the body mount locations and drop Scalpel body into place. Hit your favorite closed circuit for the wildest speed-runs imaginable.

  1. Hey Rich,

    Will this body now work with my 2wd Slash, Robby Gordon edition?

    Also, will it work with a low cg chassis – on 2wd OR 4wd Slash?

    Obviously, the front bumper conversion is needed too. Will that now work on Slash 2wd and/or with lower chassis conversion?

    1. These are designed for the 4×4 Slash only. The way the 2wd suspension is set-up will not allow you to lower your truck and have the same wheelbase. It will work with the LCG 4×4 Slash and the Traxxas Rally.

  2. got a 2 wheel drive slash with limited edition black chassis …will scalpel body and bumper conversion kit work?if not can you send me details as to the mods i would need to make it all compatible

    1. The Scalpel conversion is designed for the Slash 4×4 or 1/10 Rally. You can use the body but it is difficult to get the correct ride height due to the way the front suspension kicks back. The bumper conversion will not fit the 2wd.

    1. The body could be made to fit but the bumper would not be compatible. You will have to adjust the ride height in order for the wheels to line up correctly.

  3. when will it be available and what site can I order it from.. I have a 4×4 slash and love it.. this body will make my car even better..
