Currently I’m running a slash 2wd as my main car.
I’ve owned it for almost 8 years now it’s a fun car and I’ve probably put enough money in it so probably ganna get something else soon but here’s what I did to it.

I’ve done a handful of upgrades/replaced parts here’s some of the things I’ve done
Extreme Heavy Duty Traxxas Driveshafts
PROLINE INTERCO TSL SX SUPER SWAMPER SC 2.2"/3.0"
Vxl3s
Traxxas Fox racing Ford Raptor body
23t Pinion
86t Spur
60wt Shock Oil
Not really an upgrade but here’s the battery’s I run currently there all traxxas brand and nimh
3x 3000 mah
1x 3300 mah
1x 4200 mah
Plus the traxxas dual charger

Those are the upgrades I’m sure I missed something but here’s the things I’ve replaced

Rear Carrier
Motor Rebuild Kit
Slipper Clutch Shaft
Receiver
Stock Tires
Rear Bumper
Stock Driveshafts
Spur Gears
Receiver Box Covers
Hexes
Slipper Clutch Pads

Got all the parts today and tested it I think the front a bit stiff the extended hold down for the battery is coming tomorrow and the hubs are extremely small compared to stock and need to be drilled or a different screw but the wheelie bar is good but the wheels on it slide off the rollers so I need to glue them on the shocks are 2x the width of the stocks and they didn’t fit in the front slot so I had to shave a lot off but there better than busting a shock cap every 2 seconds lol I need some different gearing and I need some fans it gets so hot after half battery so fans definitely and for gearing I’m thinking hot racing 72 tooth spur and a 34 or 35 tooth pinion so yea video for that is coming out Wednesday and I also need to stop into the hobby for tires cause I’m around there all the time and it’s like $5 extra online but yes I’ll get those tires probably Tuesday so stay updated

Update I was driving yesterday and crashed not hard but at about 40-45 mph and a pin fell out then somehow I did another run an the driveshaft whent clunk onto the ground after going about 70mph I was going like 20mph and the pin that fell out was holding the driveshaft in so I need a new dog bone now contacted MIP for a new one cause I’ve only ran it not even 10 times here’s the pic

Just kidding I was to exited videos out now
So for the problem with the rear hub you ordered, I think Amazon or Atomik rc sent you the wrong part. On the package it says steering knuckles but you did order the rear hubs via the link in the bio. I would contact amazon to see if they can resend you the part or if they can't you can always try to make it fit. I have those same parts on my rustler, they work great. The only thing you would have to do with the rear hubs is do a longer screw and nut on the end for the camber link because with my rustler it didn't have a nut on the end and the camber link came out.

I like that body. Post some pics when you get it on. Do you have to get body mounts too or will the factory ones work?

The dude at the rc shop said I needed the proline ones but I’ll take extra plastic and cut holes in the same spots as extendeders that’s all the proline ones are
Also I’m going to start the process tomorrow sadly it was to winds and going to rain today

I love that body. I'd like that in 1/5 scale for my outcast.

Used 2wd slashes sell pretty cheap. I saw one recently on FB marketplace that sol;d for $150. I'm sure you could get a little more than that for yours but unfortunately these cars don't hold value very well. I see a few sales going on right now for 2wd RTR's at $200
