BRONCO GT SLASH
DANIEL PORTER PHILADELPHIA, PA
3D-printed scale accessories for crawlers are pretty common these days, but Daniel wanted something a little different. He bought himself a 3D printer and started by revamping drag-car wings and diffusers he had previously built in styrene and aluminum, but he also wanted to do something with Pro-line’s Bronco body. That’s when it hit him to combine the two and create this: the Bronco GT. It sits on a Traxxas Slash 4X4 with an LCG chassis. Power comes from a Castle Creations MM2 speed control and a 2650Kv system. Some upgrades include FLM aluminum A-arms, Pro-line HD axles, and a Tekno center driveshaft. Daniel favors the Slash for its versatility and wide array of aftermarket parts, but this project is really about the look. On went a suitable diffuser and splitter for the front. The boxy Bronco needed help with downforce, so he added a wing to the roof. The hood wears a replica of the hood scoop patterned after Ken Block’s Hoonicorn Mustang. To help reduce drag and add ventilation, he cut out the rear window and tailgate and covered it with mesh, then added a pair of exhaust tips to finish it off.
