NEW Pics! - 06.03.2007, 12:04 AM

Well I think I'm FINALLY done with this one. Other than replacing broken parts, I don't have any more modifications in mind for the Rustler.

Hasn't been run yet, hopefully I'll get a chance on Tuesday.






















What say you?

Very Nice!!! Looks sturdy.

One sugestion. Take the sharp points off of those battery boxes you made. Those sharp corners and Lipos just scare the bejesus out of me. Lipo packs are fragile and any kind of crash and those sharp edges will be poking holes in the lipos. NOT GOOD. Unless you like BBQ Rustler.


I can't decide if its more fun
to make it...
or break it...

Thanks guys. Yeah I am going to round off those battery trays, probably fold some electrical tape over the edges too just to be safe.

Looks great. My only question is why do the batteries have to be on their side? Might as well make the chassis a tid bit wider and lay them down flat. But still looks great.

Thanks Seth. I though about laying the batteries down, but I would have to make another, wider, chassis. Also it would need a wider body, which I think would interfere with the front suspension travel. I'll probably knock the ride height down another half-inch before I run it anyways.

Hey I just ran it about a half hour ago. HOLY SH*T this thing is FAST! You know that video of the 134 MpH car? No it doesn't go 134 MpH, probably half of that. I dont know for sure because I don't have a GPS, and my street wouldn't allow me to reach terminal velocity anyways. Here is a picture of my street for reference:





There's an airport a couple miles from my house. I might go down there and ask to borrow their runway. But seriously it was going at least 50 MpH before I had to turn. Even then it drifted around the whole sidewalk. You can see the sidewalk in the second picture behind the light pole. It runs very well though. The motor does get really hot to the touch, but anything would with 1000W+ going through it. The ESC gets warm to the touch, and the batteries don't even flinch. I need some stickier tires though. Do you guys have any suggestions?

I believe you man. Do you have the sticky version of the HPI V-groove tires?

I have both versions of the V-grooves. Zero traction with the harder compound at anything over 30mph.
I had lots of traction with the stickier V-grooves. Just had to tape them up from the inside. They balloon like mad. This is what happend to mine without tape.

Wow thats a lot of ballooning! I didn't buy the sticky V-grooves because they were $4 more a pair. LOL I spend money on everything but good tires! I might give them a try. Also, what kind of tape did you use for the inside of the tires? Thanks.
