Those slicks are nice, but I can see you wearing them down quickly! I didnt even notice about the rear A-arms, thats how 'natural' a setup it is. All you need to do is polish it to death like one of the Candymans creations for that extra bling factor....

SWEET setup--really makes me want to convert my losi 10th scale nitro truck to brushless. I keep thinking it will handle better than the elec. version. I think it is built alot better also.

I need some of those tires. I'm currently using imex tires for a jato and if I pull the throttle they will spin and spin. I can pull it and they will just keep spinning untill I let go of the throttle.

Seth I wouldn't bother with those tires. First off I had to drill them out to fit on the Rustler axles which I think are 3/16. Then they had to be spaced out because the inside of the rim was rubbing on the camber links. They did have pretty good traction but a perfectly smooth surface would be better because they aren't pneumatic tires and therefore don't absorb all the little imperfections in the road. In other words the truck bounced around a little. On top of that they don't last very long for 30 bucks a pair.

I am now willing to admit that I'll probably NEVER be finished upgrading this thing!



^^^ Feigao 9XL taken from the Tamiya fan. BK 12020, also from the Tamiya.



^^^ Mod 1 gears; 36T, 38T, and 40T spurs; 14T, 16T, and 18T pinions.

More to come. Unfortunately.

Hey guess what- I've already changed my mind. If you missed my Tamiya EDF thread, I ordered (2) 4s 4Ah LiPo packs from MaxAmps to use with the 9XL in the fan unit. The 9XL will go back into the fan. I will order a 12XL...and an MGM 16024. Yeah, 8s in a Rustler. NO! I'm not crazy. Why would you say that?!

Essentially just drilling a couple new holes onto the chassis to mount the reversed tranny, and I think grinding a little from the bottom of the tranny too since it is curved and needs to be flat. It has been done with a stock rusty too which means its a simple job in theory.

8s in a rustler... no, not nuts, but certifiable **does the bonkers dance**.

Drill and countersink two more holes like so:





If you so choose, you can also drill new holes for the two smaller screws that hold the transmission down. It wasn't necessary for me because I used the aluminum bar to bridge over to the top deck.

Ah, I always wondered what the 2 extra small screws were for in that area, now I understand fully.

I don't know. I still need to buy both the motor and ESC.

I'll let you know how far back in time it goes when I get it running.

Hmm, does anyone make a Delorean bodyshell, that would be rather cool, if somewhat bizarre....
