Rustler speed attempt... - 02.26.2009, 05:07 PM

I know of up to 6 Rustlers attempting to crack the 100mph mark

There seems to be a lot of comment about nearly every aspect of each attempt, so I thought I'd throw my effort into the ring for a bit of flaming

Feel free to comment...

Details...

Motor = Neu 1515 1.5d
ESC = MMM
Lipo = 2 x Thunder Power 4S (3300 30C) in parallel
Gearing = 34 spur, 25 pinion Mod1
Wheels = Jato
Arms = RPM
Trans = stock
Shocks = Big bore
Shock towers = custom 4mm alloy/3mm CF
Chassis = custom 4mm alloy
Servo = stock
Body = XL5 modified
Front wing = inverted XL5 rear wing
Rear wing = BRP super wing
Wing mounts = custom alloy/CF

I'm jump to 17mm hexes with foams... Transmission won't last long with a 1515 - mine lastest about 3-4 runs...

Can that really still be called a rustler?

The video of my 2nd run...poor quality and for the first 60 seconds the runs are slow but it was testing runs to prove the design...it works well!

I wouldn't exactly call that a Rustler anymore.

That does bring about a good question though. At what point does the vehicle cease to be called by its original name and begin being referred to as a custom vehicle?

It's THE question I think skellyo

I haven't seen anything remotely 'stock' getting anywhere near 80mph, so maybe Custome Rustler is more appropriate for anything over 80??

My third run ended tragically with "Rustler" being run over...





So I'm onto Gen 3, which should be complete in a couple of weeks

Something like that is probably fitting.

No damage to MMM, Neu, reciever or lipo (they were cheap junk for the test) but nearly everything else was bent or broken...including the 4mm alloy chassis! It's a rebuild
