Here is my rustler i just got in a trade. I just tore it down and re assembled it after cleaning everything since it was filthy dirty. Id post it all here, but its easier to just link to a thread with pictures already in it:
Let me know what you guys think:D

Thanks guys. I just acquired a nice pro.15 for it, and put it on there. She runs like a top now, and looks pretty decent too!

They are pro line dirt hawgs i think. So far i havent ran it on anything but ice and snow. I feel like they will be good in dirt, and a dry road, but on an icy road it spins out easily, and it wont go anywhere at all in the snow. They are definately better than stock tires though.

yes the 2wd kinda is a pain to drive on snow and ice...i think next winter im going to over gear it a lot...cuz the bigger gears will take longer to spool up...therefor i wont have to wrap my heatsink...and the engine wont rev up in a second so it will take longer therefor more traction...WWWWWWHHHHHHOOOOOOO

I am really anxious to run another tank through it. The roads have cleared some now, and it was dark and icy when i ran the tank through it with the pro.15. The little bit i drove it though, it seems to be plenty powerful, and it seems to be a little overgeared.
I bought some new glow igniter batteries tonight, and put a new plug in it, and i plan to try and run it some tomorrow. Hopefully i can get several tanks in on it in the daylight to get a better idea of how it runs, and maybe tune it just a little better, even though it was running pretty good the other night.
I really like this old rustler with the pro.15.:D I think I will keep it and run the heck out of it, and i may put another pro.15 on it if this one dies since it seems to run good and be plenty powerful. My guess is the O.S. carb is a big help in tuning and running good too.
Id like to put some bigger meatier tires on it, and try to keep it a pretty nice clean truck, but probably pretty much stock other than that. I think ill keep the old stock brown chassis just for the originality of it. I cant wait till this summer so i can run it some in the nice weather.
I have to saw some wood in the morning from the ice storm we had brining down some trees, but after that, id like to run my rustler a few tanks and get it tuned in a little better and get more used to driving it, and the power it has and how it reacts. Im not sure what spur is on it, but i may try to stick a bigger one on it to lower the gear ratio a little.
Thanks for the support guys:cool:
