    I had an EXI in my Rustler. It did the job well, but it was really loud. Louder than any digital servo I have ever heard, but for the price it was awesome.

    I know everyone trashes Integy, but I have used their c-blocks on 2 Nitro Rustlers and 1 Electric Rustler. They never let me down. They are just a solid piece of aluminum.

    I always replace mine with aluminum towers. It really helps stiffen up the chassis and I have never had any issues with aluminum towers bending or breaking.

    If you decide to get a new controller, look into the FlySky GT3B or the GT3C. I have 2 GT3B's and love them. I bought the controller and a few extra rx's for way less than $100.
