    Thanks guys. I do have some Mashers, but they have orange wheels to match my Rustler. They work great, just figured the stock tires would look better in photos. I plan on getting some Trencher...

    Yeah, it's definitely not my cleanest paint job, I was rushing, but I'm digging the color scheme. I used Pactra Metallic Blue, Lime Green, and Indy Silver. I used Alclad Chrome for the bumpers. I...

    It runs great! I'm still using 7cell Nimh batteries, but it scoots with the VXL. The only thing I really need to address is the Integy shocks, just gotta pick up a pair of STRC rears when I have the...

    Ok, on to Phase 2.


    Installed the receiver in the space under the ESC tray.
    Cleaned and dyed chassis and trans case.
    Swapped camber links with Traxxas blue links and RPM rod ends (dyed...
  5. Stampede restoration - The Mean Green Blue Beauty!

    About a year ago, I picked up a brushless Stampede for $60. Not a VXL (the motor/ESC was an RTR combo made by Racer's Edge), but aside from the brushless combo it had some other upgrades: 2.4Ghz...

    I've started rebuilding my Stampede, so I wanted to do a final recap of the Rustler, if only for my own sake.

    Everything runs great, I'm still using RPM carriers at the moment, just had to file...

    I usually agree, ManDime. Thing is, by the time I finagle a ride to my post office and pay for shipping, I'm already out $20. Figure I'll hang on to it for a while and put it on Craigslist in case...

    Yeah, I was afraid of that, that's not even worth the shipping/hassle. In the trash it goes, lol

    Thanks for the input. I'd be including everything, clutch and bell, carb, and header/pipe, brand new pullstart, ez-start gears and wire harness.

  10. Value of TRX 3.3 that needs new con rod, piston, and sleeve?

    Like the title says, I'm trying to see if my TRX 3.3 is still worth anything considering it needs a new con rod, piston, and sleeve. The con rod snapped and broke a piece off the piston. :( I'm...

    I'll be getting a 1/8 scale brushless combo, but I only plan on using 4s. I'm thinking about using the 3.3 diffs to get it built, and if they don't hold up I'll look into getting some LST ones.

    It looks like the only difference between the nitro and electric diffs is that the electric has those little support pieces. Think I'll have any issues re-using the old 3.3 diffs?

    Looking good Clint! It's a pain to use the nuts on the RPM trans... And if you have a swami bar or similar, you have to buy longer bolts. I have an issue where the RPM rear carriers rubbed...

    Thanks for sharing your build, humayrayakongkinaon. As it happens, someone is offering me a locked transmission and an Integy motor mount kit. I'm well aware of Integy's reputation, but before we...

    I'm not sure how the twin titans compare to a single velineon, but my brushed E-maxx has a lot of torque, consistently pops wheelies, and can jump over my head. Runtimes are easily 25-30 mins on my...

    The brushed Emaxx does 'only' go 30 mph, but like I said, that's fine for me. Plus, I can get a brushed setup for next to nothing by trading, but a decent brushless combo would have to wait. You...

    -Reverse is a MUST.
    -The 2 speed trans would be nice, but I'm not sure if it's necessary. I thought it would be nice to gear up for normal running and gear down for climbing/crawling, but a good...
  18. Revo 3.3, weighing options for going electric...

    I have a Revo 3.3, and I would like to convert it to electric. Thing is, there are so many options, and I'm on a tight budget.

    I originally planned on using the E-Revo/Summit chassis (assuming...

    Not sure what you mean about the hexes, but if you're talking about the hex thickness, then no. My 1/10 2wds have thicker gray hexes up front and thinner black ones in the rear. The extra thickness...

    Oh, I agree that it's a good upgrade, it's worth it just for having equal offsets. In my case, I had lots of tires already, so it would have required that I buy new ones. If RC Nintendo just has...

    The Proline Protrac kit has a lot of advantages, but there are some things to keep in mind.

    1) Having the same wheel offset will increase the number of wheel options to you, and improve...

    The only differences between the Stampede and the MJs are purely cosmetic: different bodies, part colors, and tires. In my eyes, the MJs are just Stampedes with licensing. The geometry, chassis,...

    Wow, wrecked! That Bandit to XO-1 conversion is incredible! I'm a bit limited on my phone, did you post a build thread?

    I'm surprised no one makes a carbon fiber top plate for the Rustler/Bandit with all the Jangification you see going on. Or have I just not looked hard enough?

    Haha, well be careful about stains. It doesn't stick to stainless steel, but I imagine it could ruin flooring or a countertop. I have an old pot that I use just for dyeing. Come to think of it, if...
