My first post on the forum.... got a brushed rustler cpl months back, my first rc, love it and starting to love the hobby. Spent the last cpl months searching rc site, traxxas.com, ect... making plans to upgrade over the winter. Not once did my brain clue in to the idea of simply getting a new VXL brushless. Thank you MONKEYPIARATE for the most simple yet genius suggestion...lol. Found tip on an old thread. was planning on a new brushless combo, bearings all around, tranny upgrade.... all which come with the VXL. Everything I looked up would have cost approx $250-300 with tax and shipping. Why would anyone do this as a brushed rustler owner?? I know you could get a cheaper brushless combo, cheaper everthing but even that would push $150-200.
Thanks again for the suggestion.... all that research and reading, cant believe I didnt think of that or find the suggestion anywhere else! Next post is the picture thread.... my first attemp at a custom painted body, lotta fun, starting a new one already. Check it out, love some more tips and ideas.
