I have built this thing up with reliability in mined. So far nothing has either broken or come loose. I normally put 3x 5000mah 3s packs threw it on every outing and the motor is showing about 85 degrees c. Haven't used a 4s bttery yet because its going heaps fast and has plenty of power for around the local park down the street. Its fun watching the dogs chasing it.
Oh yeah pro line bulldog body all the way!!!!! Just finished painting it today!! I am a newbie at lexan painting so it isn't perfect! Rustler vxl bought in 2013 2 stock 25c 7.4v lipo batteries, 4 pro line bad lands tires on desperado rims, slash driveshafts fast eddy bearings, blue rpm front a-arms, black rpm front bearing carriers castor blocks and blue rpm rod ends, rear blue RPM a arms and TINI shafts on the rear and RPM rear bearing carriers, and last but not least, a pro line bulldog body!!
DONT KNOW WHY PICS ARE SOOOO SMALL

After a fun day in the rain/in the dirt:
I added an RPM front bumper after reading some necessary upgrade threads. I plan on getting some Traxxas aluminum caster blocks at some point, too (though I may wait for the stock ones to break first).
Love this truck! It's my next step into the hobby from a Losi Micro-T 1/36 truck.
Well here she is. Not much left that's stock on this one. I'm kinda stoked that I might actually get to race it later this summer/fall. The local track is adding a 2wd Stadium Truck class finally

My rustler. I'll be shooting for the 70+ club this weekend if my GRPs and rpm gear case show up.
Hello all. New guy here. Not only to the site, but the hobby as well. With that being said I hope I can learn from all of you. But enough with my cheesy introduction. I'll let my rusty do the talking. It's mostly stock but I've added a couple of things since I got it (week ago today).
