    Too many upgrade choices

    I just picked up a rusty vxl . Not sure to keep it as is or take some of the ups out for my slash . It has integy alloy everything lol - with a second set of RPM arms, casters , knuckles ,towers and all the stock parts . Have 3 trans cases (black , stock and alloy ) . My slash has the protrac in it now with big bores. Would the alloy piggy back shocks be an up or down from the big bores ? I will use the alloy case in the slash. Also if I part it out completely - the rusty has a fiberglass chassis could I do a LCG slash with that . We only need 2 RC's (one for son , one for me ) and he has his stampede and have the slash . All said had the rusty for a bash today it's fast and fun , and saves the slash from bashing lol

    Integy will be a big step down from traxxas big bores, thats for sure. Integy goes in the same category with venom and redcat racing (junk). Traxxas big bores would be awesome, I'm sure.

    I decided to keep the big bores in the Slash - just installed the alloy transmission case ( the protrac rear tower was really tight on the case ) . I will keep the rustler for bashing around . Funny you say venom - I have a 8cell 5000 venom battery for the stampede and it is garbage compared to the 7 cell traxxas 3500 in runtime and little differrence in power .

    yep its a well known fact that venom batteries just plain stink.
    Traxxas ower cells are the best nimh I've used so far. They have great runtime and power.

    I like the idea of using the chassis for a lcg mod. Why not keep the truck as a spare and sell off the extra parts?

    I like venom lipo batteries. My 3s ran long and hard before it gave out on me and I'm in the process of getting it replaced under warranty for 50% off.
