    If you are talking about this hole. Yeah I couldn't fit the screw in. But I'm not sure it matters too much because if I try to move the motor around it doesn't budge at all.

    What I'm saying is the slipper needs to not move in order for it to tighten. I can't hold the slipper for it to tighten. Thanks

    Im not to fond of having the motor held by just one screw with ALL that power. Its got ALOT of torque, and I see a disaster happening in this scenario. BUT.... after I wrote u, and was uploading pics, I saw this.... as seen in my pic, there is that hole inside where the motor shaft is. I put a screw there, and it worked. Two screws clamping.... Tried moving the motor, and still not going anywhere. However I am still not happy with it, and I am gonna get a cardite dremel bit, to expand the hole. Dont want a catastophy to happen and the motor going flying off.

    Your talking about this hole right?

    And also I got that bottom screw in but the gears are very (lemme put it this way) TIGHT. As in I can just about get them together. Does it matter if they are very tight together. Will this cause stripping or something? AbSoLooT1, I think you need to dremel it out because of the gears you are using. You have a 1:1 34:34, while I'm running 30:34. So I guess I have a little more room.

    Ooo Nitro, NICe body... Looks SICK!

    But hey, I did it! It took like an 1 and a half, and it was likean inch to grind away, Wierd, my hole was way farther than in ur pic. But makes since, since ur using 30. It looked like a 34... Ud only have to grind alittle bit. Would take ya like 15 minutes tops., and cost ya 11 bucks for the bit. Anyways, Here is the finished product....






    The bit I used


    They had a 9903 that was bigger, This one was the right size....


    And ya, That was the hole I was talking about... I might do this, Than it has protection from going forwards or backwards, cuz right where I gotta mount, the bottom slide hole goes back to, and this would help it sliding forward at all. Doesnt look as clean though, except for it being coveredby the gear of course. Pain in the tail, but well worth it to make sure nothing bad happens to the motor.



    Im happy to have this done, and it nice and secure however.

    But this is your thread... Ur Rusty looks FANTASTIC! Would love to see some more pics of the inside done, and all .. With some green inside... WOOOO Buddy... Lookin GREAT! one of the top Rustys for sure.!!!!

    U know, I found that what lug nut u use, makes all the difference in the world. After trying more than 8 differnt types/brands. the losi ones flowthe smoothest, and u dont need to do more than put a finger on the slipper instead of havin to stop the axles from moving... Once I figured that out, I put em on all my vehicles. Its the black one on my slipper in the pic.. Its a Losi 4mm Flanged Lock nut.

    Also, Make sure to have ur tires on, and bolted, than take the Traxxas wrench, and u can tighten it that way, in the mean time. But ul need to do it with the wheels and tires on. If it still doesnt work, its ur lock nut, and u gotta change it... But m99% of em will work with the wheels on, and a finger on the spur while u tighten it.

    Okay thanks. I didn't have the wheels on so that probably was the problem. Thanks and I'll go try and do it now

    Thanks yea I'm Just about done except for some slight gearing modifications. I'll be posting pics and vids of my first run. Will most likely be on 3s then 4s then 6s. Takin in slow first to get the hang of it. I never had a rustler before let alone one with a mamba monster lol.

    Hey guys I got my gears together but want to ask if they look okay.

    Should they be closer?
    Also it makes a LOT of noise. The clinking of metal I'm guessing is why. Is it normal for metal gears to be reallyyyy loud? Thanks in advance

    Mesh looks about right. Maybe a tiny bit tighter but I think it's good where it's at.

    Yes they are foam. They are very good for a stock rustler vxl and for speed runs. I'm not so sure how they will be at 90+ mph but I'm sure I will soon find out. There have been great reviews about them for the stock rusty on 3s and lower. And welcome to RC btw! It's a great hobby and I'm sure you will love it! Most traxxas guys on here are very welcoming!

    Doesn't Jaco offer different foam compounds? If so which would be best for asphalt?

    You should have the 2030 or 2030LP in front (purple) in front, and the 2050 or 2050LP (pink) in the rear. Rear compound is a little bit softer.

    I have the 2040LP in the rear same compound (pink) they just don't have the cover in the middle. They are exactly the same.

    Found a real nice parking lot in the local train station where I can do some speed runs. Im gonna wait till the weekend to do that when there are little to no cars in the lot. It's a realllllyyy long stretch of asphalt/concrete so I'm very happy. I'Il be taking a vid (or someone else will) and I'll post it on this thread if anyone wants to see. Thanks

    Thank you Desert Jato. I have a question regarding my gyro. When my rusty turns on, connected to a 3s lipo the wheels rattle/shake back and forth. I'm wondering why this is? Any thoughts? Thanks

    i really have no idea about this since i didn't use a gyro before .
    it could be a radio glitch maybe ? i'm not sure. try putting in a glitch eleminator and check although it could be no easy to hook it if there's no empty channel on your radio.

    The glitch went away lol. I turned it on and the wheels were not moving at all so that's good.

    May not be the prettiest job but who cares. I had to remove part of the side because my 3s batteries' wires come out the side

    Well, the gyro could be shaking because the sensitivity is to high, which isnt good at high speeds. That is if you can change the sensitivity. Anyways nice job. I also removed my battery wall because my 3s was pretty tall.

    I just put in the stock gears from the original tranny case. Works perfectly. You don't need to touch the clutch just go with 30/34 gearing or 34/34 gearing. Around that area is perfect speed run gearing.

    Haha thanks and the a-arms are just the regular RPM a-arms. And I'm not sure about a good bash/speed gearing setup since most people with this 2200kv setup don't wanna do bashing. Maybe like 24/34 or something like that. In my opinion, I would stick with/get the Velineon for bash/speed. The mamba monster is already way too powerful for a little Rusty and bashing might not be such a good idea. But people say that using this motor in general is a horrible idea so if you wanna bash be my guest. You should start a thread or post some pics of your build as well. I'd love to see it!
