    That link is a replacement wheel for your TRANSMITTER, not for you car. You can lower you car for example by tilting your shocks to maximum, using shorter springs, using low profile tires, limiting your shock travel (fuel tube piece to piston rod).

    I am using these but they are only little bit lower than stock:

    If you want to lower your car more you should try those other methods I mentioned.

    As I mentioned by tilting your shocks to maximum (install shock end to the most outer position in you A-arms), using shorter springs and limiting your shock travel (fuel tube piece to piston rod).

    Here is the list of shorter springs:

    I do not know if this link works about "fuel tube mod" but if not use search in Youtube:

    Take out your shock spacers, that'll drop the car down some.

    I'd love to see a rustler running with four of the wheels for the controller. . It'd look like tricked out go-kart tires on a sports car.

    Anyways, a little thing you can do to lower the rear of the body a little is to use the lower pin holes on the rear carriers. It'll drop the body by a half-centimeter or so.

    A kind of ghetto cheepie way to do it is get acouple zipties and ziptie the springs down. I do that when making high speed passes.

    Yes, use the methods that have already been mentioned. For tires, look at the 2.2" street tires, I lowered mine using the fuel line method.
