    Hey everyone, I just finished re building my rusty after completely taking in apart and dying everything black and "anodizing" two parts. Check it out! tell me what you think. And for a thirteen year old, I think I did pretty darn good!

    Make sure after runs in wet conditions you clean the car off, lubricate the bearings, and maybe put some wd-40 on the screws. From the looks of it, you have some rust on the screws or its just the lighting. Nice truck though.

    That looks awesome man!
    I am 13 too and have a rustler almost the exact same as yours (minus the big bores)
    I have dyed only a few parts but when my transmission needs cleaning I will take apart virtually the whole car, clean it, dye it and use stainless steel screwz to build it back up. I would say trenches for some rear off roaders I had the same question about offroad tires and found my answers by searching on the traxxas forum threads or on goolge
