    Those original black rod ends might even be harder to find than the white ones. Good luck! Can't wait to see the finished product!

    I think it's the same for the white ones, #1742... The white ones on eBay are the short version for the Bullet...

    You definitely do not see very many of those! Razer had/has one and I saw one on eBay years ago (they wanted over $100 for it--too much in my opinion!).

    I'm looking forward to seeing the end result.

    There's one on eBay right now but it's missing the fiberglass battery hold downs... Mine took like 6 months to get it, I had to talk the seller into selling it to me and finally got it for a little over $100 shipped... I gathered all the parts to build it, but I was missing the chassis and the rod ends until now... Also, I got a set of black RPM front and rear a-arms which looks very nice, I'll post some pictures tonight when I get home...

    Hmmm,I've had more or less the same idea in the works for over a year,even picked up black dye for the project last summer. But I never knew that there was a black race chassis available for the Bullet.

    I was just planning on painting my alloy chassis[hide all the previous scratches and to cover the JB Weld I used to repair the two holes I drilled in the wrong place by mistake]

    That way it would be more like a Rad 2[Bullet 2]

    Yes, 5 on one side and 3 on the other according to the instruction sheet, I'll post it tomorrow from work...

    But, I'm not going to put electronics on this one... Just a roller...

    Hmmm... Your motor looked nice on the Bullet, and I have a 2018 servo and 2015 receiver with silver labels I can use on this one...

    Hey Daniel,

    Should be a cool build forsure

    Funny thing, Do you remember the large parts lot I had a few years back, and then sold most of it to John (CRUNCHY550) on ebay?

    Well the dude I originally got those parts from, I'm pretty sure he had 3-4 of those chassis's NIB

    Is it part number 4601?

    This is how it looks today...

    Front...


    Rear...


    Top...


    I misplaced the differential so that's why the motor mount is not installed...

    I was going to use white rims, didn't like it, tried the silver stock ones, the same, and I really like the pink ones...

    Hope you like it so far...

    Lookin good there Daniel!

    Somethin about those original 1770-71's Traxxas buggy tires I have always loved, If I'm not mistaking those were first run stock on the Rad/Rad-2, and they also came stock on the first edition Bandits.

    The pink rims really set it off dude, Gotta love that retro black/pink combo

    Kinda got me curious if I can still snag those chassis from the fella that had them a couple years back

    Hey Guys,

    I'm missing one of these, they go inside the steering bellcranks... It's like a bushing...



    If anyone has one or could think of a replacement, let me know...

    Thanks!

    Daniel.

    I tried that one too, but it's not the same, needs some work, I'll post a pic to show the difference...

    Oh Man, that looks even better than I thought it would!! Awesome work, as always Daniel!


    And thank you for helping me to decide if I should do mine or not. I'm definitely dying my Bullet 2 parts black and painting the alloy chassis to match.

    I'll finish the Bullet this weekend, I got everyting I need now!
