    Hey, I'm not saying the Rustler was an advance in technology....all I am saying is the Rustler took the place of the SRT; sometimes "evolution" takes a few steps back, Jack!

    In this case, when Traxxas got out of the "race scene", everything got simpler...one piece molded chassis, integrated rear arm mounts, integrated motor plate/guard, simple steering.....limited tuning.....limited "awesome-ness"! All in the name of $$. Simplify product, cut cost. But you already know this.

    Rustler and SRT are the same width as they fall under Roar rules.

    Are they? I thought the SRT was like 1/2" wider. It always looked it.

    On a related note. Tower lists the stock SRT front arms (2531) as being 3.0" wide...but lists the RPM ones as 3.1" wide. Can anyone confirm the RPM ones are wider?

    Also, just measured my SRT at 12.5"....Traxxas says the Rustler is 12.25". Roar approves 13".

    But the bottom line is, will the SRT body be reproduced by TBG or not?!?! LOL

    Yes I'll contact them this week haha. As for the SRT and Rustler. The official measurement is Width: SRT 314mm Rustler VXL 311mm , Length SRT 446mm Rustler VXL 445mm, Wheelbase: SRT 288mm Rustler VXL 289mm. They are very close and I believe when comparing both with the same setup they are even closer.

    You have an avatar for Pete's sake! You have a ton of vintage stuff! I'd say you aren't the most popular, but you are one of the coolest.
    And there he goes with the carbon...

    Sitting on a shelf unused is certainly a death sentence--these vehicles were meant to be driven!

    cooleocool, you just spoke my words. I hate "shelf queens". These are finely engineered quality racing machines!

    ....AND, you become way cool when you beat the little kids on the track driving their new high tech "whips" with a 20 year old lock of plastic! MUAHAHAHA!! (evil laugh)

    Agreed. But I believe that there are some that are too nice all these years later to run them. If I have a vintage ride that I feel guilty about running, I try to find one in worse condition to put on the track.



    Too nice:



    Way too nice:



    Perfect runner:

    My SRT runner is too nice to run...but it collecting dust doesn't do it justice. It's so cool watching a SRT run. Now my NIB TCP will stay on the shelf.
