We are getting pounded with snow here in WA. I live about 40miles south of Seattle, and its very unusual to get this amount of snow. About every 3 years we'll get snow like this... but its been crazy.
I learned that a 2WD ST really doesn't drive to well in snow..
The pond outside my house started to form ice over it. I kinda felt bad for the ducks, lol.
heres my truck after christmas:
my rustler with brushedmaxx2's hpi mt2
My Rusty .15
Don't laugh.. this is my first..
Original body, chassis and motor already cleaned.
The mess it was after cleaning
New Body no paint
Finished Paint and decals

this is my other rusty. It likes the mud as you can see.
This is where it goes down. My back yard.
Still needing some jumps.
hmmm the whole spare tranny isnt a bad idea!! since Indeed I already have busted many idler and top shaft gears... :S but not nearly as often as the crappy gears they put in the diffs... I'm sorta glad to hear that the ball diff did'nt work for you either since I did not want to start with it again! lol
Does anybody know of a company that makes stronger ones (planetary diff gears) for the Rusty??? or anybody know of another model's diff that could be a drop-in or that would require little modification??? I'm down with the idea of trying to goop it up some more like Powermann and the 500 000k oil but still... I was almost already there... so thats why I'm playing more with my Revo now. I'd rather have a Jato, but I just cant throw this beauty away!!
ok heres mine!!! [url]http://i1129.photobucket.com/albums/m502/dayngrus1/001.jpg[/url]

It may look like a Slash...
But its not. Its a Rustler.
Or as I like to call it, THE SLUTSLER!!!
My baby. Painted the body myself btw.
This is my first post so excuse if it's crazy.lol
With clothes on:
Annnd the reason why I can't run
Here's my $40 Rustler, had a .15 when I bought it now has a 2.5R.
[QUOTE=Shaggy101086;5000418]Hey Bill, I had a front wheel with the same crack going through it LOL. Brett, do you have any pics without the body? Looking good guys![/QUOTE]
Not really, I will get some. Here is my 2.5R, this was like 4 tanks after break in :wacko: I am known to be a little rough with my toys. My lhs let me have the case from a 2.5 that some one burnt up so I cleaned it up and swapped all my stuff over, runs like a champ.
