The Life of my lexan Rustler
A couple differnt bodies that have been on the rustler.
After the stock chassis broke. I made a chassis out of 1/4" lexan. That eventually broke at the same spot as the stock chassis did. This chassis was made from 3/8" lexan. Upper deck and shock tower are from 1/4" lexan.
More mods. To keep the strength of the 3/8" and not the weight. Routed out the bottom of the chassis with a design to lose a couple of ounces. Added an Integy alum bulkhead.
Next on the list was some extended arms. I made some for the f/r that were pretty straight forward. The arms in the picture were the last ones I made. Tried a different design with the jagged edges. They were made from 3/8" lexan also.
The addition of the FLM transmission case.
A rear arm broke in 10 degree weather. Replaced the rear arms w/ FLM ext arms. Replaced the HB shocks with Big bores and the addition of an Integy transmission case.
The stampede will benifit more from the extended arms. So it got the blue set up and the rustler got the red set up.
This is how it's set up at the time of this post.
FLM tranny w/ vxl gears, towers, and standard F/R arms
Big bores shocks w/ Fullforce RC dual rate spring, Bad Horsie covers
MM7700, Dual ESC fans, Can Fan
