As a rule, no. Don't get crazy though, and always remember to watch your temps, especially if you're running in grass.
The protrac kit is greatness, man. It makes the truck more stable and gives the rear end some toe in.
I love the Proline Bow-ties. They're SC tires though.

The rustler is a great truck. Very easy to work on and parts are readily available.

I run short course wheels with Proline Bowties. Love them!
Very MadMax. I dig it.

X2 on the slipper clutch. I also took clips off the rear springs. Mine wheelies on concrete but not off road now.

I love mine. Sometimes I wish I had more tuning options, but it's plenty fast.

I've never stripped a hex in 5 years, but maybe I'm lucky?

The protrac rear arms are great for toe in. Really straightened my car out.
You can find receivers for cheap on ebay.
I've seen a couple of guys at the track running rustys that are competitive. You have to be a better driver, but it could happen. My experience is that once guys get that good and experienced, they...
I've become a big fan on the proline shock towers that came with my protrac kit. Stiffer than stock but not so stiff as aluminum.
Sweet. Good find, man.
Looks like STRC is out of all the LCG kits right now. Does anyone know if that's a temporary thing, or is there something else going on?
I'm working on rebuilding an old Frog and installed an xl5 with an Orion motor plus my total qualifier radio. It's awesome fast with a 4200 mah traxxas 7 cell hump pack.
I had the same problems. Turns out I was relying on the included hexes to get the motor good and tight, but I couldn't do it. I invested in some nice hex drivers, and I'm cooking with gas now.
I'm never one to shy away from rebuilds, so I'd go for it. Depending on how old it is, you'll have to switch out the plastic gears for metal ones (which is what I had to do) or maybe even put in a...
That piece of advice has helped me regain interest in my rusty again. I was extremely annoyed by all the wheelies. I backed off the slipper and it runs fairly planted now.
Glad your truck is working. Did resetting it do the trick?

I've found that using dropbox is great for hosting pictures on this site.
That tranny upgrade is not hard, but rhardy is right. You'll want to upgrade to the metal gears in the tranny.
