If you find yourself rolling your truck a lot while bashing, then I would recommend doing the upgrade. Otherwise, I probably wouldn't do it, as you are losing what makes the truck unique and that is...
I have personally used the STRC kit and it is an excellent investment. It completely changes the truck and makes it handle exponentially better. Definitely a great bang for the buck upgrade.
Now that is a find! Have fun with it!
Looks great Doc! It's been a while since I've seen anyone be this inventive with RC. Really enjoying it!
These are most likely new Slayer tires.
Looks great so far! Can't wait to see the finished product!
The new Pro-line bellcrank does, in fact, work with the old posts. Its a pretty simple install as far as I can tell. Supposed to be much smoother than a standard steering setup.
Parma also makes the X-Citer that is a direct fit for the Rustler.
Very nice paint job Pete! Nice to see you on the boards these days.
Very nice job! I've been a fan of Larry Minor's teams for a long time. Still remember when he was the owner of Gary Beck's car back in the 80's!
Those fins are optional luckily. No need to install them if you don't want to.
I have seen many new 550 brushless motors popping up on the market. Are they really necessary for a 2WD Slash? I can see needing them for a 4WD due to all of the extra drivetrain, but what would it...
Very nice cooleo! That was a very cool project. I remember the last overhaul. It's nice to see her all cleaned up and ready for the summer months!
Yea any parts from an older Bandit, Rustler, or Stampede should fit on a newer version of that model. The only things that have really changed are the slipper clutches.
I would personally get individual bearings from avidrc.com. They have great bearings for cheaper than the Duratrax sets.
These wheels will fit on the Rustler, but your rear end will be wider than the front. You will need Nitro Rustler or Slash rear A-arms for the wheels to be flush.
Without modification these rims will not fit on the Rustler.
Sounds like you either need a new servo saver or a new servo. Check the screw holding the servo saver on to make sure it is in all the way.
A good setup for a race Rustler would be:
LCG Chassis - Xtreme Racing, etc.
Aluminum Shock Caps
Slash Rear Suspension Arms
Front rims for the rear
Whatever tires are hot at your track.
You'll need Slash bumpers, rear A-arms and links, wheels, tires, body mounts, and body.
My personal favorite wheels are RPM Slingshots. They are 2.2 sized and have offsets specifically for the Rustler. I love the fact that they can be dyed any color you want and hold up to lots of...
Xtreme RC also has nice G10 chassis for the Rustler. Its around the same price point as well. Here is the link:
I personally don't think they will ever make a 4WD Rustler. It's not really needed. Other's have tried 4WD stadium trucks and they didn't fare very well i.e. HPI with the RS4 MT. There just isn't...
Yes you did indeed mess it up. If you have no experience soldering, I would recommend picking up a new receiver.
