Wow that truck looks awesome, great work.
Ah, I've never bashed in cold weather. That makes sense that the absurd temperature made the parts brittle.
What are you doing when you drive it haha. That's absolutely crazy to break all those things.
Just remember track time with a truck with a stock setup (or any other setup as long as the adjustments aren't crazy) is going to do a lot more good than a perfectly set up truck and very little...
Tires tires tires. Besides that lots of practice and as long as your shocks are working you should do well.
Why would Traxxas sell something that isn't strong? The stock plastic shocks simply are very strong with the race proven design.
Again the Traxxas shocks are very strong when built correctly.
But the Traxxas shocks are much better quality than the Yeah racing shocks.
Stock 12t or VXL, other motors aren't worth looking at.
How are you getting oil on the chassis and body?
The stock shocks are very good, they just need a proper rebuild every now and then to keep them from falling apart like you are describing. They don't leak unless the o-rings get ripped or stretched...
I have a FLM case and it's great, but the stock case is plenty great and very strong.
Get a shock rebuild kit and learn to do it properly, it will save you a lot of money in the long run. Plus the stock shocks are amazing, just not as amazing as the big bores.
Why would it last longer?
Get a new stock roll bar, nothing beats stock.
What are you talking about? The Rustler is an incredibly tough truck, if it wasn't Traxxas wouldn't be selling it. They only sell the toughest trucks around.
Stock is the best option, Traxxas had jumping in mind when they designed the mounts and plastic mounts were found to be the best and strongest option, that's why they used them over aluminum or...
Traxxas 2075 is the best servo ever made, so far at least.
Speed control, duratrax Streak 12t limit, $35
bearing carriers from whoever and you might as well upgrade the links as well, I think those run about $20 as a set
also you might want to do...
Who makes the adapters that everyone is using?
That thing looks bad. you really need to take your time when cutting the chassis. Also I don't thin you should have cut so much off. It's looking way too flimsy.
How many of you break the stock plastic camber links?
Do you have some more pictures of that chassis. I made a few lexan chassis a while back and that looks exactly like one of the ones I made. weird
I would do it the way he did it. If you need specifics on it you can always e-mail him.
This page has pictures of just about everything that you will be cutting. http://ultimatetraxxas.com/projects/ultimate-rustler/project-07.php
Also if you read it, it tells all the parts he used....
