its been a while since I have visited here, but here is my newest body I did for my Rustler
David "Hijak" Holden
upgrades (that I remember)
Castle Sidewinder SV2/4600 4 pole

1st run with sidewinder: pinion set screw came out after 10 min
2nd run: Something stripped in transmission after 2 min.

Died chassis. shocks, and bumper. Going to do the rest soon.
my red vxl
first body mod
My dad's been converted to vxl
our rusty's together
this is my new xl5 titan 12t powered stadium truck
My wife made me do some organizing yesterday:
I didn't realize I have so many controllers:
Nitro Rustler, Rustler HW Brushless Motor, ESC
Just my two Rustlers. Both VXL, one for racing, and one for bashing!
Of course this is a Bandit XL-5 but here's the skinny;
All VXL turnbuckles
RPM bumpers front/rear
Proline dirthawgs II
Screened vents in body
4mm gold motor connectors
Speed Gems Pro Titanite 15T Double Brushed
******* 2S 5200mAh 25C Lipo
24 Pinion/90 Spur
Even with the low gearing it's fast compared to out of the box. I also heat shrinked the antenna wire to the mast.

couldnt find a bandit body yet, so I picked up this body off ebay for $1.30 and modded to fit, kinda. Also added hpi hellfire wing and mount
Update... The wheels are a few shades darker in real life.
I used a rattle can to cover the nylon and chrome. We'll see how long it lasts.
