    Here are a few pics of my new Rustler XL5 brushed.

    Brand new after being unboxed:


    After a fun day in the rain/in the dirt:






    I added an RPM front bumper after reading some necessary upgrade threads. I plan on getting some Traxxas aluminum caster blocks at some point, too (though I may wait for the stock ones to break first).

    Love this truck! It's my next step into the hobby from a Losi Micro-T 1/36 truck.

    Well here she is. Not much left that's stock on this one. I'm kinda stoked that I might actually get to race it later this summer/fall. The local track is adding a 2wd Stadium Truck class finally

    Nice!

    Are those Proline Gladiators on the back? I'm looking into some better off road tires for the rear. I've got some Bow Ties on there right now, but they wear down pretty quick.

    It may not be the prettiest Bandit out there, but she's fast. These pics are pretty recent, but before my new tires and motor came.
    Its running Pro-lineStreet Hawg II's on 2.2" RPM Revolver rims on the back, Anaconda's on stock rims up front with a Losi 8ight 3.0 spoiler. An 18/56 ratio steel slipper/pinion gear set from HotRacing and an electrifly 550 brushed powered by a Dynamic 5000mah 2s LiPo!

    I have the Rustler VXL Kawasaki edition. Love it! All stock right now except for front bumper. This was a gift for my 3 y/o son from his uncle who works for a Kawasaki dealership, but really its for dad



    We have an extra body painted in a ChromaFlair type paint so it changes colors in the sunlight

    Hello all. New guy here. Not only to the site, but the hobby as well. With that being said I hope I can learn from all of you. But enough with my cheesy introduction. I'll let my rusty do the talking. It's mostly stock but I've added a couple of things since I got it (week ago today).

    Bone stock, about 6hrs old. This is my first RC car I've ever had and I'm pretty stoked to start modding the crap out of this thing.

    I have had this for a couple of weeks now.
    I traded some VW parts for it and then fixed him up.
    This is what I picked up as a roller...

    It needed a new idler gear, as the plastic one was half stripped.
    So it got a whole new metal gearset and works like a champ!

    This is what it looked like after my son swiped the bigger tires and wheels off it and put on his stock Slash set...


    Then I found a better set of tires...


    This is how it now looks after last night...


    I put a stock brushless set up into it from another manufacturer as it was the right price and it now flys around the yard!

    Finally got some paint on my new shell. Tamiya PS-5 paint. I also shot the stock Alias rims, see how long the paint holds up on them, not long I don't suspect. Anyhow, love how the car looks at the moment.

    Quick update! I found a cheap $20 RC at GoodWill with a killer XK body, some small mods and it should fit perfectly! Can't wait to get the light kit for it!

    Why do I have all these leftover parts???

    Just picked this up over the weekend. New brushless system and 2.4 system, brand new wheelie bar, and an Extra set of tires/wheels and a lipo battery for $100. My goal is to make one good one out of the two I own and keep the extra parts for spares 😄
