    Gitten er done!!

    Well, I'm just about finished with this nitro killer, started off as a Rustler VXL, well, it still is, but with just about every upgrade I could find except for the chassis. still havent decided on that, aluminum or composite?
    Got an easy thousand into it already not counting my MaxAmps gear.
    I'm the worst in the world.

    Well I have saved my pennies and have a drag rusty coming in soon....lotsa plastic lol.....so that meant i will finish out the FLM Build with the almighty talked about trans case....should be here anyday ....ill post pics when that project is installed..

    For now I made it by a hobby store today and got the Big Bores all the way around.....

    also found a set of dual rate shocks ...these were badly needed to the added weight in the rear and i know that more of that is coming with the trans....60weight oil again with the dual rate in rear...and trinity's xtra stiff in the front...anyway here is some pics...sorry for the blabbing

    After a crash that made my brushless Rustler undrivable for a while , I finally rebuilt and upgraded it some more. I never did post any pictures in the gallery so here they are.

    Main Upgrades:
    MM ESC
    MM 7700 Motor
    RPM Front Bumper, A-Arms, and Caster Blocks
    T-Bone Racing Rear Bumper
    Aluminum Shock Caps
    Steel Idler
    And many, many replacement parts and gears


    The aftermath of the wreck:


    After rebuild (and repaint):




    My Rusty drives on 2 wheels...am I a evolutionist?

    I built this Bandit from scratch last week, with parts I bought on eBay... Has a Titan 12T motor and a XL-5 ESC, but everything else was built with VXL parts... Someday I'll buy a Velineon for it...
