FOR ALL OF YOU LOOKING FOR UPGRADES FOR YOUR MUSTANG
Long awaited explanation and pics of the build!
this car clocked at 69 MPH!!!
here you go....
This is what I have done to my car so far....
first and foremost, I have found some wheels/tires (WIDER) and do fit under the body!!! only two wheel options, but I can look past the wheels for the extra rubber!!
the car comes stock with 1.9x26mm wheels... after LONG AND HARD shopping for some wheels/tires.... I found some! 1.9x31mm !! that is 20mm more of rubber which is approx 8/10 of an inch more of rubber!! and still work with the factory 12mm hex! cannot go wrong... although, I did have to raise the body mounts up one knotch for front and back, and trim the slightest amount off the body in the fenders for wheel turn... and it was so minor amount you wouldnt be able to tell... if you dont want to trim... you can put 31mm in back and stock 26mm size wheels upfront... only reason for trimming the front was to clear turning radius... I have the correct offset for the wheels as well... read below to see what upgrades I have done....
Also, put a dual servo in as well... after these pics were taken.... (very last pic in next post represents dual servo)

FLYSKY FS-GT3B controller
most of this stuff is for a summit....fyi....
but as far as suspension goes... HOLY WOW!!!!!!!!! did the upgrades make a difference!!!!
not only did I upgrade motor, and ESC, to a 5200kv and ESC (both speed passion) run with 2x2's or 2x3's in parallel
but the upgrades on the suspension are HUGE AND A MUST!!!
most slash/e-revo and summit stuff will work.. but be careful with front skid plates and a-arms e-revo has longer a-arms, and the mustang is sort of unique with the front skid plate...
but you can get upgrades from lots of places that are posted above... but nothing (as of now) are listed for the mustang... all listed for e-revo, summit, rally...
Hope this helped... please let me know if you guys want some info or not on any of this...
