What up all, I have been a proud Stampede owner for quiet some time, but like many I too have the speed bug, So I started building the ol Rustler.
With my Style I like to stick it on the street the way I like it already, Instead of buying, driving-breaking, upgrading. For this I typically start with buying upgraded parts, and put the vehicle together from scratch. Havent bought a whole build kit in a long time, or even a Roller.
So here it is... Start with the Parts I have, which is most of what I need and want. few things left, An Alum rear tower, Alum Tranny, Alum Castor, and front carriers and the rest is there. Oh and the Electronics and 2 3c batterys I will run.
Also will swop the current mock-up servo for a highspeed Savox, or JR. (suggestions are welcome)
I too am gonna be aiming for a 100mph goal, Il start with the MM 2400 KV set-up, and after a bit save it for a ERBE, than put something more mild in the Rusty.
Even though I am aiming for the 3 digits, If I hit 90ish or so with the weight of aluminum I have on this rig, I will be cool with it. I am building it to stay the way it is, which is just a speed Rusty, if my set-up doesnt allow me to hit 3 digits (which im sure it will) il still be happy with a bit lower number, as it will still be the fastest in my neck of the woods
Last but not least, The pics. Most of the parts that I have gathered, in mid build. I will keep updating as she and progress gets along, and post. Since winter is here, its a good season to bust out the builds, dontcha think?
Parts all laid out.
Closer look at individual parts.
