So I’ve been planning to do a build for a while and finally decided on a Rusty, probably because I had a good donor truck waiting to be built up. I also had a few extra parts sitting around the garage but had to order a bunch of stuff.
Parts for the Build:
Set of E-revo tires I never used on my Revo
Golden Horizon’s aluminum transmission – I want to see what all the hub-bub is about
Traxxas Big Bores!!! After all these years, I have yet to use a set of these
Jato 32p spur gear and pinions – I really like the reliability of this setup.
T-bone front bumper and wheelie bar – I’ve never used their products and want to try ‘em out
SPC 3s lipo – ditto – never tried their 3s lipo’s
Viper VX4 Copperhead 550 esc/motor – I’m a huge fan of SquidRC reviews and they really like this setup.
Dyed black chassis – thankfully done by the PO so I don’t have to.
Custom body painted by a forum member – a deal is in the works for him to paint up a body for me, and he’s going to do True Flame paint.
Now some pics of the bare bones Rusty:
And a few of the Golden Horizons aluminum transmission case:
DuBro body clip retainers!!!
