    Finally! I can have my cake and eat it too!

    Well you vintage guys. After a couple years of searching and had the cash available I picked up a Traxxas SRT! Harry how long have I been asking for one even order to buy yours? lol. The guy is on vacation so I'll have to wait until memorial day before it ships. I pay a huge...$75 shipped for a roller and a spare chassis. He said both chassis are in great shape with little scratches(which can probably be polished out) on the bottom but that's ok b/c I'm going to use the truck. The roller has zero issues and the transmission is original and flawless(tested it with his VXL system). He also said there are some of extra wheels and tires that are from the original kit which if I'm not mistaken are hard to find. All she needs is alittle TLC and good to go. What great is I have a old school nitro sport body I'll use for her. This the best truck ever made and probably even a better racer. I wish everyone can experience old school Traxxas vehicles like this b/c you're definitely missing out. Here the link

    Already talked to the guy and payed him lol so Harry how did you not see this deal???

    Now as for parts, alot of the nitro sport/rustler will fit on her no problem correct? Looking at getting some carbon fiber towers from the nitros. Is it possible to get a carbon fiber upper deck still? If not is there anyone on this forum that can fabricate parts? I'll so need the part numbers for the servo mounts and gear cover. Aside from that this isn't going to be bashed like a rustler but she isn't going to be a shelf queen either.

    Ok so Fiber-lyte is still in business?? Sweet. I guessing the gear cover from a slash will work on the SRT? I have seen all your vintage videos. I'm jealous of you LOL. Thinking of getting a another Tekin Rs Pro for this baby.

    Hahaha, thanks! As far as I know, Fiber-lyte is still in business, they replied to my emails last year.

    The gear cover will work, it's not exactly the same, but it fits, check here for a few pictures:

    Ok cool. I'm not looking for a complete vintage for the dust cover just something that fits and works(probably get the rpm one). Now what about the rear shock tower bulkhead mount? The part number is 1992 but thats discontinued. Doesn't the one from the nitros work?

    No, the one from the nitros is shorter, but #1992 (white) is available on eBay...

    OK sweet. That's not a common part to break correct? The spare chassis comes with one. Just like to stock up on parts that are discontinued. I'm sorry for all the question I'm just excited I finally have a awesome piece of Traxxas history.

    never broke a stock bulk yet....



    welcome to the club bud.

    a word of advice, those rod ends are not great. i went with ae and losi 4-40 ball studs and rpm rod ends. best way to go imo.


    the newer gear covers will all fit but they dont seal, about 5 minutes with a dremal or even an exacto knife will make it sit flush though.

    are you going to beef up the gearbox and what slipper/layshaft? im going to drop the strc associated setups into my 272 boxes eventually. also maybe swap out the bell crank for a servo saver type.


    if you want to make the trip im right near the edge of delray (on the boca side ) ill glady show you how i set mine up in person.

    OK SRT. When I get the truck we can met up. As for the transmission. I was gming to see how she looks before I decide. I.can always use a brush motor. And the gear cover. What exactly doesn't fit? Was the original clear or black?

    The bulkhead from the nitro will work, but requires a shim. There's an old thread around here somewhere with details. I'll see if I can dig it up again. It's rare that the stock bulkheads break, but I have seen a couple that break around the screw holes that attach it to the chassis.
