    Finally building my own (truggy) P4de!

    I have been debating on what to do with all the extra slash 4x4 parts I have and after the release of the Proline Bulldog truggy body for the rustler I knew what I wanted to do. Then, seeing All Aluminum's thread I was further inspired and now it is time to start thinking about my build. I get off work on Wednesday (I work offshore) for two weeks and I will order the extra parts I need on Friday. I plan on using this truck for all around bashing and I will be taking it to track outings as well. I just got my order in of 4 Gens Ace 50c 5000mah 2s and 4 40c 5000mah 3s batteries in so I'm excited to try them out. So far I have these items in my slash 4x4 box and will be using them in my build:

    X0-1 cvd's, 17mm adapters, wheels
    X0-1 carriers, knuckles and caster blocks
    various Suprasells buggy wheels
    rear hpi Vorza shocks
    rpm shock towers
    rpm front bumper
    front and rear diffs
    camber and toe links
    sway bars
    Kings Headz motor mount
    strc motor plate
    FLM aluminum center diff cup
    hardened steel 49t spur gear
    Castle 1410 3800 w/fan
    Mamba Max Pro
    glitch buster


    These are the items that I need to order. If there are any suggestions feel free to let me know since I won't be ordering this stuff until Friday. I would like some input on what servo I should go with. I would like metal gears and not have to use an external bec.

    Proline Bulldog truggy body for Rustler
    Losi Ten-T wing and wing mount
    Snappy MMP mount
    Stampede chassis, center shaft, font bumper and skid plate
    Vorza front shocks
    Kyosho retainer cups
    Hot Bodies rear shock ends

    The part that I'm undecided on is the arms. I want to do metal arms because I have bent the X0-1 cvd's while running rpm arms. I don't want to run protrac. My options are:

    FLM front and rear (excellent warranty)
    http://www.fastlanemachine.net/prodd...LM26600&cat=34
    SSC extended wheelbase rear with FLM front (has to be good!)
    http://www.ssclcg.com/index.php?main...products_id=87
    TRCE front and rear (I had their original style and bent them pretty easily from torque but I've heard the newer ones are much beefier.) If I go this route, I will be able to have rear mounted shocks.
    http://t-rce.com/shop.html#ecwid:cat...roduct=5421533

    I would appreciate input on the arms and servo selection and anything else really as well. I'm really looking forward to this build!

    Nice! The XO-1 parts are going to be sick, I wanted to go that route but it doesn't stretch to fit the Protrac suspension. Add some dye to your list and black out that chassis.

    Edit: The FLM center diff upgrade is a must to keep the front end down on 3s.

    and I'm not running the protrac so that I can use the x0-1 gear! Rit dye will definitely be happening! I think I ran my Sl4sh's with a slipper for maybe two minutes before I switched to the center diffs. I love the difference they made

    I got some news and I'll be staying at work on the boat for two more week so the build won't start till the 24th. I may be tempted to spend more money on this build since I'll be coming home with more money.

    Are the XO-1 axles worth it? I was going to go that route but read that they tend to bend if you bash too hard.

    You should be happy with the batteries. I have 4 of that exact 2s and 2 of that exact 3s. The 2s don't even warm up in my ERBE.

    A truggy body will definitely set that off!

    I have personally bent an X0-1 cvd but I have four replacement bones for backup. That is why I will be using metal arms..I still need to figure out which ones I want to use.

    I've made some progress on the build. I have most of the truck together and the body is painted. I de annodized most of the aluminum. I'd like to go back and polish everything but no time at the present.
