Hey guys I have been meaning to do this build thread for a long time now and my rustler has transformed many times over.
Rpm front an rear arms
Rpm front and rear bearing carriers
Rpm front and rear shock towers
Modified slash bumper
Traxxas big bores
Slash 4x4 driveshafts
Full ball bearings
Had rpm tranny but hated it
CC Mamba Max Pro
CC 3800 kV 4 pole motor
Jconcepts rulux wheels
Pro line 2.8 glads
Trx front ribbed tires
*waiting for wheels and tires to come, I will update thread often.*
Please feel free to comment and ask questions as well as share your builds and ideas.
Here's some more eye candy
Wow I wish I had the money right now to do this haha
UPDATE: Once I beat up on this body for a while I am going to make this rustler into a truggy. I plan on using rpm front and rear adjustable body mounts for the slash and stampede and I am going to mount this badboy up...
WHY: because the bulldog body for the rustler looks like its been stretched to fit the rustler while the one for the pede looks like a true truggy body.
I will paint it charcoal gray with CC yellow something, I don't know yet. 😝
Really I have to disagree. I dont think that Pede Bull dog looks like a Truggy. IMO the Bulldog body built for the Rustler looks much more Truggy like. Here is mine oddly enough mounted on a Pede 4x4WHY: because the bulldog body for the rustler looks like its been stretched to fit the rustler while the one for the pede looks like a true truggy body.

Ah I've read many threads with your truggy pede dad, I admire the work you did on that pede . I find the molding in the body for the shock tower un-truggy, also keep in mind that with the rpm body mounts the stampede body will be slammed as far as it will go.
UPDATE: Once I wear out my 2.8 gladiators I'm going to get the big joes 2 2.2 pro line just released for the savage xs... These things are huge they aren't as big as 2.8 trenchers but are bigger than the stock 2.8 wheels n tires, now only if prolinbne would make badlands in this size
2.8 gladiator height: 4.16"
2.8 alias height: 4.06" I think
2.2 big Joe 2 height: around 4.36"
UPDATE: Today I installed slash rpm rear a-arms and titanium turnbuckles to run front offset and get a little bit of toe-in.
UPDATE: MMP burned last ween and I got it sent in to castle it should be home within the next week, other than that anybody have any good. Upgrades or ideas for my rustler?
