    For the Hobbywing ESC in this truck, I purchased the programming card for $11 to adjust the settings. It can also be adjusted with a button by the on/off switch, but the card is so much easier, and...

    Hey Synnergy. Well, you are correct - still haven't made it to the track with these trucks yet. I can't tell you how much I miss having an indoor track close by. My time is very limited, as are my...
  3. Sounds like some good progress. The pieces you...

    Sounds like some good progress. The pieces you have coming will certainly add some strength and performance to your setup, which should help you break that 17 second mark. I look forward to seeing...

    Hey Synnergy - Thank you, and Merry Christmas to you and your family as well.

    Being still mostly a spare parts build, other than some specific (and big) upgrades, the bearings in this truck are...

    As I mentioned in the thread for my truck, I've done a bunch of swapping around of things with my wife's truck to accomplish the transformation to a 13.5T Super Stock class - the most popular class...

    Thanks Synnergy. Never though about a front mount wing :cool:... The wing is is a pretty good spot with relation to body now, so I'll probably wind up leaving it as is for the time being.

    I saw the nick (pun intended :D) in the old rear shock tower, but wasn't sure if it was a shadow in the picture, a flaw in the fiberglass, or an actual cut in the material. Either way, the thicker...

    I've been doing a lot of thinking these days, and for awhile, (a dangerous thing for me!) about something regarding my racing of this truck. It's been setup from the beginning to run in the "Modified...

    A good sturdy solution, even if not the most elegant - it works. Good luck on the track - I really want to see this truck do well. :thumbup:

    The F-150 body came out nice & clean - it looks great! Ready to hit the track! :thumbup: Perhaps an Associated, or Losi rear truck body mount that attaches to the shock tower might work well. I'm...

    I agree with pretty much everything rc10nick said. The stock Rustler chassis is plenty rigid and comparable to most of the aftermarket chassis' out there in terms of rigidity. The shock towers (front...

    Hello dwblue00. Well, unfortunately, Anza is now no longer in business, and since they only had one distributor (Hobbytown), there really aren't any Amazon or eBay sellers out there with any...

    So the weekend I was planning a trip to the track was the weekend of one of the many large fires in Southern California. One of these was very close to me, and the family and I were actually...

    As I suspected - another fine job. The truck looks great and I imagine will be a great performer as well, especially with some of the design improvements you mentioned (drive shafts in-line with the...
  15. I enjoyed the Slash build that you did earlier...

    I enjoyed the Slash build that you did earlier quite a bit, so I'm definitely looking forward to seeing how this turns out. Your engineering/fabrication skills are top notch, and these builds come...
  16. Very nice indeed.... The Kashima coated shocks...

    Very nice indeed.... The Kashima coated shocks look amazing, and very professional - especially with the nice titanium standoffs. They should do quite well for you now with the proper lengths....
  17. Zedorda is absolutely correct. The Traxxas foam...

    Zedorda is absolutely correct. The Traxxas foam adhesive body washers he has linked to Amain are exactly what I'm using. I did, however, change all three mounts for the body to a Slash type of post...

    The Integy carbon fiber plate works great, very tough & nice looking. But I believe it's discontinued - I think they have a newer version out, but that's more aluminum than carbon fiber.

    Just wanted to give a quick little update on a couple of small things I did to the truck, especially since Synnergy and I were talking about one of the items in the last post. That one being the...

    For your application the RPM offset compensating arms will be perfect. They're a little too flexible for racing applications, but are amazingly resilient and tough for any bashing environment. They...

    While popular back in the day for stadium trucks, and still used occasionally today for them, they are specifically banned for use on short court trucks in the ROAR Rules - see below;

    Hey Synnergy,

    I'm currently using the shock mounts that came with the Anza towers for both the front & rear. Over those standoff mounts I have some (now discontinued) AE composite bushings. They...

    Thanks much, guys - I really appreciate it. Synnergy, I didn't see a single rear motored vehicle of any type there the entire day. All the buggy's were B6's, B6.1's , or Losi 22's, and all the trucks...

    As I mentioned in the last post, I did manage to make it to one of the somewhat far away tracks around me this past weekend. I went to a place called Coyote Hobbies Raceway in Victorville, California...
