    Tires can make a big difference (larger, Stampede sized) in the Rustler's off-road abilities (you'd also have to adjust the gearing to compensate for the larger tires). That said, I'd wait till you...

    $300 is definitely a bit much. I bought one from Trinity around the time BL motors were gaining traction new for maybe half that.

    Negative timing is almost always going to be a bad thing,...

    Yeah the original diffs were not sealed and did use regular grease.

    Looking forward to seeing this project completed! :)

    Personally, I'd keep the ez-start, but that's me. I've always liked the...

    This is a fun project! What a clean truck!

    That said, I would HIGHLY consider ditching that MSC. As you probably know, those things are horrible. I'm sure you could scrounge up an old ESC from...

    The biggest difference is obviously the chassis. You'll also need skid plates, a battery hold down, body mounts, tires & wheels, turnbuckles, a servo saver, appropriate gearing for the larger tires,...

    Those brushes look like they have a lot of life left in them yet. Some discoloration will be normal due to wear and heat. As for the timing, it's hard to tell from that picture. Part of me wants to...

    Looks great! I, too, really like how you used the sponge to get that look!:cool:

    More buttons, higher cost seems to be what they're looking for. :lol:

    These days, I mostly recommend simply upgrading things that you break/wear out.

    As for bodies, I'd recommend giving painting your own a try; it's really not that difficult, and you'll have...

    I guess the only pro would be part interchangeability, but they shock lengths are what they are for a reason. I would stick with the longs up front and the xxls out back for optimal suspension...

    Did you stick with the stock plastic diff case or upgrade to the one with metal teeth? I've honestly had pretty good luck with the stock, plastic diff housing. I do run a metal idler gear, though, as...

    For what it's worth, I made my own u-joint tool out of a large, flat head screw driver (a short one) by grinding a slot into it; it works a lot better since I can get more leverage.

    Yeah, a whole new system will be needed to upgrade. Modern radio systems don't use crystals (frequency chips, as you called them), they bind with the receivers you pair them with. Much less of a...

    As long as the 3ch transmitter is compatible with the 3ch receiver, I don't see why it wouldn't work.

    Yeah, it's probably just that the plastic is new. Pre-threading the holes like nootch suggested (without the servo installed) should make the process easier. :)

    What bearing kit did you get exactly? My guess is that your kit came with both 5x11 and 5x8 bearings. Older model Stampedes used smaller 5x8 bearings at the wheels and 5x11 bearings in the...

    If your Rustler has a stock (for the time) 84-tooth spur gear, I'd start with a 15-tooth pinion and see how that works. What speed controller is in your classic Rustler?

    I still can't believe I lived to see the day of Traxxas kits return. RTR is great and all, but building one is way better!
