    The truck bed liner will make the body super heavy, don’t spray it in there.
    OMG I bought one like that. I swear the body was 4 pounds, tape and bed liner.

    I was looking for one for my stampede. I might end up getting one for my Slash 4x4.
    I actually would have got these fenders, but I had just bought the over tray from J Concepts.

    Not sure if they have it for Rustler.

    16/90 or 19/90 or 16/86 are all pretty safe.
    If you blew you spur quickly 2 years ago, it was most likely not meshed right.
    If your spur slowly wore out until you eventually blew it out, and then...

    RE-Foaming tires

    I've had these Proline Switch tires for about 9-10 years.
    They have been used exclusively as Stampede fronts.
    Best front tires EVER for 2WD's in my opinion.
    Anyways, they've been getting softer...

    The Vxl also comes with an optional 23 tooth pinion. There are bigger pinions available too.
    The other option is to go with smaller spur gears. Thereís 86t, 83t, etc.
    Combining a extra large pinion...

    You just have to keep substituting known working parts to find the bad one.
    Itís not the radio, so you have to try a good servo and then good Recvr if necessary.

    itís really important that your steering links are both the same length. Start with that.

    First check that you havenít accidentally turned the throttle trim knob from zero(center).
    If itís ok then you likely need to recalibrate your esc.

    The Emaxx body shown fits pretty tight to the chassis without the nerf bars.
    I run the J Concepts over tray as well. It costs what a new body costs.

    Also you can add silicone tubing to the shock shaft outside the shock as a bump stop/up limiter.

    The Slash tires have a different offset. Using them on the rear will widen it.
    Rustler rears are the right offset. They should tuck inside the fenders.

    If you are happy with the handling for the way you drive it, get the plastic links.
    They add another layer of protection in a crash due to their flex.

    They all have their faults. Rustlers tend to bottom out and lose lots of momentum off-road.
    An LCG Slash IS a Rustler if you ask me. Iíve run both. They bottom out and stick to mud.
