    The Brushed Rustler 4x4 (at least the one that I got for my boy last year) comes with a TQ (NOT TQi) Transmitter, and thus does not support the blue-tooth module nor TSM. The blue-tooth module was...
  2. Broke a rear toe-link.... will 5338A work?

    So, I broke a rear toe-link. Oops.

    Yep, it's what happens when you spin the 'revo around, and slam the back of the car (toe-link-first??) into one of the supports for a 'grind-rail' at the local...

    Thanks for passing it along to the rest of us. I agree that it's a great mod. I'm a little surprised that Traxxas does not ship slightly longer pins with the aluminum upgrade parts, but so be it. ...

    While I can't answer why the 'Outsourced RC' Guy felt that he needed a spacer (no, I did not read all 273 comments to see if it was addressed there or not), I can point out that he uses the 100mm...

    Based on what you are initially describing (in the first 6 sentences or so), that sounds like the "usual" sensor-less, brushless motor COGGING. I'm sure that there are hundreds of sites and videos...

    Nope, the GTR shocks are a larger diameter, and thus the springs from the "Ultra Shocks" (stock on the Brushed and Brushless Rustler 4x4) will not fit.

    When I did the upgrade to GTR shocks, I...

    You'll be stressing the motor and ESC more than was intended by the vehicle's designers. This 'stress' will likely manifest itself as increased temperature of both the ESC and the Motor. I believe...

    Thanks for the info! I've see enough of your videos to know that you are working your Revo a lot harder than I'm intending to (of course intent goes out the window as the vehicle tumbles ;-) ) so I...

    Welcome to the Forum!
    Don't feel too bad about breaking it already... I managed to break a front A-Arm (hitting a tree... oops) my first run out, so you are doing better than I did :-)

    Apparently Traxxas spells these as "ProGraphix" (I got a little confused when I searched the site for ProGrafix and came up empty). I did not dig too far, but it does not look like they offer the...

    Yes, and all three 3S LiPo batteries listed are 135mm length that are needed to be able to fit into the Rustler 4x4.

    2857x - The 6400MAH 3S battery is "taller" than the others, but it does fit...

    The NON-VXL Rustler 4x4 (aka the "Brushed" version) has the same size battery tray as the VXL (and thus will "fit" the same size batteries).

    The reason for the distinction between the batteries...

    OK, so I do realize that I'm bringing this thread back from the dead, but is anyone aware of a "rear motor mount" similar-ish to the one on the video? HPP-Germany.com no longer has a DNS entry, so I...

    Many Thanks, Dcuda69!

    Traxxas 5161 plus a little dremel-work (to cut the longer E-Maxx pins down to Ruster-size, and then bevel the tip nice-n-smooth) got the job done quite nicely!

    I left...

    That looks like a great solution, only when I go looking at the E-Maxx exploded view (https://traxxas.com/sites/default/files/3905_front.pdf), it seems to have Revo-style dual A-Arms with ball ends...
  17. Q for those that have switched to Aluminum C-Hubs

    So, I picked up some Aluminum C-Hubs/Steering Blocks from the Slash Ultimate a while ago. I noticed when I was installing them on my Rustler 4x4, that the pin that goes thru the end of the A-Arm, and...

    I'm FAR from an expert, but that strikes me as a spot that you'd only want to use a dry lube (if any lube). Seems important to keep it clean, but as you pointed out, any kind of liquid lube is likely...

    I paid less than $300 (including half shipping) for the eRevo 2.0 RTR that is "broken", three Traxxas 3S batteries that fit the vehicle, a Traxxas EZ-Peak dual charger, a Traxxas EZ-Peak single...

    For sure, I have seen videos that show folks having the body pop-off of their Rustler 4x4, I think that it's only happened to me once. I may not bash as hard as many, but I drive poorly enough that...

    The 7-cell NiMH battery is 8.4v
    A 2-cell LiPO battery is 7.4v
    Given those things, it makes sense that a 2-cell LiPo would work in your existing set-up.
    Note that a 3-cell LiPO battery is a higher...

    Icehawk: Do you have a Traxxas PN for the blue A-Arms, or better yet, a link to them? I was under the impression that the Ruster 4x4 came with the HD arms already (just in black, not the 'pretty'...
