    Skid plates / Lower COG a bit

    I've been toying around with these for a bit now. They definitely protect the braces, lower the COG slightly..

    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.

    A Slushler, as I call it, is great.

    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.

    You are dead right. There is a gap between the motor and clip on heat sink.
    Air is a great insulator and the less direct contact means less heat transfer.

    I found a picture of my old chains and they looked exactly like yours. 8 rows of chain with zipties.
