    6774A test fit

    The pair of 6774A wheels and tires came in. I only bought the pair because I wanted to test fit them before going whole-hog on buying wheels for two trucks. The proportions look right and I'll buy...

    Yes, for the bashers I think stock will be fine. I haven't purchased driveshafts for the speed build because I want to look for something stronger and in red.

    Coming together

    My boys are running out of things to do to their trucks. For each one of them I need wheels and tires, motors, ESCs, wire looms, radios and receivers. The black chassis is much further behind as I...

    GPM steering blocks

    Three clutch assemblies arrived earlier this week. I'm going to save them for the weekend so we will have enough time to install all three at the same time.

    Thank you very much for the compliments. I hadn't considered visibility problems on the black chassis but I plan to go with a red body and maybe, just maybe, some white stripes. I'm on the fence...

    Stamped body fit

    I had the same problem. The RPM mounts will not cure that particular problem which is why I will be punching new holes up front. The adjustable RPM mounts are handy in the rear so that the body can...

    Stampede body drama continues

    We've committed to the Stampede body mostly because I spent the money on it. I don't like the look but my son does and it is his truck so who am I to judge? I'm mostly frustrated because I was led...

    Stampede body

    The Stampede body arrived last night and it doesn't look right at all on the Rustler. The rear body mount from the Stampede makes the "bed" of the body way too high, IMO. It is so high that the...

    Shock mount spacers and rear hub carriers

    You have blown my mind with this revelation. I already have the Stampede mount. The old 1914 kits I bought work for both cars. I showed my son the selection of Stampede bodies and he is taken with...

    LipoLock bumper

    OK, I've decided to stick with a Rustler for the speed build. I really want the '39 Ford body but if I decide to go down that road I'll just get or build an actual Slash.

    I don't feel like hacking up the extension and then hacking up the chassis to fit nerf bars. Should I just convert the black chassis over to a Slash build? Thoughts?
