    Check out the Associated shock assortment package (blanking on 'official' name, and don't know part number). There's two different lengths (one perfectly fits Rustler/Slash 4x4 front shocks, the...

    Using the stock hexes, there absolutely no way to good 2.2" wheels. I discovered that VERY quickly. That's why, for now, I'm using 15mm axle extenders. I'm looking for a better solution, but,...

    True. I've been considering doing one, based on the Slash (not sure about the Rustler, as it has a shorter wheelbase...not good). Ty (of Tekin) recently finished a video series showing exactly how...

    If "resolving" the problem was that simple, I have a question. Does this mean that the TSM is 'defective'. Interested in knowing/understanding, in case my step-dad's 2WD Slash every had the same...

    When doing so, visually inspect not just the wheels, but inside. Check the servo saver, the servo, the steering turnbuckles, etc. Just looking at the wheels rattling isn't going to help determine...

    Just a thought, but, have you tried holding your Rusty in one hand, "accelerating" the vehicle work the other hand, and visually "inspecting" to see if you notice whatever is happening while it's...

    The aluminum caps are not a "Band-Aid". You'll find a lot of people have gone that route, and NEVER had a problem after that. I them because it appeared that you were concerned with cost. The 2WD...

    As had been mentioned, many times, in several different threads, replacing the caps is the first thing you should upgrade after purchasing the vehicle. The plastic caps popping off is EXTREMELY...

    Although it's not designed for the Rustler 4x4 (or any Traxxas vehicle, for that matter), Hot Racing does some wheel hub extensions, w/12mm hexes, designed for Axial vehicles. They come in 15mm,...

    Thank you...and, already have. Took it with me to Vegas for Thanksgiving week (visiting parents). I haven't had it on the clay track at NorCal Hobbies yet (obviously, since those tires aren't glued...

    Thank you...and, yes, I did spend a considerable amount of time researching possible part choices, and determining what should work best. In the matter of the shock towers, I "failed" a few times,...

    This is my first time taking a vehicle, and turning it into something else, so, I am curious as to other people's thoughts. Technically, this project isn't 100% complete. First, over the next 1-2...

    Unfortunately, my shock tower "solution" created a body mount "nightmare". I won't go into the details of solving that problem, other than to say it involved more failed-solutions than the shock...

    Next on the list was replacing the Rusty's "latch" body-mount system with a more traditional mount, which meant replacing the stock shock towers. While knowing this was 'simple', determining what...

    When I decided to do this "conversion", the biggest problem, and, thus, the first step, was deciding on a body. This wasn't because the body was the most important part of the project...it was...

    Technically, I could say all of this started less than a month after purchasing the Rusty, as that's when I did the first upgrade (replacing the stock Traxxas servo with a Hitec servo). Once the...
