    Either directly solder your wires or get some new plugs like Deans or Powerpoles. A good, strong steering serbo would be worth the money. Sooner or later, you'll want to get some better tires, like Losi's or Proline's.

    Dudenone, If I didnt know any better it looks like you may have drilled bigger holes in the rear rims on the Rustler like I did. I opened them up to 3/8 front and rear and drilled from the backside, hang on to the rims, once that bit grabbs, wooahhh

    yeah, I dyed the wheels black like my Nitro Sport. The holes are drilled bigger and you weren't kidding.....that drill took off and grabbed the wheel! I thought I'd change the stock look a little.

    actually my truck is about at its limits with speed, its hard not to spin the tires on acceleration and at full speed it has a tendancy to drift around, oh and i have 4 8 cell packs so i get plenty of run time (5 minutes each)
