    I went to the skatepark the other day with my rustler vxl with strc/rpm/trax hop up bits and had a blast with lots of tumbles on 2s. Then did lots of 3s street runs on stock gearing and a few wobbles and back flop trying hi speed wheelies. Got home and I had snapped a screw in the strc rear alum tower and broke the output shaft on one rear wheel of the trax metal CVD shafts. I also had a trax anodized camber link binding.







    I go to the LHS and get 3 parts, for my electric rustler, and start building it today to see this once I try fitting the replacement MIP CVD:



    Then I look up the part number and realize it is for the 2wd nitro rustler. I go to the closer shop cuz eff rush hour and get the hd plastic trax ones, put the stock free moving camber links on, loctite everything, and decide to lower the rear/front as much as possible with the stock rear trax shock tower and strc front tower:













    Now that I see the pics in preview mode, I sorta wish I took the time to move everything over to that slash lcg chassis conversion kit I bought for more length.

    The new body took a beating today with the wheelie bar fully up on 3s at about 30 mph trying to ride out a long wheelie. Thankfully very little of the spoiler is clear so it doesn't affect the look as bad as all the scratches on top from the looong slide and subsequent barrel rolls. Stock plastic shock tower and new HD plastic rear drive axles survived the event and so far I haven't noticed any issues.

    Next plan is new shocks with shorter shafts and limiters to reduce the ride height and limit travel then move everything over to the slash lcg chassis conversion kit I bought. It sits about 1.75" off the ground without a battery/body. I would like to get that down to 1" or under













    And why I am converting it from basher to on road: skate parks are doing a number on the chassis, strc alum motor guard and front bulkhead.

    My first shot at a "speed build" starting with a used XL-5 roller off of ebay. Lots of Aluminum and a 3200KV Hobbywings motor and Max 10 SCT ESC. Body needs some paint and I am waiting for my wheelie bar and weighted bumper.
