    Also, Make sure to have ur tires on, and bolted, than take the Traxxas wrench, and u can tighten it that way, in the mean time. But ul need to do it with the wheels and tires on. If it still doesnt work, its ur lock nut, and u gotta change it... But m99% of em will work with the wheels on, and a finger on the spur while u tighten it.

    Okay thanks. I didn't have the wheels on so that probably was the problem. Thanks and I'll go try and do it now

    Thanks yea I'm Just about done except for some slight gearing modifications. I'll be posting pics and vids of my first run. Will most likely be on 3s then 4s then 6s. Takin in slow first to get the hang of it. I never had a rustler before let alone one with a mamba monster lol.

    Hey guys I got my gears together but want to ask if they look okay.

    Should they be closer?
    Also it makes a LOT of noise. The clinking of metal I'm guessing is why. Is it normal for metal gears to be reallyyyy loud? Thanks in advance

    Mesh looks about right. Maybe a tiny bit tighter but I think it's good where it's at.

    Yes they are foam. They are very good for a stock rustler vxl and for speed runs. I'm not so sure how they will be at 90+ mph but I'm sure I will soon find out. There have been great reviews about them for the stock rusty on 3s and lower. And welcome to RC btw! It's a great hobby and I'm sure you will love it! Most traxxas guys on here are very welcoming!

    Thanks!
    Doesn't Jaco offer different foam compounds? If so which would be best for asphalt?

    Found a real nice parking lot in the local train station where I can do some speed runs. Im gonna wait till the weekend to do that when there are little to no cars in the lot. It's a realllllyyy long stretch of asphalt/concrete so I'm very happy. I'Il be taking a vid (or someone else will) and I'll post it on this thread if anyone wants to see. Thanks

    Thank you Desert Jato. I have a question regarding my gyro. When my rusty turns on, connected to a 3s lipo the wheels rattle/shake back and forth. I'm wondering why this is? Any thoughts? Thanks

    i really have no idea about this since i didn't use a gyro before .
    it could be a radio glitch maybe ? i'm not sure. try putting in a glitch eleminator and check although it could be no easy to hook it if there's no empty channel on your radio.

    The glitch went away lol. I turned it on and the wheels were not moving at all so that's good.

    May not be the prettiest job but who cares. I had to remove part of the side because my 3s batteries' wires come out the side

    I just put in the stock gears from the original tranny case. Works perfectly. You don't need to touch the clutch just go with 30/34 gearing or 34/34 gearing. Around that area is perfect speed run gearing.

    Haha thanks and the a-arms are just the regular RPM a-arms. And I'm not sure about a good bash/speed gearing setup since most people with this 2200kv setup don't wanna do bashing. Maybe like 24/34 or something like that. In my opinion, I would stick with/get the Velineon for bash/speed. The mamba monster is already way too powerful for a little Rusty and bashing might not be such a good idea. But people say that using this motor in general is a horrible idea so if you wanna bash be my guest. You should start a thread or post some pics of your build as well. I'd love to see it!

    I think I can still use it :P

    So I open my drawer of batteries and this is what I see. I am very upset about this. But I have two more 2s lipos (these exact ones) that I can probably use. One is kind of starting to have a curve. I don't know if I should use it or not.

    I honestly have absolutely no idea. It was not looking too great when I put it in my drawer (like a couple months ago) and all of a sudden I guess it burst under pressure. And no I have a slash vxl that I wouldn't test it out on. I'm just gonna chuck it. Take the safe way out lol

    First speed run. I did it on 3s first to be safe and get a feel for the car. On 3s I achieved 64.7 mph. I will be taking a video tomorrow of 4s. I also had to unplug the gyro because it needs adjusting. It was steering the rusty by itself.

    Also my motor moved because of my arrogance to not properly put it on. I need to do some dremeling so it doesn't pop off again. It happened after I slowed down, after the 65 mph run.

    Okay dremeled everything up good so all 3 screws that are supposed to be connecting to the motor are on. Lol I only had 2 and one was not on correctly. I managed 2 passes. 1st 48 mph 2nd 65 mph. Tomorrow I'm gearin' up for 4s!! And maybe 6s. Idk about where I'm using it. It might be a bit sketchy :/

    Today was not successful. One of my 2s lipos has a dead cell I believe. So the whole time I thought I was running 4s I was actually running 3s with bad batteries. So I hit 55 mph. Clearly not a good day at all. School is starting tomorrow so I might not be able to do 6s until next weekend. Then I am certain we will be seeing bigger numbers. Like 80+ mph. I don't have much room so I'll push it to the limit without hitting something at the other end of the parking lot. Lol Sorry guys

    Yeah that's what I'm going to do. I'm going to bring it to the parking lot I've been doing speed runs at, and spend a few minutes tweaking the gyro's "gain" aka sensitivity. At 65 mph it was straight. That's why I started on 3s and not 6s lol.

    Looking at the you tube vidoes of draven and a few others with give you all of the answers you need. I've followed it and it works; now i'm trying to reach 100mph at 300 feet, or 100mph using a smaller motor. But before you continue with all of these
    expensive upgrades, ask yourself.. and then what? Last I checked, no one is getting any $$$ for speed runs. But have fun with it. BTW my grade level.. MD/Ph.D... LOL Enjoy
