    HELP !!! Need rustler parts

    So my ruztler hit a mail box and I broke about everything in the front end, only surviving thing in the front is the chassis, so can anyone help me find a complete new or used front end ? Bulk head, a arms, casters, blocks, tie rods, upper arms, shock tower, upper chassis deck, possibly shocks, thanks in advance !

    Best thing to do is check Craigslist or eBay for a roller chassis and go from there. You could also look at the parts diagram and find out what exact parts you need and go to a hobby shop and piece it back together. Personally I would use this time to upgrade a few things like the a arms, caster block and shock tower.

    Yeah, I plan on going alluminum and Rpm, I just literally have a bare chassis front end, My blitzerbeetle had been hit by a car, and my rustler has melted a gearbox, so somehow I ended up with a rustler front end and a blitzerbeetle rear, I'll post pictures as I get parts for the build

    Well there's multiple ways to approach this. Do you want upgrades? Is there a budget? I'll post links and you choose which you want okay? I don't believe you can just purchase a whole front end.
    Bulk head:
    Aluminum:

    Front arms, I got RPM arms. The wide front kit:

    ALSO I forgot with this mod, you WILL need to start getting all rear off sets or it will be really wide in the front or back.
    The links needed:

    But if you just want the shorter arms I'd still go with Rpm:

    Front bearing carriers? I went with RPM and have no problems:

    Caster blocks:
    Aluminum:
    http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...&I=LXCSFX&P=ML
    I can't even find plastic ones. Don't get RPM caster blocks though.
    Front shock tower:

    Front links:
    I don't know the actual size but here's a package for all links

    Upper chassis:

    http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXJK71&P=7
    And finally shocks I'd recommend the big bores. Or proline. Whichever money allows.

    And this is a long post but everything you need and more...

    sounds like you actually had a real crash lol. I would have to say just go to your local rc store or hobby store or maybe even online on this website to get the parts that you are looking for. but I say if you want a more sturdy front end buy the rpm front bumper and traxxas aluminium castor blocks. But I would say to just save up your money and buy better and more lasting parts. Hope this helps you!

    Oh yeah Benny I forgot the bumper LOL!
    I agree with him but I like my T-bone bumper way better than any other bumper I own. It takes a little bit to arrive because they're made to order. I'd get the basher.

    No problem! I'll actually be making a thread similar to what I posted so keep checking hopefully there's no rules on how many links are posted...
