    Rusty Snow Bash

    Here's some pictures from today's snow run. This is my beater Rustler. Only upgrades are aluminum tranny, wheelie bar, esc fan, and 2.2" Proline sand paws on the back which I run year round for snow and dirt. Anacondas for pavement and speed runs. I can't even say it got much love today, I rinsed it off in the utility sink and hung on the wall to dry. I typically only run 3s lipos in the car and have only changed about 4/5 parts in probably 4 years of ownership and keep in mind this is the beater so it gets beat the hardest. So stock Rustlers are actually very dependable! Fastest I've ever got it going was 55mph and that took quite a straight away. Feel free to post pictures of your snow runs or beater Rustlers!

    I've had my Rustler on the beaches of Florida, in the snow of Ohio, on the streets, off-road and the race track. It's just a all-around fun car!

    My setup for the snow this year. I used it at the beach over the summer but I'm waiting for the snow.

    Yeah the beach was really hard on my rustler. I didn't get to use six cells because I forgot my y connector lol. Super swampers are the best tires IMHO I've had them for almost a year and I haven't even worn half the tread on any of them yet. The sand blew up my Vxl motor. It stopped moving all of a sudden and smoke came from the motor with melted plastic. I'm never being them to the beach again...
