    Angry New owner parts issues

    Hey guys,
    Ive been trying for months to get the right parts for my rusty. It came with ball bearing front wheel assembly and I bought some proline trenchers with desperado wheels that take hex hubs. Ive got integy castror blocks and traxxas steering block which I had to modify to even get the kingpin to go through. now that its all installed the steering block wont clear the A arm. I'm beginning to wonder if theres even parts out there to make it all work right.

    consult the manual for the exploded view? Make sure you're steering block and castor blocks are the right way around aswell.

    If you go to the exploded view for the electric rustler you can get the traxxas parts that will work. The electric rustler runs the front wheels on a hex. You will need the castor blocks, stub axles, and bearings. They are a direct drop in with no mods.
    I would throw the integy stuff in the trash.
