    Fit. The setup is where FLM stepped its game up. The pictures will speak for themselves. Almost done with the build.




    It looks like you used the traxxas Teflon .5mm shims in there. Does anybody have an opinion or experience with using metal shims instead of the Teflon? Has anybody ever burned up one of the Teflon shims while running a high powered setup?

    Awesome! I still have a little soldering left to do for the motor wires, then well be ready to rip! I had to order a couple of last minute spur gears, because the stock 86 and 83t wont clear the VXL camber link when using the FLM rear shock tower.

    Did you keep the I bar in the diff? Any pics?

    Gotta add it before and after the I bar, and rotate the gears as well

    We’ll see if the rustler 4x4 driveshafts hold up , I hate to add more weight to the back of the car with metal driveshafts
