    Chassis is Extreme 2 piece carbon fiber. Arms and towers are STRC. Axles are Traxxas 1951Rís. 17mm hubs are HR, 6mm rear, 10mm front. Tires pictured are GRP S4ís. JConcepts Front bumper, TBone rear bumper. Aluminum tie bar. GTR shocks long in the front XL in the rear, with Revo Springs. Savox 1258TG servo, Kimbrough servo saver. Traxxas aluminum steering rack.

    After seeing some of your other builds on this forum, I have no doubt you can hit the goal you are shooting for

    Thatís an awesome take on the Rustler!! Nice to see it all ready for action.

    That super tranny is pretty great. Weíve been beating ours up all year and itís still silky smooth. I appreciate all the advice you gave me when I was getting it all put together.

    Anyways, good luck! Hope to see a video!

    Makes me anxious every time I run it.

    Your build is awesome..! It look like strong and reliable. For the most I can see, the choice of parts is discerning and the quality is there but I wondering of how much it could weight..? Anyhow, as we know, weight does not affect top speed but I think it should help to keeps it on the ground and stable at high speed, I really like the body design, it appear to look great and effective, also your motor is a great choice of quality and performance, everything seems to be think with one goal in mind.



    Great project and good overall design and development. Keep up the good work..!
    Good driver. Bad setup. Bad things will happen...

    Hello... Super sweet speed runner. I dig the body. It looks like you used a Stampede rear body mount? Can you detail how you mounted the body? Thanks.

    I used the mounts in the front and I had the rear mount, donít remember the kit itís from. Just played with height and orientation. Iíll get some detailed pictures.
