    Traxxas Slash 2wd LCG Chassis

    I currently am running a 2wd Slash VXL with a Rustler chassis and an STRC LCG (low center of gravity) kit. I recently noticed the rear end of my Slash is very heavy and causing the car to tip backwards. I have the blue Traxxas LCG chassis, but I am not sure if swapping chassis will change how...

    Traxxas Rustler with working 2 speed

    I've seen this asked a couple of times so I thought I'd share how I put a 2 speed in my Traxxas Rustler. Some background: This was my first nitro RC. I've been working on cars all my life but my background is IT and Engineering. I got the stadium truck from my dad. He bought it probably close...

    "Frankenstein Rustler" 2 speed tranny.

    Hey Nitro R.C. lovers! Today I bring you guys the "Frankenstein Rustler" which was made out of 2 used cars (Rustler and Jato) and a few new parts.. I wanted it to look different than the regular Rustler (grey upper chassis) and since the Jato's tranny is black I decided to black out as much as...

    Used heavily upgraded Rustler 4x4 value question.

    Rustler VXL 2WD shocks and drive shafts recommendations

    Well, I had a driveshaft that kept popping off when doing even small jumps. U joint would pull apart right by the tranny on slip clutch side. It never broke but was worn where it was pulling out. I moved the camber link to too hole, got new tires and did not have anymore issues. Doing a speed...

    Rusty Gets A Rebuild 4

    The fiberglass chassis is gone. The MIP CVD drive shafts are swapped. The hubs are replaced with new FLM hardware. I converted the hubs to the Jato setup years ago. It limited wheel selection. He's coming along.

    Rusty Gets A Rebuild

    I bought my first hobby grade RTR in 2006, the Traxxas Rustler XL10. It's been through hell and back too many times to mention. I've upgraded it many times over the years. There are actually no original pieces left on it but it still has that Rusty soul. Now he gets the thorough makeover that he...

    G'day! Has anyone swapped the Hex-type wheel mounts from a Rustler onto a Bandit and was it relatively easy? Thanks!

    Brushless setup for reliable hot weather bashing?

    I have an old Rustler XL-5 that my son has become comfortable enough with that I'd like to upgrade the motor and REC to make it more interesting. I live in East Texas so it can get ridiculously hot. I'm not looking to set land speed records. A legitimate 40mph is sufficient. My primary...

    Nitro rustler fuel tank and cap

    I was wondering what aftermarket fuel caps will fit the rustler 75cc tank. I'd like to get a nice shiny gold one. Also was wondering what larger tanks could be fit to the truck. I'll change tank if needed, but really just want a better sealing cap than the stock one. Thanks in advance

    Nitro Rustler Bigger Fuel Tank?

    Hey guys I was looking to expand the fuel tank on my rusty from this dinky little one it comes with. After searching all I could find was some forum posts from 2006 with broken link and parts I can't find anywhere anymore. Has anyone done a fuel tank expansion on their Rustler lately and if so...

    Hey guys been wanting to get into Nitro RC almost my whole life and I finally bit the bullet and did it! I had some questions though. After doing a lot of reading and research I saw that people were saying the Traxxas fuel was too oily and not to run it. It seemed that Byron fuel was the top...
