nice.... I'd prefer the plug in dremel because you can get like 45,000 RPM drilling RPM's on it... the battery one I have is the NmHI on and the tops is 15,000

What kinda rims you think I should get, I look around for rims but never can find any really, mainly just the rpm rims and there is only like 2 styles. Maybe I'm not looking hard enough. If you know any other sites or brands that make rims for the rusty, let me know.

if your looking for racing rims you can dremel the stock ones like on ultimate traxxas. you could also buy proline ultralights or traxxas ultralights. if your looking for looks rpm rims look the best IMO.

id get the second one,more bang for your buck cause it already has alot of good hop ups like RPM parts,ESC,and the better radio.

Blue Rustler:

I fi were you I would just get the stock Traxxas Rims and then Dremel them out like on Ultimate Traxxas. That's what I am thinking of doing, on my sandmaster I am running the stock Chrome rims and gladiators, they look pretty good. I think that you should jsut keep the stock rims, they look pretty good as is and are very durable

it works but not well,you have to go very slow adn be very careful,it took me two hours PER tire on my t-maxx. it probably wouldnt take quite so long with a ST though cause the tires are smaller

i just installed my airtronics blazer sport from my t-maxx on it and what a difference.i use my rustler more than my t-maxx now so i switched radios and you wouldnt believe the difference a quality radio can make!my handling is way better and the steering response is perfect!i cant wait until i get it out for some more bashing.i just put 4 batteries(not all at once)through it and they are recharging.i got three more batteries today so i have 6 now but 2 are really old,they are JRL toys 1200 packs and then i got some old dynamite packs that are 13 or 14 years old so they dont hold much of a charge then i have 2 amp max 2 batteries.my old amp max 2 blew up[:@]so i got another one.nad in a couple of weeks im getting a venom racing 1800 pack.my collection of batteries is slowly growing.

Nice, next thing you should upgrade is your batteries... I run 2400's when I race my ultima, I have 6 cars not including my parts rusty chassis that I am going to rebuild... does anyone have any extra parts? Unspoken, you should also upgrade your motor if you haven't already, and your ESC

deans have a MUCH lower resistance than tamiyas or bullets, that means less heat, longer runtimes, and faster reaction time....(though the last is indescernible by humans....)

no..... deans are the best! I have them on both my batteries and my motors on my electrics.... I reccomend them all the time... it's a must have if you race.... or Probars.... they are good too.... I used them but I like the deans better...

just my $0.02

BTW, I made a Tires and Rims forum poll, in the RCU Car Talk Forum, leave a post if you would... or a vote... Thanks Guys!
