    RE: Official Rustler Thread

    Castle Creations 1410 4 Pole 3800 vs. Velineon 3500 mini-review:

    Just swapped from the VXL motor to a CC 4 Pole 1410 3800.

    Wow, what a difference.

    1. NO heat. I was struggling with the VXL heating. CC's tallest *recommended* gearing for this motor in the rustler is 19/90 (4.74). I started at 17/83 (4.88) which worked fine, cool motor, stupid torque, severely traction limited, so I switched to 23/90 (3.91) and it was still very cool with plenty of torque for unlimited wheelspin (Masher2K 2.2s).

    2. Runtime! I don't keep close track, but now I wish I had. It has to be 50% higher than it was on the VXL.

    Got the motor for $70 delivered off Ebay., running the HobbyWing XeRun 80A ESC.

    In the Night Garden is freaky for my youngest when she was younger she would instantly ask for it to be changed when it started.

    Slash 4x4 Bellcrank assembly review

      Not sure I can recommend this for ol' Rusty.  The issue is the trimming that you have to perform on the chassis to make it work.  It not only decreases the chassis stiffness in that area, but is likely to increase the stress concentration at the trim, promoting damage in the event of a crash (ask me how I know....)

    The bellcrank with integrated servo saver is nice, but having your chassis crack not so much.   I've reinforced my (now cracked, thanks...) chassis with JB Weld fillets, will update here after I get some runtime.

    Thats why I went with Proline's bell-crank with integrated servo saver made for the Rustler.

    Ya every TV generation has their mind numbing shows remember Tella Tubbies??   I do prefer my kids to watch something where the characters are speaking a proper language.

    RE: Official Rustler Thread

    so true, about kids TV....


    That sucks about the crack.... I want to see a head to head review of the Traxxas one i posted compared to the RPM one...
    I can get 4 of those upgraded traxxas ones for the price of 1 proline bellcrank kit.
    So in my mind the Proline one would have to be 4x better (well at least twice as good), to justify buying it

    Bonk! There's this park by my house, that has a paved area on which is painted I swear an oval track. It's maybe 30'x70'? Rusty was singing, until I slung him into one of the benches along the straights. They're mounted on 2" steel pipe set into the pavement....

    for one plz post a link too what are some good on road tires that dont expand at high speed on a rustler vxl

    probably some type of foams (sorry i don't have a link). but any tires can be made not to balloon with some internal taping.

    It's basically when you tape the inside of the tire with a layer of heavy duty tape. If done right, it will prevent the tire from ballooning, ultimately increasing handling.
