    RE: NItro rustler mid motor electric conversion w/pics.


    ORIGINAL: flmrustler25

    Nice rustler conversion. I have to admit that I saw yours and liked it so much that I decided to try that on one of my electric rustlers and I would say it came out pretty good and it was easy but I haven't driven it yet. What do you think?
    That is a pretty nice looking rustler. i dont think i could have flipped the tranny around on my pede, and the rustler is a better platform for speed and stuff. What motor would you run it it.

    I also have the battery on the front to lessen the wheelies. I have also found a kit to make the B4 mid motor, i dont think i want to switch mine.

    Thanks,
    Dean

    RE: NItro rustler mid motor electric conversion w/pics.

    Only reason I never went with that setup is because of the amount of chassis space you lose. I was considering it but went for a protective wheelie bar and moving the batts a bit forward instead. How much better does it run with that setup?

    RE: NItro rustler mid motor electric conversion w/pics.

    Well, i ran it at ocrc yesterday. It turns in good, off power and is fast. but you have to have a smooth trigger finger. but its still a ruslter. After driving my B4 it felt like a tank. but it was the fastest car there.

    RE: NItro rustler mid motor electric conversion w/pics.

    I did a crappy conversion of mine
    not very long term but im improving it






    this might provoke some more ideas
    basically its a motor from and old tamiya super hornet with the stock pinion gear (18t)
    and an upgraded hitec esc
    it works great but as you can see the motor mount needs serious improvement but hey its works and its a start
