Default Cleaning up the Traxxis Rustler.

I picked this up last wekk along with A vintage RC10 and some other stuff. I Had to tighten and adjust just about everything on the truck. but I think she is cleaning up pretty nicely.. The first few pictures are before.
The rest of the pictures I took Today.. Enjoy.

Looks way better now!

But i would have taken off the electrical tape on the wires to the ESC, something tells me it may not be soldered, but just wounded together. I would have investigated that! This will cause bad contact and making things run hotter than neccesary. And maybe change the contacts on the battery and ESC to Traxxas or Deans to get the best out of it.

I did check the wires and they are soldered together. I Removed the old Electrical tape that was on it. You can see the old tape in the first few pictures. The electrical tape that is on it now is new. I went over the whole truck thoroughly Everything seems to be in very nice shape. I do not have A Extra deans connector laying around or I would have changed it. Thanks for the comment.
