Yes - you will find it will handle better with a lower stance; for sure. Ideally they say you want the suspension arms parallel with the ground when sitting idle on the ground.

I'll have to play around with tube length in the shock to get it just right but the job wasn't too bad. The big test will be when the rest of the rustler kit comes haha

Got the final bits of the rustler conversion bits coming in so I'll be doing the upgrade soon. The more I play with the pro .15 the more I like it. It's definately lacking the power but the tuning has been a dream and it's fun to be able to max it out. Maybe I'll transfer it to my biggy or find a project use for it. Still going the nova route eventually however ��

Thats good news! If you like the Pro .15 enough and it's in good enough mechanical condition, do the Turbo mod on it. I did it to mine and noticed a big change in how it ran. It still tuned easily enough, but it ran harder. Piston and sleeve sets are fairly cheap for it too. R/C Nitro Turing Car Racing's Setup Page

It won't run as hard as a 2.5 will, but it will be better anyhow. Even better with the stinger pipe from MIP.

Welp, I have a rustler. Can't wait to take it out and see the bell steering in action! Next up is porting the pro.15!

Thats awesome! I am sure you're going to love it. The handling is so much nicer and more precise than the direct steering.
