RE: Lipo Storage

I've stored mine in a fridge. You should try keeping them in an airtight container to keep moisture out of the batteries. I put mine in a ziploc.

RE: New modified Rustler pics

I'll try getting more photos soon.

The wheels run ok, they are a bit saggy, but they're good in the dirt!

RE: How many here has a RUSTLER VXL???

My first and only hobby truck to own. This thing is truly a great R/C truck to own.

I've done a ton of things to it, including:

Dirt Hawg Tires
Talon Tires
Waterproof Servo

RE: New modified Rustler pics

Ah, I just purchased a clear Rustler VXL body. Then I headed down to the Hobby Store and bought some black R/C spray paint. The only mods to the body were taking off the small tail, and cutting a...

RE: New modified Rustler pics

traxxaspede: Yes, I would think the rear wing would boost performance, at least when driving at high speeds. Though I only got it for looks. :)

RE: New modified Rustler pics

Yeah, I haven't ran my truck in the snow, but I'll tell you now, Rustler's are not good for deep snow, considering the low clearance. Maybe I'll get some shots of it in the snow though.

RE: New modified Rustler pics

I'm not sure, you're going to have to measure your pede's rear tower, and compare it to the measurements of the spoiler.

RE: New modified Rustler pics

Surprisingly, the rear tower already had the exact size and holes to fit the spoiler. However, the shell covered it completely. So I had to cut a large square-shaped hole in the rear of it. Now the...

New modified Rustler pics

My VXL has undergone many new installments, the biggest being the tail spoiler from an REVO. It's looking more and more like the truck I pictured in my mind when I first bought it. :D

I have a...

RE: Recommended Lipo for Rustler/Stampede VXL

I have two Venom LiPos, 5000mah and 2 Cell. They have been powerful and faithful batteries, and output a good amount of power. My Rustler skimmed down a beach at a nice 55mph with a 31-tooth pinion...

RE: VXL PROBLEM!

Ah,

the best way to secure the wire is to solder it on. But this will require a commitment to the motor and the ESC, obviously.

RE: Official Waterproofing Your RC Thread

My Rusty died submerged in saltwater... :(

I sent it 5 days ago to Traxxas to repairs, so in the meantime, I'm modding out my Rusty with new waterproof parts. I bought a waterproof servo, and I...

RE: A day on the beach gone bad...

I sent an Email to them, about everything. Sending it in for repairs is much more better than buying a new one. I can easily handle $45.

RE: A day on the beach gone bad...

Yeah,

Unfortunately, I was very far away from my Rustler when it took the dip. So it had maybe 20 seconds of sitting there with only the servo above water.

I'm gonna send it in for repairs....

Not really the ESC, though I'm concerned about the motor.

RE: Rustler VXL??

Hey,

if you don't want petty performance, then ditch the combos. I got this setup:

Battery:

RE: My "Stealth" Rustler pics

Actually, you're right, that's not bashing. Lol.

I'm not going to do bashing with this body, I hate to get it all scratched up, like my original one.

RE: My "Stealth" Rustler pics

Not yet. I'm planning on making another video soon. For now, this is the only video:

This of course is from before my new body was even started on.

RE: My "Stealth" Rustler pics

They're perfect for dirt and grass. Can't say they grip well on gravel, though. I haven't tested them on pavement yet. But they give real good handling everywhere else.

RE: My "Stealth" Rustler pics

These tires are the Stampede Talon tires. I'd ask a local hobby dealer before getting one, I'm not sure if it'll fit on a Bandit.

RE: To all you vxl owners -

Wow, that day with your VXL has made you ticked, hasn't it?

I tend to watch my Rustler, and don't do anything stupid regarding jumps. Probably why I have no probs with my ESC.

RE: My "Stealth" Rustler pics

I like black, plain and simple. Decals ruin it, unless it's headlights/taillights. :)

Creativity? What do you mean? the photos or the paint job?
