Default Finally!!!!!

I know this isn't the usual topic to discuss in the Electric On-Road forum, but I've kept you guys updated thus far and will continue to deliver this final update....

The Rusty Project is complete!!! It was built to compete at our local oval track, and was a real fun transformation.

The Rustler was never an upper class off-roader, let alone a competant on-roader. We've had plenty of experience with these little Traxxas cars, and are confidant in our abilities to get one to perform on-road. We've done it before in the past.

Here's the link...

We still have to lower the suspension a bit, tune the camber some more, and play with the shims under the tie rods a tiny bit more, but it's all assembled and ready to go. Get this... it's geared with a freshly tuned 27T Green Machine 3 motor from Team Jennings (Thanks buddy!) and a 27/87 gear selection for the outdoor track with a 2.72 internal ratio with 2.2" inside diameter Pro-Line Road Hawg tires. The indoor oval track ratio is a 27/87 combo. We gear em' high and crank em' hard in the "Pro Stock" class, but then again all we're concerned about is getting more speed. We ordered a 3Racing heatsink and fan combo which we still need to modify to fit onto the motor. The molded motor guard (Which is normally bolted to the tranny and chassis as a separate unit on most Associated, Duratrax, and Losi trucks) is preventing the heatsink from seating properly without dead shorting the wire tabs.

Anyway, let us know what we can do to get this thing going better. We've already thought about caster, but if we modify the front bulkhead we'll get insane bump steer problems later on down the line. Any comments on this would be greatly appreciated. Some tuning tips would also be great! We're running an unbanked concrete oval track with plenty of cracks and gobs of traction... a bit of understeer is prefered for the corners.
