Traxxas Rustler SRT Edition

Well this started out by picking up a Rustler for my Son to beat on. So a few months in and every time he runs it I want to change something lol.
Long story short I picked up a roller for cheap and I have started the process, currently waiting on the first round of parts to arrive. Purpose of this build is ? Durability, lightweight and improved handling.

Parts List (so far)

STRC: King Pins/ Hinge Pins $17.59
RPM: Transmission $20.59 ebay
Hot Racing: Sealed Diff Unit $22.88 ebay
Integy: Graphite chassis. Was 30.00 locally and felt ok, more on this later :) $55.00 ebay
Integy: CF Front/Rear Towers $57.00 ebay
Castle: 5700KV 1406 and Sidewinder SCT ESC $109.99* already had this in my box
Fast Eddie: Bearing Kit and Screws. $17.00
Kyosho KR200 RX $10.50

Running total = $285.09* Already had electronics for spares.

Gonna try and keep this build less than a VXL Rustler (yeah right) which is currently 324.99 at tower. Thinking this build will be faster, better handling and stronger than the stock VXL

Can see more info at RCU

 After the RPM Transmission Housing and Hot Racing Differential installation. Removed the top deck to start working on the steering assembly.

More next week
