    Traxxas Rustler VXL Custom Body

    This is a body I painted for my Rustler VXL. It was the first body I ever painted. I used Pactra Metallic Blue for the body and Pactra Candy Red for the windows.

    Like the body and the cooling holes
    If nobody comes back from the future to stop you, how bad of a decision can it be?

    Thanks. I will have pictures of my Slash 4x4 once the body comes in from Amainhobbies. I want to fully upgrade my Rustler and my Slash.

    Oh yea. Also I relocated the ESC to the side of the chassis, that's why the cooling holes are on the side. It might be 4 days before I even get the Slash 4x4 body so.

    I did that side conversion with my car too and the handling was a little bit better.

    Yea. I'm more of a basher so handling doesn't really matter to me but it does have a lower LCG. I mainly did it for cooling. It's a must if your a racer though.
