So being insane, i went and traded a perfectly good 1/8th nitro latemodel roller for this basket case srt.



going to do a slammed suspension setup and will be cutting my own upper and lower decks. pretty strait forward but its a learning experience for me

this one is going to be slow but it will get done

Fiero, how come your camber-links are mounted diagonally? I would think that mounting them that way would cause the geometry to skew when the suspension moves. Shouldn't the outer ends be mounted on the other side of the bearing carriers, or am I missing something?

stadium race truck

traxxas's last 1/10th race truck before they went to rtr entry level cars. the srt is still an extremely competitive truck on small tracks. they used to have a very successful racing program with cars like the blue eagle series, the trx1, the srt, trx3 and tcp (total competition package... factory team version of the trx3) all giving the losi and ae guys a run for their money.

the srt genes can still be seen in the rustler and more specifically the nitro rustler.

joel, it works out and i dont get any camber gain which works for me
