Had my ECX Ruckus delivered today!

Immediately zip-tied the steering servo.

Bound it to my DX4C and ran it a bit.

Currently swapping out the brushed setup for a 60amp Hobbywing ESC and a 36x58 3600KV motor. Adjusted the ESC tray and the battery hold down tabs to fit a hardcase lipo, then modded the hold down itself to better clear the wires since I have the two foam pads towards the front of the battery tray.

Up next is gorilla taping the interior of the body.

I definitely want some better tires. Probably trenchers since I can pick those up locally.

From there, see how things go... may throw my SRS4210 in it to have AVC and put it's SR310 into my Mugen. (Don't use the AVC in my buggy)

I mounted up a set of 2.8 Badlands on my 4x4 Torment today.

My body is already torn to pieces and I think I going to go ahead and do a buggy / truggy conversion.

Gobs of grip on dusty / sandy hard pack and more sky wheelies than I could count today!!

Went through another rpm steering block for my ruckus. The fine threaded shoulder screws ripped right out, lost those. Put a new set of the screws in only to have them fallout within minutes, even superglued them. Sucks, rpm wont warranty stripped plastics and the steering blocks are only sold in a set

Yeah, that is the single worst part on the 2wd ECXs, the shoulder screws. I replaced the front hub carriers with rears (rotated 90 degrees) and put a bolt and nut through. Widens the front track but then I swap front and rear hexes and voila.

Also have another set of hub carriers from a BZ-444 that I managed to get to fit to the ecx caster blocks. Anything's better than stock. And the idiotic shoulder screws that come in a pack of 10 or whatever and only 4 of them fit.

I still have to cut out and apply some decals.
I might end up trimming the body more to get it to sit deeper on the chassis......

I upgraded the heck out of my AMP DB. Kinexis brushless combo, aluminum parts and shocks, TrackStar Tx/Rx.

And then I drove it straight into a wall... lol.
