Default I found a Traxxas Rustler

I went to my bank and found this Traxxas RC laying in the bushes by the parking lot, looks like a Rustler too me, it must of been ran over cause it has 3 broken shocks and the rear shock tower is broke and 2 of the wheels are broke and cracked with pieces of the rim missing, I wonder if it worth fixing or sell as is for parts, I might look thru my spare parts stash and see if I got some shocks that might work and might have some rims and tires, just got too dig around

Its a brushed Rustler, should be able to get new plastic parts pretty cheap. maybe price up the repairs and see if its worth it.

could always get the LCG chassis kit and build a drag car.....

Alrighty then its almost repaired, I dug thru my stash and found 2 matching shock caps to fix the front stock shocks and found 2 rear Arrma Vortex shocks and put them on, now I just need a rear shock tower and might buy some 2.8 Rustler wheels, cause I found a set Traxxas Tmax 4.8 wheels and might use these old school 2.30 Proline Road Rage tires on Traxxas Stampede rear rims, and keep it low to the ground and run it on the street cause they are paving the streets where I live going too look online for a rear shock tower and price 2.8 wheels and price body's

I took the tranny apart and cleaned and re-greased it and found the spur gear is broke and cracked and I used Apoxie Skulpt too fill in the piece that broke too keep dust and dirt out of the spur gear, and found out the XL ESC was crushed also and the Capacitor looks like it is flatten a little and have not tested it but do think it's toast and found some Gloss Gray paint, it doesn't look that bad actually
