Default boredom + rustler + toy buggy = beach buggy!

so i had this rustler lyin around the house, added some upgrades, FLM rear shock tower, home made front tower, aluminum shocks, RPM bearing carriers..........and had this toy dune buggy for years thought it would be the perfect addition to it. it fit rather well, was able to make the interior tray fit onto the top shelf of the rustler frame and well it just sorta came together.
electronics are basic, only has a 20turn motor in it, but enough to scoot it about.
fit some proline paddles on the rear and she is ready for the beach!

here she is:






now in 3 months when the snow melts ill show ya how she runs.

havent (and probably wont) try it in the snow, cuz the ESC is an older super rooster and its not waterproof. the rustler chassis really leaves the electronics open to the elements. but it'll see sand all summer long im only a five minute drive from two different beaches and lakes.
