    Well, of course! Anyone who does RC is nuts!
    Where do you run; street or dirt?
    Also, you going to gear that way down with the higher spinning motor?

    We mostly run streets, haven't messed with the gearing yet. She hasn't ran it too much. And now she's already looking at other rc's!!!! Lmbo

    RCs are like potato chips; you can't have just one.

    You need another so when one is broken and you're waiting for parts, there's another that's running... :cool:

    *Yeah*...
    That is the one drawback to a Vorteks, the Arrma bodies are pricey.
    You can fit a Rustler body on it.
    Tip though; do not just push the Vorteks into the Rustler body to align the holes.
    There's one more step.
    Mark the holes, then move marks slightly forward.
    I couldn't see it looking down, but when the bodies were on a table, looking side by side at profile, you can see how the Rustler will drop off faster in front and the shock tower gets in the way.
    But you can find Rustler bodies for about $18 on eBay, they seem to be on sale somewhere, every day.
    Once in a while, you will see the obsolete Vorteks bodies on sale at Tower in the Specials section, but you have look like every other day, LOL!
