Brash by BIGWORDS – Bulletproofed Traxxas Rustler to STRC LCG Slash Conversion

Brash – Bulletproofed Rustler to STRC LCG Slash Conversion by BIGWORDS

When you think of BIGWORDS, we hope you think “Fast, Cheap, and Easy”.  And just in case you don’t already, we think you will after watching our latest video.

To prove how great BIGWORDS is at finding just about anything cheaper, we decided to take a relatively inexpensive R/C car, and convert it to the ultimate back yard bashing short course truck.

Introducing the BIGWORDS Brash, the toughest, meanest, orangest RC truck on this or any other block.

We took a Traxxas Rustler, applied just about every bulletproofing (toughening) part available, extended its chassis using the ST Racing Concepts low center of gravity slash conversion kit, and built what we think is the roughest, toughest, fastest, meanest, and surest-footed basher anywhere.  Well, at least around here.

This truck is intended to jump and land on its feet.  It’s intended to roll back over when it flips.  It’s intended to take an absolute hammering and not break.

Oh, and we built it for 37% less than the LHS (local hobby shop) using the price comparison for RC hobby products.

BTW – we have a LOAD of “BIGWORDS BRASH” stickers.  If you want some for your truck, request stickers here.  It should be a bash-proof slash LCG Slash conversion, but on the other hand hey, we’re just glad you’re askin’ :-).
