Look like Traxxas Nitro Rustler arms up front and Bandit in the rear?

RC10T? If so, get a taller front shock tower, and longer front shocks.

You can see he already has the RC10T front end.

The car looks great! The front shock tower I'm using would be perfect for your car.

This may be a dumb question but what is different about the inner arm mounts that you made VS. the stock Associated parts?

Could you post a pic of the bottom of the car, a pic with the body off, and also perhaps a pic with the wheels off?

Biggest difference in arm mount is zero degree toe-in. Arm itself has 3 deg.
Arm mount location is also fine-tuned for B4 bone lenght. As you can see from the picture (with stock inner hinge pins) RPM arm should use shorter pins. This also affects arm mount design.

DO you have to use Associated part # 7305 nose plate
for the long arms up front.. Or can you use the stock worlds front end

At least wheel nuts are outside 250mm. When I measured it with B4 front rims alone it was 250mm sharp on ground level. With wide tyres it's outside 250 for sure but maybe with ribs it's ok.

This has been extremely helpful as I have been digging and digging for an RPM front arm replacement for my RC10GT project.
Considering the front end of this is nearly entirely RC10T / GT
I should be able to just throw the RPM Nitro Rustler arms on my GTE Basher build with relative ease correct?
