Now on to the upgrades to make your ECX Ruckus truck even better! Doing so will give you much longer run times but also add noticeable power to the ECX Ruckus. LiPo would be my first choice, but be sure to read the caution below. Next, upgrade the 4x AA Transmitter batteries - For the included transmitter. My recommendation would be to get a pack of Eneloop rechargeable batteries. Either the Panasonic Eneloop or Eneloop Pro even higher capacity, longer run time.

Suspension The suspension on the Ruckus is actually pretty good. It can take quite a bit of abuse, but two areas that eventually need attention are the shocks and the suspension arms. These delightful dampers will certainly soften up the ride and help keep all 4 wheels on the ground. This little box plug-and-play box plugs into an open port in your receiver and offers 25 different engine sounds to choose from — everywhere from a turbocharged 4-banger with blow-off valve sound to a healthy-sounding V8.
The speaker unit is 3. It actually revs up and down in unison with the throttle and has a nice idle when the truck is standing still. Definitely something to add a spark of cool to any trail truck. This replaces the idler gear, topshaft gear and differential gear with metal counterparts. If installed, this will also allow you to tighten the slipper clutch down a bit for maximum forward traction.
This body comes clear so you can paint it however you like. It is also one of the more popular trail truck bodies out there with lots of scale details molded into the body, plus lots of aftermarket goodies that can be bolted on. The only issue with this body is wheelbase — the Ruckus sports a mm wheelbase while the Proline Jeep body is good for mm.
The wheels are from their 2. This also removes the need to glue the tires. I have a few of these bars on some vehicles and they look outstanding! A long lead feeds from the bar down and into an open port on your receiver. The lights come on when you turn your truck on, and will look great perched on top of the Jeep Wrangler body. Additional light bars in different colors are also available so you can add a front or rear LED light bar While his ECX Ruckus trail truck conversion works great on a 2WD, it would also be a fantastic conversion for the 4WD Ruckus as well.
Hopefully this will get you started on a great rebuild of this truck. Like to see another car featured?
