Duratrax trucks are nothing like Traxxas trucks. The XXT was very similar to the Evader, but neither one was anything like the Rustler. Here is our ongoing Rustler Project, just to give you an idea of what it looks like... www.TeamPlatinumRacing.com/RustlerProject.html
. We just got the rims and tires all mounted and dyed up, now we need internal tranny gears (Aluminum and delrin parts) to complete the tranny. The MIP CVD's we just got will be used in place of the stock driveshafts.
If you want to see a Rustler that will kick good ol' Gabe's Losi on the track, go to www.UltimateTraxxas.com
. Pretty sick Rusty if you ask me!
I don't hate Losi, I actually love Losi. They have their purpose, and Traxxas has their purpose. It's not right to ask a stock Rustler to go out on the track and get first in the B-Main, but then again it isn't fair to ask a stock MF2 to go on top of a set of concrete stairs and drive off at full throttle and survive without breaking something either. The Rusty is a lot stronger, but the MF2 is a lot lighter. The Rusty is also 12 YEARS OLD!!!!!! The MF2 is a newbie compared to the Rustler. It's a basher by nature, not a racer. Get that through your head Gabe.
As for where I got my info.....
And my statement about the TNX...
Ever heard of the RC Pro Series? I didn't think so. What about the Pro=Line MAXX Challenge? Nope, oh well... nobody can be a genious at everything. Looks like R/C just isn't your cup of tea.
