Default My New Rustler

I just got it 2 weeks ago and this thing is FAST! I have been racing electric rustlers for 11 years and i saw that they came out with the re-done nitro rustler so i got it, and i wont touch my electric again. So my question is, is everyone impressed by it or is this forum site about the losi's and hpi's? im new here.

I got a nitro rustler to and Im happy with it but I've done quite a few mods. Mines got a longer A-arms that widen it a lengthened chassis, (All Aluminum) aluminum shock towers, a TRX 3.3 engine and I have a buggy wing on it. Its consideribly larger and heavier but the added power makes up for it and the better handling is the major advantage.

Dont do this:

However, Traxxas' website says it can do 50+, so if it is broken in and tuned I guess its believable

i just tested my new shock towers and a-arms out and i love them, my truck handles so smoothly now, it made the suspension so much more rigid.
