The Rush is an older design now but it still makes a good entry level or newcomers machine especially if found at a good price.

I helped a guy out with his Rush a few years ago and basically upgraded from the standard to the Evo version plus a few extras such as Titanium turnbuckles and RPM rod ends. Was a solid truck.

The pre Evo versions were a bit flexy in the chassis and resulted in the back end slapping the floor alot or twisting and taking spur gear alignment with it. The Evo setup plus shock/spring adjustment took care of that.

The T15 engine wasn't so bad compared to the other engines in the day, I actually liked it compared to the competition RTR engines of the time.

Hope you got a good buy on it, fun truck and different to the Losi/Associated machines if you show up to the track and solid enough to take on Traxxas when bashing.

OK then. Just ease up to the cerb and then punch it so it will pop over it. No high speed shots. None of 'em can stand up to that.
