You are better off buying the nitro version . You also don`t want an on-road engine to run off-road .

In the end I think he's right. Do a car wash for some extra cash or go marshal at a track. I know a few old farts that pay.

Yup to convert a Rustler to nitro there would almost not be a stock part on the vehicle. So basically almost impossible. You would be better off just getting a complete new car and going from there.
