i researched, and think its what i want, but what i was trying to ask was;
owners of these rustlers, are they any good? do you regret buying them? i have a feeling that it will be good since its traxxas, but i dont know yet, cause the truck is still shipping.

Im sure it will be fine. It really depends on what you are trying to do. if you want to race at a world class level then obviously no. But for backyard bashing it will be great.

Yep. Ultimate traxxas is a great resource. The trucks are more suited to bashing but follow the advice on that site and you'll have a great time racing it as well.

Might not be trouncing any T4s soon, but you can sure as heck be biting at their heels!

And its great fun designing your own parts for the truck... lol, i wouldnt be taking to a T4 with a dremel in a blue fit! But a 10 dollar rusty shock tower? Bring it on!
