awsome fast but i found the hpi rush evo to be a little stronger and faster just a little but i love the duratrax evader rtr ST its fast and makes a good racerm outta the box unlike the rush evo .. rush needs alot of hop ups to become a good racer and thats what im working on :P noone has a rush evo and im showing them what hpi's cheapest truck is all about

I loved the Evader but the tranny was weak. But I knew others that had the truck and didn't have the problem. It handles great out of the box though.

By weak I mean this.........Chameleon 2 pro 19t, 20 tooth pinion, Bow Tie rear tires. I stripped the idler gear after 3 or 4 packs every time. I got to the point that I just put the truck on the shelf since I had a T3 also. Not saying it's a bad truck just watch out for that idler gear.
