I know a E-Rustler goes 24+, but how fast can they go? How does this affect runtime? What hop-ups are needed? How much does it cost in the end?

Just to let you know, I Rustler will not go 24 stock. If you want speed, go brushless with good matched battery packs. None of that stick pack crap.

if you read the fine print, they get the 24 mph with a 7 cell.

it will be FINE for racing, but will be lapped by others with better cars. the fact is, you will probably dump a lot of money to keep up. but, as a new person, drive stock for now. when you get better, buy a modified motor, and a 3000 mah batterypack, or cells to match. i used the cheep batterypacks, and they are fine, but when you use matched cells, you WILL notice a diference.

there is a lot, to get raceready, but dont miss the concept, have fun!
good luck!
