Default Rustler & Rustler VXL Transmission..

Is the normal rustler's transmission and the rustler VXL (or shall i say VXL RANGE) the same? can the normal transmission handle brushless?

The VXL Transmission has a steel diff gear and a steel idler gear. Both of those gears in the regular Rustler tranny are plastic and prone to failure on BL power. The VXL versions hold up very well.
