1. Equalizing is also called trickle charging. A pack is only as good as its worst cell. trickle charging balances the cells so they will perform better. I mean every once in a while charge it at a lower amp rate.

2. Both. Racers usually charge their packs at 4 to 6 amps to get the most power but after about 15 cycles, they sell them cheap and the packs aernt nearly as good.

3. Yes, the remote (called transmitter or radio) comes with the rustler. It is a ok one to start out with.

hope that helps.

Alright, Can u tell me one more thing,

1)Does charging on low amps affects the speed of vehicle also? I mean is there any speed difference if I charge at 1 amps. Will I get the same speed like 30 to 35 mph? I have no problem in charging at a low amps because I will only manage to operate the vehicle say 20 minutes a day due to my busy schedule.

2) Do u have any idea if the battery is use with proper care how long it will last? I mean whats the life of this battery and how many time we can charge it?
