Default Race Rustler

I've been trying to do a search in the electric offroad section for race rustlers but everytime i do a search alls i get is a blank white screen. So anyways i was wondering if there is anyone on here that has a nice race rustler and what all mods. they have done to make it race worthly. i have a rustler and am wanting to make it a pretty extreme racer. please post pictures of your rustler and let me know of any mods you have done and what tire/wheel combo you are using.
Thanks

I'm in the same boat, but what I have found after doing a few races and asking questions and doing some research. Your better off buying a better truck. The 2 issues I found were the handling and the poor rims and tires that crack very easy. Its not that it cant race, I just found it would be easier to buy a better truck and probably cheaper.

This is the best racing rustler I have ever seen and it is also well known with detailed instructions and pictures to help create your own race rustler. If you want something totally different the the trucks at the track I would suggest it doing the transformation. I had something similar and everyone was like what the heck is that?? Its sweet.
Check it out....
