I remember Hara racing the Rush at several races. He did fairly well if I remember right, for a on-road guy.

It will be legal for racing. The truck itself isn't up to racing at a high level of competition, but it'll be fine at a local club race.

you shouldnt have to change your engine either. most local places will let you run a .15 if its the original engine in a RTR car. call and ask the track before you drop money on a new engine.

I think the question is, are you a serious racer or a basher that likes to race every so often?

Unless you're racing in IFMAR(whoever sanctions Nitro Offroad races) Sanctioned race, a Nitro Rush should be fine for small club racing, and I hear that the chassis bend problem has been resolved.

Some may not agree, but I have had nothing but problems with all of my Hitec Servos. I'd go with a JR Z590M servo. I'll post a link in awhile.

The GT has had more racing success. The Rush really isn't meant for racing as much as it is a play truck.
