Traxxas Rustler. Similar to my Bandit

I have had 2 of those, gave one to my team mate, and have enough to build one more from parts. Those are probably one of the most bash worthy trucks avalible. They just don't quit!

There isn't a speed control, but those are easy enough to get, and the answer to your question is...Yes, I do find that worth $40. The tires may be something that you would want to replace, because they are pretty primitave, and have no inserts, but other than that, it looks ready to accept your speed control, and mabey a new motor. Definatly worth it. If you need more information, send me a PM.

I'm sorry, I never actually went in to detail, it is a stadium truck, unlike my Bandit which is a buggy. My "Buggy" has had some extreme hop up's installed however. It isn't anything like a stock Traxxas vehicle anymore. The only difference between my Bandit and that Rustler, is that my Bandit has shorter front and rear A-arms, and camber links, shorter drive shafts, different factory tires, and a different factory body. Other than that, all parts are interchangable.

BTW: Traxxas makes the Rustler.



Edit: Also, it would probably be a good idea to replace the stock bushings that come with the truck, with some good oversized bearings. In order to install the oversized bearings, you will need RPM's oversized bearing carriers (RPM part #: 80372 Fronts, 80382 Rears). This little upgrade gets rid of a lot of play in the wheels, and performs better than stock bearing carriers, with smaller bearings. Hope this helps!
