it's never good to put too much money into a nitro rustler, if your wanting to go faster, upgrade to some other kit.

I used to work at hobby town and I watched everyone with a sport rustler, electric or nitro hop them up and pour an insane amount of money into them. only to find out that a car like that can't handle the speed. then they wished they saved their money and invested in something else.
