Active and energetic, the Traxxas Rustler is one outstanding stadium truck! Built to be fast, tough and ultimately, fun, Rustler is built to bash! Its fibre-composite tub chassis with inline battery holder and quick-release battery mount forms the main structure of the chassis and is rigid and strong. A brushless-ready Magnum 272 sealed ballraced transmission is bolted to this and contains hardened steel gears for long-lasting performance. Strong yet lightweight telescoping drive shafts transfer power to the wheels, which can propel the Rustler along at 35+ mph, out of the box! Power is supplied by the ever-reliable Titan 12T 550 motor, which features an internal fan for improved cooling. The revolutionary XL-5 electronic speed controller is coupled to this and features 'EZ-Set' one button setting, plus 3 mode settings (Training/Sport/Race) that can be matched to your increasing skill level. A responsive Traxxas 2056 high-torque laydown steering servo lowers the centre of gravity and aids stability. This, like all the Rustler's onboard electronics are waterproofed, so you can safely run through water, mud and even snow without worry - something few other RC vehicles are capable of! Power without control however is wasted, so the Rustler also includes a Revo-spec Torque-control slipper clutch, easily adjusted to ensure the maximum power is delivered without unwanted wheelspin! Also, independently mounted Ultra oil-filled shocks soak up the bumps and are connected to fibre-composite suspension arms for the smoothest ride!
