Here go again. Better off spamming your batteries in another forum. Not much traffic here .
You probably should have posted in the off-road section (Rustler is considered off-road truck) and not in the off topic section for more people to see.

If you rely on others for answers, from what I read the Rustler has what two types of battery choices and you must what set up for the battery you want?

Since I don't deal with the other battery you can add a 3S higher Currant and larger cap for what you want, speed as well the speed gear... read the info in the manual at traxxas

off road thread is where rustler threads are or jsu tthis site went down hill.
