Depends on how you drive it, and how much money you want to spend. Are you driving on a track, or over open country? My rustler has a 19 turn, and will not stick to the corners at the local track, but over open terrain it kicks a**! They are tough as nails to.

I agree with vegas mossie. The Rustler is a good choice, and it can be raced.

Rustlers are great trucks. To see their full potential check out this website. They cover the entire Traxxas line.

UltimateTraxxas.com

I just bought my rustler and I can't wait to modify it.

Default My 2 Cents Worth

I like Traxxas, but the Rustler is freakin' slow! Besides, it's just not worth upgrading a Rustler so it can race. I reccomend getting a Losi XXX-T Spec truck. They don't cost too much, and they are lots of fun.
