Default Mudd bogger

I am wanting a good mudd bogger for under $100. I have a Traxxas E-Rustler is there a way to make it a bogger? Or a way to build a cheep bogger?


Thanks

is your rusty the xl-1 or xl-5? my stock xl-1 sucks on anything but pavement i don't thing it would do to good in mud. i have ran it on snow but it had ice on top so my rusty slid all over the place and didn't get any traction at all.

If you want to go mudding get something 4wd with ground clearance, not a 2wd stadium truck.

I have an Xl-1 and it does good anywhere I have taken it so far. What is a good cheep waterproof ESC? Will Maxx tires work on a Rustler? I want something bigger.

Thanks

you won't find anything new for $100, check ebay. i would recommend and traxxas e-maxx, it is electric 4wd and has 3" of ground clearance.

yeah as good as the t and t2 is pretty sure they don't make too good mud boggers. you want some clearance and 4wd to get around the slushy mud. even in packed mud my t2 just spins its tires and digs itself a hole

just got my t2 so have not run it yet but my t does awsome in wet grass and dirt (havent gone crazy mudding but raced out door track day after it rained ) ir really depends on tires and balance of the car

i do think 4wd would be a better idea but price wise its gonna be hard to find a good 4wd cheap

For mud bogging, I'd look at the Tamiya Twin Detonator kit. They can be bought new for around $110. Tower sells them for $130. After discount code, that's only $120. Twin motor 4wd for $120 makes for a good mudder.
