    Traxxas Rustler with working 2 speed

    I've seen this asked a couple of times so I thought I'd share how I put a 2 speed in my Traxxas Rustler. Some background: This was my first nitro RC. I've been working on cars all my life but my background is IT and Engineering. I got the stadium truck from my dad. He bought it probably close...

    "Frankenstein Rustler" 2 speed tranny.

    Hey Nitro R.C. lovers! Today I bring you guys the "Frankenstein Rustler" which was made out of 2 used cars (Rustler and Jato) and a few new parts.. I wanted it to look different than the regular Rustler (grey upper chassis) and since the Jato's tranny is black I decided to black out as much as...

    Rustler VXL 2WD shocks and drive shafts recommendations

    Well, I had a driveshaft that kept popping off when doing even small jumps. U joint would pull apart right by the tranny on slip clutch side. It never broke but was worn where it was pulling out. I moved the camber link to too hole, got new tires and did not have anymore issues. Doing a speed...

    Rusty Gets A Rebuild 4

    The fiberglass chassis is gone. The MIP CVD drive shafts are swapped. The hubs are replaced with new FLM hardware. I converted the hubs to the Jato setup years ago. It limited wheel selection. He's coming along.

    Rusty Gets A Rebuild

    I bought my first hobby grade RTR in 2006, the Traxxas Rustler XL10. It's been through hell and back too many times to mention. I've upgraded it many times over the years. There are actually no original pieces left on it but it still has that Rusty soul. Now he gets the thorough makeover that he...

    Brushless setup for reliable hot weather bashing?

    I have an old Rustler XL-5 that my son has become comfortable enough with that I'd like to upgrade the motor and REC to make it more interesting. I live in East Texas so it can get ridiculously hot. I'm not looking to set land speed records. A legitimate 40mph is sufficient. My primary...

    Question re: new Rustler VXL slipper clutch

    Hey all, Issue 1: I bought a Rustler VXL and I noticed, when the power is off, if I push the car it rolls for a split second, then I get a little resistance, then it rolls, then resistance, and repeat.

    Nitro rustler fuel tank and cap

    I was wondering what aftermarket fuel caps will fit the rustler 75cc tank. I'd like to get a nice shiny gold one. Also was wondering what larger tanks could be fit to the truck. I'll change tank if needed, but really just want a better sealing cap than the stock one. Thanks in advance
