This is the 1/10 scale Traxxas Nitro Rustler 2WD with a 2.4GHz TQ Radio System and a TRX 2.5 Racing Engine included.
The all new Traxxas Nitro Rustler is the first name in 2WD high performance nitro stadium trucks. Powered by the proven performance of the TRX 2.5 Racing Engine, the Nitro Rustler completely out-muscles the competition with top speeds that reach beyond 50 mph! The TRX 2.5 Racing Engine also pumps out the torque for absolutely ruthless acceleration and intense, wheel-standing launches. The Nitro Rustler’s all-new body design cheats the wind with its low-slung stance and smooth curves, while the its outrageous new graphics dominate with style. The Rustler’s separate wing securely bolts to its new body with precise aluminum hex hardware.
The Nitro Rustler features Chrome 2.8 Twin Spoke rims that are wrapped with pre-glued Alias step-pin tires in the rear and Alias ribbed tires up front. The high-tech rubber compound provides you with great grip on a wide variety of surfaces. New grey-molded composite parts are thoughtfully integrated to enhance the look of the chassis. Fast, light, and loaded with power, the Traxxas Nitro Rustler's dirt roosting, power-sliding attitude will have you reaching for the throttle again and again.
The Nitro Rustler's TRX 2.5 Racing Engine is nothing short of stunning. It is by far the most advanced engine in its class and comes loaded with all of the newest and hottest performance hardware. The trick porting, two-needle composite slide carburetor, and free-flowing rear exhaust deliver class-leading horsepower and high-revving speeds (over 50mph!). Plus only Traxxas has the true push-button starting safety and convenience of the EZ-Start Electric Starting System. Traxxas makes nitro so easy that anyone can experience the intense driving excitement and hard-charging action that the Nitro Rustler delivers. Hammer the throttle anywhere in the power band and Nitro Rustler responds with searing acceleration and the sound of pure, high-revving nitro power.
With the included TQ 2.4GHz radio system, you simply switch on and drive. You’ll never have to worry about frequencies or channels to manage, so the focus is on having fun. The TQ’s sleek lines are enhanced by an internal antenna that is impervious to damage and its ergonomic design is comfortable for all-day driving. To customize the Traxxas Nitro Rustler’s controls, the transmitter’s factory servo directions can be easily reversed through the simple programming system.
The all new Nitro Rustler is not only built to perform with its disc brake, adjustable slipper clutch, and race-inspired suspension geometry, it's also built Traxxas Tough for all-day driving fun. The Traxxas Nitro Rustler's robust design keeps annoying breakage to a minimum so that the action can keep going on and on. Full rubber-sealed ball bearings provide the ultimate protection and low maintenance for nitro environments. The Rustler’s rugged 6061-T6 aluminum chassis forms a rock-solid backbone that also draws heat away from the engine. The gear diff requires no time-consuming adjustment and is virtually maintenance free. The Magnum 281 transmission uses a planetary gear differential with built-to-last hardened steel gears. The oil-filled Ultra Shocks use exclusive X-ring seal technology for reduced friction and superior leak resistance. Traxxas engineers are dedicated to keeping you on the throttle, not on the workbench.
