Ready to Rustle: Here's Why the Traxxas Rustler Is Your Truck of Choice

You're big into RC trucks. They're fun to run, a great test of skill, and are overall a great way to spend the day.
That being said, you want to make sure you get the best there is in radio controlled trucks. No longer are you satisfied with the discounted 2-wheel drives in Wal-Mart; you want something that spells power and is meant to last.

Look no further than the Traxxas Rustler.

The Rustler by Traxxas has the ability to take on anything you can throw at it - and then ask for more. If you're really serious about the RC vehicles you drive, then you'll want to read our article to learn more about this Traxxas stadium truck.

The Traxxas Rustler Has a Need for Speed

First thing to know: the Rustler's primary function wasn't to be built for swiftness. Second thing to know: it'll still unleash a can of cheetah speed.

The Rustler RC car kind of reminds one of an actual pickup truck. Even though it isn't meant to burn rubber, it can still throw some heat out on the road.

This truck has top speeds of up to 35 MPH, meaning it can hang with any vehicle you want to compare it to. What's more, its body is built to be low and wide, making it stable and able to take turns easier - even at full speeds.

Feel like 35 MPH isn't quite enough? Switch out the battery for a stronger one, and you'll be able to reach speeds upwards of 60 MPH.

No complaints there, huh?

Drive All Day Long

Are you tired of those RC cars that run out of steam in under an hour? Then you have to go back indoors and charge it up for the rest of the day?

Yeah, they're pretty good at killing all of the fun.

With the Rustler, you won't have to worry about any of that happening to you. The folks at HQ decided they didn't want their vehicle to be known as The Truck that Sucked, and one way they set out to prove that was through their battery.

The battery on this Traxxas stadium truck is simply insane. With a 3000mAh, 8.4v battery, it's bound to give you hours of racing fun before it has to be charged up again.

Want to know the best part? It comes with an adapter that has accelerated charging speeds, so before you know it you'll be right back outside racing on the same day.

How's that for all day energy?

It's Waterproof!

There was a time when you would drive a RC car through a water puddle or a splotch of mud and it would die down almost instantly.

It was yesterday, at your house - and that RC was your car.

There are few things more frustrating than having an RC vehicle that isn't made to take on the elements. If you wanted to drive your car, you would have to wait for the optimal weather to come along and the best dry land to run on.

With those strict conditions, you'll be waiting for quite some time before you have a chance to run your car. Or (maybe even worse) you would have to spend hundreds trying to find the best way to customize your car for the elements.

Instead of dealing with all of that hassle, why not just get an RC that's more equipped for those not-so-perfect days? Luckily, the folks at HQ knew what was best and were two steps ahead of the game.

The Rustler comes waterproof right out of the case, no questions asked. That means from the first time you're ready to race, you and throw that bad boy right into the largest rain puddle you can find, and it'll come out without a scratch.

Feeling like more of a daredevil? This truck can take on all of the wettest conditions. Its able to go through the deepest of mud holes and the thickest snow - and still come out on top.

Much Greater Control

You know how your current RC has to make a U-turn bigger than your house just to make its way back to you? That ends today.

This Traxxas truck is the definition of control. One could even argue that control was at the forefront of its make qualifications.

First off, it has wheelie bars on both the front and the back of the truck, so you won't have to worry about wiping out if you start off fast or brake quickly.

Secondly, the Rustler is shaped lower to the ground, giving it more stability and the user more freedom of movement. The chances of it rolling onto its back are slim, which means less time spent trying to flip it back over.

We also need to keep the powerful controls in mind as well. The controller and the truck communicate at a frequency of 2.4GHz and the range that can be had between the two is nothing short of insane.

Finally, with 12-point turning (yeah, you read that right) you can move your truck with some powerful torque, instead of watching it bumble around like a primitive piece of junk (sorry, not sorry).

Case and point: the Traxxas stadium truck is made for anything that you plan to throw at it, whether it's racing, challenging the elements, or just driving all day. Do yourself a favor and get one of your own.
