The Nitro Rustler is the first name in high-performance 2WD nitro stadium trucks. Powered by the proven performance of the TRX 2.5 Racing Engine, Nitro Rustler totally out-muscles the competition with top speeds beyond 50 mph! The TRX 2.5 also pumps out the torque for brutal, wheel-standing launches and absolutely ruthless acceleration. The all-new body design cheats the wind with its smooth curves and low-slung stance, while the outrageous new graphics dominate with style. The separate wing securely bolts to the new body with precise aluminum hex hardware. Chrome 2.8 Twin Spoke™ rims are wrapped with pre-glued Alias™ step-pin tires in the rear and Alias ribbed tires up front. The high-tech rubber compound ensures great grip on a variety of surfaces. New gray-molded composite parts are thoughtfully integrated to enhance the look of the chassis. Nitro Rustler is not only built to perform with its adjustable slipper clutch, disc brake, and race-inspired suspension geometry, it’s also built Traxxas Tough™ for all-day driving fun. The rugged 6061-T6 aluminum chassis forms a rock-solid backbone. Full rubber-sealed ball bearings provide the ultimate protection and low maintenance for nitro environments. The Magnum 281™ transmission uses a planetary gear differential with built-to-last hardened steel gears. The Gear diff is virtually maintenance free and never needs adjusting. The oil-filled Ultra Shocks™ use exclusive X-ring seal technology for reduced friction and superior leak resistance. Traxxas makes nitro easy so that anyone can experience the hard-charging action and intense driving excitement Nitro Rustler delivers.
