I'm thinking about buying a traxxas rustler..
Do you guys think it's a good buy?
It's pretty good, but I went with the team associated t3 ruck. More option parts.
yeah, but also more $$
true. The traxxas rustler is fine, but if you want a 4wd electric, go with the hpi electric mt. I have the nitro version, and it is really good. I don't know how much it is.
but there is no EP version of the MT
Ohh, my bad. It is because it is discontinued. See, there was one.
oh yeah, you're right.. I've seen that one a while ago..
Too bad they don't exist anymore
Ebay... they are still (at times) in bulk for cheap.
As for my thoughts on the rustler... the only worth while Traxxas products are T-maxx 2.5, E-Maxx, and the Revo. The HPI E MT is an amazing truck. It was just recently (like, 4 months top) discontinued. But im not a big fan of the rustler unless you do the AWD dual engine mod.
I don't have very mutch money, and I don't live in the US...
the dutch ebay doesn't have mutch to offer
And i'm gonna buy a e-maxx for my bithday
Lol... had to add the e-maxx thing in a new post, couldnt edit? Lol...
Anyway, i understand the dutch ebay doesnt have much... but i still wouldnt go with a rustler. They are poopy... If anything, go with a T2 or B2 or something old that you can find cheap thats a buggy or truck and jack the suspension. I can get my RC10T to the height of the rustler, but mines much more reliable and just a better truck overall.
And yeah, forgot the edit part
Oh associated, i see.

And what about the DuraTrax evader?
Does anyone else know a good buggy-truck EP? (RTR)
Lol.. havin fun with edit?
Heres a list of buggys...
Duratrax Evader BX
List of Trucks...
Then you have...
Yup, BIG fun..
I found a RS4 MT on an other dutch auction site..
I'll check that out
Oh S**t, now that I think of it, AHHHHHH! Aint got enough money!!!
get a stamped they are really really fun almost as fun as driftin and they are damn near indestructible and did i mention fairly affordable!
i launch mine all the time like 20 feet plus and i have never broke it. just the slider set screw has come loose and i have stripped tons of spurs. the price you pay landing on throttle after a 20 foot launch
