Whats kind of motor do you run?
i use the cheaper machine wound motors.some times i over rev them and ruin them so i wont use a very expensive motor.in my car now is a speed gems Onyx.only $29.it is a 14turn double with bearings.these motors last for pretty long if you are careful with them.i check the brushes b4 every run for cracks and stuff and have to change them every 5 or 6 times i run the car.people make drag racing motors that cost $300 and are designed to run as many cells as i do but $300?thats as much as the whole car.
What do you recomend I should use for the rustler..its currently just stock...
electric rustler?thats what my car is.what kind of speed control do you have in it?
Yes,Electric.... its the Traxxas XL-1 electric speed control forward/reverse...
me or timrock?
oops sorry didnt know there were two pages
If you are a beginner and want something fast and controllable get the 4x4 Nitro MT by HPI. That thing is pretty cool and it doesn't flip as much as the rustler. Also later after you get the hang of driving get a stronger motor and there you have it.
did you truck come with the 20turn motor called the Stinger?and do you know how low in turns you can go with that speed control? (A J G 3 3 6)
Yes it is the "Stinger" and I dont know its the stock...
I think 17 Turns and over...http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXJM28&P=7
I think That might be the one that I have in mine now (ESC).
get a speed control that can handle a hotter motor like a 13 turn and get a 13 turn motor.get a speed control that can handle more cells too.and combine an 8 cell pack with a 13 or a 14 turn motor.that will make your Rustler more than fast enough for you.it will HAUL#@$%!then race your friends gas Rustler!it would be a good race if you gear it right.
Lol..cool thanks for all your help...
Do you know any Motors and ESC that have that?

get this stuff! if you got the loot.this will make your Rustler much faster than stock and it is,pretty much, the cheapest way.that better battery will give you more run time and alittle more power but if you can afford it you might also consider getting 3 of the other battery.
Is there another ESC that has brake but is just as equel??
I mean that has reverse not brake...duh
