The Traxxas Rustler is a great truck for beginners to experts. It's SUPER durable and really fun. I've flipped it countless times and it has been fine. I had some trouble with the included battery. It only charges for about 6 to 7 houres but the manual says it has to charge for 8 and half hours - but it doesn't affect run time at all. In all, it's a great truck and I highly reccomend it to any one who is interested in getting into the RC hobby!

Traxxas Rustler is AWESOME and Amazingly Durable!
I bought this as my very first hobby rc car. I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase.To start off, this car is INCREDIBLY DURABLE! I have rolled it, jumped it, smashed it into trees(accidentally), and done donuts to no end, and so far the only part I have broke was the front wheel carrier when I smashed into a board.It is very fast but very easy to drive.This car is the most fun I've ever had!Please know, however, that the stock Titan 12T motor WILL burn out. So please be prepared to buy either more Titan motors or the Velineon Brushless system.My Titan 12T motor burned out, so I figured it was useless to keep buying more of them. I purchased the Velineon brushless system, and now the Rustler will pop wheelies on command! AMAZING!My one and only gripe is that the rear tires wear down really fast, so you will have to buy more tires. (I would buy the Monster Jam tires!)There are a few things you should purchase with this car. Right away, you should buy a fast charger for the battery(I bought the EZ Peak and it works great!) A fast charger is an absolute must, because the wall charger takes SIX HOURS! (Even though it says EIGHT hours...)Next you should buy a second battery, because its unbearable having to wait for your battery to charge, since it is SO much fun! With two batteries, you can have one charging while you play with the other.And you should also buy some extra body clips....I kept losing them in the dirt.This is a FANTASTIC car for beginners(like me), but if you are experienced in this hobby, you should definitely buy the VXL Brushless Rustler to start with.This hobby is totally worth the money. I will definitely be buying more Traxxas products in the future!Oh, and one other thing...it is very easy to fix when and if you break it!

A great car for RC enthuisasts
This car is a ton of fun, very durable and easily repaired with spare parts if you break something. It is great for doing jumps, drifting and all-around dirt racing. It charges with in 30-45 minutes, has great shocks and is definitely waterproof.See all 24 customer reviews...
