    Question New rustler? 4x4 vxl?

    Is there a new rustler coming to the scene? Possibly 4x4 vxl? Its pictured as the New vxl rustler on the traxxas website.

    Don't see that on the Traxxas' site, there is a picture of an E-Revo. It would be cool if they did, but really it would be a 4WD Stampede chassis with Sl4sh arms and Rustler tires.

    It was on there this morning. I think that it was on purpose just to get everyone amped up. They'll probably announce it before too long.

    I don't mind. Thats exactly what I want. All the pieces already put together. Sure, you could easily build it. Thats whats fun about traxxas but in doing so pay 2/3rds of the cost more. I'd rather just buy it and have a reliable 1/10 truggy. Yes, I said reliable. Ive been running traxxas since the white days and race a slash platinum every saturday night. Love it!

    I think they should have come up with a new name. Even for the 4X4 stampede. It can be confusing for the average user looking for parts. JMHO

    The Ruslter 4x4 is very, very real. Traxxas is letting dealers sign up to get first deliverly trucks by mid September, and from what I can get at it looks like they should be on shelves in October.

    EDIT: There's a brushed version and a VXL version both expected early Oct ETA.

    !!!!!! Thats awesome! I love how much Traxxas has been doing in the past 2 years. Like releasing new cars left, right, and center, new body paint jobs, etc. Its been awesome.

    I wouldn't get your hopes up until I saw the actual product. Lot wrong with that pic, namely the price and no mention of 4x4 in the name. The difference between the Stampede and Slash 2wd vxl and 4wd vxl is at least $50 minimum. They aren't going to release a 4wd version for the same price listed as the 2wd. I think it's just an updated 2wd with a new body and tires. The way the pic is angled you can't see the rear motor mount. or maybe its a new mid mount system or something. but I doubt it's 4x4 from one pic and again, the listed price.

    I may be wrong but I would wait til they actually post the official product before getting hype.

    Regardless of the model though, I hope they sell that new E-revo style body with the reinforced plastic on top in clear separately and it uses the same mounting! I wants one.

    Trust me, it's an actual 4x4 chassis. The brushed one coming out later this year is going to be around $299 and the VXL one coming in a month or so will be around $370-$400.

    I think the give a way is the reinforced lid. Looks like it'll have self righting capability, which is difficult with a 2 wheel drive power train.
    And it says 4x4 on the body under Rustler next to VXL

    We dont know if they'll fit the standard 2wd yet but if they do I'll be looking into that long as they sell the body clear though. I want to paint it myself.

    Also interested in those tires on it. No part# on the site yet.

    Looking at it the chassis looks awful close to a lcg slash chassis! Still, I'll end up with one.... or build one ha!

    Here is the official video

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?list=P...&v=2e1tBEFt1WI

    Looks cool. I really like the wing... Clipless body... meh... The webpage says "all new chassis", looks like an updated 4wd Pede chassis. Self-righting... guessing they figure the driveshafts won't break like they do in the X-Maxx?

    The video was great, looks like it was a VXL on 3S, this will give the TSM module a workout.

    Lcg from 2wd slash mixed with 4wd pede chassis otherwise like a slammed 4wd pede but just like the 2wd pede and rustler the 4wd rustler has a longer wheelbase.

    They're not the normal 4x4 Slash/Stampede # 6852X/6851X shafts, they're new. They look to be much thicker and beefy too.

    Those shafts look a little short, like bandit length almost. Still though, plastic... imagine they'll be a little weak once you put in a 3s. Is the truck based on the Stampede 4x4 chassis? I kinda wanna sell my Bandit and build this.

    Ah, looks like the Rustler 4x4 uses a "new chassis" but it is actually almost identical to the Rally chassis. Just rearranged a couple of things, like receiver box is the standard 2wd box. Changed the battery compartment, for what looks to me like the worse if anything. Might be just slightly smaller than the Rally battery compartment, don't think it will be that big of a deal though.

    Would like to see a size comparison to the E-Revo 2.0 and the R4stler, Because I'm interested in the revo 2.0 but if this is going to be "better" than I'd get this



    Wolfslash16 Trust me, it's an actual 4x4 chassis. The brushed one coming out later this year is going to be around $299 and the VXL one coming in a month or so will be around $370-$400.
    Also would like to know when the XL-5 version is going to come out. I've already got all the electronics so i would just swap them and save a little bit of $. What would be best is a Platinum Edition like they did with the slash 4x4.

    So is this still based on the Stampede 4x4 / Slash 4x4 platform overall in terms of parts commonality? I mean obviously some parts are different, just like Stampede vs Slash but being able to use parts out of my existing spare parts bag means a lot.

    The size difference in wheel base it's between the slash and stamped

    Stampede 4x4 10.83 in
    Slash 4x4 12.75 in
    Rustler 4x4 11.62 in
