    Drove the demo

    My boss has his own hobbyshop and got the Rustler 4x4 demo in. I was able to talk him into really getting the rustler out and driving it,not just in the parking lot but in the dirt..

    The truck is fun on 2s. jumps well and drifts pretty good also. The suspension seemed a little soft dampening wise but the shocks did do their job.

    This thing is crazy on 3s but might need a fan on the motor and a gear change. The only thing i didnt like about it is the stock servo. Its slow and doesnt like to come back to center. Other then that i look forward to driving it more.

    One of the YouTube videos show the Rustler 4x4 at 64mph! They said it was geared 20/54. I have no idea how that motor would still alive without strong fans on the motor and esc.

    Lol, 20/54 is probably like, the included speed gearing or something. Fine for a few quick passes, but then ya gotta let the motor cool. I would probably swap to a different motor in this, something that runs a little cooler to begin with.
