    Question about purchasing new Rustler

    I just had a few questions about the Rustler electric rc.

    On the website there is a $169.99 version of the car that doesn't include a battery or a charger.

    The next step up of the Rustler is $209.99 and looks like it comes with a car charger and Nimh battery.

    I was wanting to use a Lipo battery instead of a Nimh battery and the EZ-Peak Plus charger instead of the DC car charger.

    So my question is does the Lipo battery require a special adapter? The 209.99 says it's ID battery ready so if I buy the 169.99 version and buy the lipo battery plus the charger will I be able to plug a Lipo battery into the car right from the box?

    No adapter is needed. Just make sure the esc is in lipo mode (red light nimh mode, green light lipo mode). Just make sure battery you purchase has traxxas connector.

    Your post is under Rustler 4x4. The two prices you quote are for the 2wd models. The 4x4 is $319 and the 4x4VXL is $379.
