    nitro sport is pretty much the same as the regular .15 rustler which I at 1 time owned. The 1 I had was excelent the only problem I had was the 1 way bearing slipping after awhile and also the tokes on the tranny had a few problems with that also. The thing was fast might I add.

    Note: You were talking about the Traxxas Nitro sport correct with a TRX .15?

    well I never had to upgrade the motor or anything but maybe some day go for the 2.5, or maybe get the 2.5 rustler? For hopups maybe some differen't shocks might be good to better toon the suspension. To make it lighter I know there is a some graphite you can upgrade it with to lose some weight will increase soeed alittle.

    well if you were to upgrade the engine i wouldnt go with a 2.5 that would be a waste. get a wasp .18. its a lot better then the 2.5. traxxas makes some durable vehicles so i wouldnt upgrade anyhting till it breaks. the truck supposedly goes 38mph which is a lot. if this is your first truck then you will need soem time to get used to that speed before upgrading. but maybe get some ball bearings. i think it comes with bushings stock in the wheels and carriers
