    true. The traxxas rustler is fine, but if you want a 4wd electric, go with the hpi electric mt. I have the nitro version, and it is really good. I don't know how much it is.

    Ebay... they are still (at times) in bulk for cheap.

    As for my thoughts on the rustler... the only worth while Traxxas products are T-maxx 2.5, E-Maxx, and the Revo. The HPI E MT is an amazing truck. It was just recently (like, 4 months top) discontinued. But im not a big fan of the rustler unless you do the AWD dual engine mod.

    Lol... had to add the e-maxx thing in a new post, couldnt edit? Lol...

    Anyway, i understand the dutch ebay doesnt have much... but i still wouldnt go with a rustler. They are poopy... If anything, go with a T2 or B2 or something old that you can find cheap thats a buggy or truck and jack the suspension. I can get my RC10T to the height of the rustler, but mines much more reliable and just a better truck overall.

    get a stamped they are really really fun almost as fun as driftin and they are damn near indestructible and did i mention fairly affordable!
    i launch mine all the time like 20 feet plus and i have never broke it. just the slider set screw has come loose and i have stripped tons of spurs. the price you pay landing on throttle after a 20 foot launch
