    i use the cheaper machine wound motors.some times i over rev them and ruin them so i wont use a very expensive motor.in my car now is a speed gems Onyx.only $29.it is a 14turn double with bearings.these motors last for pretty long if you are careful with them.i check the brushes b4 every run for cracks and stuff and have to change them every 5 or 6 times i run the car.people make drag racing motors that cost $300 and are designed to run as many cells as i do but $300?thats as much as the whole car.

    If you are a beginner and want something fast and controllable get the 4x4 Nitro MT by HPI. That thing is pretty cool and it doesn't flip as much as the rustler. Also later after you get the hang of driving get a stronger motor and there you have it.

    get a speed control that can handle a hotter motor like a 13 turn and get a 13 turn motor.get a speed control that can handle more cells too.and combine an 8 cell pack with a 13 or a 14 turn motor.that will make your Rustler more than fast enough for you.it will HAUL#@$%!then race your friends gas Rustler!it would be a good race if you gear it right.

    get this stuff! if you got the loot.this will make your Rustler much faster than stock and it is,pretty much, the cheapest way.that better battery will give you more run time and alittle more power but if you can afford it you might also consider getting 3 of the other battery.
