any stalling is bad, richen it up some, dont have other peple tune it for you (i dont trust other people, essecialy my lhs guys) but i dont think 20$ was worth it, you can get it tuned for free by talking to use, richen it up so it wont stall

I suppose you'd have to rely on honesty from the seller on that one.
Welcome to the world of the Nitro Rustler. You're in for a learning experience. I think you'll enjoy it. There are some good articles here at Traxxas with tips for tuning your engine. As they stated earlier... it may be worn out. It may just be out of tune though. Play around with it and see what happens. Good luck!

Rims are a thing of the past for the most part, although some new companies are looking into them now. I believe New Era has a set available, but I've never seen or heard anything about them from someone who owns a set.
Mine is all aluminum from RD Racing Products. (http://www.rdracingproducts.com) It's a thing of beauty.
I have rims from RC-Parts (http://rc-parts.com) and they're awesome but no longer available. They do still have the bellcranks though. I'd recommend getting a set before they're gone.
