    I gave my 8 year old a Rusty. I told him to drive it hard and not worry about breakage. I bought RPM replacement parts and told him to go for broke. Its as much fun wrenching as running.

    I have lowered my jato with fuel tubing until there is almost no compression travel. I am also running very stiff springs. It drifts nicely now, but any bumps at all and it is airborne. I have never...

    Lowered for the street.

    Basically stock except I used fuel line to lower it. RPM A-Arms and front bumper for durability. Jaco tires. Its so dusty here nothing hooks well enough to wheelie anyways....

    I had to adjust my LS needle to get it to run for breakin. It got me over the bogging issues I was having at low rpm's.

    I have the Jato 2.2 dish wheels on mine. They are a Traxxas part. I'm not crazy about the fronts though. The bearings don't go in quite right.

    I broke a bulkhead on a tree. It sheared the front left suspension mount off. I was "showing the boy" how to drive his new Rusty.

    I was doing some turns in the street in front of my house yesterday and noticed my rolls began with the inside rear wheel lifting. So I started punching the throttle a little going into the turns. It...

    I think a Rusty with an aftermarket chassis and towers would be as good or better.

    That warning is referred to as a "Prop 65" label in CA. They are so ubiquitous that no one reads them. New cars have them on the window, bars have them on the doors, etc. Traxxas shipped a battery...

    I think a tenbol mount with a 5700kv 540 motor would probably be faster. There's not enough weight in these cars to justify that big a motor.

    What ever you get, order all the RPM parts immediately to make it tougher. I gave my 7 yo a Rustler XL-5. The worst part is waiting for parts when the inevitable happens.

    Go ahead and get RPM A-arms and bumper so you're not shut down too long when the crash happens. Some turnbuckles would be good too.

    I put my Rustler Jacos on my mini-Revo. They worked fine. The offsets were funky. I'd get either 2 sets of fronts or two sets of rears. The gearing was high and needed adjusting. At the time I didn't...
