Is the Nitro Rustler ready for racing?
try posting that in the nitro rustler forum, as for your question, no.
Dude thats what were in. Also it depends on what kind of racing your talkin' about.plain old hobby shop races, yes. Professional, off road races, no.
Well, I can say tha you can run out the box, but you will brake some parts, like shock tower and shocks.
My R/C garage
Serpent 710, Team Losi XXXNT, HPI Micro, 2 Trinity Reflex NT, C&Y 1/8 Sacker Buggy, 1/8 Picco Integra and an Electric Street Sport.
it is mostly race ready. in order to be competative you would have to do a few simple mods (replace ez-start with pull or starter box, tuned pipe, tires). but for just racing in parking lots or in the back yard yes.
Everyday I beat my own previous record for number of consecutive days I've stayed alive.
for the last f---ing time the ez dont make a diff to the handaling or speed to notice
take it to the red line
Junk is something you keep for years and then throw it away 3 weeks before you need it.
rustler rules the rc world
aim is wdave13 plz
i dont like the new desert storm why? cause power is nothing with out control
if you are serious about racing you do not want the extra weight f the ez start. also, if you are going ot race you should get bearings
Anything is ready for racing it depends how competive you want to be and the drivers skill level too. Racing is I think 20% truck 80% driver a really great driver can make up for short comings in the truck, but a great truck can give a driver a little edge. The driver has more of an effect than the truck does. There are some weak areas that need to be taken care of like th plastic shocks and towers etc.... It really depends on how dedicated you are to racing and the amount of money and time you want to spend on it.
You can make miracles happen with a DREMEL TOOL
Nova Mega Big Block SX-15 EVO4 MS T powered Rustler enough said.
If you're actually looking for club racing, IFMAR,ROAR....then AE would be best, the RC10GT would be your best bet! NOT THE RTR VERSION
rustler-man, go ahead and think that but all the people on this board who have spent time out on the track will tell u the same thing....it does have an affect on the handling and suspensions response. also it tends to favor one side a little when in the air. take u'rs off and go see if u don't notice a diff.
Itís takes a lot of hops up to race a Rustler at the off-road tracks that I race at. For that matter, any truck you get will have to bullet proofed. My truck is competitive now, but Iíve invested lots of cash to get it that way. The reason for this is I donít like to be like everybody else. I like to do my own thing, so I built a Racing Rustler plane and simple. I could have gone the easy way and just sold my Rustler, and then went and got the RC10GT Factory Team or the XXX NT. But instead, I went on my creativity and built my own truck. Whatever way you go, youíll have to invest money and time into the RC racing hobby before you can become an expert (unless youíre a natural). It dose depend mostly on skill, but the truck will have to be modified for anyone to race it. I donít know that any RC racing pays cash prizes, so I donít think that weíll see any professional racers any time soon. All stock trucks will need to be BLUTT PROOF to withstand the vigorís or off-road. Traxxas in not racing or at the track as far as I know.
there actually are many pro rc racers. just look in any rc magazine at the races, and almost all of the names under the pro class are pro rc racers
From what I understand ROAR sanctioned races don't allow professional drivers. ROAR rules say in effect, only amateurs drivers and no cash prizes are allowed. To get paid for driving and racing constitutes a professional driver I think, and to me a professional has to get paid. Now I do see racers that are sponsored by lager companies. Peace
i sure they do get paid something in the pro races, even though we never hear about it. the last major race at my track was sponsered by lunsford. he lives 15 minutes away from me. the prize for the winners in all events was half of the entry fees for that event. its was packed and there were guys there from all over the north west. a guy i know won the Tmaxx division and he got like 3 or $400. i think it was like an hour race...pretty crazy.
