Got my first rustler back in 1994 from J&C hobbies. It replaced my Tamyia blitzer beetle. I gave it to my little brother for getting and holding a job when he was about 17. Hes 33 now and still has it.
It came with an MSC. It came with bushings. When I lived in AZ he sent it to me and I rebuilt it with good bearings, I did a racing transmission, idler gear, new electronics. The whole 9 yards except for brushless.
So I have been trying to get him to go brushless ever since it came out, but it was too expensive back then. I recently got a 1/16 slash vxl, and so he decided to find a bl system so he can keep up.
Yeah, I know, it's that other brand, but it was 80 bucks shipped NIB. Hopefully we can get a wife or 2 to videotape them running together (the trucks not the wives), if not we can at least get a GPS speed run/video.
