RPM makes a great head guard for the 2.5 engine. I wish they had one for the 3.3.
I bought it used so I am not sure. I know I ran about 2 gallons thru it.

The dual brake upgrade is a big improvement if you like to do high speed runs.
I am running a consistent 45mph with 20/70 gearing and 33% nitro fuel with my stock Rustler.
This is at 5300' elevation in Colorado. I would expect a higher speeds at lower elevation.
I have been looking for something to measure the speed of my Rustler and wanted to know if anyone has tried the Mini GPS Data Logger or similar devices.
If so how do you like it, any problems with...
I would like to switch from 20% to 33% nitro fuel in my 2.5 Rustler and wanted to know if there are any risks to my engine.
I will re tune for the new fuel.
