What are the differences between a Nitro Sport/SE and the Nitro Rustler 2.5?
The Nitro Sport SE is designed to be a less expensive entry into the nitro R/C hobby. It has a powerful Pro.15 engine, which features dual needle carburetor adjustments. The Nitro Sport SE chassis is made from both composite and aluminum materials, and the transmission is equipped with a slipper clutch. It also uses a simple direct steering mechanism, and has a top speed of 38mph. The Nitro Rustler 2.5 is the big brother to the Sport SE, and features the very high performance and critically acclaimed TRX 2.5 Racing Engine. The Nitro Rustler 2.5 also features a bellcrank steering system, full aluminum chassis, and full ball bearings. The gearbox, suspension, and shocks are the same on both trucks. The incredible power of the highly sophisticated TRX 2.5 Racing Engine propels the Nitro Rustler 2.5 to top speeds of over 47mph (over 50mph can be achieved with the optional 22-tooth clutch bell gear). Due to the increased adjustability and speed, the Nitro Rustler 2.5 is better suited for more experienced enthusiasts. Both the Nitro Sport SE and the Nitro Rustler 2.5 are equipped with the onboard *EZ-Start®™ electric starting system. *The EZ-Start® electric starting system fires up the Nitro Sport SE, while the Nitro Rustler 2.5 is started by the EZ-Start® 2 electric starting system made exclusively for the TRX 2.5 engine.
