Traxxas 44096-3 Rustler Nitro 2WD Stadium Truck - Silver/Blue
Hard-Charging 50+mph Performance
The Nitro Rustler is the first name in high performance 2WD nitro stadium trucks. Powered by the proven performance of the TRX 2.5 Racing Engine, Nitro Rustler totally out-muscles the competition with top speeds beyond 50 mph! The TRX 2.5 also pumps out the torque for brutal, wheel-standing launches and absolutely ruthless acceleration. The sleek body design cheats the wind with its smooth curves and low-slung stance, while the outrageous graphics dominate with style. The separate wing securely bolts to the body with precise aluminum hex hardware. Chrome 2.8 Twin Spoke™ rims are wrapped with pre-glued Alias™ step-pin tires in the rear and Alias™ ribbed tires up front. The high-tech rubber compound ensures great grip on a variety of surfaces. Grey-molded composite parts are thoughtfully integrated to enhance the look of the chassis. Fast, light, and loaded with power, Nitro Rustler's power-sliding, dirt roosting attitude will have you reaching for the throttle again and again.
The Most Horsepower
Where Power Meets Technology® Nitro Rustler's TRX 2.5 Racing Engine is nothing short of amazing. It is the most advanced engine in its class and comes loaded with all the hottest performance hardware. The two-needle composite slide carburetor, trick porting, and free-flowing rear exhaust deliver class-leading horsepower and high-revving speeds over 50mph. Plus only Traxxas has the true push-button starting convenience and safety of the EZ-Start® Electric Starting System. Traxxas makes nitro easy so that anyone can experience the hard-charging action and intense driving excitement Nitro Rustler delivers. Hammer the throttle anywhere in the power band and Nitro Rustler responds with searing acceleration and the sound of pure, high-revving nitro power.
Accelerate Faster/Corner Faster/Brake Harder/Stay in Control
Traxxas Stability Management TSM® allows you to experience all the extreme power, speed, and acceleration that was engineered into your Nitro Rustler making it much easier to control on common slippery surfaces such as loose dirt, smooth concrete, and even ice and snow. Punch it off the line and TSM goes to work sensing the vehicle’s direction and making steering corrections to provide straight-ahead full-throttle acceleration without fishtailing, spinouts, and loss of control. TSM also works during cornering, first making intuitive corrections to maintain your line, and then allowing you to hammer the throttle earlier in the turn for much faster exit speeds. Braking is dramatically improved as TSM works to keep you arrow straight until you come to a complete stop.
