The best-selling Rustler known for fun and durability, just got a new look. Taking cues from the paint scheme on Courtney Force’s Funny Car, this Traxxas favorite come out of the box with a paint scheme that’s just as fun as it is.

The Traxxas Rustler is a proven favorite with a formula for rugged fun that nothing else can touch. The Rustler blows the doors off the competition with more power, smoother control, better grip, and performance that makes it one of the fastest Ready-To-Race® electric trucks available. The Rustler rips off-road with its powerful Titan® 12-Turn modified 550 motor, XL-5 Electronic Speed Control, and Revo®-spec Torque-Control™ slipper clutch. It's made for power-sliding, full-throttle, off-road action and aggressive driving fun—and not just in the dirt! With Traxxas' exclusive waterproof electronics, Rustler can blast through puddles, mow through mud and shred snow. Your R/C adventures are limited only by your imagination. And with a top speed of 35+mph*, Rustler simply leaves everything else back on the work bench.
