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 all-new body design cheats the wind with its smooth curves and low-slung stance, while the outrageous new graphics dominate with style. The separate wing securely bolts to the new 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. New 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 Magnum 281™ transmission uses a planetary gear differential with built-to-last hardened steel gears. The gear diff requires no time-consuming adjustment and is virtually maintenance free. The oil-filled Ultra Shocks™ use exclusive X-ring seal technology for reduced friction and superior leak resistance. Traxxas engineers are dedicated to keeping you on the throttle, not on the workbench.

Tuned Exhaust System
EZ-StartCall it a factory 'works' pipe. The header and pipe length and shape are dyno-tuned for the TRX 2.5 to bring out the most power over the broadest RPM range. All that means is you can nail the throttle hard at any speed and get some serious 4-wheel roost.

 

EZ-StartEZ-Start® Electric Starting System

Fiber-Composite / 6061-T6
Aluminum Chassis

An upper, fiber-composite chassis deck stabilizes the fuel tank and ties in to the 6061-T6 lower aluminum chassis. The dual-plane design increases chassis rigidity allowing the suspension to effectively soak up the bumps. The blue-anodized aluminum chassis acts like a heat sink to draw additional heat away from the engine, plus it features countersunk screw holes to prevent speed-robbing drag.

 

Alias™ 2.8" Pre-Glued Tires with Foam Inserts
The Nitro Rustler comes with the impressive 2.8” Twin-Spoke™ mirror-chrome wheels. Alias™ rear tires with a Step-Pin design, and wrapper with Alias ribbed tires up front.

The Twin-Spoke wheels feature a lightweight horizontal bead that holds the tire to the rim even under extreme rpm. Performance-designed foam inserts are standard and all tires come pre-glued from the factory to get you rolling right out of the box.
