The Traxxas RC Rustler XL-5 2.4GHz RTR is a proven favourite 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 and XL-5 Electronic Speed Control. 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 blasts through puddles, mows through mud and shreds snow. Your R/C adventures are limited only by your imagination. With a top speed of 35+mph, Rustler leaves everything else back on the work bench.
The Rustler XL-5 is available in both red and blue, please state your preference when ordering otherwise we will dispatch whichever colour is in stock.
