What is this Traxxas?

Post by rnoswal3434 »

I got this from a friend clearing out some stuff. I have no info on it tho except a TRX Nitro engine manual. So I guess its a traxxas TRX? Either a .12 or .15 engine in it. It was filthy but cleaned up ok. I put new bearings on all four corners (had broze bushings). I have had it running but needs tuning. I have been watching videos to figure it out with the different mixture screws. For sure a small fuel tank too.

Once, with help, I figure out as to what traxxas truck this is, I really want to put rear lower arms that don't make the rear toe in so much. It looks terrible. I see parts online Traxxas 2798 suspension arm mounts +/- one degree. I don't think its to but more the angle the mount sits on maybe for anti dive or the opposite. I am trynig to just swap the rear arms from left to right but its just a bit toed out that way. I understand the stability thing for toed in but the stock arms are ridiculously toed in.

If there is a anyone who can identify this and can maybe point me to rear lower arms that wont have the toe in but the right length, I would appreciate it.

It appears to be a vintage Nitro Rustler. There are manuals on the Traxxas site that could help you out with part #.
RC10, FX10, JRX2 PRO, Blackfoot, Bolink Eliminator...much more, probably too much. :lol:

Looks like a good candidate for the Power Up program.

Power Up program? Just the bigger engine? I have seen .19 5 port but I would like a bigger fuel tank too.

I was trying to find out if different rear swing arms would have less toe in than the stock ones. I do see lots of arms for sale but not that kind of info. So they are either less toe in on the Rustler already or are all the same and too much toe in for me. I will try a new posting that adresses this issue.

Thanks for identifying it as a Rustler from the previous post too.
