For Sale: Traxxas Nitro Sport and 2.5R Rustler

Both trucks have seen their fair share of use and abuse. I am not going to lie and say that these trucks have had an easy life. But I did use them off-road a lot more than I did on the road. I will list the individual cars and the extra parts that are on them.

I am looking to sell everything as a complete set and don't want to sell individual parts. This will be shipped in one box which would consist of both cars and a toolbox with all the parts. My asking price is $225 OBO + shipping. It will be shipped out from Amelia, Ohio. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me via PM on here. And now onto the trucks.

The Nitro Sport does not run nor will it start, so I have more or less relegated it to being the parts car since a lot of the parts are interchangable with the Rustler. It has RPM suspension arms, RPM front bumper and several other Traxxas parts that have been replaced. Also has the Proline Masher tires with Proline wheels. I kept this truck around in case I broke something on the Rustler. Aftermarket air filter.

The Rustler does start and run but it was having idling issues last time I tried to run it. Probably due to the old fuel I was using. Both cars have been run on 20% nitro fuel. The Rustler has RPM suspension arms, front bumper and shock towers. I have steel drive shafts and aluminum shocks that I have for the car as well. I have a lot of other spare parts for this as well as you will see in the pictures. Basically I have spares of the most common parts to break on the truck. This truck comes with the Proline Dirt Hawg II tires and Proline wheels. It also comes with a BonzaiBar aluminum wheelie bar, but it has one wheel that is split and needs replaced. It also has a Proline Crowd Pleaser body. Steel spur gear.

Other miscellaneous stuff included is 2 radios with yellow and blue crystals, 3 sets of wheels and tires, spare sets of body pins, aluminum GTR shock bodies, 2 extra 72 tooth spur gears, original suspension arms and front shock tower, 2 sets of tools, extra glow plug and an aftermarket air filter that I would only run on the car if I was driving on pavement. Now on with the pictures and details about the wheels and tires.

Nitro Rustler

A video to show that the Nitro Rustler will turn over. It is out of fuel so I was not able to start it.
