Heavy-duty Driv­e­train

RC Car Action - - PERFORMANCE TEST -

A pow­er­ful brush­less sys­tem and fat, grippy tires are a recipe for driv­e­train trou­bles if the parts aren’t built to take the torque. Traxxas avoids any wor­ries in that depart­ment by spec’ing a deeply splined, ex­truded-alu­minum drive­shaft; Revo-spec sil­i­cone-filled dif­fer­en­tials with metal ring and pin­ion gears; and a fat set of tele­scop­ing uni­ver­saljoint drive­shafts newly re­vised for the Rustler

4X4. Traxxas also pulled a trick from the E-revo and up­graded the slip­per clutch’s pads from sin­tered fiber to solid alu­minum. The high­ca­pac­ity pads are just what you need for high-power, high-grip dura­bil­ity.
