Traxxas Rustler front shocks on rear of buggy. All else stock. Painted wheels black. Added stickers. Balded tires after countless runs.




Mangled my front skid brace after hitting uneven pavement a few times at full speed

Got a new one. My first one was getting pretty tired. Tires were bald, been running it for a year, the motor was probably almost done too.

I got another one too. I replaced the green one with a new one, and I got a red one called the Virhuck v01. There are several differences between these too.

Red one (Virhuck v01)
$39.99 shipped!!
380 motor (or 370)
Light bars/no lights
Annodized aluminum body panels
Hex hardware
Slipper Clutch
Adjustable gear mesh/ratio via oblong motor mount rotation
Much softer tires
Aluminum wheel hexes
Universal slider type front shafts

Green one (WLToys 12428)
$65 shipped ($72 shipped for 2nd one)
540 motor (17t or 19T depend on where you read)
NO Slipper
Lexan body panels
Phillips head hardware
Non adjustable gear mesh/ratio
Firm tires
Plastic wheel hexes
CVA front axles
6 led lights included on body

The green one is a little faster and a little more power off the line too. The red one comes with 2 alternate pinion gears, 2 extra fron A-arms and hinge pins, and hex wrenches. They both come wth lithium batteries 1500mah.

I've modified the green with with painted black wheels (stock chrome), short oil shocks on rear, added stickers. Red one is stock).




Chassis' are a litte different.

I tired some more aggressive tires on the green one and did not like it. Too much traction for pavement. Kept flipping it over every time I turn.

It's insane that these are so cheap. $40 shipped from inside the US for the red one. And the performance/quality is SO much better than any toy RC. Keep saying it, $40 shipped with battery!
