I have seen many people ask if a Nitro Rustler can have a 2 speed transmission put in it and many have said no. YES it can. I just completed one. I purchased a new Jato tranny from ebay including 54 tooth spur and disk break for $34. I drilled new holes in the Rustler frame and bolted the 2 speed in. I made a video and posted it in part 1 and part 2 on You Tube.
You guys check it out and let me know what you think. The last minute of part 2 is some gear shifting blistering speed!
Part 1 2 speed Nitro Rustler
Part 2 2 speed Nitro Rustler
I put a lot of effort documenting this incase anyone else was wanting to put a 2 speed transmission in a Rustler. Please comment.
OS 18 TZ, all Aluminum Rustler, 2 speed transmission. Insanely Fast. YES - I said 2 speed tranny in a rustler!
