Outfitted with over $400 in premium upgrades, Rustler 4X4 VXL Ultimate is like a whole new truck. Experience the pinnacle of stadium truck performance with Rustler 4X4 VXL Ultimate.


Carve corners like a pro thanks to Rustler 4X4 VXL Ultimate’s adjustable sway bars and ultra-smooth, PTFE-coated aluminum GTR shocks. Rustler 4X4 VXL Ultimate’s agility and 4-wheel drive grip is further enhanced by its 2.8″ Gravix™ tires. Pioneered on XRT®, Gravix tires deliver outstanding grip on hard-packed surfaces with fast and quiet-running precision.


A Traxxas Link™ Wireless Module comes standard on Rustler 4X4 VXL Ultimate along with factory-installed telemetry sensors to unlock the full potential of the TQi™ transmitter. Adjust the transmitter’s settings on the fly and record real-time telemetry data like speed, RPM, and battery voltage on your mobile device using the free Traxxas Link app.


Rustler 4X4 VXL Ultimate comes fully loaded with aluminum upgrades for maximum strength and durability and they’re color-matched to the body. Brightly anodized caster and steering blocks, axle carriers, and chassis stiffener look as good as they perform and give Rustler 4X4 VXL Ultimate the brute strength required for extreme driving.

TQi Transmitter with Wireless Module

Rustler 4X4 Ultimate’s 2.4 GHz TQi transmitter comes with a factory-installed Wireless Module to access the full range of powerful TQi tuning and telemetry tools on your mobile device. Use the free Traxxas Link™ app to control steering and throttle sensitivity; steering percentage; braking strength; and throttle trim by simply touching and dragging the sliders on the high-definition graphic interface.

Body Reinforcements

The factory-installed body reinforcements provide added protection for your Rustler during extreme driving. These high-strength composite reinforcements help spread impact forces through the body, ensuring long-lasting fun through the toughest landings and hardest hits.

2.8″ Gravix Tires

Pioneered on the 60+ mph XRT®, Gravix race tires are a revolutionary new hybrid design with densely packed biting edges and sipes. They deliver outstanding grip on hard-packed surfaces along with fast and quiet-running precision on pavement.

Factory-Installed Telemetry

Factory-installed telemetry sensors collect and record Rustler 4X4 Ultimate’s telemetry data as you drive. Add the free Traxxas Link app to your mobile device to view real-time speed, RPM, temperature, and battery voltage data. The full-color app dashboard is fully customizable with up to nine different dial or digital readout gauges.

Low-CG Chassis

Rustler’s innovative charcoal gray low-CG chassis positions weight down low for aggressive handling. A wide track and extended wheelbase keep Rustler planted in the turns to provide the perfect balance of stability and quick responses.

RXT Wheels

Large 2.8″ RXT wheels give Rustler 4X4 Ultimate terrain-conquering ground clearance with a splash of style. Black chrome beadlock trim contrasts the charcoal gray wheels for a high-tech look.

GTR Shocks

GTR shocks represent the peak of suspension technology. The blue PTFE-coated aluminum shock bodies hold over 70% more oil than the standard Ultra Shocks™ and their slick titanium-nitride coated shafts resist scuffing, increase durability, and eliminate “stiction.” X-ring seals keep oil in and dirt out for smooth, consistent damping, and plush suspension action. Spring preload and ride height changes are as simple as turning the threaded collars–no spacers required.

Aluminum Hub Carriers

6061-T6 aluminum stub axle carriers add both strength and beauty to Rustler 4X4 Ultimate without compromising its carefully tuned suspension geometry.

Aluminum Center Driveshaft

The color-matched center driveshaft is formed from extruded aluminum and extremely lightweight for lower rotating mass. There are no dogbones to wear out, no drive cups to wobble and the shaft runs perfectly straight and true with superior rigidity and durability.

High Speed Metal Gear Servo

Rustler 4X4 Ultimate needs a fast and powerful servo to match its lightning-quick reflexes. The fully waterproof 2075R digital metal gear servo combines commanding steering authority with the superior durability of all-metal gears for the ultimate driving experience.

Chassis Stiffener

A brightly anodized aluminum chassis stiffener provides structural reinforcement for high loads and hard landings. Made from thick extruded aluminum, the oval-shaped stiffener increases torsional rigidity and dramatically strengthens Rustler 4X4 Ultimate’s chassis to reduce flex.

Aluminum Wheel Nuts

Rustler’s aluminum wheel nuts lock tightly onto the wheels for intense tire-shredding action. The color-matched anodized finish contrasts the dark wheels for maximum impact.

Aluminum Caster and Steering Blocks

Rustler 4X4 Ultimate’s caster and steering blocks combine the strength of 6061-T6 aluminum with carefully engineered steering and suspension geometry. The brilliant-blue anodized finish adds high-tech style with laser-etched logos to show off your genuine Traxxas performance parts.

Adjustable Sway Bars

Rustler 4X4 Ultimate’s front and rear sway bars reduce chassis roll and increase corner speed on high-traction surfaces—perfect for hard-packed tracks and pavement running. Adjustable linkages allow for fine tuning to suit different tracks and conditions.
