Traxxas Rustler 4x4 VXL - Review, Road Test, Up A Tree and Breaking It

In this video I review, road test and manage to break the new Rustler 4x4 VXL. The first issue was that the rear drive shaft mount bolt came loose which caused the front tires to quit spinning. The shaft mount actually got stuck on the diff rod, probably bent it, and I had to pound it back into place. All good now tho.
The next issue was completely demolishing the rear plastic spur gear. Looks like the motor wasn't tightly secured from the factory and it ground down the plastic spur gear very quickly. Not to mention it's made of plastic. Overall I love this car and did in fact order a Hardened Metal Spur Gear to replace the faulty plastic one.
