Being new to the RC community (again), I got a Traxxas Rustler VXL for Christmas. Upgrades have been coming in as I roll on, turning mostly plastic to aluminum. I kept reading that I would need a wheelie bar due to the power of the Rustler VXL. Sure enough, I definitely needed one after the 5th consecutive uncontrollable wheelie. Then comes the Traxxas Wheelie Bar Assembly. The looks of the wheelie bar itself threw me off for a bit…. after installation, all was well.
