Not a lot of activity here. Thankfully the Rustler is pretty much PNP

I'll help where I can

How long does the motor last

How many years? Months hours etc

Never had one and was wondering how long until I replace the motor

Stock engine is a piece - don't expect long life from a nitro off-road engine. There is no piston ring.

Replace it when performance drops.

There is no "best".

Losi and Kyosho both make excellent 1/8th scale chassis that target racers. Traxxis is more of a basher in this class.

Normal for a nitro unless its coming out of the seals.
