The 5 Traxxas RC Cars, Trucks, and Crawlers
According an article at SpecsTalk.com,
“Without a doubt, the best remote control car brand is none other than Traxxas. This brand has been in the picture since 1986 and since then no other brand was able to dethrone Traxxas from its position. Moreover, Traxxas is continuously working on new designs while also integrating their cars with unrivaled technology.
Traxxas, an old RC car maker company, makes one the most brilliant toy cars that are perfect for racing and off-road stunts. They provide two types of RC cars i.e., RTR Nitro as well as electric radio-controlled cars and trucks.”
And we have profiled the Traxxas XO-1 supercar here previously and Traxxas has been credited for making the first remote control vehicle that can exceed 100 miles per hour.
And, as the folks at Traxxas describe themselves, they are the number-one selling name in Ready-To-Race® (RTR) nitro and electric RC crawlers, cars, and trucks.
Thinking of picking up a Traxxas race car or truck for yourself or a family member? We’ve provided this brief overview of five Traxxas RC cars you can get here at Fundemonium Toys.
1. Ford GT 4WD XL-5
According to MotorBiscuit, in the mid-1960s, Ford decided to take on Ferrari’s dominance in racing at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
To do that, they created a new car called the Ford GT-40. In 2005, Ford introduced a more modern version called the Ford GT. It was only made in 2005 and 2006.
In 2015, Ford reintroduced the Ford GT again and put in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2016. The car came in first place in its class.
Traxxas has succeeded in capturing the Ford GT in a beautiful 1/10 scale replica that is faithful to the sleek and functional styling of the GT’s incredible flying buttress design. Every detail such as the taillights, wheels, and exhaust tips are there. Built to be driven, this Ford GT replica rests on the Traxxas 4-Tec 2.0 chassis that’s all-new from the ground up.
2. Slash 2WD XL5 Race Truck KIT
Short course RC trucks are off-road vehicles that are modeled after full-size off-road racing trucks. These RC vehicles are designed to handle off-road terrain and are a great option for open fields, parks, or woods.
The Traxxas Slash XL-5 2WD Short Course RC Truck Kit comes with a clear body, XL-5 ESC, Titan 550 12T motor, TQ transmitter, receiver, and steering servo. This kit requires assembly, painting the body, a battery, and a charger. The Slash XL-5 kit with electronics is a great way to learn the mechanics of an R/C truck or help teach someone new to the hobby.
And, once it’s assembled, it’s wildly fun to drive! The rear-wheel-drive Slash is made to fly over jumps and tear through turns at full-throttle. The 4-wheel independent suspension makes for a real-world driving experience for maximum fun and high-speed thrills.
Build your Slash from the ground up with all the required parts and electronics included in the box. Note that the battery and charger are sold separately.
All the parts are organized neatly in labeled bags with a fully illustrated color manual to make building a learning experience that’s also fun. The Slash assembly kit is perfect for drivers of almost any age or skill level.
3. Traxxas 1/10 Scale Ford Mustang GT
The Ford Mustang GT. For over 45 years, the Mustang has outsold every other sports car in America.
Traxxas pays tribute to the unique spirit and attitude of the Ford Mustang with a 1/10 scale replica. From the sculpted front grill to the sloping Fastback design, every detail is faithfully captured. Check out the Traxxas Mustang GT today and discover the soul of the American muscle car.
The Traxxas 4-Tec 2.0 Ford Mustang GT Ready-to-Race AWD Supercar can reach a top speed of over 30mph with included optional pinion gear.
This miniature muscle car comes equipped with the Traxxas XL-5 ESC and Titan 12T brushed motor for unsurpassed performance and reliability. Simply add a battery and a charger, and you’re ready to roll!
4. Traxxas Slash 4X4 VXL Race Truck
The Traxxas Slash set the standard for durability, performance, and fun by which all other short course trucks are measured. And the Slash can handle all the high-flying, fender-banging, all-weather adventure you can put it through!
The Slash 4X4’s powerful brushless motor provides hair-raising speeds of more than 60mph, while the TQi radio system provides for precise control.
Ready to go now? The Slash 4X4 is fully assembled and Ready-To-Race® right from the box and the TQi 2.4GHz radio system is already installed and adjusted.
It features a Velineon brushless power system, painted and decaled body, pre-glued tires, along with detailed instructions. Simply add the right battery and charger to suit your needs and you’re all set.
5. Traxxas Rustler® 4X4 VXL Stadium Truck
RC stadium trucks combine truck-style bodies with an open-wheeled layout similar to buggies. They usually have large, wide tires for increased ground clearance and improved stability.
The all-new Traxxas Rustler 4X4 VXL provides the speed and classic style of their top-selling Rustler with impressive 4-wheel drive performance, increased durability, and even more fun!
Underneath the slick exterior, a heavy-duty driveline is powered by a Velineon brushless motor. Featuring large Talon EXT wheels and tires, they provide versatility and grip for any terrain, from backyard trails to concrete parking lots.
As the folks at Traxxas say, “Rustler 4X4 VXL destroys convention to become the new performance and fun standard for 4X4 stadium trucks!”
