Monster trucks are a huge part of the RC scene for good reason: it's never not fun to conquer rough terrains, crush other people's cars, and, pretty much, destroy everything you run over. And that's the same spirit powering the new Traxxas Brushed Stampede 4x4.
Billed as a truck that "just doesn't know when to quit," it's built to withstand any monster truck mayhem challenge you throw its way. About as indestructible as RCs ca get, you can drive it anywhere, smash it into anything, and it's still going to stand tall at end of the day.
The Traxxas Brushed Stampede 4x4 is built on the long-proven shaft-driven 4WD system and modular design of the popular Slash 4x4. That means, it's not just aggressive in looks -- it's as unrelenting a performer, too. In fact, Traxxas claims it handles like a racing machine, likely much more so than any monster truck that came before it. With super high ground clearance, fiber-composite chassis, long-arm suspension, Chrome All-Star 2.8-inch wheels, and Chevron Maxx, its a lock to drive over anything, especially with a Titan 550 12-Turn motor and XL-5 ESC providing power under the hood. It's all waterproof, too, so you water crossings, muddy terrain, and even icy backyards are no match for this beast.
The best part? It ships fully-assembled and ready to race, complete with a TQ 2.4GHz radio system and ProGraphix painted body graphics. It's available now from your favorite RC shops, priced at $520.
